Hello,
I am a Droid Razr MAXX user. I followed the excellent instructions posted

by spc_hicks09 in order to upgrade to Jelly Bean 4.1.2. I was on the 4.0.4 last stock release back from June.

Before flashing I rooted using Matt's utility and also kept a backup of root using Voodoo Rootkeeper. The upgrade was definitely a success except for the fact that root access wasn't quite working, but nothing that Matt's root fixer wasn't able to handle. So I had root and 4.1.2 and life was pretty sweet for a day :D

Until I realized the android.media.process was sucking up 51% of the battery somehow. Upon reading somewhere that it had to do with a corruption on the ext SD card and such, I tried formatting the SD card but that didn't quite work. So I decided to do a "factory reset" assuming that it will only delete data and 1) the phone's system software will remain intact 2) I will still retain root.

Now after the factory reset, it seems like I no longer have root, but I may try Matt's root fixer again to see if it can do its magic. But, right now my biggest problem is that I can't seem to connect to any WiFi hotspots :(. It just keeps looping between "authenticating" and "obtaining IP" address. I even tried connecting to some other open and known WiFi hotspots and it still won't connect.

I tried resetting my home router and fiddling with security settings, but nothing seems to work. I was on WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES] before and that worked fine after the flash to 4.1.2, but no longer works after factory reset. Also, I tried changing security to just WPA2-PSK and that didn't help at all.

It seems like some other Droid Razr users

are having similar issues.

Any tips? advice or words of wisdom? Hopefully there is a solution out there for my woes! Please help, much appreciated!

Thanks!

Hey guys, I have finally found a work around that seems to be working well for me :D. I had to assign a static IP based on my Droid Razr Maxx's Mac address. I know this is not ideal, but it's something. I hope they fix this problem in the final OTA. Seems to be an issue with the way IP addresses are assigned through DHCP.
