    So is it too early for a "rooting, ROMs, and hacks" section?

    I haven't looked closely yet, but I'm theorizing that "Pete's" script/utility will probably work OOTB on the RAZR.

    That was my thoughts as well.

    For us up-til-now non-rooters, tell us why we want to root? You haven't even seen the phone yet, so how do you know there's stuff you want to change? From what I read, this does NOT mean you can get ICS anyway...which would seem to be the main point.

    Verizon is going to load it up with bloatware that you can't delete and it slows the phone down. Well, you can't remove it... Unless you root! It also allows you to make a nandroid backup. So if anything ever goes sideways you can completely recover your phone to your last backup..

    ICS will be out in a supported version for the RAZR in the next few months anyway. I'm not in a rush to push it on my phone ahead of when it's fully stable.

    Rooting the phone allows you to run certain apps that require superuser privs. SetCPU, which really helps battery-life while maintaining the phone's full performance capability, and Titanium Backup Pro, which lets you do full backups of any/all apps, data, etc on your phone and lets you easily remove bloatware are two of my favorites that I find almost indispensable.

    I love it when a plan comes together! Theory quickly becomes reality in this era.

    I have a question. If I root my phone with the provided methods above, is this something that can be reverted? (I.e. root my phone, remove a few things, then remove root access?)

    What do you mean "already rooted"? I'm looking to buy one this summer (if I don't get that Galaxy S3!) and of course I want to continue with being rooted. I don't have to do it myself for the RAZR?!!

    I think if you unroot the phone after removing bloatware then you have to reroot it to put the bloatware back on if you ever want updates from the carrier again.
