great, post back here if rooting worked or not
Successfully rooted. I'm going to try to figure out how to get this back to ICS now.
Root won't give you a way back to ICS.
closest you can get is a ics rom with kexec.
Right, but I still needed to get the drivers installed to root ICS, too, and I decided to go back after starting this anyway.
Whatchu talkin' 'bout "closest I can get?"
you can not go back to ICS from jellybean, it will not work
rooting has nothing to do with that
I understand rooting has nothing to do with going from jb to ics.
How can I install other roms, but not install ICS?
rom has to be compatible with the Kernel, only way around the jellybean kernel is a kexec rom
If your Droid 4 is on JB 4.1.2 you cannot go back to ICS. Root isn't going to give you the ability to do that.
Fastboot, RSDLite, whatever....you can't go back to ICS.
It's as simple as that. The locked bootloader does not allow it to be flashed backwards to earlier versions.
And there's no way to go back to the older kernel? Sorry, I don't know much about this. Thought these things were supposed to be pretty much open technology.
Edit: Well this sucks.
One reason I want to go back is I want to be able to toggle between 3g/4g, and from what I've been reading, JB disables that ability on the D4. Would an ICS rom give me back that and other functionality?
Edit: This is depressing. I just got this phone and I'm already regretting it.
Is it expected that Motorola will allow the Droid 4 bootloader to be unlocked in the near future?
there is almost no chance that the bootloader will get unlocked
