Default Rooting your Motorola XPRT

Here is an useful step by step guide for those interested in rooting their Motorola XPRT:

All credit to XDA developers: [APP]SuperOneClick v1.9.1 (Root, Unroot, Enable Non-Market App) - xda-developers

Disclaimer: Do it at your own risk. In some cases it could void warranties. Check with Motorola/Sprint first.


I have tested this method using my Motorola XPRT with Froyo 2.2.2, System Version 4.1.15.MB612.Sprint.en.US

1. Download the SuperOneClickRoot v1.9.1 package with drivers:
SuperOneClick | shortfuse.org

2. Unzip the file in a new folder location of your preference (i.e My Documents/XPRT)

3. In your phone go to: Settings -> Applications -> Development and select "USB Debugging"

4. Connect the phone to your computer using a USB cable. In your phone make sure you are not mounting the SD. Instead select "Charge Only"

5. Windows will detect a new device and will ask for the drivers, select to "Install from an specific location" and browse your harddrive until you get to the folder you created in step 2. Inside this folder look for another folder name "motorola." It will contain the proper drivers for your device. Then Select OK.

6. Windows should install your device in a few minutes and it should be ready to use.

7. Go to the folder created in step 2 and look for SuperOneClick.exe. Open this application.

8. Click "Root" in the main menu and your done!

9. Enjoy installing root apps!

I wonder if this will work on my iMac... and it would be AWESOME if Cyanogen supported this phone, then I would get it! But I dont think CM would though. We can only dream right?

I used Win XP to root the XPRT but you can try this website to download and install the drivers: USB and PC Charging Drivers - Motorola Mobility, Inc. USA

Newbe question...
I am very happy with the OS as is but I understand that if I root the phone, I can uninstall some of the system apps like Sprint TV. Is this true? If so, do I uninstall them like any other app at that point?

Yes, you will need Root Explorer from Android Market to remove the stock bloatware

Great!
Couple more newbie questions.

When I root the phone, does it wipe the phone out forcing me to reinstall everything?

Other than being able to install non-market apps and custom ROMs, are there any other benefits?

Rooting wont erase anything, so you are good there. I rooted mine so I could take screenshots and free hotspot.

1. Download SuperOneClickRoot from here:
Rooting your Motorola XPRT

2. Once you're rooted, get Wireless Tether free from Android Market.

3. Profit!

Are you referring to this one :https://market.android.com/details?id=android.tether&feature=search_result

It mentions something about a Netfilter-enabled kernel. I have no idea what that is.

This didn't work for my Motorola XPRT.

WinXP didn't try to auto-install anything and couldn't update drivers because NO version I could find had any Motorola drivers.

Updated linkage for a SuperOneClick WITH Motorola drivers--or other helpful advice would be appreciated.

I notice the guide says to download Version 1.9.1, but now the site only shows 2.3.3.

I'm assuming an updated version won't make a difference in the process of rooting? Or will it?

Thanks.

Wow, there sure are a lot of new members in here: welcome to the forums!

Enjoy your rooted XPRT and please remember that, once you're rooted, make nandroid backups before doing anything fancy to your phone! It will save you a lot of grief!

Default XPRT Root

with a teensy update (ADB) to drjbliss's root exploit found here: (XDA), I rooted my Boost XPRT this morning

I repacked it with ADB fix, USB drivers (Motorola Device Manager), and updated Superuser.apk here: (MediaFire)

To root:
1. Install DeviceManager (should take care of drivers. If not, let me know.)
2. Double-click "run.bat"

Don't forget to Thank drjbliss!

As a follow on from above message the USA firm has told me the item is sim free and will run ok on my Orange Sim Card. As an aside the phone will not work in the States on TMobile or AT&T. Before I purchase this phone can anybody advise if it will run ok in the UK? as the last thing I wish to do is to spend time in fannying around with the mechanics of the XPRT which probably I will not completely understand!
Any help or advice will be appreciated.
