How to Root Motorola Milestone A853

Motorola Milestone A853 may be failing at certain things. Or it may be missing some important features, options and such. If any of these is true for you, a rooting is necessary. That’s what we have on the menu today!

In case you’re not familiar with many rooting methods, we’ll discuss one of the best ones here. The name of our chosen instrument is SRSRoot. Its help is immeasurable in bringing all kinds of new things on your Motorola Milestone. Downloading the app won’t cost a thing.

Once you familiarize yourself with this free tool, you’ll want to know what it can do for your 5-year-old device. First, you’ll meet the following: root-only apps and a faster 600 MHz Cortex-A8 CPU. After that, the handset shall be introduced to new features. These are also included: custom ROMs. The choice of OS for the Motorola Milestone A853 is this variant: Android 2.1 Eclair. Nothing is going to happen to it. The SRSRoot accepts this version; it actually supports every Android version released by Google.Motorola-Milestone-A853

The benefits of this procedure

The app is powered by an SRS Server and it has admin / superuser permission for you. It is also capable of improving the phone’s battery life. Customizing your handset is also an option thanks to the tweaks the new app’s bringing. The rooting is a process which should only be begun once a Build ID’s been chosen. There is no particular one to use; simply opt for one which you like the most / have used before. Ours looks like this: SHLA_U2_03.05.0.

Once the root access is present, the phone will stay safe from any sort of security problem. Bloatware isn’t delivered, either. Last, but not least: the app can unroot the phone and it’s compatible with a lot of products.

When going for an upgrade, remember this: the handset will end up with no root access and system partition. Thankfully, the smartphone’s internal / external SD cards and data aren’t going to be harmed. The warranty, on the other hand, is the first to go after root access becomes available. In this case, you have this option: restore it. To be able to do it, only a guide specializing on your device will do the job.


The following is something you must absolutely perform in case you don’t want problems during the rooting:

  • USB drivers are most necessary on the notebook and you’ll find them here;
  • access the address we just mentioned and download the drivers on your notebook;
  • flash them as well afterwards;
  • activate the smartphone’s USB Debugging option;
  • backups for the data on your handset should be made;
  • generate, when you’re done, a full NANDroid backup;
  • the notebook has to have Windows as its operating system;
  • turn off your notebook’s security software;
  • the security programs running on your Motorola Milestone A853 will have to be turned off;
  • the phone’s battery unit must be fully charged.

Step by step instructions

Here we are with our rooting steps. They are all going to help loads with the procedure.

  1. The action to start it off must include the SRSRoot app’s download on the notebook. In order to end up with it where it needs to be, click on this link. Then click on the page’s download button.
  2. At the end of this step, another one has to follow. Which sounds as such: after you install the app on your notebook, launch it there, as well. After it’s flashed and open on it, you have to make sure the phone’s Menu option is tapped.
  3. Once you are done with its activation, have Settings tapped, too. Under it is the next option you need to enable: Unknown Sources.
  4. Having performed these tasks, you are now able to also tap USB Debugging. You shouldn’t do it if you already turned this option on. So now that you’ve finished with the previous action, concentrate on the following.
  5. For it, you need the phone’s USB cord. This cable assures the creation of a connection between the handset and laptop. The two have to be plugged like this because you’ll need to root the smartphone next.
  6. [sc name=”banner-jos”]Doing that requires the following from you: tap Root Device (All Methods). The procedure will commence as soon as you activate the right option. All you need to do is wait for about 15 minutes; if you have to wait longer, you can redo the steps and solve this issue.
  7. If the problems are over, make sure you start your Motorola Milestone A853. Reboot System Now will aid with that, so tap it. The smartphone will then reboot on its own. And you’ll enjoy the rooting advantages very soon.

The root access with all of those benefits can be underwhelming. If you think so, the SRSRoot app provides you with the means to unroot the A853.
