    ***DO NOT ATTEMPT, unless you clearly understand what to do. Several users have had major issues, it is unknown if they followed the procedure correctly. There may be no benefit to following this procedure anyway, and this does not appear to be required to install the OTA update.


    After searching all the forums I'm familiar with, I couldn't find how to remove the RAZR Bootstrap custom recovery, by DooMLoRD. Obviously the RazrBootstrap apk needed to be uninstalled, but what about the flashed recovery portion?

    I found a thread on DroidXForums.com by Abe21599, which suggested the following for a Droid X:

    1. Reroot (If not currently rooted)
    2. Get root explorer in the market
    3. Uninstall the bootstrap app
    4. Go into root explorer to system/bin
    5. In top right corner tap r/w
    6. Delete the file called hijack
    7. Delete logwrapper
    8. Rename logwrapper.bin to just logwrapper
    9. Reboot and it should be gone.
    (thanks to Droidforums member Hostility6)

    Full thread:
    [HOW TO] Install and Remove Bootstrap Recovery
    I followed the above directions, and booted into the stock recovery with both volume buttons held on power-up.

    All seems well, but could someone with a better understanding of how recoveries work chime in?

    I'm returning to stock... NOT to return my beloved RAZR, but for a good reason ;)

    If hijack was there (/system/bin) then yes its the same procedure. All bootstraps require the hijack to boot into a custom recovery. You should be fine.

    Probably messed up your recovery. Might need to SBF.

    Um if you have adb setup and debugging on then maybe. Have you tried accessing stock recovery? I thought tthere was a fxz (or whatever its called) out for the razr?

    Not for RAZR, maybe thinking of Bionic?

    Quadjacks, sorry to hear what happened, what exactly did you do? I had no issues doing the above, twice. I first deleted "hijack" from /system/bin, then deleted logwrapper (exact name), then renamed "logwrapper.bin" to "logwrapper".

    The last thing I wanted was to post something that would brick peoples phones! If you followed the steps exactly, I might have to delete this thread.

    i think he might've just deleted the files and didn't rename anything. Doing this will bork your recovery. Happened a few times on the X.

    [h=2]remove RAZR Bootstrap custom recovery?[/h]
    Ok, can someone quickly educate me here?

    What is the bootstrap custom recovery?

    Why do we want to remove it?

    And is there recovery files if we mess up our the Razr?

    Bootstrap is what is needed to add a custom recovery to bootloader locked devices. You might want to remove it if you're returning the device. Apparently there are no stock images yet.

    What was the last thing you did before the bootloop? Did you finish the procedure?

    You may want to try to reset the phone by holding the volume down key + power key for 10 seconds.

    Mods, should this thread be removed? I hate the idea that people are messing up their phone with a post of mine, but I had no issue following the procedure..

    I deleted and renamed the files as instructed.

    I can get into recovery and it shows a clockworkmod backup inside there, I can select it but I dont know how to initiate it.

    You can get into the android recovery, right? Not sure how to recover from this to be honest, but on the first page of this post, someone else ran into problems and seems to have come out of it. You may want to send him a PM and see if he can tell you what he did. I believe if you have android sdk installed and adb, you can push the stock files back onto your phone and set permissions which I think would fix the bootlooping.

    Modding your phone without stock files is always very risky. Its like walking a tight rope 10 stories high without a safety net. Everything is done at your own risk.

    If you can access a nandroid just restore it. Not sure what to press to select on the razr, its probably the power button though and use the volume buttons to toggle up and down.

    well, I followed the instructions to the letter.....and it bricked the phone.....this link should be shut down until the procedure is thoroughly tested. I learned the lesson....im not going to try anything without alot of research and making sure it is stable and safe.

    Oh....and its not like walking a tight rope....this is a phone, not life and death...I think developers of these hacks hide alil bit too much behind "do at your own risk" This forum is great to help ppl and unlock what these devices can do. However, I think we can put a label on the thread that states the procedure is confirmed and tested and stable.

    This is the same hijack that has been done on the D3 and the Bionic. The systems are very similar so that is why this was posted. I'm sorry that you've run into trouble.
    If you deleted and renamed logwrapper file you shouldn't be booting into clockwork and see the nandroid backup, as in stock recovery, there is no backup option.
    I'd like to help where I can here!

    Like guidot said, this is a near identical hijack for all Motorola phones dating back tto the DX. Deleteing the hijack will remove clockworkmod, so if it's still appearing then something was not done correctly. If you still need help with it then feel free to post.
