    So I just searched around and apparently there's no way to root the RAZR M yet. Is this true?

    That's quite likely correct. The phone is only days old, so it could be quite some time before we have a successful root. It's a rare situation where rooting is successful in such a short timeframe. Patience my son. :p

    It took months for a root method for the Droid 3 when it came out. But that was Froyo to GB with a locked bootloader. So we shall have to wait.

    Getting the developer edition is the only sure way to know you will get root.

    So I have been trying to manually root it via adb, but I can't the mtp drivers to install at all. So the commands won't send right. The root any 4.0.4 build for the RAZR sends the commands but it just say permissions denied. Anyone else being adventurous? Pointers? Scorpion_mini is its code name lol

    I don't know your background on this kind of stuff, but unless you are really proficient in dev work and exploits, you won't be able to manually root it. That encrypted bootloader is no joke.

    Thanks for the input. I have experience with all the adb and computer programs. But these phones are a different world.

    Once I get the drivers to install correctly I'll try again.

    I will also be keeping my eye on this. My wife just picked one up last Friday and loves the phone! She is coming from the D2 as well that was rooted and had all her pink meter/icons and wants those back...lol. Hopefully someone achieves root on this very nice phone. If I didn't get rid of the DX for the GNex, I woulda switched to this phone in a heartbeat.

    Yeah, my D2 was rooted and had Libery3 ROM, and I loved it. I definitrly miss the tinkering already, so fingers crossed that we get some toys soon.

    I wonder if doing an SBF would reset that root counter thing.

    A lot of the files are read only. I have 4 windows open digging into the read only folders exploring before diving in too far lol.

    I don't get why they make it so painful. I mean, the percentage of people who root has GOT to be very small, and the whole point of the Android OS is to be able to do what you want with it. If I wanted this kind of a pain, I'd get an iThing.
