After an unfortunately failed experiment at releasing the Droid root exploit after raising money to buy himself a Droid 4 and $300 to charity, the creator of the exploit, Dan Rosenberg has released his root which works on 2.3.6 entitled "Motofail"

You can download it from the link above and it should be able to root 6.12.173 on Droid RAZR directly without having to OTA rootkeeper 748 and upgrade.

Enjoy~~

And please consider donating to his fund which is still at the link. It all goes to the Red Cross now.

Yeah I read this yesterday, this exploit apparantly works with ALL Motorola phones.

Dan Rosenberg is a genious, I have been following him for awhile now. I highly recommend reading his blogs, they're so interesting. Almost like a murder-mystery haha.

:-D :-D

New member to this site, and very impressed. Just got my Razr yesterday, ran the update, and decided to root. So glad this was released the same day. Worked great! Thanks much.

I agree. He also has a good read on Plagiarized Exploits:

As Matt said anyone who wants to show their appreciation can click on the link in the OP and donate what they can. It goes to charity but maybe we can still gather enough to help Dan get that Droid 4. He's certainly earned it. ;)

I hear ya! I have used ss a bunch so I had to go do the whole process as well. Ah well, on the bright side it was kind of fun, and in the event something like this happens again we will be familiar with the process. Worth it to try something I hadn't done before :D

I am working on a lot more features in my next utility release for Droid RAZR. Need to get permissions from certain developers to implement their work first.

I think we need to pay this guy to unlock the Moto Bootloader. Some one should contact him and we should start a fund for that!

My wireless tethering isnt working... Anyone having this problem? Ive tried using barnacle and open garden. They run, although barnacle comes up with an error, and they show up as avaliable connections on my laptop but my laptop never truly connects, only shows that its attempting to connect.

I had this same issue when i rooted with the old zergrush method. To fix download sqlite editor from the market and navigate to the settings database and change line 150 from a 1 to a 0

Did you use the built in wireless tether app?? Thats what you use instead of a maket app.

The mobile Hotspot that is built in on your phone. I run it all the time. I even unrooted and it still works fine.
