    I use the second link before when I tried motofail and it didnt work. I also tried R3L3AS3DRoot and I dont know which one did this but one of those gave me a boot error pretty sure it was R3L3AS3DRoot. Luckily I did this on a replacement phone and I can send the replacement phone back and a get a new replacement. So I guess when I get the new replacement ill try it again.

    Use Razr's Edge then. I've been using it flawlessly for the last two weeks with these ICS leaks and it works very well.

    No that's for ics only. You need motofail to root .902 and can get it in the all things root thread

    Yeah I have tried motofail some many times and it never works! You guys keep telling me to use it and it never has worked on the two phones i have tried it on my drivers are up to date. My phone is on usb debugging and usb charging only and I unzip the file and run it, my phone restarts twice and bam the root does work at all. I dont think im doing anything wrong. Any ideas??

    My computer is running windows 7 and im using the windows motofail file so i know thats right

    No I do not have the super user app installed

    I previously installed a root checker and it said i didnt have root

    Should i update to 905 and use Razrs edge or can I use razrs edge on 902 to root my phone?

    So it turns out that the zip file i downloaded and extracted from was missing the actual motofail file which would explain why it kept failing and not rooting. So i downloaded a different one that actually had the file in it and it finally rooted my phone. Thanks again for your guys help. Will the root hold through the 905 update?

    Running as admin won't make a difference.

    Double check everything. USB debugging enabled. Motorola USB cable that came with your BIONIC. Main USB port on your computer, not a USB hub. USB2.0 port, not a USB 3.0 port. Latest USB drivers (see my signature in the first reply that i made in this thread).

    If it still does not work, with every thing connected, open a cmd window, changer to the directory where you have motofail extracted, and type
    Code (Text):
    1. adb devices
    and see if it sees your phone. If you see multiple devices, then enter
    Code (Text):
    1. adb kill-server
    and then run the batch file.

    If you do not see any devices, check every thing above again.

    Since motofail uses the same persistence method as Razr's Edge, it should retain no matter what.

    just in case it does not, keep that file hand lol.
