Motorola DROID BIONIC already rooted

Motorola DROID BIONIC already rooted
There still are 6 days left until the Motorola DROID BIONIC is finally launched by Verizon, but already the long-awaited smartphone has been rooted. The crew at MyDroidLife convinced a source to do the deed, using the same technique that rooted the Motorola DROID 3 and works on just about all Motorola handsets. Just remember that you can end up bricking your device and even lose your warranty by rooting your phone.

Obviously, most of the public has yet to even hold a Motorola DROID BIONIC in their hand, much less have an opportunity to root the phone. A television commercial that ran yesterday confirms the September 8th launch date for the model, as we reported. For those who would like to see the directions on how to root the phone once you have it, or if you want to root your Motorola DROID 3, the step-by-step instructions of the method created by Dan Rosenberg at can be yours by clicking on the following link.

Hey great news for anyone who gets this phone. Personally I think the Samsung Prime looks like a better choice, but to each is own!

Isn't the Nexus Prime months away?

More like weeks. October's the latest guess. I'm sure more will leak out about it in the next few weeks. Now that it's been rooted, we just need the bootloader unlocked.

There has been no confirmation if this phone is a Global phone. Is it?

So this singlehandedly destroys Miz's bulls**t argument from a while back that a locked bootloader makes it really hard to impossible to root an Android phone.

Android Central posted a dummy phone compared to the TBolt, Droid Charge, and Revolution. The Bionic actually has a screen size exactly the same as the TBolt, Height and Width. I still think the SGS2 has the edge.

we get it Rory, you like the Galaxy S II more now shut up. some of us still want LTE on a phone supposedly with great battery life and the next most powerful processor next to Exynos. there's fair trade offs here.

The Bionic has a GSM/WCDMA radio. It's a world phone. That came out in the FCC filing.
