As you know, if you want to use your smartphone on its full performances you must first unlock it. That can be achieved by unlocking the bootloader and by rooting the internal system. So, that’s why, during the following step by step guide we will be checking in how to root the Motorola Atrix HD on any firmware and by applying a “one click” method. The root operation will be easy to complete as all you need to do is to download a dedicated tool and run the same on a Windows powered computer; but we will talk more about this during the proper steps.

Until then, you must understand that by rooting the Motorola Atrix HD, you will actually remove the factory restrictions from your device. In this way the internal system will be unchained so that you can gain more access to it. That’s why, after rooting, custom tools will be able to access the system files, meaning that custom ROMs, updates and complex apps can be installed on your smartphone. So, you must root the Atrix if you are looking forward in update it with Android 4.1.2 based custom ROMs, or if you want to apply customization and maintenance operations on the same. As you know, once the OS is rooted, you can flash a custom recovery image, like CWM recovery, which is an extremely important tool for your handset.

Now, the present tutorial can be completed for rooting the Motorola Atrix HD on any firmware, so you don’t have to check the version of the current ROM. Furthermore, this method is fast and almost intuitive as you will have to use a “one click procedure” and that’s all. Unfortunately, the root task is not supported by Motorola, meaning that the warranty will be void. In case you will need to restore the warranty, all you need to do is to downgrade to the stock ROM, or to update your Atrix HD with an official release of the Android platform. Of course, by applying such operations, the root access will be revoked and the bootloader relocked.

As usual, before advancing in performing something, you must first backup the data. We are dealing with a complex operation which is being considered risky and all the data which is being stored on your phone’s internal storage memory might get wiped out. Therefore, the first thing to do is to save your personal info. You have some backup tips and tutorials for learning how to save the contacts, the text messages, the call logs, the internet setting and more, so don’t hesitate and search for the same through our how to section. On there you can find also how to guides from where you can learn which are the best custom ROMs and beta firmware available for your device.

As mentioned, for being able to apply the root operation for your Motorola Atrix HD, you need to have access to a Windows running computer and to the phone USB cord. Then, on the handset and on the PC you should deactivate or even uninstall the security tools as these programs are usually interfering with our work. For connecting the device with the computer, on the phone enable the USB debugging option (go here: “Settings -> Applications -> Development -> USB debugging”) and finally charge its battery or else it can get turned off in the middle of the procedure. Apply the below steps only for the Motorola Atrix HD and not for similar smartphones because you can end up in bricking your Android based devices. The present root guide has been developed and tested by those of xda-developers, so we have them to thanks for this opportunity.
