    I am trying to root my phone using Razr_Blade and it keeps failing.

    USB Debugging is on, unknown sources is enabled, I have all proper/updated moto drivers installed, and I followed the instructions in smartactions.

    I was using smart actions on the stock system would this be a problem or not?

    any help will be greatly appreciated

    Thanks!

    Is the phone in mass storage mode? It shouldn't be.

    Had the same type of problem with my Razr Maxx. Tried a number of times but nothing. It finally worked after I made 2 changes. #1 make sure the "blade" folder is on the desktop. Mine was on my D drive. No good!! #2 Make sure "smartaction" app starts from scratch. You want to be at the beginning "startup" screen After I moved the folder to the desktop the program ran but would not complete. But after I got smartaction back to its start screen and folded the instructions, IT WORKED. BELOW ARE INSTRUCTIONS THAT I USED. Sorry, I don't have the source but thanks to whoever wrote these instructions.
    1. Download and install the USB drivers for your device on to your PC
    2. Download the Root Package. File name is razr_blade.zip. Extract the zip file to your desktop to get a folder named razr_blade
    3. On your phone, Go to Settings » Developer options and enable USB Debugging.
    4. Also make sure that the SmartActions app is installed on your phone and is not disabled or modified in any way
    5. Connect your phone to your PC. Wait for a few seconds while Windows automatically installs and configures drivers.
    6. Now open the razr_blade folder you extracted in Step 2. Launch the tool by double-clicking the file named run. This should open up a DOS window
    7. Press any key to initiate the rooting process, and follow the onscreen instructions to root your device
    8. Once the rooting has been completed successfully, your phone should automatically reboot. Leave it be till it boots up fully, at which time it should be fully rooted.
    9. To check if the root process was successful, look for an app called Superuser in the App drawer. If you see it, then you’re golden. If not, you would need to repeat the process from Step 5 onward.

    with the razor blade root your phone no longer needs to be in mtp mode it will work in storage mode..
    usb debugging is the only setting you need to enable and yes make sure your smart actions enabled and you don't have any set

    How long does this process take?
    How long should I leave it sitting at "daemon started successfully" before concluding it isn't doing anything and start over?
    Thanks
