2. Download the PetesMotorolaRootTools v1.05.zip file and unzip it to your Windows PC.
3. On your phone go into Settings>Applications>Development and check the box for USB Debugging.
4. Plug phone into your computer and select "Charge Only" mode.
5. Navigate to PetesMotorolaRootTools v1.05 folder and run Pete's Motorola Root Tools.exe.
6. Follow the instructions in the command window.
7. Your phone will complete 3 steps, rebooting along the way. When it finishes, you will be rooted.

Instructions to UnRoot:

2. Make sure USB Debugging is still selected.
3. Connect your Bionic to your computer.
4. Run the Pete's Motorola Root Tools.exe.
5. Select UnRoot My Phone at the bottom.

Instructions should be the same as the Windows version above.

3. Plug phone into computer and select "Charge Only" mode

How long did it take for your phones to root? Mine seems to not be going past the "SEARCHING FOR THE PHONE" message that first pops up...

The instructions you used were taken from the same place I got mine. Its the same method only different names for the .zip files. You need a bootstrap to boot into CWM because the bootloader is locked
