    marty45714,

    Do you know if this tool/process will work on Droid Razr Maxx with the new Jelly Bean update?

    okay - seem to be stuck. I had rooted ics and let the OTA update in without derooting - not sure if that is an issue.

    What I am having happen.

    Got linux up and running
    SMB share connected and confirmed
    Phone in USB Debug and MTP mode
    Exploit is pushed
    It says it is Reinstalling Superuser
    then Success
    then it says
    [+] Rooting phone...

    and onward to
    [+] Getting root....
    [+] Press enter to continue once the device has fully rebooted.


    At this point the phone has rebooted once and it does a whole bunch of vibrating.

    I wait until I think it is done and press the power button and it vibrates some more. Then I wait some more for it to stop.

    I press power button again and it vibrates some more?

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    pressing enter on the linux vm and it says

    [*] Cleaning up...
    [*] Exploit complete. Press enter to reboot and exit.

    a few seconds later the phone reboots and the linux console says

    tc@box:

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    Now I open the phone and I have a # in the notification bar saying I need to reinstall Superuser.

    The Superuser binary(su) must be updated Please choose an installation method.

    Any of the choices result in failure with message

    There was an error installing Superuse. Please send a log of the error to the developer.

    But there is no log file?!?


    ---------------------------------------------

    So what do I need to do/where did I go wrong?

    just to follow up I did the following steps I saw listed on page 2

    I hit ctrl -c to escape the script after confirming smb connectivity in the script

    I went into adb shell and examined the contents of the rfs0 folder, all appeared to be there.

    I went ahead and ran the

    /storage/rfs0/pwn 1

    from the

    shell@cdma_targe:/ $ prompt

    It said it was getting root.

    Phone rebooted and did the whole vibrate thing a bunch more. Then I rebooted it again.

    Still no root :(

    Thanks for all the help, the third update worked brilliantly and now I am rooted! I've got no idea what was wrong but the issue seems to have been resolved so I can't complain :rating10:

    Love to hear reports like this. Thanks! I've pretty much tweaked this thing and added enough additional instructions so that the only think left to do is start driving to people's houses and rooting their phone for them! LMAO!!!

    Nevermind it seems it just took a number of tries to get the wifi correctly working (I could see the share from the phone but still wasn't enough) and then I had to hit the button just right. FWIW I did not see the Important step press a hard key until I got wifi working with the -3 version of the OVA.

    Did you press one of the hardware buttons after the exploit began? If not you need too. It's one of the steps.

    I added an additional, more reliable download link to the original post, just in case anyone was having trouble getting the file downloaded.

    Found a bug... Nothing that would affect the overall functionality, but it could cause some users to think that their phone is successfully connected via USB debugging, when it really isn't. Adding the new links to the original post now...

    Thanks marty45714! My Bionic with Jelly Bean is finally rooted!!! Is anybody aware of a way to overclock the Bionic with Jelly Bean? I tried to install the extra_kernel_modules_0.1.3 and init.d_n_script_installer_0.1.3 along with the Tweakerz_alpha1_module_included, but it wouldn't let me install them, even though I think the kernel number is the same.
