Unlock the phone before rooting?
So I have been researching Rooting and all that comes with it. I don't plan on doing it for a few weeks but I want all the information I can find. When I first started looking, some site's were saying you have to unlock the phone before rooting. Is this true for the RAZR too? I cant seem to find any instructions of info on it. Maybe I'm asking the wrong question or something, but either way I'm getting no where Thanks for any help you guys can offer.

Re: Unlock the phone before rooting?
By unlocking I think you mean the bootloader of the phone and, no, it is not required to get root access. Go to this link, http://forums.androidcentral.com/raz...ethod-xda.html , and you'll probably find it is quite simple.
