As a teacher of English literature, whenever I think of rooting, I think of the fruit of the forbidden tree described in Milton’s Paradise Lost. Rooting devices is a forbidden act in the world of Android and if you do it to your devices, the modern gadget gods punish you by snatching away the warranty. Now, there are obedient and gentle people who do not want to void the warranty of the device they own and so they just keep themselves away from such things.

On the other hand, there is a big adventurous community who does not mind losing the warranty because when they think of the bounty rooting offers, warranty becomes a negligible thing. There are various OEMs and carriers that ship their Android devices with locked bootloaders. Before rooting such devices, you need to unlock the bootloader too, and unlocking it simply means voiding the warranty.

How would you feel if could root your Android devices without unlocking the bootloader? It’s really an awesome idea! XDA member Jcase, who is known for cracking the hardest nut with his shrewd root methods for Motorola devices, has now come with another root exploit for Motorola RAZR i. His new root exploit, called TwerkMyMoto, is a seven-step root method that will get your RAZR i rooted easily without having to unlock the bootloader.

So, if you own a Moto RAZR i and happen to be one who kept him/herself away from rooting for fear of losing the warranty of the phone, Jcase’s root exploit is something worth giving a shot.

Warning:

Activities like rooting are considered risky. If you still want to do it, proceed at your own risk. We or the developer of the exploit do not hold any responsibility for any kind of mishap done to your phone.

Preparations:

  • Download and setup the latest Android SDK on your computer. if you do not know how to do it, Read This Tutorial.
  • Download Jcase’s root exploit package for Moto RAZR i: TwerkMyMoto-1.0.zip  
  • Open Settings> Developer Options and enable USB Debugging.

How to Do the Trick:

As we mentioned above, the root exploit in discussion involves just a string of 7 command lines that you have to type in the cmd box. ust follow the steps below and your phone will be rooted in a matter of seconds:

  1. Connect your phone to computer using USB cable.
  2. Extract the TwerkMyMoto-1.0.zip file.
  3. Now launch a cmd window. Just open the TwerkMyMoto-1.0 folder, press Shift button+right-click with the mouse on an empty space, and select “Open command window here” option.moto-razr-root
  4. Now type the following command lines one by one:
     adb push su /data/local/tmp/
     adb push rootme.sh /data/local/tmp/
     adb push TwerkMyMoto.jar /data/local/tmp/
     adb shell chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/rootme.sh
     adb shell /data/local/tmp/rootme.sh
     adb reboot
     adb shell /data/local/tmp/rootme.sh

If everything goes fine, you will have a rooted Motorola RAZR i at the completion of the procedure. Just start enjoying root access on your phone with still a locked bootloader. Cheers!

  1. Hi, I’ve got as far as writing the first command ”adb push su /data/local/tmp/”, but I get an error, saying “‘adb’ is not recognized as an internal or external command…”. Can you help, please? Thank you.
