Rooting Your MotoACTV On Linux

=======================Things *NOT* to do with your MotoACTV (Read First!)==============

  1. NEVER EVER EVER EVER issue the adb/fastboot commands "adb reboot-bootloader" or "fastboot reboot-bootloader", even though it works on other devices. This will often put your device into a fastboot loop that is NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE to get out of.The way to exit this loop is:
    A) With the device unplugged, hold START, POWER, VOL UP, VOL DOWN together for 10 seconds at least. You should see the screen flicker on and off twice.
    B) Plug in the USB cable to turn device on.
    C) You should boot back to rom, if not, do it again. It's touchy.
    -OR-
    Use the following command to exit the fastboot loop:
    fastboot oem fb_mode_clear
    after this, you may reboot normally. (Thanks CEnnis91 and [mbm]!)
  2. Never begin flashing ANYTHING unless your device has 60% charge or greater. Try for 100% full charge every time.



Becareful, each rom have a special way to root it.
