    Did you not backup your phone after getting root?

    That utility that you are saying to "screw" is made by the guy that wrote that post you linked. He put a lot of hard work into making one program us Razr users can have to do all of the things we want, such as root, unroot, fastboot, install bootstrap and safestrap.

    Might behoove you to show a little respect and gratitude for his hard work, that utility is far from a waste of time. Fastbooting with that utility is much easier than going through RSD lite, plus after the reset you can reroot if you want.

    Matt's Utility is the best way to do anything on your Razr from root/unroot to flash RSD back, etc. I used it quite a few times already and didn't have a problem...only problem I had was not unzipping the files once I downloaded his program, just a n00b mistake on my part LOL

    Dude, you need your head examined, LOL. You're giving advice to someone who evidently is not an experienced user with root. The advice you just gave is far more complicated and requires RSD and a process that is probably light years more complicated for an inexperienced user than Matt's utility. And yes, Sydman is right, the guy who wrote that link you sent gman1818 to also wrote the utility for that very reason...simple, fool proof and in the opinion of very experienced users a must for anyone who roots their phone.

    gmen1818...go next door to the Razr Hacks section and download and install on your computer Matt G.'s Razr Utility. Option 1 will take you back to stock .173. Make sure you save any pics, videos, music etc that you have on your internal sdcard to your external sdcard because when you do that it will "wipe" you system clean and put a fresh (stock) .173 on your phone. By the way, the first thing you should do after you have rooted is install Razr Bootstrap and make a backup of your phone so you can recover when you want a different ROM or go back to rooted stock.

    LOL, that's what I call foot in mouth.
    The reason I recommended Matt's utility is because I've used it a number of times going from the leaks back to the current version for the OTA or soak. Its never failed me and is easy to use thanks to Matt's detailed instructions. He also keeps it updated so you can flash back to the most current release saving you from going back to 744 to 748 to 173 as your post would have him do.
    Thanks to Matt's hard work (as shown by your link to one of his past post), countless Razr owner have the freedom to experiment with leaks, Roms and rooting without having to worry about screwing up their phone.

    Back when I had my Droid 1 I was never a fan of ANY utility to do the dirty work I believed that you should learn to do your flashing the "Right Way" and use RSD Lite. I didn't even let ROM manager flash the Zip files for me I would always boot into recovery and manually do the steps required figuring that if something went wrong I would be able to figure out the problem more easily.
    Now with the Razr and locked Boot Loader and not completely understanding Fastboot at first if it were not for Matts utility I would still be sitting here waiting for Verizon to update me to ICS.
    When the Official OTA of ICS comes out I will use Matt,s utility to flash back to get the update...
    Matts utility works and works well... go for it!

    There's a thread somewhere about this.
    if it's the actually leak then I believe you must be stock as far as apps and mods. No deleted or froze just as if you were to receive the OTA...

    +1 on what thadroidz said and make sure you wipe system/cache/delvak etc.

    So does this mean i have to use matts utility to go back to stock .173, root, voodoo root keeper, then flash? Does that sound right?
    My phone is completely stock no frozen apps here. Maybe it its because of bootstrap i tried to do what the other thread said to remove bootstrap but it doesnt let me delete the bootstrap files. Its ok ill just go with matts utility and see how that works

    Yes, you have to be completely "clean" stock .173...no bootstrap or safestrap installed. I think Matt's utility is the best way to get there. Once you get back to .173, root and use Voodoo root keeper to protect root before you proceed. Follow these instructions to a TEE: [How-To] Sideload The Ics Leak! Updated 4-12-12 - DroidRzr.com

    E
    dit: I'm still stock .173 and waiting for the update (if it ever comes). The link I provided (if you haven't already found it) apparently has been very successful for others.
