    I have rooted every cellular device that I've owned and I was wondering if the Razr blade utility that I used on my razr maxx would allow me to gain root access to my razr m? Or is there another way to root my razr m?

    Thanks.

    thats the same old method for ics as posted on xda.

    here are the updated utilities that do it all Utility Belt (make sure you grab the correct one for your phone!!)

    From what I saw when looking through those utilities it said not to use with the most recent update of 4.1.2 that locks the bootloader.

    in that case, no, do not use that. here is a utility for versions previous to the current one i posted before DROID RAZR M Utility 1.20 --- Windows/Mac/Linux - Droid Razr M Development [XT907] - DroidRzr.com
    i don't see where it list what version it works on (typical), but by the age of the post i know approximately what it should work on.

    On these RAZR m phones there is no app2sd function, my question is will that change if I root?

    I only ask because I have a 32gb SD card that is basically unused and I have a constant battle with the "insufficient storage available" monster lol

    Yea it's pretty dumb that we can't move apps. On my razr maxx before I got the M I could move them. But to my understanding most if not all newer phones don't allow you to move apps to the SD card

    Yeah it's super stupid!

    I wonder why they would change that from the RAZR max to the RAZR m?

    I'm hoping to get the Droid Maxx because it has 32gb internal storage, and my dad just got one and he loves it
