Like any other Android device, you too, can root your Motorola Defy+. Known for its sturdy design, the smartphone is a water-proof / dust-proof device that can take pride of its Gorilla Glass coating and IP67 certification. Thus, if you opt to root your handset, you will be able to unlock its hidden potentials aside from the ability to flash some custom themes, ROMs and third-party apps.

To root your handset means that you are willing to take the risks. You may get your phone bricked and you may void your warranty. You also need to keep in mind that this rooting process can only be applied if your Defy+ is running on Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread. If not, you have to downgrade your phone’s firmware version.
