    They have a downgrade package to get you from .214 back to .211 so maybe they will come out with one for .215. Other than that you should be able to use the 1.7 utility to get you back to .211, or some say you can just use the Fastboot files but I have not tested that so I will not recommend that as an option in case in bricks your phone.

    Yes this utility will Root the Razr Maxx on ICS. VooDoo root keeper will let you temporarily backup and stop rooting so you can upgrade and then once done you can use VooDoo to restore root.

    They are listed in the instructions at the beginning of the thread, just need to read them depending on what you are trying to do with the utility.

    Hi everyone. I'm kinda new to this, I have a razr maxx On ics that I would like to root mainly for the free wifi hotspot feature. I'm not really sure what to do. I rooted my x2 and it was a piece of cake but this seems a little more complicated. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Not sure if you are up for it or not but this thread will walk you through both processes, and give you a good laugh.

    Now it is a little long and you can sift through however you choose, but it will get you rooted and the hotspot hack.

    I tried to download the 1.8 utility and I'm getting an "unexpected end of archive" error and a " the archive is either in unknown format or damaged" not sure what I'm doing wrong, just trying to download the file.

    Not sure if you figured it out yet or not but I ran into similiar issues on a rooted GB - I used 1.6 to flash back to stock GB - once back to stock I did the OTA update to get into ICS and THEN I used 1.7 to get root back and I am now running Simplex 1.0 without any issues. Of course this thread is for 1.8, which was not out when I went through my rooting process so it was not available but I am sure it will work just as easily as 1.7.Good Luck and Thanks to Matt for all his great work.
