How to Root Motorola Photon 4G MB855

Motorola Photon 4G MB855 stands a better chance at improvement if it’s rooted. Should you look for a way to get root access delivered, we will introduce you to one of the most appropriate tools. Below is where you’ll discover the way to install it and then root your phone.

You’re just in time for a very important procedure. Its inherent benefits will turn your Motorola Photon 4G into the envy of the town. Before that gets underway, SRSRoot needs to be welcomed. And what better way to do that than installing it on the handset; which saw the light of day 3 years ago. Its codename is Begonia and on it is a dual-core 1 GHz Cortex-A9 CPU. One of the main jobs of this app is that of improving this processor’s overall speed. A freeware, this app introduces new features. It also lets your phone deal with options for better customizing it. The rooting allows the handset’s battery to last for a longer period of time.

The advantages of this method

Root access has root-only apps to also get used to later on. The addition of superuser and admin permission is guaranteed, too. As always with the SRSRoot, your phone’s going to get access to various custom ROMs. The smartphone uses this OS: Android 2.3.4. The rooting app we’re discussing here will keep this version; the tool doesn’t refuse Google’s Android versions, no matter which ones they are. Likewise, this tool is available for many gadgets. This rooting method is powered by an SRS Server. Unrooting a gadget with its help is very much possible. The novelties are offered without security issues. Your phone can enjoy the root access without having to face unwanted programs.Motorola-Photon-4G-MB855

It’s always a good idea to begin a rooting only after you’ve chosen a good Build ID. The SRSRoot won’t stop you from using the one you want. Case in point: we opted for 4.5.1A-1_SUN-154_5 and the rooting was successful.

The warranty which is part of your Motorola Photon MB855 gets revoked if you root this device. That isn’t a problem which cannot be solved. Get the warranty back by looking for a tutorial targeted at your model. Your phone won’t run root access once you install an update firmware on the smartphone. It will also have no system partition. But it will contain its usual internal as / external SD cards and important content.


Now that you know the pros and cons of a rooting, the time has come to reveal our pre-requisites:

  • the USB drivers from this place need to land on your laptop;
  • after the latter features them in their download form, you have to flash them on it;
  • the handset’s USB Debugging needs to be activated;
  • performing a backup or several will prove to be very useful, so have those performed for now;
  • a full NANDroid backup is required, too;
  • be sure to have Windows installed on the laptop;
  • the security programs which are activated on the Motorola MB855 must be disabled;
  • the security programs used by the laptop should be deactivated as well;
  • fully charge the smartphone’s battery.

Step by step instructions

Here are the steps providing your smartphone with all new stuff. Getting access to all of that requires you to follow them.

  1. What your first task looks like is detailed now. Your laptop must feature the SRSRoot. Which is where this page steps in; getting on it will lead you to a download button.
  2. Click on it so that the app’s downloaded on the laptop. Once you are done with this phase, another one must be entered into. Here’s how this one should be tackled: install the app on your laptop.
  3. After that, have it launched on it and enable these options: Menu and Settings. If you take a peek under this last option, Unknown Sources will be revealed. Tap it, then enable USB Debugging if you haven’t.
  4. Afterwards, make sure you plug the handset and laptop to one another. This important part has to be done with the phone’s USB cable.
  5. The rooting has to be initiated next. You will have to activate this to start the procedure: Root Device (All Methods). When the process begins, it will ask you to wait for about 15 minutes.
  6. If the waiting time exceeds that time limit, redo the steps. Once this has solved the problem, restart the Motorola Photon MB855; do it by tapping one particular option: Reboot System Now.
  7. Have patience until the device completes this phase. As soon as it’s done with it, you should tackle the newest benefits arriving from the recently completed rooting!

You are now given the opportunity to enjoy the root access. If it’s not what you first expected, the SRSRoot shouldn’t be forgotten. As previously discussed, this app contains unrooting powers. Use that to revoke the phone from its root access.
