Dan usually releases them as a zip file with all the necessary files to run the exploit as a batch file. Others may eventually incorporate it into their utilities. Obviously giving Dan credit for the exploit when doing so! :)

Literally last night I was thinking that we might never get root on JB. Of course that didn't stop me from religiously checking this site after work today. I'm so happy to be wrong.

Thanks, Dan!! Donation coming your way...just gotta warm up the laptop and root this thing first. LOL.

I don't have a RAZR, but I just want to thank you for all that you have done with getting us the ability to do the things that we can. Without root on a locked boot loader, all we have are fancy web browsing, text messaging glorified phones!

Thank you for your past contributions as well as your present one!

Yes, and you'll need to download ROMs that are JB base. NOT ICS.

This guy really is the man. He has been providing root for moto phones for years now.

Anybody that is able to should click that donate link and show your appreciation. Let's face it, how much fun is a phone without root?

I'm hardly scraping by so I'm unable to donate at this time but he will be getting something from me as soon as I'm able. Just wanted to encourage some support for the guy who pretty much makes this all possible.
