We already knew this was going down but you can now root your DROID Bionic using the simple one-click-root method found to work on a slew of other recent Motorola phones such as the Droid X2 and the Droid 3 all running on Moto’s latest Gingerbread builds. Last week we saw the Bionic was already rooted, but today we have instructions and the download for you.
This literally took me about 1 minute to download the latest Motorola drivers and another minute or two to actually root and it was a done deal. Now I’m free to fly around and do titanium backup’s and all that good stuff. Obviously this doesn’t fix or do anything with the bootloader “situation” but we’ll take root any day for now.

-Install Motorola drivers – [click here]
-Download the MotorolaOneClickRoot
-Plug phone into PC and select “Charge Only”
-Enable USB debugging
-Navigate to MotorolaOneClickRoot folder and run MotorolaOneClickRoot.exe.
-Just follow the instructions in the command window.
-Your phone will reboot along the way, unlock it when it finishes — ROOTED!
Quick, easy and simple right? We have heard a few rumors that the hole that was found to achieve root on most of these recent Motorola phones has been figured out my Motorola and they will be patching this shortly. While we can’t confirm this if you wish to stay rooted I’d be cautious of any OTA updates for now and make sure to check with popular DROID developers (or just watch Android Community) for more details on future updates.
Root that new Bionic and enjoy the freedom at hand.
