    For those rooted Razr owners before the ICS upgrade and if you used Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper before and after your ICS upgrade, please share your experience.

    Hopefully I've got my rooted Maxx ready for the upgrade but I haven't read too much on this.

    I have Rootkeeper, but I didn't use it. I used's Matt's Utility 1.7 to upgrade though, plus I had all the bloatware frozen in Titanium Backup, so I had to defrost all of them and then use his utility to return the phone to stock 2.3.6.

    If you are going to do the straight OTA to get ICS, you have to make sure you haven't deleted or frozen an bloatware, and you are not rooted. Good luck!

    I'm set, hopefully. I'm presently un-rooted with Voodoo, everything's defrosted and I run stock GB 2.3.6. Just want to hear of any success stories using Voodoo while upgrading to ICS. All previous upgrades on my Razr Maxx and Bionic have been successful using this method with Voodoo, but this is a big change to ICS.

    You need to get rid of Safestrap or Bootstrap prior to OTA but I did read of successes with Voodoo. The upside is that "The Utility" will root .211 no problem, plus there are manual methods available too for .211

    Yes. Did a TEMP UNROOT in GB and then re-enabled ROOT after installing ICS.

    BTW -- I still had Bootstrap installed when I upgraded via OTA and it was fine.

    Ask and yee shall receive! Excellent news. Don't use bootstrap or safestrap so this isn't an issue for me. Now give me my damn ICS dessert already! I'm tired of playing with the wife's phone! :biggrin:

    +1.

    I used a method found on droidrazr website. I was on stock GB. I rooted with Matts Utility 1.6, used OTA Root then I dumped the OTA (.211 leak) into my root folder and ran using rom manager. After I booted up ran OTA and it worked out good.
