If you are rocking Verizon Moto Droid XT1225 and want more features by rooting it, then you can find this post helpful as I have posted working guide to get root privileges on it. There are several advantages of running rooted, check below to know more, in this tutorial along with rooting you will also install TWRP recovery that helps you install or flash any custom ROM available for your device easily.

Benefits of rooting

  • With the help of root access, one can remove those apps which are pre-installed by your network provider or by manufacturer.
  • Because of rooting you can also get the free storage space, rooted apps are available for efficient memory management.

  • It provides customization options when you use your new administrative rights to flash a custom ROM (again, see the end of this procedure for more info on that).
  • Rooting also increases the battery life of the Smartphone because those running constantly can be removed).

Things to be Done

  • This will void the warranty of your device.
  • Download and install proper USB driver.
  • The process mentioned below requires a Windows PC.
  • You must have enabled the USB debugging on your device (Settings > Developer options > USB debugging).
  • For security reasons, create a complete backup of all your data.

The guide involved in flashing custom recoveries, ROMs and rooting your phone are highly custom and may damage your device.
