DROID3 1-Click Easy Root Already Released

Struggling with the manual rooting method for the DROID3 that was released this morning?  No need to stress.  A 1-click easy root has already been created by Framework43 and psouza4 for those of you with Windows machines.  The instructions couldn’t be more simple.  Oh, and our homie @P3Droid is pretty sure that this rooting method will work for all Moto phones running Gingerbread.  Hello, Bionic?  Unless of course, Moto finds a way to patch it before we see that phone on September 8.

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.

Via:  RootzWiki (be sure to check here for the latest version)

Cheers Travis!

    Thanks a lot, man! Works fine on my Atrix with se_flash_olympus

  • Anonymous

    Thanks a million Kellex for this “Droid 3 1-Click Easy Root ..” post which rooted my Motorola Atrix (Build no. OLYEM_U4_4.3.5) so promptly. Prior to this, I have spent the last 8 hours (crazy, I know!) unsuccessfully attempting the root using various versions of Ginger Break, SuperOneClick and even command line code provided at the XDA developer websites.

    Cheers again and keep up the good work 🙂

  • Omer Bonfil

    Thank You!!!

  • Mmaherw

    i rooted my droid x but i need a password, what up?

  • Mark Slomski

    Thank you DL developers and community once again for saving my a** I have a droid x and figured i’d take a short cut with the new update and not sbf to froyo and then back to GB so I just flashed the newest OTA and lost root. Thought I was done until I stumbled upon this forum cuz my wife is getting the D3 next week so I snooped and found it worked for my droid x as well. thanks again this site is f***ing awsome.

  • how can I unroot from this procedure?
    I need use mobile banking application
    However, I was failure unroot at this programs

  • blitz

    Has anyone tried this on the original D2? I’m seeing mixed results on the X.

      this info is on this page http://droidmodderx.com/one-click-root-for-any-motorola-device-running-gb/ 

      One Click Root for Linux and OSX – Droid 3

      This has only been tested on Linux thus far, but I’m told it should be good to go on OSX(also confirmed on Ubuntu 11.04)

      Credit to zdooder for preparing this Linux version of One Click Root for Droid 3

      Instructions should be the same as the Windows version above.

      1. Download and Unzip ‘Droid3_Easy_Root_v7d’ – LINK http://www.mediafire.com/?2ugcdue4cw7dtc5
      2. On your phone: Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging(check box)
      3. Plug phone into computer and select “Charge Only” mode
      4. Navigate to wherever you extracted it and run the file ‘run_to_root_your_droid3.sh’
      5. Now just follow the instructions in the command window and unlock the phone after each reboot.

      Your phone will now have root thanks to the following:
      zdooder – writing this Linux/OSX One Click Root
      djrbliss – finding the exploit
      krazykrivda – gathering developers and making shit happen
      As per P3Droid, this method should work on the following devices, as tested:
      Droid 3, Droid X, Droid X2, Cliq and Cliq 2 

  • Maddog

    thanks i now have a Droid 3 that is Rooted

  • Matthew Harmon

    Has anyone experienced their phone dropping wi-fi after rooting?  I can’t keep my phone connected to wi-fi.  It will connect momentarily, but then drop.

  • Drnick124

    Worked on X2 with the most recent everything. Took less than 5 min.

  • Esmccarty09

    i still can’t get it. still saying waiting for phone to be connected this program is shit. i have the right drivers installed and am doing what it says and have rooted my D1 back in the old days when it was a challenge and never had this much trouble. can someone please help me out

    • Peter Souza

      Helps to know which version of the script (or .EXE) you have, what OS you’re using, and what phone you’re trying to root with this, you know.  You’ll find much faster and better help in the rootzwiki.com forums or IRC.

      • Esmccarty09

        Vz 7 with droid 3 using windows

  • JTtwo

    I was unable to gain root.  After installing the drivers, and changing the usb debugging to charge only, run the app, and get the error:  “error: more than one device and emulator.”

    I get this error through all the script, then it says i have root, but i do not, as titanium backup pro does not work. Re-booted, still no root.  Is the micro SD card supposed to be removed?

