Do you guys or well anyone for the matter think we will ever get root on the Ultra? I had to buy one yesterday (my HD broke and there was alot of hassle) But reason i'm wondering is because I like the Root only apps, I am actually in love with Google and motorola :p the UI is stock!

No word yet. Unfortunately it's one of those things that you don't know until you know. Ya know?? Lol...  :)

 

It looks pretty quiet on the XDA forum too. Of course the phone just came out a few days ago.

This probably a stupid question but has anyone tried to use motochopper? It worked for for the s4 so maybe it will work for this.

I would assume somebody has but it's worth a shot for you guys that have the phone. Worst case is the exploit will fail. Running it with the Utility will not hurt your phone. Who wants to be the guinea pig??

I am hearing that chances are we will not get root...I mean, Dan has retired from doing it, of I'm not mistaken... but I hear from several reputable devs etc in the community that "you will have to love it like it is"...

there's a fxz available. Just fastboot back to normal if it breaks.

Just remember, if it works, you will be the one who found out it works on 4 phones. Forums and sites will praise you for about a day!

Or you can be known on this forum as a chicken :) just kidding! It should just fail if it doesn't work, no hoops to jump through.

I played with the phone again today and really like it. Couldn't get any of the no root wifi tether apps to work, so hoping for root and a working wifi tether

Had to manually select Motorola adb single driver. Either way, didn't work. Said failed. Rebooted, clicked the superuser app and no root

Well thanks for being brave and testing it out for us! I think we need a consolidated root bounty for all 4 new Motorola phones since they are all running the same software.

There's a root method out for att/rogers moto x but you have to be unlocked. id imagine that it would work on the droids as the software and hardware are so close. I'll post the link were I gt home.

Except these are locked. No chance a root for unlocked phones will work on a locked phone.

I'm aware of that. I was more pointing out that development is moving although at the moment the interesting stuff is happening on the unlocked side of the fence.

I didn't realized I had to add "if the ultra were unlocked " kinda thought that would be understood. I was speak purely theoretically

I tried Motochopper and it didn't work.  I also tried the official moto unlock tool  but it said my device ID wasn't available for unlock.

 

The SDK and drivers worked perfectly though...

 

  1. Install the Android SDK. You can download it here.
  2. Install the latest Motorola USB Drivers. Get them here.
