    Picked up the Razr yesterday for the wife, so I am looking for the easiest root method for 2.36. Have seen 2 so far,

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-razr-hacks/198379-updated-droid-razr-utility-windows.html and

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-razr-hacks/198057-2-3-6-now-has-root-method.html, which would you suggest?

    And, which has the best way to go backwards after you go forwards, just need to know... Thanks

    Use the utility ...its loaded with all you need to root and revert to stock if need be.. make sure you have the latest moto drivers.. they are in there as well I believe..


    Simply Amazing ...

    I got my Razr yesterday too. I used the utility. It worked like a champ. I even installed VooDoo but it did not work for me. I rooted last night and froze all the bloatware on my Razr. I got the OTA today and it took and broke root. VooDoo would not restore it. I just re-rooted with the utility and life is all good again!

    Like everyone said, use Matt's utility since its by far the easiest and most simple. Once you install root and either bootstrap or safestrap(I recommend safestrap) then make yourself a backup just incase you want to do anything else!:icon_ banana::icon_ banana:
