Droid 3 Unbrick SBF Released to Ease Your Hacking Fears

I can speak from personal experience that up until now, experimenting with the D3 was always playing with fire because there was no safety net to fall back on incase something went horribly, horribly wrong. Now, thanks to some great guys over at XDA there has been a flashable file released that has been proven to un-brick previously lost D3′s. Oh happy day.

The file can be found here. For instructions on how to flash via RSDLite, head on over to the thread over at XDA.

How to: Root the DROID2, DROIDX2, DROIDX, and DROID3 Running Gingerbread

 

Actually, this method should root just about any Motorola phone running Gingerbread.  So not only will it work on the DROID3, DROID2, DROIDX2, and DROIDX, but it should also work on the DROID Pro and D2 Global when they receive an update – hopefully the DROID Bionic too.  We were inspired to write this for the simple fact that the D2 received Gingerbread last night finally, and within 5 minutes I was rooted.

Thanks to Framework43 and psouza4 for putting this together.  It couldn’t be any simpler than this method right here.   (more…)

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.

DROID3 May Have Been Rooted, We Now Await Photo Evidence (Updated With Instructions)

The DROID3 has reportedly been rooted by XDA member djrbliss, one of the dedicated few that have worked non-stop on the device over the last few weeks.  No photo evidence has been presented just yet, but we may have it within the next hour.

And I should point out that while this is huge news for D3 owners, this might be bigger news for potential DROID Bionic owners.  Since both will likely run similar everything including Android 2.3.4, we can cross our fingers that this root method will work on it as well.

Update:  Here is your photo evidence and instructions…   (more…)
