    Lightbulb [HOW TO] Root your Motorola Droid RAZR [Windows Only]












    DISCLAIMER: Droid Forums or myself will not be responsible if you happen to brick your device during this root process. Please proceed at your own risk.


    Step 1: Download and install Motorola Drivers for your Windows PC (this doesn’t work on other operating systems): 32-bit or 64-bit.

    Step 2:
    Download DooMLoRD_v2_ROOT-zergRush-busybox-su.zip and extract contents to your PC (desktop would be a good place).

    Step 3: From your Droid RAZR’s homescreen, tap Menu button and enable USB Debugging from Settings > Applications > Development.

    Step 4: Connect your Droid RAZR with your PC and select Charge Only option from notifications drawer.

    Step 5: Navigate to where the folder you unzipped in Step 2 to and open the folder and click on the runme.bat file and let it do its thing.


    If you followed the steps correctly, your Droid RAZR should now be rooted on Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread.


    Thanks to Pieman13 for the find!

    Excellent!

    Remember all, there is no recourse as of this date! No SBF or FXZ file to recover your phone should it soft brick.

    Please wait to get too involved if you aren't experienced in root!!

    Sent from my XT862, while on the move.

    I can confirm this method works for the VZW RAZR 2.3.5.

    Has anyone tried wireless tethering with this root method?

    Is this a once and done root, or is it something you have to do every time the phone boots?

    Picking up my Razr in a little while and want to make sure I understand this correctly before I hose anything.

    Not trying to be a d...k but I wish people posting rooting methods would put "For Windows", "For OSX", "One-Click", "For Linux" in the thread title.

    Please????

    Well, to be fair, if you looked at the files and saw .bat and .dll and .exe files I would assume that it is for Windows... ;-)

    I realize that... but when you are looking for a root method that isnt done via windows, its a little bit of a pain having to open every thread titled - How to Root Your Phone - and find out it doesnt work for you. Its the same at AC, XDA and here.

    Oh well.
