    The leak does not require root, as the ota version doesn't either, the instructions are there and it should be fairly simple to do

    We are the Droid!! You will be assimilated!! Resistance is futile!!

    Would I just use steps 1-3, 12-18? Steps 4-11 talk about "temp root" and "protect root"

    For those of us who haven't rooted our RAZR XT912s, the simplest is way to load the Dec 24 JB release onto our SD cards and then install it using stock recovery. No PC is needed. It's very important to fully charge your phone first. Also. your phone must be on the stock 211 ICS build. The process takes about 15 minutes. I did this on Dec 25, and JB has been flawless.

    This has been covered completely here http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...lly-bean-leak-classroom-w-mattyp-friends.html. You do NOT need to root, and now that the leaked version of Jelly Bean for the RAZR and RAZR MAXX has been rooted, you don't have to go through the steps you mention to "temp root" and "protect root" if you do want root. Instead, you simply install the rom, then root afterwards.

    All the instructions are in the first post by me, and there are plenty of members and staff covering any questions.

    Closing this thread now.
