Universal Gingerbread Root for Motorola Devices

Not long ago, we brought you a nearly universal Gingerbread root method for Samsung phones. It was really cool, as more than two dozen Samsung devices could be rooted and unrooted two simple files. Since rooting is at the core of device development , new root methods—especially universal ones—are always exciting news.

XDA Forum Member rodrigojfuentes has posted a method that should root all Motorola phones currently running Gingerbread. The method requires users to be running Linux, so Windows and Mac users need to load a Linux virtual machine to proceed.

From there, it’s a few commands to obtain and alter the the files, followed by a simple flash. Nothing too difficult, but be sure to read the instructions thoroughly in order to make sure you understand what’s going on.

Full instructions can be found in the original thread.
