    Root is simple on 4.0, but be aware once you root, even if you unroot, they will be able to tell you were once rooted. If that was your concern.

    Your best bet is to just download Matt's 1.10 utility. It has restore 4.0.4 and root all in one place.

    [TOOL] Easy Root Komplete
    My wife's Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX HD currently runs ICS v4.0.4, system 0.7.2.XT926 and has PdaNet/FoxFi working. The only problem left is that the nag screen to upgrade to JB comes up every 12 hours. I think that is too often to prevent an accidental upgrade to 4.1.

    So my goal at this point is to prevent the nag screen from running. Since that requires rooting, I think it would be better for security if I unroot after making that change. If my approach seems reasonable, I have these Questions:

    Q1 - For such a simple goal, should I use the shorter method to root/unroot here?
    [TOOL] ROOT for Razr HD - Verizon XT925/XT926

    Q2 - If I root the phone, what should I change to silence the nag screen.

    Q3 - Is this all reversible at a later time, like if PdaNet overcomes the WiFi or USB or Bluetooth restriction with JB. Or if Verizon comes up with a free plan for users of 5 or less hours/month of tether. etc.

    If I'm not mistaken, the only reason to worry about FoxFi is if you are on the unlimited data plan wherein you are supposed to pay for the ability to use tethering. If you are already on a tiered data plan then tethering is free/included on JB. The only issue is that it will go against the amount of data you're paying for.

    I checked with Verizon and learned that even with JB I can get a free hotspot if I switch our two phones from "unlimited data" to a "share everything" plan.

    With "unlimited data" plan I can buy a hotspot for $1/day in whole-day increments -- switching the service on and off by calling Verizon. That is doable for my occasional usage (2 to 5 days per month) as long as I remember to turn it off when I finish. I am trying it out today and tomorrow.
