Motorola Atrix 4G Rooted

XDA member designgears has been working with Getaphixx, and have managed to root the new/upcoming Motorola Atrix.

Rooting an Android handset is the first step on the ladder towards freedom from a carrier’s software and restrictions. Whilst it has not been established if the boot loader is signed yet, gaining root is a definite step in the right direction. A dump of the software is already available from designgears.

Well, I thought this was going to be hard.

Thanks to Getaphixx, the guy who dumped the phone, for testing this out for me! He has the worlds first rooted Atrix, CONGRATS!

Check out the thread by designgears for more information about rooting, or visit the Atrix 4G Android Development forum to take a look at what’s going on.

Thanks to pulser_g2 for this article!

Optimize Battery Life with This Useful App

Battery life is an important aspect of your smartphone, especially if you use it for more than just calls on the go. Since you're on XDA, you probably do and want to get the most out of your battery.