    • JTtwo

      Sorry Droid X OTA GB 4.5.602

      • JTtwo

        So I was using a USB 3.0 port.  Went to a USB 2.0 port, and worked fine.  Try a different USB port on your PC.

        • JTtwo

          Finally finished.  There were a few items on mine.  First usb 3.0 didn’t work.  Second, had to change my  usb connection to “PC Mode”.  Third.  This is a know issue!:  Previous rooted DX’s that ota’d to Gingerbread 2.3.4, need to remove superuser as trying to reinstall it causes failure.   Follow instructions: http://rootzwiki.com/showthread.php?t=3714&page=15&p=77624&viewfull=1#post77624.

          Worked for me.

  • Worked for me on my droid x running GB……. Thank God too b/c I was dying without Root Access. Thanks Framework43, psouza4 [email protected]

  • Works on D2G running leaked Gingerbread!  Goodbye to that hefty bloat!

  • Anonymous

    running it on my stock DX2 now… and done, no go. process runs through without issue but apps still can’t grab root access. 

  • YB

    Just did it on my DroidX with OTA Gingerbread 4.5.602.
    3 minutes and all done.

    Thx much

      The original Droid X? Because I would be very interested in that. The one click root for Droid 3 works on the original Droid X?

      • Tstevensonrocks

        Yup, worked perfectly for me as well on the Droid X. Thanks!

        • dotman

          i’m new to this and it says to load the motorolla drivers, buti’m on xp and the link leads to 64 bit version. can i do this on 32 bit with xp pro? If so, what drivers would I load?

  • Worked great on my DroidX GB 4.5.602

  • I have just succesfully rooted the Droid 3 using Windows 7 64-bit…How do I remove the bloatware?  With Titanium Root?

    • RW-1

      I don’t know the file structure of that unit, having an OG, but grab root explorer and pay for it from the market, then navigage to system/apps, then remove the bloat.
      (you might want to copy them over to a computer to hold on to them in case you remove something needed …)

  • So please forgive me but other than Titanium, and screenshots (what happend to “Shoot me”??) what good is this. I can’t find anything that will allow me to take my D3 above 1Ghz – perhpas I am not looking int he right places. also ROMS and the like are still a no right? b/c of bootloader?  

    • Peter Souza

      Lots!  Chainfire 3D (play Tegra games on non-Tegra devices), Root Explorer, SetCPU (underclocking only for now until we have new kernels), Titanium like you mentioned — not just for backing up user data but also removing bloatware which is the biggest deal so far, AdFree to block advertisements, better Tasker control, CacheMate, sky’s the limit…

      ROMs — give it a week or two before we start seeing them.  We’ll probably find a second init method to use until the bootloader is unlocked.

    • Tom Crews

      Having root is how those things begin (new recovery, roms, etc..) so this is just a stepping stone towards those.

      Overclocking depends on the kernel, not just having root.  Since root just happened, give it some time before recoveries, bootstraps, roms, etc.. start coming out.

    • bloatware can be removed…you cannot overclock since the bootloader is locked…custom ROMs can be put on once ClockWork comes out for Droid 3 and ROMs need to be ported over to Droid 3, we just cannot do anything with Kernal since bootloader is locked.

  • Matthew Harmon

    I have a stock DX with Gingerbread .602

    When I run the script, I get the message ‘adb’ is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file, press any key to continue.

    Steps I followed:

    Downloaded drivers
    Downloaded ZIP
    Connect phone with debug check in charge only mode
    Opened zip and double clicked on the click to root your DROID3.bat file

    Result
    Script runs
    Receive message from above

    Have Windows 7 64bit

    • Floyd

      Did you have your memory card in the phone?

  • Ashton

    Do we download the drivers and droid 3 easy root script v7 to the computer or the phone? Sorry I prefer exact steps for minimal mistake

    • Matthew Harmon

      Yes, download to your PC.  I tried running directly from the zip and it did not work, once I created a folder on my pc and ran the .bat file, I was granted Super User access on my stock DX with 2.3 .602 13p.

      Nice work.

