    Where is the link to download this. Also, just to make sure, I have DROID RAZR 6.16.211.XT912 running ICS 4.0.4. This will work for it, right? Thanks in advance for taking time to answer this for me. (Just nervous about rooting my phone and it not work)

    There is nothing in the root process that will improve your battery life. It is what you do after root that can make a difference. First, if you root, you can download a number of apps from the Play Store that will allow you to control certain setting on your phone that you cannot influence without root. Secondly, you can use an app like Titanium Backup (and others) to "freeze" apps that you never use or have no intention of using. This prevents them from starting on their own thus saving battery, cpu time and internal memory resources. You can also "freeze" some services and other functions, but you may find that an app doesn't work as a result of a service you froze. In that case you'll have to unfreeze the service or find a different app that doesn't use that service. Example: I froze Yahoo calendar service and when I did my Smooth Calendar app would not work correctly...go figure. As soon as I unfroze Yahoo calendar service the Smooth Calendar work just fine. It can be a trial and error at times when freezing apps...but it does not damage your phone.

    Yeah i know and by freezing and deleting some of the bloatware i would think it could possibly help with battery life and also being able to set the speed of the processor with setcpu and other apps alike.

    So I want to root and i have been looking around on the forums on how to root the razr.....if i follow the above video will it work? and also i saw where the OP said something about he had another video about fastboot files or something of that nature....im guessing this is done after root and it should be done so i could get back to stock if i wanted?

    ^^WHS

    do you have a link for us to download the root software? The video is nice but not very useful without the root software already downloaded like you have.

    The sticky is at the top of the first page of this forum..."Droid Razr Hacks". It is the second section you see when you enter that page.

    I don't have anything against the OP and the information he has posted in his thread, but if you want to root your phone I recommend using Matt G's DroidRazrUtility 1.81 or 1.82. You can find that utility on this forum. It is regarded as the safest and easiest way to root your razr running 4.0.4.
