    Been looking around for a solid root after I did an OTA update from 2.3.5 - 2.3.6 and I lost root access to my RAZR.

    Found this and ran it and it worked perfectly :)

    Make sure your device is in USB debugging mode, attach it to your PC, ensure you have the latest Motorola drivers installed, extract the entire zip file, and execute “run.bat”.

    Simple

    Cool... will be getting the Razr MAXX in about 3 days... thanks for this.

    One question, might as well ask it here... is it possible to use Wireless Tether for Root Users over 4g, or does that still only work on 3g? This will be my first 4g phone.

    Yup, works no problem with 4G LTE and you get great speeds. I posted up a quick vid on youtube with a demonstration.

    I can't find that Wifi Tether app on the market that is shown on the youtube video above. I tried Open garden and Barnacle my device connect to the Razr via Wifi but there is not internet...

    Yeah I think they put some sort of block on the razr maxx. Foxfi no longer works. It sends it a signal but no internet.

    Do you have any of the data encryption activated on your device?

    Hello Everyone, I am thinking oif upgrading, I ahve a d2g presently and thing of razr maxx or droid4. My concerns are rootablitiy of either and wifi-tether. As I can see from this forum so far is that vzw blocked this on the razor, my d2g sill has the wi-fi working. Other questions would be , is there sbf's avail for either of the new phones, and other software to help undo a brick. Only asking because I soft brick my d2g many times but was able to recover.

    Thankyou for your input

    The latest drivers can be had from here:
    USB and PC Charging Drivers - Motorola Mobility, Inc. USA

    I
    think that you should also make sure to extract the zip file for the root program on the windows desktop for it to work correctly.

    I finally bit the bullet and rooted my maxx using this method. Is there anything else I need to get to take advantage of this?

    Now just one question.

    How would you go about Unrooting your phone when the OTA update comes out?

    Sorry for the newbie question.....

    What EXACTLY does a rooted smartphone do or do better than a non-rooted one? Would the "average" user see a difference or benefit? Is the processing speed so much better?

    When you root you can change roms, and use different apps that let you control the cpu, take screen shots and much more, I've rooted one other phone the Droid 2 but I used a easy root program that would root and unroot for you. nervous about doing it with my maxx because I know somethings have changed and I haven't read enough (which I don't think you can ever do)
