DISCLAIMER: I am not liable or responsible for any damage to your phone. This is solely the users decision to "root" their phone.

(Update) Dan has posted a Linux/OSX version too!

This is the same exploit that was held for a bounty for the Droid 4 the other day.
It was finally released and it should work on all Moto devices.

Download it here: http://vulnfactory.o...nty-experiment/

The instuctions are easy to follow.

1. Make sure your device is in USB debugging mode
2. Plug your phone into your PC
3. Make sure your device is in charge only mode
4. Ensure you have the latest Motorola drivers installed (available here: http://bit.ly/wXY45j )
5. Extract the entire zip file
6. Double click "run.bat"
7. Enjoy root!

Not sure if it works on the X, but worst case, it doesn't and you can use Pete's one click method (google it). Download the newest drivers anyway and then try this one. If it works, report back here and I'll get a list of working phones going.

@johnjutrasii - hey, unless you've gotten permission from dan to hotlink files stored on his webserver, you might wanna change the OP to at least direct to his blog post about the vuln and charity stuff instead of pointing directly at the files themselves.
Thanks for the heads up. I was posting this from my phone and didn't realize I used the wrong link.

(edit) OP fixed

CMW does work. Search for razr bootstrapper or razr safestrap.

They both offer different options, so read up and decide what is best for you.

Just curious about the unroot process you would recommend. Do you put any symlinks in or do anything that a unroot app from the play pen wouldnt fix? do you suggest flashing a stock file through rsd?
