    I had a same problem. I had to factory reset under Privacy because after ota to ics my phone wasn't running stable. After factory reset I lost root. After few hours of trial and error and now I got it back.

    1. Downloaded Matt's Failproof RazrUtility 1.7
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...-droid-razr-utility-1-7-failsafe-edition.html

    2. Unzipped all files.

    3. Downloaded new window driver and install them automatically.
    http://www.motorola.com/Support/US-...tware_and_Drivers/USB-and-PC-Charging-Drivers

    4. Connected to usb and left it at Mass Storage as it is.

    5. Click on RunMe.bat from unzipped utility 1.7

    6. Click on #3 for rooting ICS 4.0.4

    7. Followed the computer screen and razr is rooted.

    I was stuck on ADB.....thing but it was smooth sailing after I updated my window driver from Motorola site. Hope I did something good.

    Motocast should/will have no impact on the root process.

    Yes. I was in the same situation but I guess you need to update your window driver for the ICS. After I update my window driver I was able to connect the phone on those 3 options. For rooting, I left it at as Mass Storage.

    COuld the problem be, because I had a Bionic and some drivers for that could be interfearing with the drivers for the Razr?

    I would remove all Motorola drivers and then install just the ones that are in the RAZR utility folder.

    root for ics 4.0.4

    I've tried everything listed and still can't get the program to recognize the phone, i've deleted drivers and reinstalled and everything, please I need some help, not familiar enough to do the manual root, all phone settings are what is stated as needed, all ducks are in a row, just once it says waiting for device that is the end, it's sat as long as 2 hours

    this is on a razr running 4.0.4

    I am not sure I just double checked it on my phone and it worked with no problem.

    I unrooted with the 1.61 utility with my phone connected and on USB mass storage mode with USB debugging on and install from unknown sources checked.

    I then connected my phone and changed it to MTP mode then launched the 1.71 utility, did option 3 and it did its thing rebooted and I was rooted.

    So either USB option should work just fine and as long as you have the drivers installed you should be fine. When you choose your USB mode does your computer say "Your device is ready to use"? If not then you have the wrong drivers or don't have them installed correctly.

    I know this sounds to simple to have an impact, but are you using the USB/charging cable that came with your Razr. If not that could very well be your problem. Not all USB cables are made the same and one that worked on your old phone may not work on your Razr.
