    Credit to Dan Rosenberg for his work on this exploit. Link is here - Security Research by Dan Rosenberg

    It has been reported to successfully work on the Droid Razr running the .173 build...this should work for those of you who want root after the update or if VooDoo didn't protect / restore root.

    Standard Disclaimer - DroidForums.net, Dan Rosenberg or anyone else is responsible if this does not root your device or bricks your device. You are proceeding at your own risk.

    Nice find! I'll add it to my repertoire of suggestions. Thanks! P.S. I'll make sure to give you credit for the find! ;-)

    This does work on Droid Razr. First rooted yesterday with Doomlord V2, did upgrade without thinking, killed the root. Try other root versions, nothing. Saw this, tried it, works great and is easy. Thanks, Thought I was lost.:icon_ lala:

    I figured that Dan was the Dev, but you are still the one that brought it to us here, that's why I said "find". ;)

    I just got my Razr a few days ago. The update was done at the time I purchased phone. I used this to root my phone and it worked, as far as I can tell. I am able to run titanium backup. But the problem I am having is I cannot use Mobile Hotspot. I am able to get it to my laptop to sign on but it says no internet connection or limited use (the yellow sign with ! on it). Does anyone have a solution for this? I tried 3 different laptops and the same problem.

    I rooted last night and since then I have not data I have a red circle with a line through it over my data bars. I can't do anything right now, no phone calls or data. Anyone seen this before? Any help would be great.

    Edit: I did a factory reset and that didn't fix the problem. I called Verizon and they said that when you do a factory reset you have to remove the sim card other wise it will be erased. So now I have to head to the Verizon store to replace my sim card. It doesn't answer why my phone wouldn't connect before I reset but I hope that fixes it.
