I apologize about having to go through that, but it was not a result of the coding of my batch file, it was because of your Windows installation's settings.
    You don't need to apologize. If it's a quirk in my Windows installation as your research apparently proves then it's something that I have to work through myself.

    Was it a 10 character minimum? I thought it was a 10K minimum. I am sorry for the rant.

    I used it too and it was successful in fastbooting my RAZR. I had fastbooted to 744 before, and then OTA'd to 748 and then to 173. When I did it the old fashioned way, all apps and settings remained. Unfortunately I missed the line that warned the internal SD Card would be formatted in the rootkit. Since I had fastbooted before I expected nothing different. Obviously my oversight.

    Hi there!

    I used to root my OG Droid, but can't call myself an expert as mod things from OEM still gives me chill of ruining things. I have few questions before I jump into things. Thanks in advance!
    1. Is this program with all of the steps to root Razr all be done while razr connected to PC? So phone will need be in charge only mode and debugging mode enabled?

    2. What is fastboot? is this a step for when something going wrong in the rooting process? (through self-experiment this is the same as entering recovery mode )

    3. What's the difference between bootstrap and safestrap (Why is this one for expert?)

    4. I have a brand new Maxx with 2.3.5 and sys version .748 . The system updates keep on screaming at me to install OTA .173. What should I do here? Should I install offical OTA updates first then do the following steps #5 backup into bootstrap, #15 Wipe dalvik cache, #2 Root .173(2.3.6) , #4 Voodoo rootkeeper, and then do #17 reboot phone?

    5. Once I plug the phone to USB I just go ahead use the program and it will automatically configure the phone or I must go to recovery mode first (power+vol down), then I connect the phone to PC?

    6. Lastly, how to get into AP fastboot mode? (I got this from self-experiment ) but why it says device locked status 0 mean?

    1. Is this program with all of the steps to root Razr all be done while razr connected to PC? So phone will need be in charge only mode and debugging mode enabled?

    All must be connected to PC. Charge only mode and debugging enabled for most, but not for the fastboot commands. (Read the numbered list of functions in the OP to see which those are)

    2. What is fastboot? is this a step for when something going wrong in the rooting process? (through self-experiment this is the same as entering recovery mode )

    OG Droid had SBF files, LTE Droid phones has Fastboot files. If you ever screw up your phone badly you fix yourself with these.

    3. What's the difference between bootstrap and safestrap (Why is this one for expert?)SafeStrap is for more experienced users. It has 2 systems and is meant for testing unstable Roms. It ruins the /preinstall/ folder when you use it.Bootstrap is 1 system and lets you boot into CWM.

    4. I have a brand new Maxx with 2.3.5 and sys version .748 . The system updates keep on screaming at me to install OTA .173. What should I do here? Should I install offical OTA updates first then do the following steps #5 backup into bootstrap, #15 Wipe dalvik cache, #2 Root .173(2.3.6) , #4 Voodoo rootkeeper, and then do #17 reboot phone?


    Install the official OTA. THEN root. and do whatever you want. You never have to do #17 I just do it when I don't want to manually do it.

    5. Once I plug the phone to USB I just go ahead use the program and it will automatically configure the phone or I must go to recovery mode first (power+vol down), then I connect the phone to PC?

    You plug it in and have USB Debugging enabled. (Settings>Applications>Development>USB Debugging)

    6. Lastly, how to get into AP fastboot mode? (I got this from self-experiment ) but why it says device locked status 0 mean?Status 1 is unlocked bootloader. Status 0 is locked.Turn off phoneTurn it on by holding down both volume buttons and the power button.Move down the the volume down key and select with the volume up key, AP FASTBOOT.
    I hope that answers them all.

    Amazing Responses m8... thanks a million! So much better and simpler that I don't need to do backup, wipe dalvik cache, nor install voodoo rootkeeper anymore.

    I appreciate the patch to allow fastbooting without erasing the internal SD Card. I haven't installed it yet but hope it gives you the option to erase if you still do desire.
