    From my understanding you cannot use the Droid Razr Utility 1.82 or any version of the RazrUtility to root the Razr M. There is a significant difference between the Razr, Razr Maxx and the newer Razr M that makes it more difficult to root the M. However, the following link will take you to the only known method to root the M: Root your Razr M now - xda-developers. What TisMyDroid said about updates and other issues with the cellular provider are true. The main question you need to answer before you root is this...if I root is there a method to get back to stock? I don't know the answer to that question so do your research. If you can't get back to stock then I presume you won't be able to accept an OTA update...put I'm not positive about that.

    Thanks jp and good catch! I didn't realize the op was talking about the M (actually looking at his version #, I have no idea what he has because my M is XT907 not XT908). I just assumed he had an og Razr because of where he posted and his reference to DRM.

    No problem...if the OP hadn't disclosed the system version I would have "chased the rabbit down that whole" also, LOL.

    My device is a Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX/ not a m also on the back of device it says Model XT908 Type name MOC1D I mean hellfire I've seen so many references to one phone! Lol I would really love it if I could root then if need be unroot but I guess I just may ask to much? IDK oh well I just loved all that the root apps could access I probably wouldn't even flash a custom ROM just have the ability too if I wanted too! Lol. Thanks good peeps

    Yes, in trying to do research, I could not figure out exactly what the xt908 was. The xda forum probably has the most extensive information on rooting Android devices and this is what I found over there...
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1840296

    It appears that because it is a rare version, there is not a secure root method for it.

    My apology Booty_m4n, you do indeed have a Razr Maxx. The model number is not one I have seen before. I'm not at all sure what distinguishes the 908 from the more common 910 or 912...I'm attempting to research that now but not being very successful. Anyway, since you do have a Razr Maxx the RazrUtility mentioned above may very well work to root your phone. A key question remains, is there a way to get back to stock. With the 910 and the 912 there are fastboot files that will enable a user to return their phone to stock when the need arises. I don't know about the XT908. So, root (or try to root) at your own risk.

    I've had mine rooted for a couple weeks. There is a utility that serves as a "one-touch" root. Message me and I'll send the link when I'm back to laptop.

    Keep in mind Jacob, that the reason we have not been able to give him a reliable resource to root is because the xt908 is not the same as Verizon's XT912 Razr/Razr Maxx...therefore we can not be certain that the same root methods that work for the XT912 will work for his version.

    I think responded to all messages but in case I missed you the best way is Matt's Droid RAZR utility 1.8 (from this forum). A quick Google search should get you right there.

    My friend rooted my phone with CyanogenMod and I can't figure out how to unroot it. I wouldn't mind it being rooted, but my phone freezes every time I use it. Someone please help me.

    Also Looking

    Sorry Samantha, I too am looking to unroot my xt912 razr maxx due to freezes and reboots. Can anyone help with a link or info on how I can remove the 4.0.3 root version 6.14.75XT912 Verizon.en.US. Purchased the phone already rooted, however it is not allowing me to upgrade to 4.0.4 OTA version. I read some where that the phone needs to be unrooted. Will Matt's Utility 1.8 work on unrooting the phone so I can install the OTA version to eliminate the freezes. Thank You in advance for you help.

    The following may be your best and easiest way to go back to stock ICS so you can get the OTA version. Keep in mind, that will put you on the current OTA version and you will be set to get the JB OTA when it is released. Also, read read read to make sure this will work with your current root.
    Going back to stock .211:
    *On your pc, download and install Matt's Razr Utility 1.8 or 1.81 or 1.82. You can find 1.82 here:
    Droid Razr Utility 1.82 [Windows] For Verizon Droid Razr And Droid Razr Maxx Only - DroidRzr.com
    *Extract that utility to its own folder on your computer...you must extract the file on your pc. It will not work from your phone.
    *After the utility is extracted, go to the Motorola drivers folder in the utility and make sure you have the latest Motorola drivers installed on your pc.
    *make sure your phone is set to usb debugging mode (menu>system setting>developer options).
    *Power your phone off. Then power your phone on while holding down your power, the volume up and volume down buttons simultaneously.
    *Connect your phone to your computer with the factory supplied usb cable.
    *On your phone select AP Fastboot, then in the utility select option 1..."restore phone to stock .211. Do not unplug the usb cable until the utility finishes.
    *When completed your phone should reboot to stock .211.
    *After running option 1, restart phone to make sure all is fine.
