Root the Motorola Atrix 4.5.91 on Gingerbread 2.3.4 (Updated)


Petes Motorola Root Tools

We have had the manual instructions on rooting the Motorola Atrix 4G build 4.5.91 running Gingerbread 2.3.4 for a while now. This being said there is a one click method that is available and been tested to root the device much easier. The method was created for other devices but we have personally used it on the Atrix 4G and its flawless.

Root Instructions for the Motorola Atrix 4G on Gingerbread:

  1. Put your Atrix in USB Debugging Mode (Settings -> Application -> Development)
  2. Connect your Atrix to your PC via USB
  3. Download and unzip Pete’s Motorola Root Tools (Download Link)
  4. Run the Executable and click “Root My Phone”
  5. Be patient as it takes a few minutes
  6. Congrats your Atrix 4G is Rooted

Ignore the fact that the Motorola Atrix 4G is not listed as a device within the program that it roots. We have rooted multiple Atric 4G’s using this tool and never had an issue. Also many of the Atric 4G’s that we have rooted with this method are running with unlocked bootloaders and CM7.


  1. Hi. I’m a newbie – 58 yrs old, want to root my Atrix 4g with gingerbread v 2.3.6 Pete’s Motorola Root Tool was my dream come true. Keeps me out of the CMD prompt and therefore out of trouble 🙂
    Tried 3 times – Motorola hates me. Tool won’t work. Suspect because of .6 version.
    Any suggestions how I can finally root my 4G and subsequently get some control and punt the bloatware and manage my internal storage? Then I can use Titanium BU and root uninstaller, with a little help from my friends. Thanks and Merry Christmas!

  2. Thank you. Worked exactly as described. My phone was rooted in 4 minutes! 2.3.4 (4.5.91) with unlocked bootloader. Next step CM9.
