Root And Install Custom Recovery On Motorola Droid 4 With One Click

motorola-droid-4Aptly named Droid 4 Utility Pre-Release for Windows, the tool has been developed for the Motorola Droid 4 and released by XDA-Developers forum member mattlgroff which, as the title suggests, includes more than just your one click root. Earlier we covered a guide on rooting the Droid 4, a solution that was out just as soon as the device was released, leaving Motorola wondering where the lacked in locking down their devices bootloader. While we leave Motorola to worry about that, we’re glad they let their guard down, or for that matter, kudos to Dan Rosenberg for his motofail exploit that rooted the device. Coming back to the multipurpose tool, it also brings along a one click root for the Droid 4 on ICS 4.0.3 even though an update is not here as yet. More on the functions and how you can use this tool, after the break!

From the screenshot above, you can clearly see the features that the tool currently offers. However, fastboot functions will not work as there are not fastboot files included as yet. The developer has said to include a full fastboot restore in the future as well. The addition of the custom recovery via Safestrap Recovery app, gears your device up to get started with all its customization needs.

Now the question is how to go about using this tool?
