How To Root Motorola Bravo Using The ADB Method

I have some great news for you smartphone lovers out there, and especially for Motorola Bravo owners because after you’ve updated your devices to Froyo 2.2, it’s now the time to show you how to root the device so you can take full advantage of it.

Let me tell you that there are many ways to root your device, but we will try to show you the easiest way possible. Okay now, one of the easiest way is the ADB method. The truth is that it ain’t the shortest, but keep in mind that it’s the most efficient and secure method possible, trust us.

Rooting methods also include applications such as Universal Androot, Z4 Root and Super One Click, but the curious thing is that none of these ever managed to break into the Motorola Bravo.

Therefore remains ADB as the only method available, so we will show you step by step how to do it, easily and without any kind of problem.

Also you have to NOT FORGET that the actual rooting process deletes everything on your device, so a back-up it’s absolutely necessary if you don’t want to lose all your contacts, SMS, music, videos, applications, etc.

How to root Motorola Bravo by using the ADB method:

  1. First of all you have to install the ADB app on your personal computer.

  2. Second thing you have to download the Droid2Root.zip, which has to be extracted on your desktop for easy access during the installation process.

  3. While the extraction you will be asked for a password, keep in mind that the password is androidadvices.com.

  4. Now connect your device to the computer via a USB cable and be sure to enable the USB Debugging option from your Motorola.

  5. After the USB Debugging is enabled, open your command prompt and enter the commands bellow:

adb devices (to verify the connection) cd C:|Droid2Root adb push Superuser.apk /sdcard/Superuser.apk adb push su /sdcard/su adb push busybox /sdcard/busybox adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin adb shell cd data/local/tmp chmod 0755 rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin ./rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin

Now you have to have patience and let the process to complete and be prompted to C:Droid2Root directory. Another thing that you should now is that the process may take up to 10-15 minutes to complete, after which the device will be restarting.

When you will be prompted to C:Droid2Root directory you will have to enter another set of commands:

adb devices (to verify the connection) adb shell (you should now have a # prompt) mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system cp /sdcard/Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk cp /sdcard/su /system/bin/su cp /sdcard/busybox /system/bin/busybox chmod 4755 /system/bin/su chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system exit

And the final set of commands which you will have to enter, and that’s it, you have one piece of a rooted Motorola Bravo:

adb shell su mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system rm /system/app/Superuser.apk pm uninstall com.noshufou.android.su
