    DROID RAZR root?

    So I have been considering rooting my DROID RAZR, but I'm not sure if this would be the best thing to do or if the benefits would outweigh the consequences. Could someone please give me some insight and show me a good place to learn how to do it properly? I certainly don't want a brick. Thanks

    Hello and welcome!

    Rooting is gaining complete control of your phone - consider this analogy...it is like being the admin of a computer instead of a guest account user. Rooting allows you to see, access and modify all files including those in the system folder. Rooting itself won't change how your phone runs or looks, it is what you do afterward that will do that...Rooting does void your warranty with most manufacturer's.

    Here are a couple of links for ya...

    What is Root... http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...op-asking.html
    Root Method for most recent OS version 2.3.6... 2.3.6 Now has a root method!

    Definitely read up, feel comfortable, ask questions and we will be happy to help if we can!

    As long as you don't delete or remove any system apps or mod the os.

    Instead of deleting for instance, Verizon bloatware, you can freeze via tibu or simply rename the app with .bak added to the end. This allows to to unfreeze or rename these apps when OTA updates arrive.

    Look around in the Razr MAXX forums for more details ..
