I just rooted this using the Droid 3 zip file provided here: DROID 3 easy root script v7.zip Use at your own risk.. of course. If you brick, burn, blow up or otherwise harm your phone, refrigerator, wife or school using this method, don't PM or make nasty posts to me: it's your fault. I downloaded the zip file to my downloads folder on my laptop. Extracted it in the same folder. Connected my phone via USB cable. Left it on "charge only" with the screen live (awake). Clicked the "Click to Root the Droid 3" bat file. Watched for about one minute until "your phone should be rooted now" popped into the terminal screen on my laptop.
