One Click Interface for GladRoot of the Motorola Atrix
While this is no large feat I have created a GUI Interface for GladRoot 4.2. I have had many people request an easy way to use GladRoot without having to manually run .bat files so I took 10 minutes and created this as a happy medium. While this GUI only runs the files that are already at your fingertips it will give those lazy users the ability to just click a button to run the correct files You will still have to read the windows within GladRoot.
If you have already used GladRoot to update to 4.1.57 just open this up and click “After Update 4.1.83″ and your done.
I have included the GladRoot 4.2 files and the GUI within a zip file that must be unzipped directly to your Root drive. (C:/GladRoot4.2). The file to run the GUI will be GladRoot.exe
If anyone has issues please leave comments.

I would like to thank everyone at XDA for the actual brains behind the GladRoot project. My only contribution is literally visual
Root your Atrix with GladRoot v4.2 on AT&T 1.83
Before you begin your phone must be rooted previously using GladRoot and phone must be running 4.1.57.
If you aren’t rooted and already updated to 4.1.57 or 4.1.83
1. If you have already updated your phone to 4.1.83 and its not previously rooted using GladRoot please follow these instructions to get your phone back to stock so that you can flash your firmware back to 4.1.26.
If you are Running firmware 4.1.26
2. After you have flashed back please follow these instructions to root your phone using GladRoot and then update to 4.1.57.
If you are running firmware 4.1.57 and currently rooted using GladRoot
3. All you have to do once your Atrix has firmware version 4.1.57 and rooted is update your phone to 4.1.83 and run the afterupdate.bat in your Gladroot folder again.

As always this article is here for informational purposes and Android Advice cannot be held responsible for any damage to your phone. Rooting your phone is against your TOS and while we do not condone this we want you to be informed.
Root your Atrix with GladRoot v4.2 on AT&T 1.57
- This will root your phone. There is no need to run aRoot before this, and you should NOT be running SuperOneClick anymore Gladroot will root the same way aroot does and cleanup the SuperOneClick.
- This has options to enable sideloading and the tethering APN. Enabling sideloading will not add an Unknown Sources checkbox.
If you are already on 1.57 and do not have root, you MUST flash back to 1.26 for this to work. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Installation instructions: 1.26 to 1.57
- Download the script – link to download GladRoot
- Extract the GladRoot folder and files to C:\. Do not install anywhere else. Having it inside a folder with a space will cause the script to FAIL.
- Make sure your device is 1.2.6 and is not running any mods, I recommend a fresh SBF flash of 1.2.6. Download links and installation instructions here
- Enable USB debugging (Settings -> Applications -> Development).
- Connect your phone via USB
- Run gladroot.bat and follow the on-screen directions (If you’re using Windows 7, run as admin by holding down control and double-clicking).
- Verify that there are no errors before updating.
- Go to Settings -> About phone -> System updates
- Follow the on-screen instructions. First download the update (you will need a Wi-Fi connection for this), then it will prompt you to install.
- The update will reboot the device and install itself. If this part fails it’s because you are not on stock 1.2.6 firmware. Start over and read the directions.
- When it boots back up, verify USB debugging is still on. Some users report that disabling and re-enabling USB debugging solves a few issues with the script detecting your device (Settings -> Applications -> Development).
- Run afterupdate.bat (If you’re using Windows 7, run as admin by holding down control and double-clicking).
- Make sure you allow the superuser request on your phone or it WILL fail.
- All done! Enjoy your rooted Atrix on 4.1.57!
