    Question Help rooting Droid Razr 4.1.2?

    I have recently decided that I am fed up with al of the bloatware and need to get rid of it however I did just receive the Jellybean update a day or so ago and I have not found any guides on how to root while being on 4.1.2. Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks in advance!

    I'm sure someone will come up with a root method before to long. I believe as of now the only way to get rooted is to temporally unroot while still on ics, and restore it after the update. Unfortunately for you that ship has sailed.

    I tried the ota rootkeeper but it didn't work for me. I ended up having to root it via adb. All is well now cept for some reason I cannot get USB tethering to work now, just wifi which is a billion times slower, uses more battery, and creates more heat.

    When you say you rooted with ADB, do you mean you rooted ICS, or Jelly Bean???

    Jelly Bean. ota rootkeeper kept saying there was no protected backup so I pushed a su and a superuser.apk and it gave me root.

    So getting root on my razr maxx after the OTA jellybean update is possible? Where can I find instructions on how to do this? :-D Really want my FoxFi back for my nexus 7.

    Please expound upon this!! When you say you pushed it, you simply used ADB commands from a terminal, or did you use a self-created BAT file? Where did you push SU and superuser.apk to (i.e. what folder(s))? In other words, can you list the steps and commands with full syntax? I, for one, would very much like to know, as I did botch my upgrade and don't have root. Also, I'm sure there are others in a similar predicament.

    Yes, Josh, interesting is perhaps a bit tame, I'd sooner go with exciting, promising, thrilling, oh, I don't know...maybe even exhilarating!
