Ok guys here's where I am so far. I got ICS up and running. Then I tried to run the razrsedge root. It got to "daemon started successfully" and never progressed passed that point. I tried again. Now it will get to "Waiting on device" and no further.
I have also tried to load the flashable zip for Google Now, but now I cannot boot into recovery to attempt it. I get to the menu and select "recovery" Next I see a poor dead droid with an exclamation coming out if his chest. At this point I can only remove the battery and reboot.
Any advice on how to fix any of these problems? I am very new to all this customizing. I just started last night.
