    If you're replying to me, nope, not this exact thread, but between the .215 classroom thread and another one in this forum. Shoot, the other was the one where Foxcat (I think) mentioned doing the root/unroot/save thing multiple times with Voodoo before proceeding with the jellybean install? Yeah, like I said I'm lame with Android.

    well i was just screwing around last night trying to fix my phone which was "half" rooted, as i forgot to update the binaries.

    i downloaded this restore root for jelly bean program. i plugged my phone in, clicked the batch file, it started automatically. The program rebooted my phone once and presto it was fixed. It may be just more dumb luck than anything else. but oh well!

    That's odd that nothing is consistent. Glad you have root though.

    Any luck last night?

    So here's my process, I can gain SU, I picked apart Matt's FixRoot batch file and used the commands one at a time to see what works, here's what I have so far:
    Code:
    adb kill-server > nul
    adb start-server > nul
    ping 1.1.1.1 -n 1 -w 500 > nul
    adb wait-for-device devices > nul
    adb shell "/system/usr/we-need-root/su-backup -c 'mount -o rw,remount -t ext4 /dev/block/system /system'" > nul
    adb shell "/system/usr/we-need-root/su-backup -c 'cp /system/usr/we-need-root/su-backup /system/bin/su'" > nul
    adb shell "/system/usr/we-need-root/su-backup -c 'chmod 6755 /system/bin/su'" > nul
    adb shell "/system/usr/we-need-root/su-backup -c 'rm /system/usr/we-need-root/su-backup'" > nul
    adb shell "su -c 'mount -o rw,remount -t ext4 /dev/block/system /system'"
    At this point in the batch file it calls for
    Code:
    adb push su /sdcard/su
    I still get a device offline error. If I "adb shell" I can run SU and get #root privileges but still can't get the device to be "online". Bit out of my depth at this point.

    His batch goes beyond what I did including different file system it appears. If you get root privilege you should be able to remount system as read write though.

    Push works outside of adb shell though. At least did for myself and foxkat. Device offline is within adb shell

    Re: Help rooting Droid Razr 4.1.2?

    Not sure how to remount as RW. Something I just noticed, my /sdcard/ and /sdcard-ext/ are empty when connected. Thinking it has something to do with being connected as mass storage. Does it need to be in a different mode?

    Pushing SU outside of shell gets me a permission denied error.

    Here's what I have on the phone now. SU binary is 3.0.3.2, updating it now.Fails to gain root.


    Did these commands
    Code:
    adb shell "su -c 'cp /system/bin/su /system/xbin/su'"
    adb shell "su -c 'chmod 6755 /system/xbin/su'"
    adb shell "su -c 'chmod 644 /system/app/Superuser.apk'"
    Didn't help any, at this point I'm just punching in commands blindly. I sort of understand what the above commands will do. The next command in that utility calls for SU to be deleted out of /system/bin, thought that was odd. If I reboot and do a SU ID command it returns with a 0 but I still can't update my SU binary or any other actual root commands.

    Going to lunch, I'll think more after I eat something.

    Yeah I don't think you want mass storage mode. You should be able to push to SD card, not to system. One in adb shell, mount as read write with commands in this thread then cp from sdcard to system areas.

    Got it. Turns out you can't be in Mass Storage mode when running the root fixer. http://www.batakang.com/ftp/DROID_RAZR/RestoreRoot.zip

    Switched to MTP and ran FixRoot, problem solved!

    Another question though, it installed SuperSU 0.99 instead of 3.1.1 regular SU. Should I keep SuperSU or the regular one? I'm not even sure about the difference.

    entitlement_check for hotspot is value 66 now.

    Not 66 on mine. And yes mass storage disconnects storage from phone while connected. Used to be a dual mount app awhile back. Not sure if it still works.

    As far as su, unless something isn't working correctly, don't really need to change.
