    ICS Root Tool

    After hearing that the ICS OTA is being pushed there will be a lot of people looking to root ICS. I know we have an awesome Droid4 Utility by Jsnweitzel that does everything but these people who are getting the OTA really only want to use the root function. So here is the link to the root tool created by the same gent who made Motofail for gingerbread.

    1. Download the root app here: http://t.co/mbIAmwH8

    2. Make sure you have the latest motorola drivers: USB and PC Charging Drivers - Motorola Mobility, Inc. USA

    3. Connect the phone to the computer using the USB cord.

    4. Unzip razrs_edge_windows.zip

    5. Make sure your phone has USB Debugging on (setting > developer options > USB debugging)

    6. Also make sure you're on MTP mode, not mass storage.

    7. Open the razrs_edge_windows folder, navigate to "run", and press it.

    8. Keep the phone connected to the computer until it's finished. It shouldn't take longer than a couple minutes.


    NOTE: I haven't personally used this tool, so if it went through successfully and you still don't have root then go to the Market and download Superuser and Busybox.


    INSTALLING A ROM

    Now that you're rooted you may want to try installing a ROM. Jsnweitzel will be updating his Droid4 utility which has the option to root and install Safestrap. In the meantime, here are the instructions How-To Safestrap Hash-of-Codes on how to install Safestrap and the download for Safestrap 2.0 http://bit.ly/JDodBs

    The instructions explain what Safestrap is, how to install it, and how to install a ROM. I highly suggest reading it and understanding it. As far as ROMs, Eclipse has been the most stable and is my personal favorite [ROM]{PORT} Eclipse ICS 1.2 If you want to try other ROMs there is CM9 and AOKP which can be found in the ROM thread Droid 4 ROMS Personally, I am waiting for CM10 which is supposed to have Jellybean attributes, but that ROM is still being worked on.

    So will this app/zip root my phone if it is on 6.16.217? Or is it only if you receive the OTA update?
    Thanks for your help!

    217 and the OTA are the same so it will work on both. Generally, any device with ICS can be rooted with this exploit.

    If it doesn't work then it just doesn't work. If you get root then you have root and all functionality, no bugs involved

    ICS Root Utility not working

    [*][*] Motorola Razr ICS Root Exploit (Windows version)[*] by Dan Rosenberg (@djrbliss)[*][*] Before continuing, ensure USB debugging is enabled, that you[*] have the latest Motorola drivers installed, and that your phone[*] is connected via USB.[*][*] Press enter to root your phone...
    Press any key to continue . . .[*][*] Waiting for device...
    * daemon not running. starting it now *
    * daemon started successfully *


    This is as far as mine gets, it sits here for 30 or so minutes before I get iritated and unplug the usb cable. Has anyone who had the OTA upgrade to 4.0.4 yesterday, managed to get this root utility to work?

    This is the same root method in the ICS only tool in my signature and have been using it fine for awhile. You're probably having a driver issue or you're in usb mass storage mode. Be sure you're in MTP mode and if that doesn't work try updating the drivers. I did hear that some users had to download motocast and then new drivers were installed by it.

    Thanks, I added the step saying you have to be in MTP mode.

    It probably work in camera mode too but not the mass storage. Also I uploaded a lite version of the tool.
