DROID 3 1-Click Easy Root Released (Instructions)

| August 25, 2011 | Reply

We reported that the DROID 3 was rooted thanks to security consultant, Dan Rosenberg, earlier today. The initial instructions were for a manual process via adb, which newer users might not really have a handle on. As we thought, it didn’t take long for someone to bust out an easy 1-click root method – which apparently works on pretty much any Motorola Android device, due to the exploit being a Moto vulnerability.

Here you go, DROID 3 owners, root away!:

Instructions:

1. Make sure you have Motorola drivers installed - [Download Drivers]
2. Download and unzip ‘Droid 3 easy root script v5′ - [Download 1-Click]
3. On your phone:  Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging(check box)
4. Plug phone into computer and select “Charge Only” mode
5. Navigate to ‘Droid 3 easy root’ folder and run ‘Click to root your Droid 3.bat’
6. Now just follow the instructions in the command window and unlock the phone after each reboot.
