    Appoligies in advance if as I suspect this question has been asked and answered. I came out of my rooted original Razr when it died I got upgrade via warranty (with some fancy explaining) to the Maxx HD which I egerly excepted. However I had not researched the phone as I would normally have (I figured if its free its for me! I am sure I can root it). From what I read on this forum and other sites online I cannot obtain root on my device unless this device once had root and only lost it via OTA update. Sadly this phone was never rooted so before I abandon all hope, I will ask you "The Driod Collective" LOL What say you! can I obtain root by ANY means with my current configuration? Maxx HD 9.20.1 XT926 JB 4.1.2

    Thanks in advance.:question:

    I'm about to send my phone back to Big Red and was wondering the same thing. I'm pretty there will be a root method soon. If there isn't any at the moment.

    I really think this belongs under hacking but...hey what do I know LOL. I am guessing that the short answer is no this cannot be done as of yet since I have not seen anything. I will keep checking back maybe someone can crack it soon. Thanks.

    We decided to move the thread to support because the development/hacking section is meant as an area for developers or contributors to post their work. Questions should stay in the support section. ;)

    And to answer your question, sorry the answer is no. If the bootloader is locked, and you are already on the latest OTA, there is no root unless the link above is updated or works.

    The link the bweN diorD provided you with is the answer. I can help you get your Root back here is where you need to start.

    Begin by downloading SamuraiHL's Downgrade.

    1) To install this you will need RSD Lite, I have the latest version which is 6.1.5 (there is an MTK Patch, but this is a file that is not needed). If you have RSD Lite version 6.1.4 and up you are fine, otherwise download RSD Lite 6.1.5 here.
    2) With RSD Lite downloaded go ahead and install it to your computer, which I should mention the RSD version I have is for Windows only. In addition you will need the latest version of Device Manager on your computer. With both RSD Lite and Device Manager installed. Go ahead and open RSD Lite.
    3) Pick up your XT926 Droid Razr/Maxx HD and go into Settings> Developer options> USB Debugging and make sure that the check box is checked.
    4) Go ahead and put your XT926 Droid Razr/Maxx HD into AP Fastboot> Reboot device by holding Power + Volume (-) down, once screen is black or blank> hold Power + Volume (+) up, press the Volume (-) down button to AP Fastboot mode, then press Volume (+) up.
    5) Connect the device to USB.
    6) Go into RSD Lite make sure device appears and click to open the file, find the SamuriHL_Downgrade-RAZR_HD.html click to open it and go ahead start compressing and install.
    7) This will Revert you back to 4.1.2 System version 9.16.6.
    8) Download Motochopper, from my link here, follow instructions as I have displayed in thread.
    9) Optional/But recommended Unlock Bootloader with Motopocalypse (this is the last chance to Unlock Bootloader, as a new Unlock is not being explored.)
    10) Next go into Settings> About phone> Update, and download only the OTA.
    11) Install RootKeeper OTA on your device, here is the link if you do not have it.
    12) Go into RootKeeper OTA, select First> Temp. un-root (keeps backup) [this will disable Root hiding a restorable copy of Root.]
    13} Go ahead and accept the Install of the OTA.
    14) After OTA has installed, device has rebooted, go into Settings> About phone make sure that the System version is 9.18.79/9.20.1 and the new Baseband ends in 15P.
    15) Go into OTA RootKeeper and select Restore root. Enjoy!

    So I was able to root successfully but not unlock the BL.
    1) Downgraded to 9.16.6 using RSD Lite 6.1.5 and SamuriHL_Downgrade.xml
    2) Rooted with Motochopper v1.0 (No data lost!)
    3) Verified root with Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper v2.0.3
    4) Attempted to unlock BL with Motopocalypse v1.0 but got this error: TrustZone write failed: -11 and in other instances got this in fastboot: failed to hab check for recovery: 0x56

    After reading up on this over the last several days, it looks like I just missed the opportunity window to unlock BL due to the TZ (trusted zone) patch in this recent 9.20.1 OTA update. Have you seen any confirmed cases of unlocking using your method?
