    Just ran this and everything seems to be working fine. This is my first foray into the rooted phone world so I have some research ahead of me, but superuser seems to be working just fine.

    sorry to be a pest but say i have to bring back a refurb droid 4 back to verizon, is there a .bat/1-click unroot out there yet? :D


    edit: well i dont plan on installing a custom rom (just want to be able to freeze bloatware).. so maybe i just do a hard reset yes?

    Tried to root my phone this morning and it is not working. The tool says the following lines:

    [*] Waiting for device...
    [*] Device found.
    [*] Rebooting device...
    [*] Waiting for device to reboot...
    [*] Rebooting device again...
    [*] Waiting for device to reboot...
    [*] Attemping persistence...
    remount succeeded

    Thats where it stops and nothing has changed on the phone. I have Superuser and BusyBox installed (manually from the store) and Titanium Backup (the program I am wanting to use) but it still says that root access is still not availble. Any ideas on what im doing wrong or how to fix this.

    Jsnweitzel's Droid4 Utility I think has an unroot option, otherwise use RSDLite to flash stock ICS and then root will be gone.

    Actually the ICS tool doesn't have a unroot option. I just tested the unroot that was used on GB and it worked! I will be updating the ICS tool in the next day or two to include this.

    1.) first install this driver on your pc to allow comunication http://omniimpact.com/android/roms/myfishbear/tools/MotoHelper_2.1.40_Driver_5.5.0.exe
    2.) turn on usb debugging in settings / developer options
    3.) unzip this and use this tool http://omniimpact.com/android/roms/myfishbear/tools/razrs_edge_windows.zip
