If you were thinking about picking up one of Motorola's newest Android handset, maybe this will push you over the edge. Android tinkerer Dan Rosenberg has published a root exploit that should work on almost all of Motorola's recent devices including the RAZR M, Atrix HD, Photon Q, RAZR i, and the upcoming RAZR HD.


The exploit is exceptionally easy to run. All you have to do is get your device plugged in with USB debugging on. Download the .ZIP file from the source link below onto your Windows PC, and launch the 'run.bat' file. You will get a series of instructions guiding you through the process, but it should only take a few minutes.

Users in XDA are reporting success, but as usual, proceed at your own risk. Errors might crop up during the root that require you to do a factory reset before continuing. Backing up is always a good policy. This exploit reportedly works on the leaked Jelly Bean update Motorola is working on, but it will probably be patched down the line.
