For those of you on System version 5.5.893 or older, this is the new root method for your Droid Bionic. If you have an earlier version, you can do a system upgrade or follow the older root method here.
For ICS, please see updated ICS root method!
There’s also another root method, you can use that one too.
Step 1. Set your phone as “Charge Only” after connecting USB cable from your phone to the computer.
Step 2. Make sure USB Debugging is checked on under Settings->Applications->Development.
Step 3. Connect your phone to your computer via USB Cable.
Step 4. For Windows, you need to install Motorola drivers.
Download drivers here:
As you can see in above screenshot, you can double-check your drivers are installed correctly by opening up Device Manager in Control Panel. You should get Mot Composite ADB Interface under Android USB Devices or something very similar to that.
Step 5. Next download DroidBionicRootNew.zip and unzip, you should find a folder called files and a file called runme.bat.
Step 6. Simply double-click on runme.bat to start the rooting process.
Step 7. After couple reboots, your Droid Bionic should be rooted. You can verify by updating the SuperUser app and Superuser request should pop up.
