    Matt's Utility Version 1.8 ...

    Download it to your PC, extract the utility to it's own folder on your computer, and run the utility from within the folder with your phone connected via the USB cable.

    Make sure USB debugging is enabled and your phone is set to "Media Device"

    Select option 2 ... Ice Cream Sandwich Root 4.0.4

    You can find the utility here >>> http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-razr-hacks/216562-droid-razr-utility-1-8-a.html

    I
    t will probably take longer to download the utility than it will to actually root your phone. :)

    ROMs I can't help ya with, I have never once flashed a ROM. But there are several threads about various ROMs, or someone else can weigh in on that subject. :)

    Thanks! Can I use this with an unbranded Asian GSM RAZR (Not MAXX)? Or do I need to look elsewhere?

    Chuck if you do a Google search for GSM Razr Utility you will see one that you can use, this one is for CDMA only.

    I'm going to go ahead and say ahead of time that I must be an idiot. Although I've never rooted a cell phone, I'm usually pretty good at following directions. I've tried to root my Razr Maxx for the last two days and I've carefully followed each step but when the program runs all I get is that it can't write files and that access is denied and it reboots a few times and I notice the same failed statements that scroll in the program. I've even tried 2 different programs that I think are for my phone. I know that i've followed each step but I must be missing something. I've even tried using different USB ports on my laptop. I've also googled to see if I can find someone with an answer but so far I've seen nothing and it hasn't messed up my phone in any way. If anyone has an idea what I'm missing I'd appreciate the help.

    Ok, first of all what are you using to root your phone? What system version are you running (menu>settings>about phone)? Let's start with that info and move on from there.

    Thanks for the response, and the last software I tried was the one mentioned earlier in this thread (1.82). The system version of my phone is 77.111.10xt907.Verizon.en.US and it says my android is 4.0.4. The 4.0.4 android version is what made me think this would work. I never noticed any info on the different system versions but it would make sense to why I've had so much trouble with my phone.

    The reason you are having problems is that you have a Razr M. The utility you are trying to root your Razr M with was made for the Razr/Razr Maxx. It will not work on your device. Go to the Razr M subforums. There is a tread there about rooting the Razr M.

    I need help on Razr Maxx

    Hey Guys, great work. Much appreciated.
    I am a new owner of an unlocked Verizon Motorola Razr Maxx with ICS 4.0.4. I am using the Reliance CDMA network in India. I am able to make and receive calls and send text messages. The phone is acting very weirdly on me.

    Once i put the Reliance CDMA sim and power up the phone, the welcome screen appears. Once i select 'English' as the language and click on 'Start', it gives me a message saying that ' Please wait, this may take a few minutes'. After a couple of minutes, I am getting the following message 'A SIM card is needed to operate this phone. Please turn off your phone and insert your SIM card'. I can access the settings and play around with few of them. I have tried many combinations, but of no use.

    When i go to About Phone > Status. Under 'Network type and Strength' following are the stats
    Service state --> In Service
    Roaming --> Not Roaming
    Mobile Network State --> Disconnected
    My Phone Number --> (empty)
    MIN --> Unknown
    PRL Version --> Unknown
    ERI Version --> Unknown
    ICCID --> Unknown
    IP Address --> Unavailable


    It does not allow me to use apps or play games or do anything fun on my handset. The network signal indicates full signal reception, i am able to make calls and receive calls and send text message only.

    How can i get it to start working like a normal ICS smartphone and enjoy the rich multimedia experience ? Kindly help me. Thanks in advance

    Did you install a game, e.g. Angry Birds? When you tapped a game or app icon like Gmail, what happened? Maybe you can start a new post for your issue...
