    Ok guys here's where I am so far. I got ICS up and running. Then I tried to run the razrsedge root. It got to "daemon started successfully" and never progressed passed that point. I tried again. Now it will get to "Waiting on device" and no further.

    I have also tried to load the flashable zip for Google Now, but now I cannot boot into recovery to attempt it. I get to the menu and select "recovery" Next I see a poor dead droid with an exclamation coming out if his chest. At this point I can only remove the battery and reboot.

    Any advice on how to fix any of these problems? I am very new to all this customizing. I just started last night.

    Thanks.

    Once you get to the dead droid with the exclamation point, you have to press both of the volume buttons simultaneously to get to recovery. However, you can't flash any custom zip files using stock recovery, you need to install Bionic Bootstrap before you can do that, which requires being rooted. Make sure that you have USB Debugging checked on your phone, and are set the usb mode to MTP before running razrsedge. Also, it is highly recommended that you have the usb cable connected to a usb port directly connected to the motherboard. You should also make sure that you have all of the drivers properly installed.

    Awesome stuff happening now. Google Now is installed. Gotta play with it a bit. Now if i could just get rid of this damn bloatware. I have tried two different methods from YouTube. One uses a simple one click method with Bionic Tool Box app. The other uses Root Explorer to remove each app individually. Neither works. The first claims success when i run it, but the apps are still there. The other does not show the apps i want to remove in the list.

    Got any advice on this one?

    Rom toolbox is the swiss army knife of root apps I highly suggest getting it because you can freeze bloatware, backup all apps and about 15 other useful things

    Thanks for all the tips guys, but i have some apps that seem determined to stick around. I have tried the tools ask of you have suggested, and the apps will not go away. Upon "removal," the icons are still in app trays, though not functional. When activated, a message says "app is not installed." When phone is rebooted, apps auto update and reinstall. Apps in question are: Amazon Kindle, VZNavigator, Slacker Radio, and Verizon Video.

    I use titanium backup for root to remove bloatware. Just backup the app before you uninstall it.

    Awesome. They are finally gone. Thanks altspeed. One more question and i think i will be set. Can someone direct me to a list of everything that is safe for me to remove without crashing my system?

    I actually need that same list. The actual bloatware list is obvious....I want to know what system apps can go bye bye. Krucyfyd go into system/bin and find bugstogo.sh, it's a bugtracker that sends dumps to moto, change the name to bugstogo.sh.bak (or any nonsense extension). That will disable it.

    "Bloatware safe to remove .905" by tgyberg thread should work! MATTYP also has one for the Razr! Sorry don't know how to link it :p
    IDK if you should really mess with the "system" though lol! :) good luck with that!! Q
