    Hey, idiot, how does one put clockworkMod on the device if it is not rooted? If you have rooted the phone already, this article is reduntant, a waste of space on the interwebs, and huge waste of my time!

    I do not have an sd card. Can I still root my 4g atrix 2.3.4 version?

    This article is poorly written, the author assumes the user has preexisting knowledge about how to actually boot into clockworkmod, which straight forward information is hard to find.
