Used to have this phone. The only good thing was the build quality, the rest were pretty mediocre, now I've upgraded to Sony Xperia M4 Aqua which costed the same as the Defy Mini I bought 4 years ago and has the dust and water proof features that I like.

I own this phone since November 2013 and want to root this. Do any one know how could I do this or is there any ICS available for this model. Please help.
[deleted post]I have done it. And it's perfectly working for me.
I have a lot of apps but I'm still having 70mg free internal memory
Great phone. Only problem is the internal memory. Very Fast phone. Very nice body. I love it.
I like this phone because of it's durability. It has fell several times but nothing happened to it.
My only problem is it's internal memory. 160mg. And it's filled with bloatware. Stupid and useless apps.
But all the same, the phone is good for it's price

Does anyone know how to root this phone? It's awesome, good looking and nicely rugged but the bundled apps and the little internal memory are a problem. I've tried with one click, universal androot, unlock root and even with batch files and can't root it. It doesn't have fastboot though. I would be glad if I could root it.
Purchased my phone 06/05/2013.. Had to send back when it suddenly stopped working, returned with data difficulties. Sent away again a month later when unable to charge phone. Curious to know if there is a recall on this model as I have been given information that this particular model is faulty?
would have been OK but for the bloatware you can't easliy remove and the puny inernal memory. maybe moto did this to keep people buying their bigger more expensive phones?
I'm on my second and once the conract is over it will be given to the kids, rooted so they can play games on it. Not much use otherwise.
I'm on my second one of these and will ditch it as soon as possible. The bloatware the carrier and Google provide fill up the 160Mb or so of internal memory very quickly. You might get half a dozen apps on if your are lucky. My first one was in for repair within 2 months then back twice with a BSoD at the end. Second is about as useful. a good idea ruined by Google's bloatware.
Feature packed phone with a good battery life. Data connection is excellent as is the hotspot and GPS. I especially like the built in fitness mode and compass.
A very practical phone especially for out and about.
not dust proof , not anything , just a crap device ! i work in a dusty enviroment , and i had a samsung , i tought this will be an upgrade. the earspeaker started to make funy noises. no bluetooth transfer for audio , bugs in the os. motorola a crap phone owned by a crapp company GOOGLE
