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.

Just thought of this. Did u you do the update that came at launch?

Here a stupid question. How do you boot the ultra to recovery? I've been trying power + volume up and it keeps freezing at the boot image.

Oh my gosh guys, I would not get anywhere near excited. It will likely be months if ever before you see something.
