Exclamation Rooting Bell Atrix - Best And Latest Method?

Ok so because this is such a new phone there seems to be some confusion in the "new Atrix owner" rooting community on what the best method is.
I my self am confused.

Is there a difference in rooting method between the AT&T and Bell Atrix?

Just sort of looking for a definitive method for Bell user's when they come to this thread looking for the "Canadian way", especially considering the fact that we can't load Roms just yet because of something not being leaked and or hacked yet...kinda makes me think that we would have a different method than that of AT&T Atrix.

With that said i just came from a Telus HTC Hero and i had to use a different method to root my hero back then versus even another GSM Hero from the UK!

Seems Canadian Carrier's version's of phones are a little more tricky to root than other countries.

That all being said.

Can someone please post a link and or make a guide for Bell Atrix owners in order to prevent catastrophic failure ?

cheers and look forward to rooting!

It's not trickier to root a Bell phone, its just different. I would imagine that it is due to the fact that the firmware is slightly different between Bell and AT&T. I used aRoot. It worked perfectly, the first time. Everything you need is over @ XDA. Look in the dev section of the Atrix forums and you'll find what you seek.

cheers weasel.
Ya i was over there and i found the gingerbreak.exe method.
Just wanting to make sure this is an applicable method to the Bell Atrix so's not to brick it using a method meant for the AT&T method.

Alright so, thanks to Roze who posted this link [SCRIPT] GladRoot v4.2 (Bell 0.37.4, AT&T 1.26/1.52/1.57 Supported - Now w/ UnRoot) - xda-developers i was able to root my bell atrix.

If you have problems with your computer installing the atrix drivers, head on over to the motorola support site and you will eventually find your way to downloading a file called motohelper. This will install all the drivers you need like magic!


the root process was very very easy!
The hardest part i found was wondering why the drivers were not installing on my pc. But once i found the motohelper file it was a breeze.

have fun and i hope this helped a few.

So since all the previous methods are not needed anymore a good place to start is here [PUDDING] International House of Pudding! BL Unlock/root thread (Updated 07/23/2011) - xda-developers

AND i have actually created a YoutTube video guide to help get you from where ever to an unlocked bootloader with root and 2.3.4 GingerBread which can be found here ‪Motorola Atrix: Unlock and Upgrade to GB - Unlock P1‬‏ - YouTube

just make sure you pay attention to the warnings and watch all videos before going back and starting the process =) hope this helps...

p.s. To the mod's, you may post this in the sticky at the top of this section=)

cheers

I noticed in your description you used Gingerbreak to root the phone. I read on xda forums though the original gingerbreak thread that you cannot use this method for BELL OLYLA_U4_0.37.23. What's your take on this?

edit: Now that I've watched most of your videos I see you dive straight into unlocking bootloader. Right now I don't want to mess around with RSDLite (yet Im sure I will later when I've read some more :P). What is a good method for someone who just wants to root their phone and that's all? "Preinstall method?"

well there are two methods, one using gingerbreak while still on froyo and then there is another method which doesn't have a name for gingerbread [Unlocked Only][ROOT][07-27-2011] CWM Recovery ROOT for any ROM - xda-developers

or this one [HOWTO] Root any Atrix after .sbf flash - xda-developers

Yeah, the last method you posted was what I was referring to when I say
'preinstall' method. Has anyone done this to their stock Bell ATRIX after the latest update?

Well if you read the thread and some of the post's by other users you can find out for yourself pretty easily what works for AT&T and what works for Bell users (international users)

As i say in almost all my video's if you need assistance then im just an email away...but it helps if your subscribed to my channel thesmokingandroid@gmail.com

Just to clarify, this will work for a Bell Atrix with the recent Gingerbread update from Bell (v2.3.4). The current build on my Atrix is (4.5.2A-51_OLL-17). Current System: (45.2.17.MB860.BellMobility.en.CA). Is it compatible?

Thanks

That thread was posted on Feb 11, 2011, but the Gingerbread update for Bell Atrix didn't come out until Aug 29th. That usually means that the root is for the AT&T Atrix isnt it?

I tried from a terminal emulator on phone and got the prompt for superuser. Looks like brief mobile guide works, unless I am missing something?

Agreed. The BriefMobile method works perfectly. Read the comments section before you do it, tho.

So if I am reading correctly (sorry I have an AT&T atrix so I am not able to test and verify) the method listed in post one of the main sticky here: Root for ALL/SBF Flash/Unlocking Bootloader - Updated 25-July2011 05:18 PST, which is the same metod in briefmobile.com also works perfectly on the Bell Atrix? If so I will update that thread to say that

Sorry to be redundant, but this should work for the latest Gingerbread update for the Bell Atrix am I right? I will be continuing after your confirmation. Thanks.

