    Couple of questions: What method are you using to root, are you using the usb cable that came with your phone and do you have voodoo root keeper installed?

    Having same issue. I rooted using utility in the sticky, also installed voodoos rootkeeper. All was flawless till the ota update installed. Tried using rootkeeper...no go....tried unrooting.....no go.....tried rerooting.....no go. Not sure what direction to take next.

    I'm not sure what to tell you because I don't use root keeper. With the utility it so easy to go back to stock, update and then root (for now anyway). I think I read a similar thread over in the Razr Hacks section regarding root keeper. You may want to go there to see if you can find an answer or maybe someone more familiar with root keeper will chime in here and help you guys out. As a last resort you can use the utility to return to stock .173, take the OTA update again and then root. The utility will root .181.

    Well, can't explain why but after trying to reroot half a dozen times or more this afternoon I gave up and went fishing for a few hours. Came back, hooked up the usb cable to go ahead and restore back to factory because I knew that would work, but instead I tried the utility again to reroot and IT WORKED! Can't tell you why it did it, but it did and wifi is working fine again.

    I am having the same issue. I was not using root keeper, and my first root was Motofail. I got the OTA and updated, and lost root. However, I still have superuser. I cannot uninstall superuser, but I also do not have root access and Superuser is not being granted permissions. I tried rerooting with Utility, Motofail, and another one that I cannot remember the name of. Nothing worked. I then factory reset, and still ended up having Superuser, but no root. I tried rerooting with Utility, and still nothing. Help?

    Well, I don't know what's causing your problem but if I were you this is what I'd do...Use Matt G's RazrUtility found in the first sticky above...download it to my computer...extract it to a folder on my hard drive...select the .bat file, connect my phone and execute option 1 in the utility. That will take your phone back to stock .173. From there you can get the OTA to .181 from Verizon and then root again using the utility.
