[QUOTE=TisMyDroid;2356652]Hi GotnFX. Thank you! Hope your Christmas was wonderful also. I can only answer half your questions (but Matty's got you covered on the rest). Yes, I have flashed back to .211 many times and is a breeze but haven't done the leak yet. My son has inherited my Maxx (he's one happy young man) and I will probably wait for the official OTA JB before I install JB (only because I can't get my hands on the phone enough to do both).
Hi 'Tis Merry Christmas!
Boy! Was I surprised to learn that JB was "somehow" released. Was wondering if I need to do anything special because I previously installed .215 leak on my Droid Razr. Do u think I should wait for official update? If so, do I need to prep my phone and remove the .215 leak? If so, can u advise wehere instructions for .215 are available (if necessary). Many thanks, as always.
Read all the prior posts and it seems that .215 devices need to go back to .211
Matty tried it and it works. I'm gonna wait for Tis mY Droid because I have had lucks following those posts and instructions:-)
Guess I'm a bit of a chicken......LOL Hope all enjoyed a great Xmas!
Pls post all results!~
I am going to wait for the official OTA because I think it is right around the corner. I don't know how many times I went with a leak that was expected to be the OTA, only for the OTA to change. And because I always do an fdr with any os change, it is more work (for me) than just installing the leak or OTA.
The following steps to get back to stock are very easy and fast, so you can do it now and wait for the OTA or go with the leak... or you can wait for the OTA and return to stock, then OTA in one quick swoop.
Going back to stock .211:
*On your pc, download and install Matt's Razr Utility 1.8 or 1.81 or 1.82. You can find 1.82 here:
Droid Razr Utility 1.82 [Windows] For Verizon Droid Razr And Droid Razr Maxx Only - DroidRzr.com
*Extract that utility to its own folder on your computer...you must extract the file on your pc. It will not work from your phone.
*After the utility is extracted, go to the Motorola drivers folder in the utility and make sure you have the latest Motorola drivers installed on your pc.
*make sure your phone is set to usb debugging mode (menu>system setting>developer options).
*Power your phone off. Then power your phone on while holding down your power, the volume up and volume down buttons simultaneously.
*Connect your phone to your computer with the factory supplied usb cable.
*On your phone select AP Fastboot, then in the utility select option 1..."restore phone to stock .211. Do not unplug the usb cable until the utility finishes.
*When completed your phone should reboot to stock .211.
*After running option 1, restart phone to make sure all is fine.

Ok, am I correct in assuming that once I switch over to jelly bean all my roms I'm using now will be rendered useless? I think I'll wait as well
Yes I have root on it, but it's not like any other root exploit I have seen. You actually have to make sure ICS is rooted BEFORE installing the update, and you have to protect root and temp unroot with VooDoo Rootkeeper TWICE, and leave it rooted when you install the update. Yes, it "breaks" root when you install it, but then you go into VooDoo and restore root, then reboot and it's rooted. Kinda odd, but it works. I also have root on my tablet, and it's running Jelly Bean too. I likes my root LOL
And the Hotspot app hack still works ... that was my main concern and that was the FIRST thing I did after getting root on my phone :D
On silly question: If I leave the .215 leak on my phone, and the OTA should be pushed, will I have issues, or will the JB OTA just fail to load? Hesitant to pull the 215 leak because phone is working so well, as is battery. Just a bit weary if I miss chatter about JB OTA. Been away from PC for a while because of Xmas and all that goes with it!
Now getting ready for 2013! Hey! We all made it!
