    So I just signed new 2 yr with Verizon and I got the new Razr M (don't know how new they are) but as signing my paperwork she said we'll have to wait while it updates..... I said oh no don't update it she said sorry to late but their phone always updates when they activate them . So maybe I should have tried to get a different M and maybe it won't update if I had it in my hand . Anyway I have the one that got updated and I believe its running jellybean . I know its 4.1.2 is that jellybean. Is there a way to flash back to what it was b4 I'm trying to run foxfi but it says it don't work for 4.1.2 or above. I've found a few things I've downloaded to root it . Can someone send me a link to any thing I can flash or ROMs or anything I can play with . Also what is my M's ROM . I've rooted and played with the Droid X for yrs and its been fun now gotta try a new phone help please thanks

    Phones do not automatically update when you turn them on. You can decline the OTA, she either didn't know that or more likely, lied about it. If she took the latest OTA then you can no longer unlock your bootloader which is a problem because all ROMs now are being developed for unlocked bootloaders only.

    You can still root it by using motochopper but you'll need to revert back an upgrade or so. I don't have the links handy but hopefully someone else can drop it here for you. Otherwise I'll check back in later.

    I don't believe the most recent OTA changed the version number that the phone is on - it was on 4.1.2 before the update also. Any phone that you find in a store to swap it out with will also already come with 4.1.2 installed at this point - you won't find any with 4.0 on them, because they've long been sold (the phone would have had to been manufactured before October of last year in order to ship with 4.0).

    If you want to look into rooting your phone, this is the place to start: Motorola Droid RAZR M - xda-developers

    Sorry, no specific info on which threads to read in there. I haven't found a reason to root my Razr M yet

    There were multiple versions of 4.1.2... The latest OTA was still 4.1.2. But it locked the bootloader.

    Yes, but as he stated Foxfi will not work with 4.1.2 period. One of his questions was basically asking if he should return the phone while he's within his alotted return/exchange policy window and hope he gets a phone without 4.1.2. I pointed out that by now, all Razr M phones will ship with 4.1.2 preinstalled so it's not a good idea.

    Yup, I was responding to the 4.1.2 ROM comment and the bootloader.

    To tether use this: It says HD but should work on any rooted RAZR. It may or may not be outdated, but worth a shot..... It's the easiest method. http://www.droidforums.net/forum/ra...azr-hd-maxx-hd-xt926-wireless-usb-ics-jb.html
