    Never done it before, wondering what advantages it would give me?

    Thanks!

    I just rooted my rezound. I love to root my phones because it really gives you a lot of options on things you can do to make your phone more personalized and faster. Just make sure you do your homework first.

    One of the biggest advantages of rooting is the ability to use your phone as a 4G hotspot without having to pay Verizon the extra charge.

    Easier to root? Yes.

    More at stake if you mess something up? Yes.

    All of the new Moto devices are locked up, so you need to be wary of that. Also, the new way to flash the phone is with an FXZ file in fastboot mode. Don't know if the Maxx has an FXZ file yet.

    Not sure if I should now. Exactly how hard is it to do?

    Pretty sure if you look for user mattlgroff on this forum, he has everything you need to root your RAZR.
