I'll keep it brief for you guys.
So.. I've had a RAZR since 11/10/11. Pre-order. Love it. Love ICS. First Android phone. First post on these boards, too.
Finally got a navigation dock for my phone today. Love it. Hate that VZW Navigator launches when I plug it in. Contemplate rooting. Am completely ignorant of rooting a phone.
Google. Find this.
How to Root Droid Razr on ICS! [Windows/Mac/Linux] | DroidRazrRoot.comURL looks only a LITTLE fishy, /sarcasm. Site is overwhelmed with ads and fake download links. But, instructions are simple.
Go back to Google. Find droidforums.net. See RAZR section, see How to root. Am confused. Contemplating poorly written site root. Not sure what to do. Just want to get rid of the crap-ware on my phone, but also concerned what/if I will lose anything on the device (ignorant of rooting part) - contacts, applications, etc, by doing so.
Shady site looks almost to good to be true. Probably is since all I have to do is UNROOT - and what does that entail, exactly? Just removes root access? Factory resets my phone?
Please help. I want to learn.
