    Is there any difference to rooting with the official JB update compared to the update that has been floating around the last few months?
    Was going to follow this instruction on youtube...

    First time rooting so nervous!

    The razrblade method works on both the leak and the official release. Nothing to worry about :)

    Is that different from that video? The whole purpose is to be able to wifi tether.

    Yep. Razr_Blade Root from Dan Rosenberg (RootMaster), is the bomb. It roots both the leaked and the new OTA versions of the RAZR Jelly Bean.

    Here is a link to the Root Exploit Release and Discussion thread.

    Here's the link to the actual root files:
    Windows: http://vulnfactory.o.../razr_blade.zip
    Linux: http://batakang.com/...blade_linux.zip
    Mac: http://batakang.com/...r_blade_mac.zip

    Instructions:

    Windows-
    -Download the zip file and extract.
    -Connect device via USB (Make sure you have the current Moto drivers FIRST!)
    -Make sure USB Debug is on
    -Make sure you have Smart Actions fully installed, unfrozen and unmodified
    -Make sure the phone IS NOT in mass storage mode
    -Double click run.bat
    -Follow the screen prompts
    -Don't quit until instructed to do so

    Linux/Mac-
    -Extract .zip
    -Open terminal and cd into the folder
    -Run:

    chmod +x razr_blade.sh
    bash razr_blade.sh

    Again, huge thanks to Dan for his diligent work!

    In the video description he says he is using razrblade... So its the same thing. PDA net and foxfi don't work on JB though.

    I'm just scared! My phone is so important to my business. I will probably bite the bullet this weekend and give it a shot.

    Nope, same package, but my links show who wrote it and give you the opportunity to show your appreciation by donating to him. Also, the links are direct to his hosts so you know you're getting the right file and with no errors/junk/viruses...
