I'm going to go ahead and say ahead of time that I must be an idiot. Although I've never rooted a cell phone, I'm usually pretty good at following directions. I've tried to root my Razr Maxx for the last two days and I've carefully followed each step but when the program runs all I get is that it can't write files and that access is denied and it reboots a few times and I notice the same failed statements that scroll in the program. I've even tried 2 different programs that I think are for my phone. I know that i've followed each step but I must be missing something. I've even tried using different USB ports on my laptop. I've also googled to see if I can find someone with an answer but so far I've seen nothing and it hasn't messed up my phone in any way. If anyone has an idea what I'm missing I'd appreciate the help.
Thanks for the response, and the last software I tried was the one mentioned earlier in this thread (1.82). The system version of my phone is 77.111.10xt907.Verizon.en.US and it says my android is 4.0.4. The 4.0.4 android version is what made me think this would work. I never noticed any info on the different system versions but it would make sense to why I've had so much trouble with my phone.
Hey Guys, great work. Much appreciated.
I am a new owner of an unlocked Verizon Motorola Razr Maxx with ICS 4.0.4. I am using the Reliance CDMA network in India. I am able to make and receive calls and send text messages. The phone is acting very weirdly on me.
Once i put the Reliance CDMA sim and power up the phone, the welcome screen appears. Once i select 'English' as the language and click on 'Start', it gives me a message saying that ' Please wait, this may take a few minutes'. After a couple of minutes, I am getting the following message 'A SIM card is needed to operate this phone. Please turn off your phone and insert your SIM card'. I can access the settings and play around with few of them. I have tried many combinations, but of no use.
When i go to About Phone > Status. Under 'Network type and Strength' following are the stats
Service state --> In Service
Roaming --> Not Roaming
Mobile Network State --> Disconnected
My Phone Number --> (empty)
MIN --> Unknown
PRL Version --> Unknown
ERI Version --> Unknown
ICCID --> Unknown
IP Address --> Unavailable
It does not allow me to use apps or play games or do anything fun on my handset. The network signal indicates full signal reception, i am able to make calls and receive calls and send text message only.
How can i get it to start working like a normal ICS smartphone and enjoy the rich multimedia experience ? Kindly help me. Thanks in advance
