The benefits of this procedure

There is a dual-core 1 GHz Cortex-A9 CPU inside your product. It’ll continue to be there, only that its performance will be heaps better. Apart from a faster processor, your Motorola Droid Bionic receives customization tools. New features will come next, and so will custom ROMs. Battery life is improved and root-only apps are made available. Admin and superuser permission is also offered. The app is powered by this: an SRS Server. Find a Build ID to go with today’s rooting. This indispensable tool should be one you’re used to. You are not limited to a particular version. We, for instance, went with 5.5.1_84_DBN-55.

Particular attention should be given to the fact that a rooting doesn’t always go smoothly. The main problem you will encounter: no more warranty in sight. That is all. And it’s an issue that is easily solved with a tutorial. There are, however, more issues when you upgrade it after the root access is already available. This is a look at what happens: the important data is kept, the system partition isn’t. While the phone’s internal or external SD card aren’t damaged, the root access is revoked.


You will need requirements if you want to have a rooted device. They’re available right here:

  • USB drivers come first, and they must be downloaded on your personal laptop;
  • install these useful tools on the same device next;
  • the Motorola Droid Bionic XT875 needs to have its USB Debugging activated;
  • check the battery level on your smartphone;
  • charge the unit if it needs this;
  • create a couple of regular backups to not lose your handset’s important content;
  • a full NANDroid backup must be done, too;
  • Windows is recommended as an OS for the laptop;
  • disable the security programs running on your phone;
  • turn off the security programs working on the laptop.

Step by step instructions

  1. This is going to be asked of you first: click on this link on your computer. A page will pop up afterwards. It sports a download button. You have to click on it to start the SRSRoot’s download on the laptop. You can do this when the task is completed: install and open the freeware there.
  2. You have Menu, Settings, Unknown Sources and USB Debugging to enable for this step. The third of these options is under the second one. After you’ve tapped these 3, you should only activate the fourth if you failed to perform that for the pre-requisites.
  3. Plugging your handset to the laptop is the way to go now. Performing this connection is doable with a special instrument. This is it: the USB cord that comes with your Motorola XT875. A connection cannot be established if you don’t wait for a while.
  4. The rooting of your smartphone is close to starting. Enable this by finding this option: Root Device (All Methods). It’s on the phone and you have to turn it on.
  5. The second you tap it, the procedure will begin, so wait somewhere around 15 minutes. If this amount of waiting time is not enough and the process takes longer as a result, repeat the steps.
  6. The rooting can very well go smoothly. If that’s the case, you are now approaching the step which ends this tutorial. This is how to finish it all: start the handset all over again.
  7. This is where the following option becomes useful: Reboot System Now. Now that the latter is activated, you should wait again.

This is where you have the chance to see what root access translates into. It should be all of those novelties we talked about not too long ago. These may or may not impress you. Should the tweaks, features, apps and whatnot fall short, the SRSRoot shouldn’t be forgotten. That’s because its unrooting capability comes in very handy.
