    Be aware that the link provides files that need updating before root will work, but I rooted 4.1.1

    Yes, jelly bean. I had to update my Superuser.apk to the latest fix for jb 4.2. Updated using ROM manager. Must wait for the second small vibe to confirm the bug report. I tried about 500 times, followed the directions every time. I tried several different Superuser versions until I arrived at Super Su and that worked

    Have not got my M,s yet just ordered. So do I want to take the JB update then root or root first then update would hate to get something like the dreaded sbf.621 in the update. Also I read somewhere about using voodoo root keeper before you update.

    @Albinodroid: I downloaded the SU .apk using ROM Manager. The updated .apk on Android Market works also.

    @Expo: the reason you have the message is your sdk is not located on the root of your C:\ drive. The tool you are using is looking for adb.exe and not finding it in the expected path.

    mdsco,
    M I received in the mail last week ( still sitting in the box) came pre-installed w/ JB. I would guess any fresh M's would too ship with JB pre-installed.

    ^ Right. You all have a way if going back to ICS though if you want to root it.

    Okay, got my M rooted. Now,what to do? lol

    Thanks to a user by the name of hillmom over at http://www.razrforums.com/ for a great post with EVERYTHING you need for rooting your M.

    http://www.razrforums.com/forum/droid-razr-m-development/3002-droid-razr-m-everything-root.html

    When I first rooted, with the link from xda above, turns out it really didn't root due to the outdated su superuser.apk that rooted_default mentioned, even after updating them. Note: in the link I provided, under rooting tips, number four takes care of this issue. From there, you need to install Safestrap by hashcode0f to do any "roming"; which is where I'm off to next.

    Make Sure to Grab All the Stuff for Flashing or FastBoot in case of unforeseen issues!!!!!!!!!!!
