  1. Any idea how to make the turbo into a hotspot. I have tried foxfi but unable to activate. Tried several different apps but they don’t work.

  2. Great videos. you mention you would show us how to get the Motorola clock widget on any android device.
    Can’t wait for that video to come out.
    thanks you do a great service to android users =)

  3. Hey guys I work for verizon wireless I’m a network engineer that does penetration testing. I talked motorola into giving me the fastboot oem unlock key. I’m actually on the phone with them right now. I’ll post back up later to share a more “social engineering” approach to rooting this phone and unlocking the bootloader!

  4. Ok They are giving me the run around. I keep asking for a level higher of tech support. I’ve has several technicians say it can be done but they don’t offer it. So if this next person can not give me the unlock key corresponding to the fastboot unlock code I got he will offer me parameters, as in if it is letters, numbers, hex, etc format and how many characters the key is. I will write a perl script with their parameters and just fukin brute force dizzz bish lol….I will post it up once it is written. So far I’ve been using the Nexus 7 rooting methods for kitkat (4.4.4) works great until I get to the unlocking section. That being said once I brute force this oem unlock key, Ill post my method for rooting the droid turbo!!!!!!!!!!! Wish me luck!!!!!

    P.S. Thank god this droid turbo is incredibly fast, should blaze through very fast with the brute force.

  5. Absolutely AWESOME SITE. Does Block the bloatware on the Droid Turbo just make the verizon apps invisible or does it get rid of them off the Phone?

  6. I have had the Turbo since it was released. I did the 1st OTA. I know with the newest OTA. Call enhancement features all good and well. By doing these OTA’s. Do you think by doing these updates it will affect the root process? Or would we have to Revert to Original Firmware Via Rsd Lite? If this is a noob question I am sorry. To me the only dumb question is the one that is not asked.

    • if we get root then taking the ota may stop you from rooting but that just depends on how the root method works. i always wait to take updates until root it working just to be safe.

  7. I Just bought the Turbo and I must have been an older production date because it looked and operated like my Droid mini. Well now this piece of shit LP 5.1 came out and I let it download and install. Now I hate this phone white keyboard white screens bull crap. I need to get back to KK 4.4.4 is there any way to do this ??

  8. For some reason, when I try to drag the .img to flash into the mofo box where you type moforoot.exe flash, it won’t let me drop it into the box. What gives? I’m on 4.4.4 system version 21.44.12. I’m using windows vista 64.

  9. My wife and I both have a droid Maxx. I’m running version 422 she’s running 444 they’re both rooted and use the stock hotspot. What are my chances of rooting the droid turbo and using it as a hotspot? Or am I stuck with the maxx for a while? We still have unlimited data plans.

  10. MaN wE nEeD tO fInD a WaY tO rOoT, oR fLaSh WiThOuT tHaT dAm MOFO rOoT… iBoGhT mY tUrBo WiTh ThE 5.1 AlReAdY iNsTaLlEd.. I cAnNoT seEm To FiNd ANY waY To RoOt It.. I wAnNa FlAsH iT…. AnY 1 GoT aNy IdEaS??

  11. So I have a rooted (MofoRoot) with droid turbo 4.4.4 so I can use wi-fi tethering. If I do this 5.1 update will I loose wi-fi tethering. Is there any way to install 5.1 and keep wi-fi tethering? I want to install the security patches but keep wi-fi tethering.

  12. The in call volume on this phone sucks. Is there any way that it can be placed into engineering mode and the volume raised? without rooting

  13. Can you help me, my phone updated 5.1, after update camera and flash led haven’t opened. I think, the software is fall. Can you help me root rom 5.1 of droid turbo? Thank you so much!

  14. Hey can you do a video or a simple write up of how I can unlock my bootloader with sunshine then mofo it. I currently am re mofo’ing a stock rooted image without xposed. When i use sunshine with an image that has xposed built in sunshine throws errors. I’m hoping reflashing an image without xposed built in fixes the problem. My end goal is to have an unlocked 5.1 turbo that’s rooted with a working xposed.
    Matthew Mcconaughey was right “Sometimes you gotta go backwards to go forward”

  15. I have the turbo and love it but am having trouble with Verizon customer service and billing. Do I need to unlock it or something when we go to a different provider

  16. Last week I unlocked my Droid turbo 5.1 via Sunshine. This new process does not root it, which is what I really want. Is there a simple, easy complete step by step guide showing/explaining how to root it? I have searched for several days without any luck. Your latest guide/video includes king root which really confuses me. I did try installing king root, but I could not get the phone rooted. I also tried the “installer” download from the Sunshine site, without success.

    It was suggested that I use the “fastboot” method, but that is new to me and confusing. Any help is appreciated. Thx, Frank

  17. Waiting patiently for the root to be released. Since I am not as smart as the root junkies I need your help. Please notify me when you have cracked the code. Or should I buy a different phone?

