Hi, This did not work for me... It is not able to gain R/W access for /system as such failing to copy busybox and su files... I am on 2.3.6, after OTA UPDATE (651.150.1.XT910.Retail.en.EU).. Any idea???


It don't work after the OTA update. The solution work only with the retail version 2.3.5 for the moment.

I just wanted to say "THANKS!" - both this and the XDA version are really similar - almost alike, except the file size is smaller and with the method in this post, I did not get the 'path not specified' error.
Happy Thanksgiving and thank you!
I love it when a plan comes together...

Looks like i rooted the phone and then restarted the phone and the phone does not work anymore. I phone is in a endless boot. I guess there is no way to unbrick the know phone now.

Very strange you could try the method that XDA has posted, which is just about the same as here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1341578

That did not work for me, but this did - I have rebooted the phone several times without issue - even added recovery. There may be a way to get out of the loop over at XDA....
I love it when a plan comes together...

Hey all...sorry in replying late on my issue.

So..yesterday after a few hours for searching blogs and asking my friend for help in trying to un-brick my VZW Droid Razr. I decided to go to VZW store and try and get a replacement. I informed the VZW Rep that phone died and when i tired to charge the phone it was not charging at all. Informed the VZW Rep that the phone battery symbol has a question mark. The VZW Rep took to the back and came out with a brand new Droid Razr phone straight out of the box and with the cables. I was in and out the store within 20min.

I think what i going to do to buy another Droid Razr without contract and use that as my hack phone for testing before trying to unroot my VZW phone.

I was phoneless for a day and half.

Thanks all for you help.

Damn! Team Revolution - you guys rock!!!! Rooted in about 20 seconds - not including boot time. One question though, can I update after root, and if so, will I maintain root?

Thanks Guys! :D

Quick question before I dive in and finally root. What affect is this going to have on any further updates that get pushed out?

The Updates will unroot your phone. I don't intend to take any updates. I haven't taken one since the D1 and once ICS is running 100 percent we won't have a need to take Moto updates.

Yes, I unrooted using Z4, then did the one promt/click on this site to re root. There is also a app on the market that will unroot you. (.99) I thinks it is called ginger unroot, or something like that.

I can confirm that this app works without a problem. I installed and tried it and was unrooted within minutes. I rooted again using the method in this thread and everything went smooth again.

I am new to rooting. After going through this this I am still not sure if the above instruction will work on my Razr if it is already updated with the latest build 6.5.1-73_DHD-11_M1-2. If not, is there any other way to root my Razr?

From what I gathered Zerg will still work. Run this and let us no if you got a success. Also someone said they had to run it twice. Just go to the market and get root checker, its free.

Thank you so much. I did it once and it successfully rooted the phone without any error. It could not have been any easier for a novice like me. Now I am onto freezing all of those useless bloatware.

Thanks,

Does rooting the Razr prevent Motocast from running on the phone? Or from receiving updates?

Also, "MotoSignatureApp" is grayed out and I think this is what is prevent Motocast from connecting. Any suggestion to fix this without factory reset and rooting again?

Ok I finally got my OTA update last night, and went with the update, first time the phone rebooted after the update it locked up, I did a hard reset and it booted right up the 2nd time.

Here is my problem. If I run the one click root... zergrush... it says sending zerglings and all that and that it worked, but at the end it says that link failed, file exists.

So one how do I get rid of the file? or two am I supposed to be doing something else rather than running zergrush again.

PS... I did not do the rootkeeper app. I was at work when the update pushed out and did not have a chance to do any of that stuff. Am I stuck or do I have to restore to get back to stock first, then root, then protect root, then update?

i could be wrong but i don't think it does... rooting your device is similar to admin privileges or user account control popping up on windows asking for permissions for certain apps to run... maybe you changed something i havent rooted my razr yet so im not exactly familar with this device but the is the grayed out in taskiller? cause mine is grayed out

Awesome! thanks for this... I'm sure the others would of worked too but as stated version 3 of doomlord's worked perfect for me on this. I ran this on my Mac using windows Parallels and it was very fast. Faster than I remember my home desktop running windows 7 did.
