turn phone on
enable usb debugging (system/apps/developer options)
connect to pc
start program, see instructions specified with the option you chose
there are on screen instruction, but this is what will happen

click enter
to files will be flashed to phone
phone will reboot

when phone has completed reboot
click enter
files will be pushed to phone with adb
phone will reboot
when phone has completed reboot
click enter

press both volume buttons when you see ! in a triangle with android andy
wipe cache using volume buttons to scroll, select with power button
when complete, select reboot with power button
Done.


when running the batch file or slitaz you may see these errors
rm failed for /data/preinstall_md5/magic.md5 no such file or directory
no root.img.gz no such file or directory
rm failed for /data/preinstall_md5/magic.md5 read only file system

that is fine, it will still work

and it installs bsr/ system recovery

I have tested and works

or
manual method may update this later

you need
moto-fastboot.exe not fastboot.exe
adb files found in petes root tools
Petes root tools
modified root.img in batc

instructions
extract any .zip or .gz
move all files to same folder like C:\root to make it easy

Enable USB debugging on phone
open command prompt
enter
cd/
cd c:root
adb shell rm /data/preinstall_md5/magic.md5 ( don't worry if you see an error)
adb shell ln -s /data/local.prop /data/preinstall_md5/magic.md5

boot phone to fastboot
run commands
moto-fastboot.exe flash preinstall root.img
moto-fastboot.exe reboot

let phone boot complete, then reboot again (reboot just replaces the local.prop, but the old local.prop is still in memory, till second reboot)
command
adb shell should give you a root prompt (# instead of $)

run petes root tools, zerg rush, or superoneclick
then you rooted




VooDoo Method

1 start with full stock 2.3.4/1.3.380,if you have rooted with anything other than Pete's Root Tools*, have altered/deleted stock file, or if you are already on 2.3.5/1.3.418 you have to SBF
SBF to full stock 2.3.4/1.3.380 (VRZ_MB870_4.5.1A-DTN-150-30_1FF_01.sbf)
read How to SBF an X2, ezSBF DX2, and Common X2 Questions and Answers
if you don't want to lose data, don't wipe data (although it is recommended), unless you bootloop
if you bootloop you have no choice, but to wipe data via stock recovery see Common X2 Questions and Answers

2 install Voodoo OTA Root Keeper, backup su, then temp unroot (keeps backup)

3 install update 2.3.5/1.3.418 , (Blur_Version.1.3.380.MB870.Verizon.en.US.zip)**

update.zip, place in sd card root (not in a folder)

and install via stock recovery see Common X2 Questions and Answers

4 restore root with Voodoo