  • Anonymous

    Just did it on my DROID 3. Was very easy.  Froze all the bloat that I know is safe to free with Titanium Backup. Lets see if I see any change.

    Can’t wait for a custom recovery and hopefully finally get rid of Blur and the bloat all together.

  • Has anyone rooted their D3 using a Mac? I cant find it does someone have the link? Thanks in advance

  • worked on dx with stock gingerbread

  • Anyone try this on the Droid 1 yet? I wanna know if it works so I can root my moms phone and get her the awesome apps my DX has.

  • Worked great on a DROID2 Global running the Leaked GB build… Win7 x64….

  • My wife and i ended up being now thrilled Michael could conclude his research using the precious recommendations he acquired when using the web pages. It is now and again perplexing to simply choose to be making a gift of ideas that many many others might have been trying to sell. And we also do know we need the website owner to thank for this. All of the explanations you’ve made, the straightforward blog navigation, the relationships you help foster – it’s got most extraordinary, and it is making our son in addition to our family believe that this idea is pleasurable, which is certainly rather indispensable. Thanks for all the pieces!

  • Chris

    When I try this, it gets to rebooting my phone, except then my phone boots into bootloader and doesnt move. What am I doing wrong?

    • Sounds like it is not in charge only mode from what I have seen.

      • Chris

        Just checked, it is. Ive tried several times, each time it loads bootloader. Any other suggestions or tips?

  • Chad

    Worked perfectly on my D3!!

    Not working on my DX stock gingerbread.  Script ran fine, and I can get root via adb now.  But none of my root-requiring apps on my phone are able to (root explorer, better term emu).

    if i type “su” in better term emulator I just get “Permission denied.”

    • Floyd

      Would that be caused because a binary update is needed in the SU app? I tried to do a manual as it suggested and it failed, placed it on my memory card and needs to be flashed it said.

      • Peter Souza

        This root method cannot be used with an SD card.  Follow the directions exactly.

        • Floyd

          I have a DX. I followed the above directions exactly. I ran it all with my memory card in the phone. What should I do from here? I DL’ed Root Checker from the Market and i dont have something right. Drocap will work but nothing else. Thanks for any help you can give me.

  • MrToTo83

    Now lets see if someone can fix the Data Roaming issue before Moto…..

  • Thanks a lot for providing individuals with a very remarkable opportunity to read from this site. It’s always so nice and also packed with fun for me and my office mates to search the blog at minimum thrice in one week to read through the new tips you have. And lastly, I’m also usually contented considering the good tips and hints you give. Selected 3 tips in this article are really the best I’ve had.

  • Mortymouse

    CONFIRMED on a DROIDX .602 13p full stock.

    • Floyd

      Did you pull your memory card first? Said I had Root
      after running the script but Titanium says I don’t. Someone said not to have a memory card in??

  • Anonymous

    1click is a sure way to brick any device.!!!

    • Peter Souza

      And obviously you have no idea what you’re talking about.

      The one-click method is just a batch file (or bash script for linux/mac) that runs ADB commands — it creates a symlink, changes some settings in local.prop, and adb push’s su and superuser (among some reboots and chmod).  Nothing about that can brick a phone.

      Go take a look at the script for more details and don’t go trolling to cause a panic.

      • Triplec76

        Not working on X2 OTA GB Update. Advice?

        • Peter Souza

          Post in the thread and someone will be able to help you — make sure you tell them what OS you’re using and what you mean by ‘not working’ (error? can’t run the script?  script runs but no root?  etc.)

          • Triplec76

            Sorry. Script says it completed successfully, but root was not obtained. I ended up doing it the manual way and that was successful. Win7 32bit. I downloaded the latest drivers and tried to find the latest build of the one-click. It never worked. But I have root using the manual method anyway.

          • Eric Hahn

            When i followed this method on my x2 it took a reboot and then some waiting.  Thought it did not work but then i unlocked my screen and all the su permission pop ups were there but it had been like 3 min since i ran the apps.  Caught them up and now they pop up right away.  

  • Ry4meck

    anyone using a mac successful with this? if so how!!

    • Peter Souza

      Click the link to RootzWiki and download script v7c for Macs.

