    Can you point me to a guide for what to do next? Just trying to kill the lagging, speed it up and increase battery life. Do I need to flash a ROM or tweak something?

    Are you saying that you rooted your phone with no game plan as to how to proceed afterward? In answer to your question, rooting an Android phone only gives you full administrative rights on the phone. if you want to install a custom rom, you'll need to install a custom recovery like Clockwork Mod before you try to install the custom rom. I'm not a technician and I'm not familiar with the Droid Razr Maxx, so I can't walk you through the installation process, but hang on for a bit and see what our other members have to say.

    Exactly I can't find the steps to proceed further. I rooted. Yay! Big step. Now what? I'm lost. I can't find a guide. Only definitions of what root does and lists of apps available after I've rooted. Where to go, what am I missing, and what not to do.... These and other exciting answers await. But I'm not impatient and I realized pushing a bunch of buttons is not the best thing to do.

    For custom Roms you will need to install safestrap. Honestly, check xda forums at the Razr development section. All guides and such will be posted there.

    if you choose to install a rom with safestrap, make double sure is says in the op its a safestrap rom.
    there are mostly standard roms on xda which dont work with SS.
    typically, there are few SS roms for this line of moto phones. they are generally maintained here Motorola Devices - DroidRzr.com

    Can I use the cyanogenmod one click installer? If I've done nothing but root at this point. For my xt912. Seems to easy. Thanks for all the help. Not trying to pimp my ride, just restore it to what it can be.

    im not familiar with this tool but would say most likely no.
    most if not all roms you would be able to flash are going to be stock based because your bootloader is locked, and there is no way to unlock it at this point.

    the only roms you can use will say for safestrap, if they dont specifically say they are for safestrap, they are not.
