Default atrix lost root with 2.3.6 upgrade

just got the phone. love it. rooted it with a one-click program. perfect. started loading programs. then decided to check for system upgrades, not knowing what it really did.

not root. apps broken or not showing up.

- How can i root this new 2.3.6 ?

- or how can i revert to 2.3.4, which worked perfectly and came with t he phone?

I only had it rooted for a couple days, so i hadn't backed up anything yet - which means i didn't know how yet.

is there anything i can do?

thank you, all.

trust me, i tried Pete's one-click root as soon as i realized what happened. no go. Fails. they must have fixed the exploit. sofar, there's about zilch on the net regarding this problem.

Thumbs up Just found a root guide that worked after the update

Guide can be found @ androidadvices dot com/root-motorola-atrix-4g-45141-gingerbread-236-firmware/2/

Had to use the alt method but it worked great, hope it helps!

It doesn't work for me, I can't get past this bit:

"After this, your phone will be rebooted. Wait for the phone to get rebooted and then you need to type in the command as “adb shell” and press enter and wait till the shell gets restarted."

My phone reboots in the step before that but it is no longer in "fastboot-mode".

Keep on going and make sure you put it in debugging mode before you go into fastboot at the beginning
