Motorola Defy Not Root Proof

Even though it’s packed with Motoblur one of the cooler phones to come out of this falls CTIA show is the Motorola Defy on T-Mobile.  This rugged little beast is water resistant and dust proof.  However it’s not root proof. We will have our first look review of the Motorola Defy early next week but we couldn’t wait to report that the Motorola DEFY has root.

The developers over at XDA have gained root access to the Motorola Defy. One of the XDA developers has posted directions using ADB commands to gain root access. There is also a one click root app called Z4Root that may work in the market.

If you’re ready to take on the XDA instructions please download the zip file here.  If you’re not sure what you’re doing DON’T Do it. We nor XDA is responsible in any way for any damage to your phone caused by rooting it.
