    Overclock install not working? I ran it and it just starts Daemon and stops... let it sit for 5 min with nothing...

    I installed Eclipse ROM, could this be the problem? Are these files only meant for the stock ROM?

    I'm completely new to rooting, and i was just wanting to double check before i use this utility on my phone because i dont want to brick it.
    But my phone is a Droid Razr version 2.3.6, system version 6.12.181.xt912.verizon.en.us..... will this work??

    Yes it will work exceptionally well. This utility is probably (most likely) the best utility for users who are not "root/MOD" experts...in my opinion it is a must for any user who has limited experience rooting or flashing ROMs. When you download the utility to your computer, extract the zip to its own folder on your c:// drive. Do not try to run the .bat file from within the zip folder...it usually won't run correctly. Once you have the utility running just follow the on screen instructions. There are options in the utility for Gingerbread .181 (you) users and users who have installed a leaked version of ICS. So, just make sure you are selecting an option designated for your phone (.181). If you use the utility to root you can also use the utility to unroot. Also, if you are feeling brave and want to try one of the leaked ICS builds stay away 6.14.84, .85 and .206. The leaks that are safe to install on your razr are .75 and .79. If you install .75 or .79 then you can use the utility to return to stock .181 which you are on now. Have fun...read all instructions and OP notes before you do anything.

    Also make sure you have the Motorola drivers installed on your computer. That part should be in the instructions anyway. Just trying to help you cover all the bases.

    Voodoo has worked for most people installing one of the ICS leaks...no one knows for sure if it will work with the OTA ICS when it gets pushed...I guess we'll find out. You will still have to unfreeze any apps you've frozen, replace any system apps you've deleted/moved or renamed and temporarily unroot to receive the OTA upgrade.

    Well I may have to get my feet wet with this awesome looking utility that Matt has blessed us with.
    It's Monday night and I haven't seen anything on the OTA yet. Although it has been a while sense I looked.

    Many thanks Matt

    Thanks for this utility. I just have a couple of questions. I'm not really "new" to rooting, as I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab I've flashed so many times I've lost count. But this is a Motorola product and I know things are a tad bit different.

    I've flashed the phone with the Eclipse Rom and in my settings menu, it states I'm running on system version 6.12.173.XT912.Verizon.en.US.

    I'm downloading the 6.14.79 ICS leak from here.

    I plan on giving the ICS leak a whirl and seeing how I like it. This utility will take me back to the latest Gingerbread build in case I decide to go back from the ICS leak, correct?

    Also, in order to use this utility, I need to be on a stock Verizon build, right? So that means using RSD to load a completely stock Verzion ROM first, correct?

    Well yes you need to be on stock 6.12.181 to install 6.14.79. This will bring you there like RSD Lite does

    Thanks. I'll fire up RSD and give it a whirl. Hopefully I know what the hell I'm doing lol. I think I only have the stock 6.11.174 ROM. I downloaded the files from here. I'll just do the OTA updates to get it to 6.12.181. That should do the trick, right? Then just root .181 to use ES File Explorer and follow your post from there.

    OK... I downloaded this, I got ICS going.. I installed the drivers included with the utility.

    When I start the .bat file, I get the welcome screen and it asks me to "Press any key to Continue". I hit enter and nothing happens.

    Do I need to be in AP Fastboot mode to run this?

    Sounds like you are running from your phone. The utility has to be run from your pc.

    Ok, I know this is my first post here. I am on so many of these forums now that I can't remember which ones I am a member of, and which ones I am not anymore. So, first of all.. hello.

    Now, back on topic... Will this work to downgrade to 173? The reason I ask? I am a PagePlus Cellular customer. We use Verizon phones for our service, but only @ 3g. In order for us to use 4G phones, we have to modify them in CDMA workshop. Long story short, 181 killed 3G for Droid users on PPC. My gf bought a RAZR from a friend to replace her aging X, but it's already on 181... and so you see my issue. She either wants me to get this one working, or give her mine (which is on 173 and works properly). I am not giving up my phone... but I don't want her upset with me either. Any ideas?

    To downgrade to stock .173 use : version 1.51 of this utility linked in the post located here
    Once you download, run option 1 and it'll take you to stock .173
