    My phone did an update a while back and I guess it went to 4.1.2 I had not rooted this previously as I was able to use foxfi - but apparently that is now owned by pDAnet, which I have used in the past - but apparently it doesnt work with Jellybean, at least for it working via wifi, opposed to bluetooth or usb tether... Do I have any options to get tether working via wifi?

    You can root 4.1.2 and get WiFi tethering that way. There are a few different threads in hkw to do this in the Droid RAZR Support section.

    Do you have any specific threads? I went through and tried the following (link to thread below), but it doesnt work (just sits on waiting for device - I can explore phone etc). I noticed this does say that is is for the leaked jellybean - not sure if that matters but the software I have is all oem/updated automatically...

    Extra Credit! Get or recover ROOT on your newly Jelly Bean'd XT-912 Droid RAZR or Droid RAZR MAXX!!



    The entire utility to root XT-912 on the Leaked Jelly Bean is here (http://vulnfactory.org/public/razr_blade.zip).
    1. Put your phone into USB Debugging
    2. Plug the phone into the stock USB cable and then into the Windows PC (Sorry, no Apple yet)
    3. Make sure that USB is in the Media Device mode
    4. Unzip the tool to a convenient location (I chose my c:\ drive on my PC.)
    5. Run the "run.bat" file.
    6. WATCH AND FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS
    7. Enjoy ROOT!

    Oh, derp. I just saw your previous post. It worked for me, but I had to go through the process 4 times.

    Trying out wifi tether for root users from the market - so far so good, looks a lot like foxfi.
