Hey guys, it's been a while but I'm back. In this instructable you will be able to root your Motorola Photon 4G on Sprint, or Motorola Electrify for those on US Cellular like me. They are essentially the same device except the Electrify has no WiMax 4G radio inside since US Cellular is operating and expanding its LTE network this year.
Caution: I am not liable if you screw up the process for your device or if you need to un-root it for whatever reason. Follow these steps carefully! Make sure to do some research first before rooting your device: make sure that it is important enough to risk voiding warranty.
Step 1: First things first...
Enable debugging on your device. This is done by going through Settings>Applications>Development and by clicking on the checkmark for debugging. Also make sure your device is running android 2.3.5.; go to Settings>About phone>Android Version and check. If you are not running 2.3.5 go to the top of "About phone" and click on "System updates" and update your phone.
