    Go to the link and download the zip. Unpack on desktop have the phone in USB debug mode. Click the bat file.

    Sweet. I need more information prior to rooting. Not sure what does work if you root vs what doesn't work if you root. I will keep my eyes peeled on this thread.

    Is there a thread somewhere that explains what rooting is and its benefits and disadvantages?

    I might wait for mattlgroff to release a tool to update his DroidRazr Utility.

    The instructions on the thread the OP posted aren't totally clear. I get lost on freezing Smart Actions. I haven't started the process yet and will wait a couple days before doing so.

    Smart actions has to run. He's saying don't freeze it and if its frozen un freeze. Having root. Plus titanium gives you the option to freeze apps.

    This method is almost as easy as using Matt's utility. The only extra step seems to be going into smart actions and checking the battery saver option and saving after the first reboot. I tried this lastnight and failed the first 3-4 times. I did and FDR and everything worked perfectly so keep that in mind if you decide to do this.

    My BIGGEST reason for rooting would be.......FREE WIFI TETHER! :icon_ banana:. Of course there are custom Roms you could flash as well which I have flashed quite a few before but found none actually worked out for me. A lot of them have stuff to in theory give you some awesome battery life but in the end IMO the stock Rom gives me the best.

    I'm looking into doing this right now but it seems that there are too many questions. I have one, and that is I don't know how to check to see if I'm in mass storage mode or not. I'll wait on the process. I'm a bit noobish when it comes to Android.

    Its a easy process. I've rooted before so ask and I can help. Plug or phone into PC. Then pull down notification tray and tap on the connection type and put into MTP mode

    How does the general user experience change when you root? Or, does it? I'm referring to calling/texting/other apps/widgets. If I root, can I get rid of pre-installed apps or does that require a whole different ROM? What's MTP mode?

    Well folks, it works!! I have root again! :icon_ banana:

    One thing...it LOOKED LIKE it failed, but it didn't fail. The specifics were that while running the exploit, it displayed the following:

    Cleaning up...


    The reason I thought it had failed is that every time it tried to write, it showed 0 bytes. Strangely enough at the end, while the "Cleaning up..." was still on the screen, my phone kept waking and going back to sleep every 10 seconds or so. So I picked up the phone and hit the Power button, and to my surprise was SuperSU asking if I would Grant Root access to ADB shell! So, I've confirmed root with Root Checker! Now to do the tether hack and I'll be able to give my new tablet internet access!

    YAY!:icon_ banana:

    Great find The Stig 04!

    I'm going to implement this into my http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...lly-bean-leak-classroom-w-mattyp-friends.html so that it will be complete. Also, anyone who benefits from this exploit, as well as from Matt L Groff's Droid RAZR Utility, you should consider buying them a beer or three!
