    Not-so-rooted RAZR

    Good afternoon,

    This afternoon I downloaded the latest RAZR Utility for JB. I had already done the OTA update to 4.1.2, so I didn't flash it from the utility. I just chose option 3 (root) and then option 4 (safestrapper.) Each operation completed successfully when I ran it, and I didn't get any errors. The problem is, the device doesn't seem to actually be rooted. I downloaded TitaniumBackup and when I open it, I get a message saying the device is not rooted and the app won't work.

    Any ideas what may have gone wrong? I have "superusers" on my apps menu in the phone now, but it has no apps listed in it.

    I have rebooted the phone a few times, but that didn't have any effect.

    To me, the utility names are too similar, there is a RAZR utility, and a RAZR blade rooting tool.
    If you were already on JB I think you wanted the RAZR Blade rooting tool....

    Yeah, I just downloaded RAZR Blade a moment ago. Here's what happened when I ran it:

    Please keep us updated.
    in Maryland and Washington DC, cell phone repair is taking off. It's amazing the number of smartphones with touch screens that get dropped and crack.

    There is no root for 4.1.2...yet. You would have had to have root before upgrading to JB 4.1 2.

    Actually, JP, the Razr_blade exploit DOES work for 4.1.2 (as does the Droid RAZR Utility which uses the same exploit), but DOESN'T work if you've updated the Smart Actions in Jelly Bean BEFORE you run it. So if you HAVE updated Smart Actions, simply "Uninstall update" for Smart Actions, run the exploit, then update Smart Actions again and you're golden.

    Andy, you'll probably need to run the utility to flash it (option 2), then do option 3 and 4. The failure could have come from having already updated Smart Actions (which kills the exploit), or it could have been that you were NOT in MTP or PTP modes in USB, or any number of other failures, but starting fresh with option 2 will resolve all that.

    Actually either will work since the Droid RAZR Utility uses the RAZR_Root exploit for option 4, or in other words, they're one and the same for rooting.

    For all... You must make sure that you are NOT in USB Mass Storage on the phone. In other words, choose either Media device (MTP), or Camera (PTP). For me, I chose MTP and it worked fine.

    This holds true for both Dan Rosenberg's Razr_blade Exploit (razr_blade.zip) and Matt L. Groff's DROID RAZR Utility XT912 Jellybean -- Windows + Mac + Linux (All In One!), option 3. I've edited the OP to include the information above.

    Fox beat me to it, make sure you are in Media mode when connected via USB. I had the same problem.