  18. Now you don’t need kingroot… the newest version of sunshine will do it all with one app and then you don’t have to worry about kingroot messing anything up on your phone. Genius! Thanks rootjunky for all your hard work providing this info!

  19. Is there a possible way to get around paying the 20$ fee. It isn’t much money, but I am use to the free roots. I have manually gone through all my old devices for the bloatware and for rooting. From full kernal roots to just roots for bloatware or just for hacking phone device games and such. @RootJunky, is there any personal way to get ahold of you for further info?

  20. Hello rootjunky,
    Thanks for all the amazing videos and the hard work i have an xt1254 LOCKED Boot Loader on Android 5.1 NO Root Stock Rom SU4TL-44 repaired with VerizonWirelessSoftwareUpgradeAssistant_1.4.7 because i was trying so hard to get back to KitKat But failed
    Recovery stock my Question is if I get root and unlocked the boot loader with sunshine …
    Can I get KitKat back ??
    Thanks A lot inadvance for all your help
    Have a great day

  21. Thanks Raven for your reply,
    you said
    “Don’t need Sunshine to unlock the the boot loader” then how can i unlock it ?
    “You can downgrade back to KitKat” how can i do that too ?
    thanks and good day to you 🙂

  22. Trying to recover some audio files deleted I guess was moving audio to SD card. I didn’t check a file folder to see if it moved from a file manager application. And I deleted folder from main internal drive and then checked and the file hadn’t gotten moved to as card.
    Dr fine didn’t work 13% and quits.

  24. Followed your video to root my Turbo and was successful! Thank you! In the video you hot a Google error and said you would share how to remove this in your next video. Were you able to address that issue and if yes which video? I get Google error and the Gmail error that they have stopped working. Please advise.

  25. You’re a good teacher bro! Keepin it simple, even when its all a foreign language to some.
    Successfully rooted 2 phones, unable to uninstall kingroot on one of them for some reason, but oh well.
    Just a heads up for future, I was trying to retrieve photos after my kid FDR my wife’s phone from messing with that pattern lock. Tried several recovery programs first on mine by deleting files and then was able to recover. But not on my wife’s phone, guess the FDR did its job. Bummer!
    You better believe I’m executing your ‘remove fdr’ video next.
    Thanks again bro!

  26. Hey I have an unlocked bootloader thanks to sunshine but I am running cm12.1 and want to go back to the standard 5.1 if I reinstall the factory software from rsd would it relock the bootloader or am I safe

  27. Any news on root & unlocked BL for Droid Turbo 2!? And whats the chances of gaining root with android 6.0-6.1 wenever the update comes out any day now…. Trying to decide if i should upgrade or stay at 5.1.1 lol

  28. Hello Rootjunky,
    Thanks for all your work again
    I have asked you up here
    ” i have an xt1254 LOCKED Boot Loader on Android 5.1 NO Root Stock Rom SU4TL-44 repaired with VerizonWirelessSoftwareUpgradeAssistant_1.4.7 because i was trying so hard to get back to KitKat But failed
    Recovery stock my Question is if I get root and unlocked the boot loader with sunshine …

    Thanks A lot inadvance for all your help
    Have a great day
    and hopefully i will hear back this time 🙂

  29. Ahmad yes you can revert back to KitKat with unlocked bootloader all the info and files you need are over in the XDA forum for the droid turbo just unlock the bootloader and you can flash over the old KitKat you will also have to downgrade your radio though and as far as I know you will have to do that through adb. But like I said head over to the forum and its all there

  30. I have accidentally deleted camera roll on droid turbo. Everything I have read says phone has to be rooted to run any recovery programs. Have not rooted phone yet, all attempts have failed. Any experience with photo recovery success? Desperate to get photo’s back asap.

  31. I would like to transfer my pictures from my camera card straight to my phone, but I need a rooted phone in order to to it. Does anyone have any clue how to do it? Another thing is I’d like to it (if possible) with out doing a factory reset or loosing any of my phone’s data.

  32. Hello sir

    Just asking you that in Motorola turbo
    When I flash system file(mofo root) for root my data safe or deleted all my data

  33. Thank you soooooooo much Sean for your reply,

    have you done that before ?
    if you did … would you please send me the link for the post you followed there to get it done successfully
    Also what if i use RSD to flash the original KitKat ROM will i still need to downgrade the radio using adb ??
    please let me know cause I’m a bit confused with the radio downgrade
    please e-mail me the steps needed so i can go ahead and downgrade
    My e-mail is : England_mydream@msn.com
    Thanks A lot man you really gave me hope to keep such a great phone especially after considering selling it because of the really unreliable battery drainer Android 5.1 🙁

  34. I need to get my Droid Turbo back to stock to submit for warranty. I have reset it to factory but still has partial root and TWRP recovery. How can i put it to OEM?

