    Hello,

    I have spent a few hours searching threads and have yet to come up with an answer so i figured i'd ask:)

    I have a razr maxx on 4.04/6.16.211 and upgraded to ICS without unrooting... (dont know what I was thinking).

    I have tried, MotoFail, Dan's utility, and a few other rooting methods on both a mac and pc and they all seem to have one thing in common. My most recent attempt is this:


    Waiting for device...
    * daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
    * daemon started successfully *
    [*] Device found.
    [*] Deploying payload...
    failed to copy 'motofail' to '/data/local/motofail': Permission denied
    Unable to chmod /data/local/motofail: No such file or directory
    [*] Owning phone...
    /system/bin/sh: /data/local/motofail: not found
    [*] Rebooting device...
    [*] Waiting for phone to reboot.
    [*] Attemping persistence...
    remount failed: Operation not permitted
    failed to copy 'su' to '/system/bin/su': Read-only file system
    Unable to chmod /system/bin/su: Read-only file system
    link failed File exists
    failed to copy 'busybox' to '/system/xbin/busybox': Read-only file system
    Unable to chmod /system/xbin/busybox: Read-only file system
    failed to copy 'Superuser.apk' to '/system/app/Superuser.apk': Read-only file system
    [*] Cleaning up...
    /system/bin/sh: /data/local/motofail: not found
    rm failed for /data/local/motofail, No such file or directory
    [*] Rebooting...
    [*] Exploit complete!
    [*] Press any key to exit.

    Device has usb debugging on and have tried it in all three usb modes. My drivers are up to date, and I have the latest motofail.
    The phone still has superuser installed but will not grant access to anything bc it lost root.

    Any thoughts? I am not new to rooting and have rooted every android phone i own, but am certainly not an expert. I would assume this issue has something to do with the phone not giving the program permission to access something but am at a loss and both search and google havent been much help.

    Thanks in advance for all your help!!

    So I feel kind of silly here but if someone else can learn from my mistakes it makes it worth while. Aparently the RazrUtility I was using was the old one 1.5 for gingerbread. I updated to the 1.7 for ICS and root went through the first time no problems. So that was almost a week of frustration over the wrong file. :) Live and learn I guess!!

    For future I would go to the play store and get OTA RootKeeper. That will allow you to back up your root and also temporarily disable root to perform the OTA upgrade. Then just go back to OTA RootKeeper and select Restore Root. Works like a charm, I just did the 6.16.211 upgrade last night. Even kept my HotSpot hack. Next I want to install ClockWorkMod so I can backup my ROM in case anything ever happens. So I will be searching the forums for how to do this on the Razr with ICS.
