    It works. Phone runs much smoother after I froze about 45 things...

    is this JUST root or does this allow the installation of recoveries as well?

    My Motorola Droid 3 has a micro HDMI port. Is Motorola doing away with that?

    As far as I know.. none of the 3 new droids, Mini, Ultra or MAXX have a physical port.. it is wireless..

    since there is no recovery, any idea how I can make a full backup before I debloat? I used to use clockwork mod.

    also, (and this may seem like a stupid question) do I have to leave those files for rooting on my ext. SD card? I know it barely takes up any room, but I don't like having unused files lingering around.

    not possible at the moment, making a backup required access to the recovery and can't be done at the moment.... im starting to regret accepting the OTA because im itching for some CM right now lol

    correct, also none of them have SD card slots either. the MAXX does come with 32 gigs standard though and verizon will also be picking up the moto X when it releases sometime in the next few months.

    well, I just used the free version of Titanium Root to make a back up. I am not sure if it copied the system files? I will just freeze my apps for now.

    :(

    I doesn't backup everything just some system stuff and apps. You have to have the paid version to b able to freeze. Look for the debloat list to freeze right apps. Don't forget to freeze the updater to block future updates

    It seems like rooting VRUAME7 is much easier than rooting VRUAMDK.

    rooting yes so far (as far as end user perspective ((aka its wrapped up nicely))) but a recovery unlock so far is proving challenging

    Yeah, I was just referring to the process of rooting. Granted, the MDK version does more than just root (allow new ROMs, etc.), so it makes sense that there's more involved. I wonder what "good" updates ME7 makes to MDK in terms of bug fixes, feature enhancements, etc.

    Mines telling me that access is denied when I try to run the two scripts... did I not format something properly on the SD card or something?

    Any idea where to get my hands on a quick "How-to"? Searching throw a ton of results but nothing specific from what I can tell...

    Also, I'm assuming that formatting the card within the phone doesn't format in exFAT since the prompts don't work?

    For exFAT you have to format the card in your PC, which of course means that you'd need some sort of an adapter to fit the card in the PC.

    Why can't it be formatted via a USB cable while the microSD card is inside the phone?

    confirmed... only cards OVER 32Gb will be formated as EXfat while everything is formated as fat32 (unless you format in phone of course.
