How to Root Motorola Droid Ultra XT1080

Motorola Droid Ultra XT1080 is going to be changed and improved very soon. This is the doing of a particular app. Its various uses are well-known; your smartphone’s about to benefit from all of them. The whole process your handset will go through is a rooting!

You have a device which first appeared last year. Much has changed since then. And there are so many things to improve on your phone. Rooting it is what needs to be done. SRSRoot is what we picked for this impressive procedure. The tool is an app that will make its way on your handset completely for free. The rooting action is closely related to the use of this: a Build ID. Don’t feel too stressed about this. The SRSRoot doesn’t go with only one Build ID; you can always use whichever variant you please. Ours was CNANZHI. After you get Motorola Droid Ultra rooted, you may find yourself wanting to unroot it. The same freeware is more than happy to help with that.

The benefits of this method

Root access is synonymous with a faster dual-core 1.7 GHz Krait CPU. There are various other new stuff, too; such as custom ROMs. The OS, an Android 4.2.2 JB version, cannot be deleted from the phone. The SRSRoot won’t allow that. This popular rooting tool is made to support every Android variant. You will soon see your smartphone full of these: root-only apps. Having fun with new features is another advantage.Motorola-Droid-Ultra-XT1080

Battery tweaks are going to be featured, too; same with admin / superuser permission. The root access is also synanymous with customization options. The SRSRoot can be used by owners of different gadgets. Using it guarantees the lack of security problems. It also lets you enjoy a bloatware-free product.

All of the above sounds good. Let’s see what your rooted device does when it’s faced with an upgrade. The first damage is done to its system partition. After the latter is deleted, the root access is the next to be damaged. The update firmware you’ll use leaves a device’s data in peace. It also leaves the gadget’s internal and external SD cards free from damage.

A rooting is very much tied to the loss of your phone’s warranty. Losing it isn’t something to worry about. There is a way to return it: via a guide that’s specialized on your handset.


Requirements play such a huge role in a rooting. They are displayed now:

  • access this page on your laptop;
  • if you’re on it as indicated, look for some USB drivers (they are fully compatible with your Motorola Droid Ultra XT1080);
  • download these and then install them on the laptop;
  • your smartphone’s USB Debugging has o be activated;
  • then provide backups to keep the handset’s content from being damaged;
  • a full NANDroid backup is also important, so make sure one is created;
  • your laptop shouldn’t use an OS which isn’t the Windows version;
  • no security program should be activated on your laptop;
  • the security programs offered by your phone must be turned off, as well;
  • the Motorola Droid Ultra XT1080 has to feature a fully charged battery.

Step by step instructions

You can now leave these requirements behind you for the next few paragraphs. That’s because the rooting can start at last.

  1. With this first essential action: get the SRSRoot downloaded on your laptop. To allow this to happen, launch, first, this page on your laptop. On it is a certain useful download button.
  2. What to do with it? Click on it. At the end of the download you can do the following: install the app. Open it after you’re done, then simply tap Menu.
  3. Settings must be enabled, too, as does this option: Unknown Sources. Discover the latter under the handset’s Settings option you just activated.
  4. It’s now time to also tap USB Debugging. This action can be ignored by those who’ve already enabled the option above. The USB cord arriving with your XT1080  has a role to play.
  5. Its use is this: the cable can connect the handset to the laptop. Once you’ve established, with it, a connection, feel free to begin the device’s rooting.
  6. Enter the smartphone in this mode by tapping Root Device (All Methods). Such an important procedure needs 10-15 minutes.
  7. When completed, you have to start your phone again; here’s what you need to tap to do that: Reboot System Now. In case the rooting doesn’t go to well, you can always return to the previous steps and redo them.

Immediately after the Motorola Droid Ultra ends its rooting phase and restarts, you will have a greatly improved device. Play with all those novelties first.

Then, should you find them a waste of time, let your phone be revoked of its root access. If this proves to be difficult, or the rooting dealt with problems, use our comment section. It’s right under this tutorial.
