    I recently purchased a Bionic off of eBay that is running ICS 4.04. This phone is not rooted, but when I attempt to root it, (I've tried several methods, including superoneclick) they all say that they cannot find the correct drivers. I have installed the correct drivers multiple times and have even tried installing incorrect ones. Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong? I really want this phone rooted.

    I've already tried Razors Edge along with Motofail and Superoneclick. I tried your link and I received the same result. I says, "deamon started successfully," and never makes it any futher...

    Do you have drivers installed? What usb mode do you have your phone on when hooked up to computer?

    No, but I assumed the phone had just been factory reset before I received it. It was factory refurbished...

    Windows 7. And I'm using the correct USB cable and I've tried multiple ports.

    Interesting. I fought with mine also but it eventually went through.
    Not saying you don't know what your doing but you do have the folder extracted from the zip right?

    I think so. I clicked extract→ browse→ desktop. I then ran it and it never gets passed "daemon started successfully."

    In phone settings: you have checked "usb debugging" and from "unknown sources"? Then plug into back port of pc. Then run razr_edge run.bat file.
