How To Guide: Root or Unbrick Your DROID 3

This method works on Motorola phones running Android OS 2.3.4 or earlier (MotoBlur 5.6.890 OTA from Verizon) and was designed for Windows users working on a DROID 3 device.


If you want to remove Verizon/Motorola bloat and bundled software, please see my thread at XDA with scripts.

Enjoy in good health, although if this method becomes defunct, I will probably not be able to help you.
