    Unfortunately, the binaries and scripts in this package match (file sizes down to the byte are the same for all) the binaries and scripts that I have been using.
    Maybe I should backtrack a bit and give the complete history of the phone:

    I recently bought this unit on eBay. The phone is in great condition and shows no signs of tampering by the previous owner. When I received it, the phone had been factory-reset, so I bypassed the initial screen with the 4-corner-tap method. I then checked 'About Phone' for the software version. I am assuming that the software update to 4.1.2 was OTA (but I have no evidence of this fact).
    The WiFi & Bluetooth both operate normally. I have purchased a SIM card for the phone, but I have not installed it as yet, since I wanted to get the device rooted and personalized before I tried to activate it on my plan.

    Next I began the research for D4 rooting with JB 4.1.2 and settled on the 'DROID_4_Utility_Jellybean_XT894_WinMacLin' by mattlgroff. After verifying that the rooting portion was the same code (& credit given) as Mr. Rosenberg, I executed the batch file. After it ran to completion, I used RootChecker to verify root access & found it was not rooted.

    Next I altered the batch file to remove the redirects to 'dev/null' so I could follow the progress of the steps, which is when I discovered that it was failing access to the '/data' folder.

    And so here we are.. stumped!
