Motorola DROID 4 rooted already, get it now

The Motorola DROID 4 QWERTY keyboard slider has only been available for a few days and was just released late last week. Thanks to those awesome developers it appears that we already have a full root method for the device, as well as a script to make the entire process simple for those looking for a little root access.

We recently reviewed the new DROID 4 from Motorola and our full thoughts and pictures are linked to below. Got Root? Because the method is freely available now and we have all the details. Thanks to Dan Rosenberg and the folks at MyDroidWorld for the below method. Originally Dan was looking for some supporters to donate and get him a Droid 4 but we are hearing he's now donated the entire bounty to the American Red Cross. Support our developers guys!

The exploit is actually quite easy and all it takes is a simple file to be downloaded and a script ran and you'll be rooted in no time. Most likely we'll see a 1-click-root method from XDA shortly but for now this will work just fine. All it takes is a Windows PC. Download the file, unzip, and run and you're good to go. All the details along with the download and donate links are available from the source link below. Enjoy that root access on your shiny new DROID 4.

    “After working endlessly to bring everyone a rooting solution for the
    Droid 4, he thought it would be fair for him to take $200 to buy himself
    a Motorola Droid 4. He would donate the rest of the money for
    charity. It seems this was not acceptable by many Android users out
    there, so he decided to just donate everything to the American Red
    Cross.”
    if the money is donated to Dan, what he do with that is none
    of anybody’s concern. most developers use donations to get new
    device(s), i don’t see any problem with that. Dan even donated the
    remains to charity, what more can anyone ask for? if one doesn’t like
    the proposition, do not donate. it’s that simple. the man deserve his
    reward and if anyone still disagree, don’t use his hard fruit of labor.

    I have this phone, and other than the poor battery life, I really like
    it. The keyboard is fantastic, I don’t mind the screen, the phone is
    zippy and it fits nicely in my average-sized feminine hand. I’d
    recommend the Droid 4.i also found a briefed review about Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx here http://www.motoask.com/motorola-droid-general-discussion-f31/motorola-droid-razr-maxx-review-t3789.html what you guys think which is much better???
