Root Verizon’s Motorola Droid Bionic
The Droid Bionic from Motorola and Verizon was one of the most anticipated phones of 2011. The Bionic is the first phone to hit Verizon’s network to sport a dual-core processor and support Verizon’s blazing fast 4G LTE network.The handset was announced in CES, and was supposed to be released sometime in early Q2, but was then pushed back to late Q3 for some unknown reason.
Here are the steps to root your Motorola Droid Bionic -:
First of all, Bionic owners need to download and install the required Motorola Drivers. They can download the 32-bit version from here, and the 64-bit version from here. Also, download Pete’s Motorola Root Tools from here.
After installing the drivers, unzip the contents of the Pete’s Motorola Root Tools in a new folder on your desktop.
Enable USB Debugging on your Bionic, by going to Settings->Applications->Development, and selecting the USB Debugging option.
When you connect your phone to your PC, select the ‘Charge Only’ option on the phone.
Run the Pete’s Motorola Root Tools exe file inside the folder, which you unzipped on Step 2 on your desktop.
If you followed all the above steps correctly, the tool will detect your handset and automatically proceed to root it.
Your phone will reboot thrice, before you finally get root access on your Bionic.
Bionic users should keep in mind that getting root access does not mean that they have a custom recovery installed.
