The Motorola Droid Ultra is by far one of the largest Android smartphone released by Motorola – spotting a 5-inch AMOLED display. The Droid Ultra is one of the 3 Android devices unveiled by Motorola 3 months ago including the Droid MAXX and Droid Mini. I have to admit that the Motorola Droid Ultra is already a very powerful device, but you can still take a step further by overclocking the phablet’s CPU. But before you can do so, you must first get the device rooted. If you’re interested, then follow this tutorial on how to root the Motorola Droid Ultra.
Before we begin, I would like to warn you that during the process of rooting, there is a risk of bricking your own device. So if you still want to proceed, you’ll be doing it at your own risk and we will hold no responsible for any form of damage on your device. Its a good practice for you to backup your device to an external source apart from your own SD Card.
Follow the steps below on how to root the Motorola Droid Ultra
- Download the MotoRoot1.1-Droid.apk to your desktop.
- Connect the Motorola Droid Ultra to your PC.
- Run the ADB.
- On the ADB, type in the following command
adb install -r motoroot.apk
- Once you have installed the apk on your device, open the app from your app drawer.
- On the app, tap on the Setup ( Will reboot ).
- It will begin rooting your device and reboot once its done.
- Install the SuperSU from Google Play.
- Congratulation! You’ve just rooted the Motorola Droid Ultra!
How to Unroot the Motorola Droid Ultra
- Factory Reset the device.
- Go back to the Motoroot app and select the Unroot option.
While you now have root-access for your Motorola Droid Ultra, but do take note that its bootloader is still locked after the process – so you will not be able to install custom ROMs or kernel to the device. If you encounter any problems during the process, please feel free to comment below the post or visit the original developers.
This is way out dated. the developer created a new tool PwnMyMoto almost 2 months ago. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=45598648
