Motorola has been known for sleek devices that can withstand the tough conditions and use. One such device is the Motorola Defy+. Featuring a resilient 3.7-inch touchscreen with Corning Gorilla Glass coating and IP67 certification, the Motorola Defy+ is one tough device. The device is perfect for outdoor use as it can handle serious stress from dust and moisture.
Released way back in September, it runs on Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread and is definitely a rootable device. In this post, you’ll learn how to root your Motorola Defy+. For the rooting procedure to work, your device must be running Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread firmware, or else the method won’t work. Any Gingerbread version you use higher than 2.3.4 will result in a failed rooting, so if you have a higher Gingerbread version, you need to downgrade to 2.3.4 first.
Rooting will void your warranty. Mobile phone manufacturers highly discourage rooting as a means of hacking your device. On a positive note, rooting can unlock new features on your device (e.g., installation of third party apps and custom ROMs, administrative privileges over system-level files, etc.). However, you can unroot your rooted phone later on so you can recover your warranty coverage in case you need it at some future time.
Congratulations! You have successfully rooted your Motorola Defy+. Enjoy the benefits of having a rooted device.