      • Floyd

        I can’t get Titanium to get Root? Says not there, Drocap2 is working and I updated the SU app.. Any guesses? AdBlock seemed to update OK also.

        • Peter Souza

          Try rebooting or re-installing Titanium Backup?  Not sure — I can’t support individual apps, just helping to bring this root to everyone.  🙂

  • Anonymous

    sweeet, it was so easy…..what do you need to back-up?

  • Esmccarty09

    okay i have the drivers downloaded and they are the right ones but still says waiting for phone to be connected… it’s getting old

    • Daniel Maginnis

      i had to put my phone in to PC mode, not charge only mode. then the script will run. as soon as your computer and phone starts doing something, do not touch it. then the script will tell you youre good to go.

      • Floyd

        Is Titanium working for you?

        • Peter Souza

          Working fine here, Titanium Backup and Pro key.

    with this root you can overclock, teather ect? Install stock gingerbread?

    b/c the bootloader is locked it can’t it can’t use clockwork recovery?

  • R_peacock10

    does anyone know if they have started giving droid 3 as replacements for the droid 2?

  • Ive rebooted my DX1, five times already and it doesnt lose root at all…not sure whats going on with the D3 owners :-(. 

  • Anonymous

    Yes! Just Rooted! Such a snap! I missed my Drocap2, Titanium Backup, etc etc.

  • thanks for figuring this out, now my D3 is a greater beast than it already was 🙂

    • Guest

      It was a beast before root, i can imagine now but i do not feel root is necessary anymore.

  • Daniel Maginnis

    i know it says it in step 6, but i’ll make it clear since no one has asked… you have to run this script every time you reboot the phone? kind of a annoying since my phone reboots itself about once a week. 

  • Daniel Maginnis

    i know it says it in step 6, but i’ll make it clear since no one has asked… you have to run this script every time you reboot the phone? kind of a annoying since my phone reboots itself about once a week. 

    • So if I’m in the middle of the Amazon jungle and my D3 reboots I need a laptop to run the script again or else no phone?

      Not too excited about root just yet it seems.

      • Peter Souza

        See my reply above — this is a one-time permanent root.

        • Gotcha!  Thanks for that, went ahead and took the plunge

          • Peter Souza

            Enjoy it… I’ve had my Droid 3 since July 8th, the day after it was released.. and have been itching for this forever.  Big props again to bliss (Dan Rosenberg of Brown University) for this exploit.

          • Floyd

            How long did it take to complete the process?

          • Peter Souza

            < 5 minutes most of which is waiting for the Droid 3 to complete two reboots.

      • Tom Crews

        No, once done it’s done.  It’s multiple reboots when doing it the first and only time.

    • Peter Souza

      No, they said ‘unlock’ (and meant unlock, not unroot).  And you don’t even have to unlock… version 7 of the script doesn’t even pause for the phone to be unlocked it just *does* it.

      This root method survives a reboot, battery pull, etc.

      • Daniel Maginnis

        awesome. i see exactly what you mean, now that i’ve done it. i know that the script has been updated multiple times in just one day. thanks for your reply. i just rebooted my phone and can confirm that the root does stay. already got rid of all the moto and VZW crap. freed up 50+MB of running RAM.

        • Guest

          You could of done that using the task manager that the new moto devices have.

          • Peter Souza

            No you can’t.  The built-in task killer that’s included with the DROID 3 can be configured to end running tasks 2 minutes after the screen is turned off.  That means these processes can still do whatever they feel like when the screen is on (if even the task killer works as advertised).

        • Corey williams

          So I’m new to the whole Android system and rooting. I used the new updated 1 click root and was successful on my Droid 3. What should I do next? I’m not able to remove any of the crap that’s on it. I do know it worked because I have the superuser ninja app.

  • 11knives

    Droid X with latest Gingerbread OTA… Now have ROOT ACCESS!

  • Esmccarty09

    is there a way to unroot as well?

    • Peter Souza

      Just delete su, uninstall superuser, and reboot.  There’s a few solutions in the market that’ll do it for you.

