If you accepted the update, you won't be able to root. The update closed the exploit used by SuperOneClick and they haven't come up with a new root method for the Atrix last I looked over at XDA. There was some talk about waiting until the April update that allows for the upload speed fix anyway, as every time they push an update to the phone they tend to close the exploit used in previous rooting methods. No reason to waste it if we know another update is already coming next month...

That's not true about not being able to root your phone after this new update.

Since the phone was unrooted before the update, there is no way to get root back, unless he SBF back to 1.2.6 retail sbf, then aroot your phone, don't do any other mods or unroot your phone, then follow the steps in the link below

Here is all the info you need to get your root back after the update:

[SCRIPT] Root for 4.1.57 (RELEASED!) (requires 4.1.26 rooted) - xda-developers


You now have root again if you follow the steps correctly... good luck!

+1, It worked great for me also you can reinstall webtopmod if you follow the ADB version, the batch file doesnt work but manual does.

Yes, you're right. But this isn't really rooting your phone after taking the update, this is undoing everything to go back to the begining and then using their script to KEEP root


And the script works GREAT!
