    yes, what does the two options do?

    When ICS comes out, what do I do to make sure I can receive it?

    I had an issue with my phone and did not know if they would be replacing it or not so I ran Ginger unroot on it in case they were to give me any issue when looking over my phone.

    It ends up the problem was with my docking station connections, which they replaced.

    I came back to the office to root the phone again with Doomlord's program and it will not root again. It appears to fail when running the line:

    @files\adb shell "cd /data/local/tmp/; rm *"

    The folder does not exist. It goes through the rest of the routine, but I guess it doesn't really do anything since it cannot get to that folder. Do I just need to create this folder with adb? If so, could someone give me the proper command so I can try it again?

    Thanks ahead of time for your help.

    Edit: I found a command to make the folder. it comes back that the folder already exists. I ran the command again and it tells me "rm failed for *, No such file or directory"

    I got it working. Apparently the batch file did not load superuser on my phone. I ran the batch file line by line and still did not have root. Root checker would always come back negative.

    However, I noticed ES File explorer would let me into the root folder, so it was like I was semi-rooted. I d/l superuser and installed it and things started working.

    Not 100% on this but I'll do my best. The Bootstrap recovery button basically mounts the recovery (just a guess) and the reboot recovery button reboots it into cwm recovery. Not sure why the two buttons and not just one that would run the first command then after a success run the second command to reboot, but I'm sure there is a reason. Basically the two commands work with each other so they are more like steps not options. Hope that helps.

    Worked like a charm! Definitely a must if not for the sole purpose of being able to use Titanium Backup. Thanks!

    Output from (successful) batch-file run.

    So, worked easily (dare I say, easier than the D1?). But since I wasn't sure what to be looking for and/or what to expect, and since a few folks have asked "I see such and such, should I see more???"; I've cut/paste exactly what the batch file should show when you run it (or at least, what it showed for me). Dunno, it may help someone, but your usage may vary...

    (btw; I love the zergling references!)

    Code:
    ---------------------------------------------------------------

       Credits go to all those involved in making this possible!
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
     
    [*] This script will:
         (1) root ur device using latest zergRush exploit (10 Nov)
         (2) install Busybox (1.18.4)
         (3) install SU files (binary: 3.0.3 and apk: 3.0.6)
     
    [*] Before u begin:
         (1) make sure u have installed adb drivers for ur device
         (2) enable "USB DEBUGGING"
               from (Menu\Settings\Applications\Development)
         (3) enable "UNKNOWN SOURCES"
               from (Menu\Settings\Applications)
         (4) [OPTIONAL] increase screen timeout to 10 minutes

    Hello all.

    I stumbled upon your page when a friend told me about "owning" my new Droid RAZR.

    I am intrigued by what I read here and have proceeded to follow the instructions as they are written on the first page of this thread.

    After running the .bat file, I got a message saying that the root was successful and my phone rebooted.

    Is there a way of verifying that the phone is indeed rooted?

    I ask, as I installed wifi tether and when I launch it says NO ROOT.

    Also, when I run Adv. Task Killer, I don't see the Apps I want to get rid of such as Slacker.

    I had a Droid 2 and rooted it successfully and don't think I was successful at all with my RAZR.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance and kudos on a great thread!

    Root checker basic on the market. Also do you have superuser in your app drawer?

    Did you install the latest moto drivers, do you ave adb installed, connect in charge only mode?