      • guest

        where exactly do you delete su from when trying to unroot? my home button won’t take me back home when im on another homescreen after rooting

  • well works on d3 saweeeeet i got an ogd an a d3 rooted 

    • Guest

      sweet ! tell me out of the box, which one its better droid1 or droid3?

  • batch file shows no issue but Su not working in emulator, had root on froyo via z4root did ota to gb and lost this doesnt seem to get my root back….on dx btw

    • Make sure to download the drivers, install them, and follow instructions, it works I have a DX1. Also you can make sure you have root by downloading a program like cache cleaner legacy and run it, it needs root so if it does run….you have root 🙂

      • did all the above.. removed drivers re installed and still wont take it.

        • for that matter i have tried about 10x and no luck.. so to recap.. dx had root on froyo from z4root.. lost going to gb on ota, su and such still installed when ota was recieved now wont take this root regardless of driver uninstall reinstall etc. 

  • Well I can confirm it works with the original Droid X 🙂

  • wha bout clockwork recovery?

    • It will work. You have to buy it.

      • Peter Souza

        No access to the bootloader nor second init (yet), so no custom recoveries, no nandroidn or anything you’d really want Clockwork Recovery for.

  • I have an original Droid X, due to the locked bootloader, will this work? Im used to rooting things with rsd lite and dont know how to at all with adb….if anyone gets this to work on the DX1 let us know 🙂

    • Has nothing to do with bootloader. Yes, it will work. Follow instructions.

  • A Nguyen584

    So it won’t be rooted after i reboot the phone correct? Am I reading that right?

  • Ges

    Goodbye bloatware 😀

  •  Hello, Bionic?  Unless of course, Moto finds a way to patch it before we see that phone on September 8.

    Well it wasn’t going to patch it until it read it here!

  • Works on all Droid devices running Gingerbread. NICE!

    • Guest

      Very nice ! many people still complaing about Moto lol. They are releasing the GB super fast to their phones as well 🙂

  • I hope this works on the Bionic

    • Guest

      It will but i will not root. I do not feel it is necessary 🙂

  • Telephoneteck

    Bionic root °Δ°

  • Telephoneteck

    These guys are good!

  • Now I’m waiting for the post saying the Bionic has been delayed again. LOL

  • Peter Souza

    I just released v7 of this script… fixes a chown issue, works even if .bak files pre-existed, and uses adb kill-server instead of taskkill (forgoes a “protocol error” some people are getting).

      You SIR are the MAN…… Will this do Bionic? Maybe???

      • GOGO

        Probably. 
        Same processor, same OS, I don’t see why it wouldn’t.

    Anyone else’s 3G going in & out?

    • Pnoymagnetix

      mine has, often.  I’m on my second D3 too!

  • Pnoymagnetix

    so what does this do to my D3?  sorry im not a tech head at all

    • It allows you root access to your phone. You can change/delete system files and apps. Similar to jailbreaking an iPhone.

  • I want to express my love for your kind-heartedness giving support to persons that require assistance with the content. Your special commitment to getting the message all over turned out to be certainly useful and has in every case empowered women just like me to get to their desired goals. Your entire interesting recommendations implies this much a person like me and extremely more to my fellow workers. Many thanks; from all of us.

  • does it matter if you have a pc or a mac?

    • Anonymous

      Looks like the have a method for both PC and mac

  • J Dub

    Sooo…how long till Clockwork and how long for the boot loader unlock? Still looking for the OG replacement. You know the phone that, like the OG, is like the highest spec’d, best looking, very well made phone on the market. 

    • Since there is no sbf available yet most devs will wait for that.  Don’t want a bunch of bricks out there.

  • Stelv81

    Congratulations guys. Quick..remove blur as fast as you can. AOSP it up!

  • Bob2kim

    Just rooted my DX..yes!

    • is it an original DX with OTA Gingerbread?

      • Anonymous

        The root is for stok gingerbread so im guessing its the ota

    • Bob2kim

      It’s an original stock Gingerbread.  I have been waiting for a 1click solution so I never rooted using the rooted ROMs.  I wanted to be as much stock as possible but rooted.