  35. I got the same question – Is it possible to downgrade from SU4TL-49 to SU4TL-44 OR will an ROOT fix be made to accommodate the SU4TL-49?

  36. Have unrooted XT1254 running on Page Plus. Wife did the OTA programming(*22890), now I no longer have 4G…just 3G. Anyway to fix that? Appreciate any assistance

  37. Hello Tom my name is Furqan hashmi
    My problem is the phone is not showing developer option I have taped build number more than seven time but there is no any answer please give me a solution…….

  38. Hey I have a Droid turbo and I was wondering about it there was a root for it running build number SU4TL-49. And if there is a root for it then is there any way to get around verizon’s advanced calling when using the phone on straight talk?

  39. Hi, I have same problem too, My phone has su4tl-49 and don’t allow developer options, I was trying installing usb debug apk and show developer options are not available for this user

  40. Hi, I have same problem too, My phone has su4tl-49 and don’t allow developer options, I was trying installing usb debug apk and show developer options are not available for this user

  41. Hello,
    I have a droid turbo that is on build SU4TL-49. I was able to get the developer options to display, but I can’t get sunshine to root my device. Anyone know how to root this build?

    Thanks

  42. Respected Team
    Please give ma a solution for Motorola droid trubo XT-1254 buil Number SU4TL-49 Who to open Google Account .because this build number SU4TL-49 not on developer options. please please please.
    I’m waiting for your response in my e-mail.

  43. sir yours tutorials is very good but i faced moto xt1254 build number su4tl-49 cannot open usb debugging plz help me.old build number su4tl-44 dubble tap 1.2.3.4.time try show developer .but when i tap this build number su4tl cannot show.what problem sir plz help thanks junnkyrooy team

  44. I have a Droid turbo xt1254. Build SU4TL-49. Have enabled developer options successfully. Is there still no root for this device on this build number? Seriously? Come on people, where is this root? Can’t anyone help here?

  45. I was able to unlock bootloader with sunshine and installed kingroot. My problem is FRP. Without getting into developer tools with build 49 I cant allow usb debugging. So now I have a unlocked droid turbo with no access to usb debugging. Was hoping you could find a loop hole in this patch. Ive seen a bunch of forums with people who have the same problem when they did this update from 44 to 49 build. Any ideas?

  46. I installed the ADB drivers and downloaded and ran the batch files from Droid-Turbo-Block-Bloat-Ware V1 and V2 but get this message every time I run either of the block batch files:
    “pm create-user: create a new user with the given USER_NAME,
    printing the new user identifier of the user”

    and

    “pm remove-user: remove the user with the given USER_IDENTIFIER, deleting all data associated with that user.”

    Ultimately, the script has no affect on the apps.

    What am I doing wrong?

  47. Hello,

    I used to be real good at learning and solving problems…but, alas, I got old or lazy or something…so, I look here, to you, for help.

    I used sunshine to root a Droid Turbo (I; XT1254) so as to turn on the hotspot feature (Verizon unlimited data plan). Well, the other day I read about some awesome wifi tether app (curious to try on another phone), I installed this app on my Turbo and it seems to have broken the hotspot. USB works fine, but when I turn on the hotspot from the quick pull down menu, it creates the SSID and devices can connect, but there is no internet. I assume a copy/paste of a working hotspot provisioning file would maybe do the trick or changing some setting related to it, but I just don’t know. (Also, I’m not able to change the SSID name or password; when I try, the “SAVE” box is greyed out.)

    on SU4TL-44, 5.1

    Thanks very much (to you, RootJunky or anyone else who can help)

  48. Yes, go to your apps and hit HOTSPOT. IF you don’t see it, you probably got it DISABLED. SO, go to settings, the Apps, scroll left to the colum of Disabled Apps hit ENABLE.
    Send way os going through the mo ile data menu to tethering.

  49. Tried hitting build number like 20 times trying to enable developer mode but it jst can’t I need help pls

    Motorola droid turbo
    Android version 5.1

  50. I have a droid turbo that i droopped in water , it worked fine at first , then after i panicked and used an air compressor to help dry it out , the screen started acting up and only showing half of it until finally it went black and now when i plug it in i can hear it cycling in bootloader mode over and over. I was able to get it to start in fastboot because my pc finally recognized it when i plugged it in and ADB recognizes it as a fastboot device. Is my phone bricked beyond return, does the problem seem to be in the mother board, lf it was fried would it cause the screen to not show and would purchasing a new motherboard be likely fix and run the display right. Or can I just use adb to some how unbrick it and they will both work then. Thanks in advance for your response and opinion

  51. i have ALS and find it hard to hold a cell phone. is there some way other than google or skype to talk on the cell. is there some way to completely emulate the cell on the computer?
