    I rooted my D4 when I first bought it. Then it started telling me 3x a day that it needed to update and it failed etc...So I flashed back to stock to allow the update...It went from 2. ... to 4.1.2. I did the root process I found but it didn't work. Can someone help make sure I have the right root file and directions please?TYVM:blink:

    You're on Jb now, right? The razrblade file worked for me, it's a more complicated process than previous root procedures.

    The Razr Blade utility is a little buggy on the D4. Make sure every step passes and you don't run into any errors.

    I believe Razr Blade installs SuperSU, so checking for that app is the quickest way to see if it rooted your device.

    Yes, it does install supersu. I'll be doing a FDR soon so I'll be in the same boat.

    Sounds like you are using the wrong root method.

    Razr_blade is the required method now on JellyBean, Razrs_edge no longer works.

    OKay, for those having issues with razr_blade.zip
    (I was having the same issues)

    What happens is that it detects your phone before the phone is completely booted up. So what I did was every time it says "rebooting" as soon as the device goes off, I disconnected it, waited for it to fully boot before reconnecting and then it will continue the process.

    Eventually it all worked well and I am rooted (took me all of last night, this morning and voila!)

    Hope it helps those getting:
    failed on '/data/logger - permission denied
    mkdir failed for /data/logger, file exists
    unable to chmod /data/logger: operation not permitted
    link failed file exists

    errors

    The original safe root has Knox handling in our that is not required for moto devices. Not going to be a problem, but one never knows. The unnecessary stuff for moto devices has been removed in the version I posted.
