Hello everyone! I need a little help, I've been trying to get this ICS update to push through on my Droid Razr for a week and I've had no luck. I have read all the post and clearly understand what I need and thats Matt Utility 1.7, however everytime I click on the link, its not pulling up. So can anyone please provide me a working link to Matts Utiliity it'll be greatly appreciated. Thanks


The reason you can't OTA is more likely than not, something on your're phone isn't stock. Easiest way to OTA is use version 1.6 of Matt's utility, select option 1, then after you've reflashed .181, you'll be able to OTA correctly.

If you don't want to OTA, then either use version 1.81 of Matt's Utility or RSD Lite and the 180 sbf file.

Also, the current version of the utility is 1.81. I would check out that, instead of using 1.7. Just as with any program, Matt updates his utility. When a new update comes out, unless you need to use the older version, I would recommend using the current version.

The first mirror is not working, but the original location and the second mirror both work, as does the blur zip file. All of those links are in post #1 of this thread.
If you PM me here, I'll get it eventually, but I'm constantly on the move. If you need to reach me more quickly, email me at stealthmouse@gmail.com and add DroidRZR PERSONAL MESSAGE to subject line. Thanks!

Now I'm on this build of ICS, loaded it from the 1.7 utility. But I've been having problems with sparatic reboots, hangs. So I tried doing a few factory resets and still having the issues.

So I'm thinking of just reloading ICS from the utility again.

How would I preform this if I'm already running it. Just trying to make sure I don't brick my phone.

thanks for any advice.

If you're on ICS then use option 1 in matts 1.81 utility to go back to total stock

Yes, you should be on Android 4.04, which would be Option 3. However, you might want to just download version 1.81 of this utility so you have the most up to date version.

Rooting will not wipe data/apps.

For future sake, check out the About section on your phone to see what version of the OS you have. You'll want to pay attention to what Android version it is (4.04 in this case) and what name was given to the update. The last few digits are used to signifiy the name usually (.211, .215).

Never be afraid to ask if something is safe before modifying your device because it could cause permanent damage in some cases. Also, welcome to the community. Please try to combine multiple posts like this when doing them immediately back-to-back by using the 'edit' option rather than making a second post. This helps keep the email clutter down for people that have subscribed to the thread, and also keeps the site cleaner.

As I always give the warning, remember that rooting will void some coverage from your warranty as you are modifying your device to be outside the scope of Moto/Verizon's control.

Hope I can get some help here. I'm currently on 6.11.748 due to removing some vital bloatware leaving me unable to take OTA updates. Will this help me get back to where I can update? What would the method be exactly? Thanks for any help at all.

First let me say with a bit tongue in cheek that it is impressive that you are on a software version that is 3 OTA updates ago. Especially considering the length of time it took Moto to get us to ICS.

Anyway... I believe you can just do option 1 on this:

That will take you to the current ota of .211

My only concern is you are still on the old GB bootloader. I'm not sure if this is an issue or not. Maybe someone else can chime in here

There are utilities going back to that build and before. Search utilities, or I'll try to post the link in an hour when I'm at desk again.

This should work. It's the right bootloader/kernel. You will just be upgrading rather than downgrading. I'd suggest once you are stock, you root with voodoo/superuser, and do a temp unroot, then do all upgrades by OTA until you have .211. Then if you still have root (doubtful), you can restore it with voodoo. If not, you can use utility 1.81 to reroot.

http://www.droidrzr.com/index.php?/topic/1648-Droid-Razr-Utility-1.51-[Contains-6.12.173-Fastboot-Files]

I'm going to ask Matt to chime in as well. He may have a better solution in his files.

All right, you should be good to go. Please read through the OP, and if something doesn't make sense, post for help with a description/questions. I think best place to post, however, is the 1.7 help thread, as more support people lurk there and so you'll likely get an answer faster, and it's the right thread for posting for help. But if you post here, there are also experienced people who will help you out.

Thanks.

,211 is 4.0.4 so you're going to want to use option 3. The only prep needed is putting your phone in USB debugging and whatever it else it tells you to do.

Droid Razr Utility 1.7

I mean for this utility to be used by those who are on Gingerbread and want to go to Ice Cream Sandwich (6.16.211), and for those who are on Ice Cream Sandwich and want an easier unbricking tool and rooting tool that includes ICS versions of Bootstrap, Safestrap, and the beloved OTA Rootkeeper by Voodoo.


Rooting worked like a charm on my OTA ICS 4.04 upgraded RAZR XT910 (Asian GSM version). Couldn't be happier, Matti! ANOTHER great utility. I love ICS, but I really missed root! THANKS!

Thanks W0017roid for the video!



I do not want anyone stuck with this. Please please please, put the 6.16.211 update zip on your external SD card before doing ANYTHING!

If you do an option and end up in a semi-bricked state awaiting install and you don't have the update on your external SD card you aren't gonna have a good time.

It will NOT magically appear there by itself.

Functions of 1.7:

1. Self explanatory, hopefully. Fail-proof. (Just need you to put 6.16.211 update on your SD card!)

2. Implementation of my Unstuck Utilities into one simple function.

3. Dan Rosenberg's new ICS 4.0.4 Root method.

4. My implementations of TPSparky's 4.0.3 root method. You can use option 8 to use this root method, and option 9 after (if you choose).

5. Self explanatory.

6. Self explanatory.

7. Self explanatory.

8. For use with the 4.0.3 root method (option 4).

9. For use with the 4.0.3 root method (option 4).
