    Did you recently update via OTA (over the air update) and you changed your system version? Are you getting a specific error message - su binary outdated or anything to that nature?

    Usually root is lost when you upgrade from one system version to another...

    If somehow you're still on 893 and not rooted root via rota893 and you're golden for good. If you're on 902 and not rooted root via motofail and good for keeps also

    z4root hasn't worked on Motorola phones for quite awhile now. You need to download the RazrUtility 1.6 (found next door in the Hacks forum) and use that to root your .181.
