    Sorry if this is posted somewhere but I found this to be the easiest way to root your Bionic. If it does not detect your phone right away, disable usb debugging and then reenable...works great.... just dont rom yet... be careful.

    Good that it's rooted. Bad that the bootloader is STILL encrypted. I love moto hardware. I do not like Moto bootloader policy. Ok.. sorry.. back to the topic.

    I accidentally booted into the bootloader once - I think I can get back into it - but I'm not sure how you actually check, other than trying to fool with the current ROM - and I don't wanna do that.

    Rooted but now I'm regretting it. I'm still having an issue with my apps uninstalling/disappearing anytime I reboot my phone. Even with Titanium BU after rooting, I power down the phone, power up and TB is missing. I can't take the phone back rooted.. Now what?

    PS I tried using Pete's to Unroot - but receiving an error msg stating that my device was not a D3.

    Suggestions?

    To UNROOT. Download Terminal from market by Jack Palevich. Run it and allow superuser permission when it prompts. Type the following commands in terminal (note uppper case S!). I'm pretty sure I have the partitions right for this phone but I haven't tried:

    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t ext3 /dev/block/system /system
    rm /system/app/Superuser.apk
    rm /system/xbin/busybox
    rm /system/xbin/su

    Are you moving apps to the SDCard? They will seem to disappear then but a reboot of the phone should bring them back.

    And I'm curious - with 8 GB of storage space why move them to the SDCard? that 8GB is, for all intents and purposes, an internal SDCard anyway....

    For my Mac, running OS Lion, I used the following link and followed the instructions except I had to manually change the file permissions of adb.osx and run_to_root_your_droid3.sh using the using the terminal with the following commands: "chmod +x adb.osx" and "chmod +x run_to_root_your_droid3.sh".

    [ROOT] Droid 3 root instructions (One Click added for Windows/ Linux/ OSX)
    Hope this helps everyone. Before that I was getting an error stating that all of the files weren't unzipped.

    Hmmm. I had installed Dual mount SD so I was not getting a notification to mount charge only and was trying to figure out wtf y'all were talking about....

    Dual mount doesn't work with this phone yet anyway - if the SDCard gets mounted then it is inaccessible from the phone....

    Off to play with rooting and file editing and such so that I can get a nice quadrant score ... er, I mean so I can get some nice performance out of the phone lol
