The Moto Defy Plus brings only a 1 GHz processor which isn’t sufficient to run the latest iterations of Android. No matter what the world thinks about it, the Android Community will always love it and to prove that, it has come up with a root method for the device.
You will void your phone’s warranty if you root it. However, you can get it back by either installing stock firmware or unrooting your phone.
The procedure is very simple but only if you stick to the rules, specially if you are new to such things.
- Download the latest version of Framaroot and install the APK.
- Now, Open Framaroot select the action to perform. Select “Install SuperSU”.
- Thereafter, in the rooting menu, Select an exploit in list above to potentially root your device as GIMLI and proceed further. The rooting has now started and you will be getting an awesome success message.
- Once done, reboot the device.
When your Motorola Defy+ boots up, it should be rooted. Open app drawer and look for a new app called SuperSU there. You can also verify the root using Root Checker app from the Google Play Store.
To UNROOT, follow the same procedure but select “unroot” while performing step #2 and skip further. It will automatically unroot your device.
