    Been using Razr Maxx and love it! Finally decided to try to root it and having issues. Tried zergrush and all I got was "Daemon Started Successfully" end operation it just freezes there. and yes debug is on, charge only.

    Not yet, I figured I would give it another go today. I have a feeling the problem lies with drivers.

    Welcome.

    First off, what are you wanting to do? Customization? New ROM?

    You can flash the ICS leak or you can stay on GB and flash GB roms... there's themes available, you can use an adblocker, change the font, all sorts of stuff

    I figured I would stay with GB till a confirmed ICS launch. For now I just want to stretch my legs and get the hang of being a root user, I used the Rosenberg root program. I was looking to start simple like theme, lockscreen and CPU tweaks to start with. Any suggestions?

    ROM Toolbox has a ton of options as far as tweaks. For theming, look for some stock themes for .181. There are a few. Lockscreen you can use metamorph and make your own.
