    Default Re: [Guide] Root and/or Load JB on RAZR HD & HD MAXX

    First time rooting, I've been using Android for just over 2 years, first a Galaxy S, then Droid Incredible 2 (For about 2 weeks, sound was awful), then a Droid X2 for the last year and a half.

    I received my Razr Maxx HD on Tuesday, I just rooted using the OLD method (I saw the Update from Verizon, but did NOT apply it).

    Mod seems to have worked, I have the Superuser application on my phone. How else can I verify?

    Does this MOD include Clockwork Mod Recovery (CWM) ? Or do I still need to install it?

    Next, I want to remove some of the Verizon Bloatware, Verizon Navigator, etc.. After getting ROOT, I tried to Drag it to the Top to the More Options, I still couldn't Uninstall it, but I was able to DISABLE it and Force Stop it. Is this basically the same as Uninstall or do I need to do something else? At least the icon is gone now!

    Thanks,
    Sam

    OK thanks I'm rooted now what all can I safely do with the phone I have titanium pro installed and rootkeeper installed. How can I speed up processor and make this phone more efficient? Oh how do I remove all the bloat for good and will I get the ota update next week when it gets pushed out.

    Verify root? Just use Root Checker from the Play store

    Received my Droid Razr Maxx HD on Tuesday Nov 27th, rooted via the Old method on Friday Nov. 30th. Ran the Verizon OTA update on Tuesday Dec. 4th... Voodoo OTA RootKeeper v2 did NOT restore Root. Ran your new method above and regained Root!

    Now Verizon is supposed to be pushing out Jelly Bean this week, do I use it or the Jelly Bean leak? Has anyone received and installed the official Jelly Bean update? Can you keep or restore Root?

    Thanks,

    I got the OTA Update today and I lost root. I'm going to try to re-root it today.

    Update: I was unable to re-root. My phone was originally rooted using this method for 4.04. I waited for the OTA Update to apply and then attempted to re-root using this method. I suggest applying the JB update manually to avoid losing root.

    I received my Jelly Bean IT's today. First I unrooted with Voodoo, then installed JB OTA, then I WAS able to restore Root with Voodoo. Sweet!

    I received my Jelly Bean OTA today. Since I installed JB OTA, my Amazon App store no longer works. I uninstalled, rebooted, no luck.

    Hey guys.

    Had root shortly after I bought my Razr Maxx HD but made the mistake of applying the October OTA. Lost root but since I had done all I needed root for, I left it alone.

    The OTA for JB came out and it won't install. When I tried to apply it manually, I press Power/Vol to get to recovery and I only see the recovery menu for a min before it reboots. (can't get into anything in the menu)

    the JB OTA keeps bugging me and this root method doesn't work.

    I get to the Bug report, I feel the vibration (it's a good vibration right?), but the program says "Exploit Failed" and it reboots with no root.

    Help?

    I just received my Razr Maxx HD today and downloaded all updates before anything and it installed the official JB OTA update. Will this root method still work even though JB is already installed before hand?

    Can anyone confirm if this work on NON-VERIZON phones?

    I have my phone purchased in Canada. Can I use these instructions to ROOT and/or go to JB?

    This may root you fine, but the Option 1 Fastboot Restore will brick you.

    Yes, but you have to do it in the right order. First you use the utility here DROID RAZR HD Utility 1.10 -- For Verizon XT926 Models [Windows] - Droid Razr HD - RootzWiki to go back to factory ICS. For the utility to work, you have to have USB debugging activated in the phone's Developer Options, and be booted into fastboot mode (when the phone is off, hold down power, volume up, and volume down simultaneously to get to the menu, then use the volume key to scroll down to fastboot, then press volume up to select).

    After you're back to factory 4.0.4, you install the 7.2 OTA security update to your phone the normal way. This is the little update that came out shortly after the phone was released, and you'll still be on 4.0.4

    Then you use the utility to root, and use the utility to install Rootkeeper. That will also install the Superuser app. Not sure if you still have to do this, but open the Superuser app, scroll over to the screen that has the binaries, and tap the binaries to prompt it to update.

    Do "Protect Root" or whatever it's called in Rootkeeper. Then do the temporary un-root in Rootkeeper. Then you can do the Jelly Bean OTA update. After the update is done, you can use Rootkeeper to restore the root.

    This worked for me, and that's all the steps as far as I can recall. By the way, I don't really know what I'm doing, I was just able to follow the steps, so I probably won't be of much help if it doesn't work.

    If you're using the 1.10 version of Matt's utility, the latest Superuser app is there. This step isn't necessary. I did the step, and the new version and the old version were the same.

    I have been reading and I thought I saw people say you can unroot, how hard is it to do that, especially if you change the boot loader?

    So has there been a way to root without doing a factory reset, then rooting, then using voodoo, then updating to jellybean? I would rather not do all that but I guess if there will be no other way to root.....

    Use the new root method. It is literally one touch. You connect the phone, run a batch program, hit enter I think twice and the phone reboots and is rooted. You can also unlock the bootloader now in the same manner. It even works on 4.1.2 where the old way did not.

    Did you get an error message during process? Have you found a custom rom in which everything works 100%?

    If I'm on build 9.16.6 am I screwed?

    Here's my situation. Phone worked great until I took the latest OTA to get to 4.1.2. Now the damned thing randomly reboots. Sometimes once in a day, sometimes 10 times in a day. And it there is not pattern at all. It can be sitting there not being touched and it reboots. It can be on the charger and it reboots. I can be using it and it locks up and takes about 20 seconds before it reboots. Its incredibly annoying. Suggestion? I'm fine with backing it up to 4.1.1 or rooting (haven't done that since I had an Incredible). Just reading the directions here and in the links it sounds like I'm stuck if I have build 9.16.6

    I'm lazy right now, so I'll just point you to this thread at another forum: [ROOT] Motochopper: Yet Another Android Root Exploit [4.1.2] - Droid Razr HD Development [XT926] - DroidRzr.com

    It worked, thanks! Now I have to dig around and figure out how to put on 4.1.1. Might wait a few days and see if root cleared up the random reboot first.
