Motorola Droid 4 is a dual-cored handset originally released with the Gingerbread OS. Motorola recently announced that they had started upgrading the Droid 4 to Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS). However, most of the Droid 4 users have not received the ICS update on their devices yet.

Some of the people who received the update are now looking for ways to root their device. So here a step by step guide on how to root your Droid 4 with Android 4.0.4, Ice Cream Sandwich.

* Caution

  1. Download -
  2. Enable the “USB Debugging” on your handset. Go to Settings -> Development -> Check the tick-box that says “Enable USB Debugging”.
