    Were you in JB 4.1.2 and then went back to .211? Even if you were or were not can you give me step by step info on how to get my Razr back rooted? I want to make sure I open and download the right files. I am now currently running an UnRooted JB 4.1.2 Razr!!:frown:

    Not yet. If you were rooted before the update and used voodoo to preserve the root, it is possible. If your root was lost in spite if using voodoo, then there is a utility out there to help restore root.

    If you did not use voodoo, then for now you are out of luck. There is a bounty being offered on another site to inspire developers into action, and while these guys and gals usually work for the fun and the thanks, money is nice too.

    So, if root is important to you, maybe you can contribute to the bounty.

    I might have already jumped the gun because I tried to go back and restore to .211 using Utility 1.82 and I lost root all together. So now I flashed the JB update but I have no root at all. Can I use Matty P Restore Root Utility and get root back even though I'm running 4.1.2?

    When you flashed the JB update you deleted your restoration files.

    There is nothing left to restore.

    You have to wait for someone to root JB or create a path from JB back to 211.

    So far, those options do not exist. Yet.

    I cannot stress this enough @jcarlosfox. Once you go to JB (update/kernel) you cannot go back to ICS to gain root. Its a one time deal or else you will have to restore like I did and it wasn't fun figuring that out...

    Glad you found a path.

    Is it something that can be repeated, or is your success something that came from hits and misses and no discernable way to duplicate?

    Reading your other post it sounds like you bricked your phone, and forced ICS 215 back on after scrambling the kernel. (Kind of like giving CPR... only works some of the time.) If that is the case, I'm happy for you, but the rest of us will have to wait.

    Confirmed working!

    I am updating my bricked FIX to fix boot now...

    All, its very easy to say thanks, but for all his efforts, do the right thing and at least send $5 bux for a beer. Everyone's time is valuable, and money changing hands is the best compliment for his work - http://goo.gl/zBGb0.
