Has any with a rooted XT926 successfully used Root Keeper and flashed the latest 9.16.6 update from Motorola and then restored root? The update file is available but I'm holding off flashing until I'm sure I won't have to go through the whole process of going back to 4.0.4 if root is lost.

You can use Voodoo PTA root keeper to safe and then restore root. People have been successful doing this. If for some reason it does not work you will not ba able to root til there is a new method. Going back to ICS will not be possible any more.

I've used Root Keeper successfully on two different Razr HDs now going from 4.0.4 to 4.1.1 and even gone back from 4.1.1 to ICS. The question is can I use it to keep root going from 4.1.1->4.1.2 and if needed can I still restore to ICS from 4.1.2?

I used voodoo successfully as well on my HD, although unnecessary since I have a dev edition. Just did it for practice when we finally get our update on the Bionic.....

Basically this. However, I highly suggest doing your root during ICS and restoring it once you hit JB 4.1.1 to test and make sure it works properly. If for some reason your OTA rootkeeper isn't protecting it properly you won't be able to roll back from 4.1.2 to try again.

What we need is for someone who does update and lost root to try Dan's Atrix HD root process for Android 4.1.2. Says in his OP " This should also work on other Motorola 4.1.2 builds (Razr/Razr Maxx, Razr HD, Razr M, etc.)." Mind you not a simple root process tho and does require Linux

I also updated, Temp Unrooted with OTA Rootkeeper first, then updated and restored root... It seems that theres no way to go back to ICS now, but not sure why if it was possible from 4.1.1? Im going to try to sbf or use the razr hd utility as soon as my phone charges to 100%.

I have to ask, this may seem silly, but of those of you that are ROOTED and have updated to 4.1.2, who has taken the update via OTA and who has taken the update via the Droid Life links?

Also, with taking this update what error messages are being received? How many attempts to retry this update have some taken?

Sure.
My phone(Razr HD XT926 Verizon US Non dev.) was on 4.1.1 rooted and I took the ota by going to my stock rom slot and using OTA root keeper temp unrooted. Accepted the update then restored root afterwards. SS 3.12 was not working though, so I had to uninstall and reinstall it. Was running it all day then decided to try using the RazrHD utitlity 1.10 to restore back to stock ICS 4.0.4. Did step one and it worked. Rerooted now, and currently DL JB leak OTA to go back to 4.1.1 . I had some problems with switching from Mobile data to wifi on 4.1.2 ..

Well I went ahead and did the temp-unroot and when I tried to apply the update it failed the apply_patch_check on GmsCore.apk and the install aborted.

GmsCore is the google play services and I've never done anything to that. Anyone have any thoughts?

Were you on stock slot, did you have any other ROM slots made?
All I did was activate my stock slot, deleted any other ROM slots and restored a backup of stock jb 4.1.1 I made a week ago with all apps installed/updated. Booted up and temp unrooted, accepted the update and it worked.
Not sure what's going on but if you still have a problem and want to try this update it may be easier and/or faster just to start fresh by using the razrhd utility and growing back to ICS and re root and update...
