I do not wanna brick my phone so i meed reliable instructions. Thanks in advance!

    In the sticky above you will see a thread "RazrUtility" by Matt G, version 1.7. Download the .zip file and extract it to its own folder on our C:\\. Download and install the latest Motorola drivers (I think they are included in the Utility also). Connect your Razr to your computer using the USB/Charge cable that came with the phone. Once connected make sure you have selected USB debugging on your phone and selected a USB connection on your phone to anything other than Mass Storage. Once you've made these settings on your phone start the utility by double clicking the .bat file located in the folder you extracted the zip to. Select Option 3 in the utility and follow the on screen instructions and make sure you wait until the on screen instructions report successful. Unplug your phone and you are rooted.

    You find the utility in this forum, just look a few threads above this one...like I said. If you follow my instructions and the on screen instructions provided in the utility the chances of you bricking your phone are slim to none. Yes, I have the same phone as you and have used this method, without a single problem, several times. If you are uncomfortable rooting your phone then take your time, do some more research and then proceed. The utility I have recommended is the safest, easiest and most used method that I know of.

    When I first used the utility widows automatically found the updated drivers and installed them. To be safe go to the Motorola web site, find your phone and look for the updated drivers...I think their under the customer support tab. Here is the web site:https://motorola-global-portal.custh...p/30,6720,8112

    Ok, so i started rooting my RAZR. I had USB debugging mode on, i was in mtp mode, allowed non market apps to make changes, downloaded the latest drivers...everything i am supposed to. So i started the utility program and started the root, but the program stayed at "waiting for device". I read online that many others were having the same problem.

    hevm786, sorry you're having problems. I just read this on another forum by Matt G (the developer who wrote RazrUtility)... "Motorola Drivers are screwed up. The utility works fine on most computers but Motorola's latest drivers for some reason are not working on some, not an issue with how I made the utility." You my need to wait until a new set of Motorola drivers are released. I am not familiar with another method of rooting the razr at this time.
