Obtain Root access on Moto X on any carrier, Droid Ultra, Maxx and Mini


It was few weeks ago when Motorola announced Droid Lineup's three new handsets for Verizon: Droid Maxx, Ultra and Mini. Moto X was announced couple of days later the announcement of these phones. A developer from XDA, Justin Case comes with a solution has found the way to achieve root access on these phones, and it is easy to do. Let's have a brief look on the story.

Justin Case has designed an app named PwnMyMoto. This app makes the device rooted. It is sideloaded to the phone using the Android Debugging Bridge or ADB. From there, it gets automatically installed. When on opening, it shows a screen prompting to acquire root access. Tap "Setup" and device reboots. After the reboot, you will see your device is rooted. It is a pretty simple way to have root access on your Droid and Moto X. Do you want to check if your phone is rooted or not (not only these 4 phones, but any phone) you can use this nifty utility: Root Checker.


Android Police guys have provided a step by step guide to do the process. If you are noob in his field then you can also have a video tutorial below on this article. Have a look on all of these links. All of them have approx same content. 

What's the good thing is, this process can root Moto X on any carrier. That means you will be no more be bounded to carrier. However, the bootloader remains unlocked so you can't install custom ROMs, but we expect to bootloader unlocker coming soon on XDA.
