I'm getting a DEXT tomorrow, I was wondering if anyone had any info on rooting the device?

Obviously I'll have a play, but any head start would be appreciated!

Hi, finally the MAN coming to this topic. I'm still searching for rooting method but still no clue.
Only key combination to be found and still stuck since nothing was allow there.
Seem that motorola will not given source or anything to public, as one guy dare ask moto dev team for a rooting for app test and moto denied since they have tool to distribute app for testing purpose.

Still waiting for more news from US side since the phone just hit there, but seem that the DROID is making a bigger scene right now.

Here is what I got, its not a lot but I'm a noob. USA CLIQ btw. :)

I have tried mutliple different ways of rooting this beast. To no avail, I cannot get the commands to run correctly as I said I am a noob. :S

The Sprint HTC hero has been rooted,and all other root methods,like the CLIQ have failed. but this should work on the CLIQ/DROID....
Finally there may be root access for the CLIQ! Here is a quick How To for everyone.
Thanks Geoff!
Thanks XDA-Developers (as always!)!
Thanks JManley69 for brining the procedure from Sprint Community!
Thanks Sprint Community!
I. Before You Begin
You need to be able to access the phone via ADB.
Follow this procedure to get ADB setup on your CLIQ
How To Setup ADB/
Install USB Drivers
II. Root the CLIQ
1. Download the following file and then unzip it.
AsRoot2
2. Take the unzipped file and save it into the Tools folder of your AndroidSDK.
3. Plug your phone in via USB and do NOT mount the SD card.
4. Open the Command Prompt and type the following (hitting enter at the end of every line):
cd\
cd AndroidSDK\Tools\
adb devices
And make sure your phones’s serial number pops up (if not redo section I).
5. Then type:
adb push asroot2 /data/local/
adb shell chmod 0755 /data/local/asroot2
adb shell
/data/local/asroot2 /system/bin/sh
Fails Here
6. Then type:
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
cd /system/bin
cat sh > su
chmod 4775 su
All Done! You SHOULD now have root access! Try to download a root program from the Market and see if it works


And

Requirements:
Android SDK
This file: http://rapidshare.co.../304169950/try3
alt link http://www.4shared.c....e869/try3.html


Press Windows+R, type in cmd.
Then do:
cd <Directory where try3 is>
adb push try3 /data/local
adb shell chmod 0755 /data/local/try3
adb shell
./data/local/try3 /system/bin/sh
Fails here
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
cat /system/bin/sh > /system/bin/su
chmod 04755 /system/bin/su
All Done! You SHOULD now have root access! Try to download a root program from the Market and see if it works

Now you have root, via "su"

Same here on 1.14 the asroot2 got [Kill] before we can copy over.
Havn't try on 1.04 or earlier firmware because i update OTA on my DEXT.
