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!

Thanks to pulser_g2 for this article!