    • Jake

      But you can’t wifi tether?

  • Very good news…as root access is a necessary for me to buy the Bionic.

      I just paíd $20.87 for an íPad 2.64GB and my boyfriend loves his Panasoníc Lumíx GF 1 Cámera that we got for $38.79 there arriving tomorrow by UP S.I will never pay such expensive retail príces in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LCD T V to my boss for $657 which only cost me $62.81 to buy.

    Well at least there’s some good news for a FEW Verizon customers today. Still rocking the OG Droid. 

    Please post in here if the D3 ends up being amazing with the root! thanks in advance!

  • my00si

    Stupid question – Navigate to ‘Droid 3 easy root’ folder and run ‘Click to root your Droid 3.bat’ – you run this from your desktop with the phone plugged in by USB correct?

    • Craigg

      yes.

    • Dick Wiggles

      Yes … plugged in via USB with debugging enabled

  • Carl Weathers

    So much for the September 8th Bionic release date we had hoped for.  It seems unlikely Motorola can patch this hole and get it certified by Verizon’s labs before the cut-off date for shipping these phones out.  Thanks hackers. 😛

  • Craigg

    I just performed the one click and it worked perfectly.

  • Carl Weathers

    Well, so much for the hoped-for September 8th release date of the Bionic.  This should push back the release at least another 2-4 weeks while a new patch is certified to fix this hole.  There’s no way Verizon will launch a new 4G LTE phone with a root hole in it.

    Thats one thing I liked about Motorola phones….. One click root!

    wireless tether here we come

    • Craigg

      The radio exploit is better than using the market tethering applications. You can find details on the XDA development forum.

  • Also, does this come with superuser?  Or do we need to dl that from the market?

  • So for this don’t need any ADB or any crazy business installed???

  • Oh man OH MAN OH MAN!!!!!  Greatest. Day. Ever!

  • Rory W

    “Oh, and our homie @P3Droid is pretty sure that this rooting method will work for all Moto phones running Gingerbread.”

    So, does this mean my Droid X finally gets 1-click rooting versus having to flash the rooted ROM?

    • Anonymous

      DroidX always had one click root.

      • mrz1125

        not on gingerbread it didnt

      • kkb

        didn’t completely work on my DX either.  Script ran fine and I CAN get root via adb, but not via any apps on the phone itself.

    • Rory W

      Seems to have worked on my DX.

    • Anonymous

      Ooh, let us know how it goes.

      • Anonymous

        X2 is listed as one of the devices it will work on

        • except if you grabbed the script a half hour ago when it was first posted it does not work.  there is a lot of flashy color stuff in there and a few other things that giving me a hard time with the batch file on my system.  I am re-writing it in vbs using send keys to help make it more stable from the original instructions from this morning.  I will be leaving the office soon but once it’s done i will have it on my blog after a party i have to go to.  Sorry people I got commitments tonight and someone will probably beat me to it.  as of right now i am sitting at a root prompt on my X2.

          • Apps Are pushed have a screen shot using drocap from the terminal emulator coming soon.  Here is my recommendation

            http://goo.gl/K3ffx

            That is a text file.  Download the file above and extract it and then start a command prompt.

            MAKE SURE YOU START FROM THAT DIR.  I typed all of those by hand and I have root.  Screen Shots soon.

          • Ok screens giving error will test and report back when i have time.

          • Bensdroidhelp

            Extract all the files to your desktop and run it from there, thats what i had to do

          • Using my txt file though I can fire up terminal emulator, type su, get root (#) access and type reboot and the phone does exactly that.  Thinking its the tegra and the screen shot apps that are busted.  Someone please try and let me know i will check back when i can.  Sorry about the rambling but it was the easiest way to keep my thoughts organized until i get this in my blog

          • which [signed] version of SU?

      • Taking longer the original script would not work
        Had to manually get into the shell and type it out
        Working on my script now

        • Doing it by hand the adb commands are not taking properly but i can get through most of the steps will keep you posted shouldn’t be long now.

          • Stephen D

            I heard that it works, but the apps couldn’t get root. I’m sure that would be an easy fix though.
