    So the "rooted stock" system isn't one of the 4 roms that you can load; ok.

    Am I understanding this correctly: Once you root, you can boot to either (a) the "non-safe" system, which is the stock system, or (b) the "safe" system, which would be your choice of any one of the 4 roms that you put in the 4 rom slots. Correct? And the roms are what you have made "patches" for so they will work with non-Verizon phones, right?

    Won't know anything until you successfully root. If it works then that would open the gate for more things like ROMs and such.

    We both have the same generic CDMA RAZR MAXX with the same kernel version. I see no reason in the world why you couldn't root. Go for it!

    Ok folks, da Wuff is in da house!!! I'm rooted, using Matt's utility (Thanks Matt) and thanks Chris and thanks Bradenfontaine!!!

    I've got Superuser installed, and made a Titanium B/U of everything. Chris, I have LOADED Safestrap 2.11 but have NOT run it. Should I use it, or the newer one (version 3-point-whatever)?

    what we need first is a backup. i say 211 is safe for you to make a backup. give that a shot. but as fast as things move, 3.11 is out now and that is what Jelly Bean will require. so.... i dont know the answer :/ and i hate not knowing. try 3.11, it is all touch based and has a better build to it. there, 3.11 is my final answer.

    any downside to 3.11? I downloaded it and put it on the SD card. Have not run it as of yet.

    ok, I installed 3.11 and did my first backup. No problems. Got the stock rom backed up, and right now that's all I have. So far, so good! NO GLITCHES WHATSOEVER!!!!

    Thanks Bradenfontaine and Chris!!! Another satisfied customer!

    Dylan,

    I'd put Safestrap 3.11 on next and run it. This gives you a way to manage your ROMs. You can keep your stock rom in one "slot" and then add 4 additional custom roms to the 4 other slots, and can select what you want to run from a menu when you boot up.

    Here is a link to get Safestrap 3.11: [RECOVERY] Safestrap Recovery v3.1 [12/29/2012 V3.11 - Stock Flash+] - xda-developers

    what phone do you have? and is it rooted? You have to be rooted before you install safestrap.

    yes, if it is rooted then you have "unlocked" it. just sit tight, Jelly Bean is on the way for the Maxx read up on VooDoo Root Keeper, you're going to need it soon.
