This will NOT work on the XT-910!!! Please use the other method. Note: will need to be done in Linux
So our fearless root master, Dan Rosenberg (), has successfully achieved root for the JB OTA and it's here first on DR.com! This root exploit is applicable to the RAZR and RAZR MAXX (XT912).
This means all of you who lost root through the OTA update will now be able to root your devices once again.
A huge thanks to Mr. Rosenberg for all his hard work and dedication! He is the first one to achieve root so, as promised, the bounty is his.
to the Root Exploit Release and Discussion thread.
Here's the link to the actual root files:
-Download the zip file and extract.
-Connect device via USB (Make sure you have the current Moto drivers FIRST!)
-Make sure USB Debug is on
-Make sure you have Smart Actions fully installed, unfrozen and unmodified
-Make sure the phone IS NOT in mass storage mode
-Double click run.bat
-Open terminal and cd into the folder
