Going well with the new Motorola Atrix 2 handset? It has been more than few weeks since AT&T has released the Motorola Atrix 2 handset. Well, you can root your Motorola Atrix 2 handset using the simple one-click-root method and manual method. XDA forum member Jimmy273 has achieved the root access successfully. The root method of the Atrix 2 has been translated from the root method of the Droid Bionic handset, that was originally created by p3droid over at the MyDroidWorld forums. This manual root was probably a little tricky for most of you, especially for those who own an Android phone for the first time, but there is a one-click root method is also available. If you’re clear on this risky and tricky procedure, and ready to go forward, follow the instructions provided here at below.