Default Bell Atrix at OTA 2.3.4

I am also anxiously awaiting the verdict on weather Briefmobile works on Bell Atrix OTA 2.3.4. for root.

Can someone explain, is the root.img tat is used a service flash, meaning all apps and settings are kept intact, or will the resultant rooted phone be completely reset?

TIA

Thumbs up Bell Atrix at OTA 2.3.4 rooted - confirmation

I went ahead and tried the Brief Mobile link in post #19. This one uses an image file called root.img. I can confirm this worked for my Bell atrix at OTA 2.3.4. The other link which uses a file called preinstall.img may work as well but it is not the one I used, just to be clear.

This is all done with a boot loader locked phone which lost root after the OTA update to 2.3.4.

I have a clear screen shot of the cmd window as it all unfolded, just can't post yet.

Things that were not clear in the link to me were entering Fastboot, the cable had to be unplugged for this, otherwise you entered rsd something or other. Once I entered fastboot, I plugged in the cable and proceeded to the command window in windows.

Also, when it reboots after the reboot command, expect it to boot up completely. The phone will look like it is ready to use, you won't see anything on it when you issue the remaining commands. It is all done from the windows command window.

Thanks for all the info, love the site!

I applied the briefmobile root procedure to my Bell Atrix 2.3.4 last night. Seems to have worked ok. I'm not sure if it was needed but I added "/preinstall/su" at the end of step 6.

My questions for anyone who knows are.....

1) Will applying the next eventual OTA update be safe to apply over the root?

2) If I need to, how do I unroot?

Default Unroot brief mobile

The following:

It would be nice to have a little section in the OP for the recommended method to unroot in case the phone needs to go for warranty repair.

Here you go:
"su;mount -o rw,remount /system;rm /system/bin/su;mount -o ro,remount /system"

Came from here:

[HOWTO] Root any Atrix after .sbf flash - Page 18 - xda-developers

Havn't tried it though.

After I've proceeded with the root, it looked like it worked, but after I restarted the phone it booted up fine, but my apps list is bugged out. All my icons are black except a selected few and half of the app list is overlapped with the homescreen.

Also, the carrier signal is disconnected even when I have signal. What should I do?

----
EDIT: After the second restart, the phone looks like it's running back to normal. Scared me for a second there. Will follow up for an update if anything else happens. Thanks again Pepissed for the confirmation.

Default Rooting Bell Atrix 2.3.4 - super easy method just discovered!!

Hi,

I'd been reviewing the methods to re-root my Atrix (Bell, Toronto) after applying the [COLOR=#035c9f !important][COLOR=#035c9f !important]Gingerbread[/COLOR][/COLOR] update 2.3.4
Quite frankly, I was overwhelmed, not an android expert by any means, and not real confident about typing out
lines of script in a command prompt on a shaky vista pc, especially since last time I rooted on [COLOR=#035c9f !important][COLOR=#035c9f !important]Froyo[/COLOR][/COLOR] was so easy
with Gingerbreak v1.2. Anywaaaaay, came across this method tonight:

Pete's Motorola Root Tools

and saw a sidebar on one forum that said "reportedly works on Atrix too, but I haven't tried it."

For me it was roll the dice on a one click method, or tolerate Bell/[COLOR=#035c9f !important][COLOR=#035c9f !important]Moto[/COLOR][/COLOR] bloat, as I was afraid of xda/briefmobile methods...
long story short, I was re-rooted in 10 min, reinstalled root checker, check!, root explorer, and titanium backup, and am in
the process of freezing out bloat now.

I have successfully rooted and unlocked my bootloader this week. For the rooting process, the BriefMobile link above works prefectly on my Bell Atrix (on the 2.3.4 stock OTA Gingerbread update).

This method is now out of date for Atrix's already on 2.3.4

However If you have an Atrix with 2.2 then you can still use these methods

Hi, I just got an unlocked ATRIX 4G from bell, running android version 2.3.6 and build number 4.5.2A-51_OLL-17.8 and i'm wondering if someone can recommend me the best rooting method for this...

I've been to the XDA Forum, specifically the pudding thread and I'm quite confused. All I ever wanted is to put custom roms on my phone and not really overclock it.

Any ideas is appreciated, thanks!

Try this link [04/Jan][ROOTING/UNROOTING] DooMLoRD's Easy Rooting Toolkit [v4.0](zergRush Exploit) - xda-developers


Will root bell atrix 2.3.6 in 1 click ( 3 minutes ) using a windows machine.


Will also unroot it just as easily.


Hope this helps.

Enjoy
