Multi Purpose Utility For Motorola Droid 4 (Windows)
Although it was released barely a week ago, the Motorola Droid 4 already has root. No doubt owners of this shiny new device are eager to start tinkering with it. Luckily for them XDA member mattlgroff has already put together a utility to allow Droid 4 owners to do just that.
It’s based around the exploit discovered by Dan Rosenberg, and as well as root it contains several other functions that you would expect to find in a handy all in one utility.
- Root for ICS
- System pull
- Installation of the Moto Razr bootstrap recovery app
- And a few more useful options thrown in for good measure.
As of writing this, no fastboot files are currently available but the developer does state that the utility will be updated to a full version, including fastboot restore, as and when they become available. So if you are lucky enough to have a brand spanking new Droid 4 to play around with then head on over to the original release thread.
