    I used razrblade to root. The utility wouldn't work for me.

    Razr_Blade Root works perfectly with 98.72.8 (December 24 JB Leak) & 98.72.16 (Current OTA version). If you already have the Battery Saver Smart Actions set up, you may have to delete it before running the exploit, but other than that, it's good to go. I didn't actually delete it, but went in and hit save as it said, and it worked perfectly. I can't speak for the new Smart Actions update but once we have someone on it who runs the exploit, we'll know for sure.

    Edit; Smart Actions in the updated version will NOT work with the Razr_Blade exploit. If you've already updated Smart Actions and haven't yet rooted, you'll need to fastboot back to stock earlier version of Smart Actions using Matt L. Groff's http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...12-jellybean-windows-mac-linux-all-one-4.html, and choose option 2 (which will not wipe the phone's data). This will replace the existing OS with the earlier Smart Actions. Once completed, run the option 3, to root, and then (if you so choose), option 4 to install Safestrap.

    As always, thank you! Deciding if battery is actually failing and if Razr needs to go back to Verizon. Just don't know if it is a JB software issue or a Hardware problem. If it is hardware and I do return the phone to Verizon and they discovered that it was routed I may run into a problem, so I am in a real Catch-22 position. Yuck!

    As I've said on countless threads, over 90% of claims of a "failed battery", once they've undergone testing - results proves the battery is in good health, which points to another cause for the "apparent" poor battery performance. I've found in the overwhelming majority of cases that it's NOT the battery that is at fault, but a charging and metering circuit that's fallen out of sync with the battery's actual maximum charge level and minimum charge level, resulting in the meter telling you the battery is draining quickly or is near empty when in fact it's not. In the most extreme case, I had a MAXX owner whose phone was saying 5% remaining for over 8 hours of straight video playing.

    The solution is to "train" the meter to what the battery's max and min are...

    Power off the phone completely (press and hold power button, select "Power off", choose OK).
    Plug it into the STOCK wall adapter and STOCK USB/Charging cable.
    Allow it to boot into "Charge only" mode (large battery icon and % of charge indicated).
    Let it charge fully (100% displayed), this can take up to 3.5 hours (Droid RAZR), or 5.5 hours (Droid RAZR MAXX). To check charge level along the way, tap either the up or down volume buttons briefly. DO NOT tap the Power button.
    Once fully charged (100% displayed), disconnect from charger and power up normally.
    Now, use the phone as you normally would, but watch as it approaches 15%.
    Once it displays 15% and tells you to "Connect to charger", power the phone off completely again.
    Then as the first time, plug in and allow to charge to 100% with power off.
    Once the second charge cycle is completed, you can power up and use normally, and you should see normal battery consumption from there on.
    Repeat this process every 2 (*Droid RAZR), or 3 (*Droid RAZR MAXX), months.

    FoxKat,
    Thanks, But unfortunately I've done this at least eight times in the last 4 to 5 months, maybe more. I've tols every friend and family member about this process also. but, alas, it won't help my Razr. Someone else mentioned that the cells may be dying. After full a charge it drops Very quickly from 100 to 90%. It stays between 80 and 70 for a few hours and then drops very quickly to 50. It seems to last Longest at percentages below 50%. OH my! Not to good......

    Dropping from 100% to 90% shortly after removing from the charger is a matter of timing. Once the phone reaches 100% charged, the charging circuit shuts off charging and simply allows the phone to run on the battery while asleep. It continues to monitor the remaining charge, and unless the charge level drops to 90%, it will not charge again. If you remove it form the charger immediately after it hits 100%, it will hang at 100% for a good long time, but if it's been sitting at 100% for a while, when you remove it - it may actually be at 91% for instance. So then in a very short period of time, it hits 90% and it "appears" to have lost 10% in literally minutes.

    Also, the rate at which power is used on these phones fluctuates throughout the day, so at times it can be pulling very little power, whereas other times it's demanding a lot of power. The battery is most capable of providing power at high current levels in the middle of the charge range, between 80% and about 30%. Hanging on at percentages below 50% is a strong indication that the meter is out of sync. I know you've done the training several times, but something you're doing during that training isn't going right. Either it's not reaching 100%, or (more likely), it's not dipping to the "Low battery" level where the window pops up.

    It's just not normal for the meter to drop power levels in a sporadic way.

    Please post a pic of the battery level after a full charge and as you near empty.

    See mine for an example.

    It doesn't sound to me like the cells are dying (although, I admit, I am not sure what dying battery cells would appear like... I would assume though, that the meter would gradually decrease at typical intervals but decrease at a faster rate). It does sound more like the meter is not accurately reporting your battery %. It doesn't hurt the phone or battery to do the meter calibration and I highly recommend it (along with an fdr) every time you change the os (whether via an OTA, side load, rooting, changing rom, etc).
