Most excellent! Easy as pie and twice as tasty...
My Razr HD is on 4.1.1 and I just got the notification to download the update this morning but dismissed it, what is the easiest way to keep my phone locked on 4.1.1 ?
Here is my recommendation if you want to keep 4.1.1 and never update, go into Titanium Backup or if you do not have that app> go into Settings> Apps> ALL> find the two apps 1) Motorola Services and 2) Updater, disable both of these apps, or if in Titanium Backup "Freeze" both of these apps. You will never be bothered again to update. If in the future you want to update just re-enable or unfreeze these apps, go into Settings> About phone> select to download the update and you can then install it.
I was able to disable services but not updater, must need root to do that one. Thanks
Not working on my Bionic
Hi I lost my root in the update to Jellybean even with ota rootkeeper installed.
Trying this solution when pushing thew exploit results in the following failure;
Any help is appreciated
This is 4.1.1 though. I thought official JB was 4.1.2. Is there any difference?
Thank you for all the hard work anyways =)
Yeah. I have spent hours just trying to get to jelly bean 'cause my update kept failing. At this point, I'm happy to finally be a bean =) I'll wait for an exploit (if there will be one). Maybe when I get my new phone in October XD. I just really don't like ads haha
Guys, I just rooted my 4.1.2
Go to YouTube right now, and paste this: How to Root the Droid Bionic on Jelly Bean 4.1.2
It freaking works. It takes a while. A LONG time especially if you read everything you need to know from start to finish. I'm telling you, do your research all around this (how to properly install, how to boot from CD, etc.), and you will successfully root your phone.

I've seen a few of his videos before, but this one was posted less than 24 hours ago. Please drop a like and a favorite if you try it and it works (or even if it doesn't work)
I don't want to steal anyone's thunder, so please try out the Easy Root Komplete method first, just to see if it works =)
I just upgraded to a Droid Razr Maxx HD on 4.1.2 and was wondering if someone could summarize how to root it (if it's even possible). The OP has so many steps, I just want to make sure I'm doing the right thing.
I'm not particularly noob to rooting, my previous phone was the Droid X which I had rooted and on Liberty. But I loved that phone/rom so much it's been over a year since I've had to do any of this stuff. I'm a bit rusty
Any help is greatly appreciated!
Just to be totally clear, I am on System version 9.16.6.XT926.Verizon.en.US
Android version 4.1.2
NEVERMIND! It was just too easy I didn't believe it could be true. I just ran motochopper. Pow! Bang! Zoop! and I'm rooted. This video was a big help.
Hey, newbie here. sup.
Anyways, I have the bionic. I'm running 4.1.2. Windows 8. I think the only steps I need are these, correct?
On to the Motochopper exploit
1) Extract to your desktop the ENTIRE CONTENTS of the downloaded zip file
2) Make sure you have the latest Motorola USB drivers installed on your computer
3) Make sure that USB Debugging is enabled go to Settings> Development> check USB Debugging> make sure device is connected to your computer
4) Open the EXTRACTED file “Motochopper” and find the “run.bat” or “run” Windows Batch File, do a right click> select “Run as Administrator” and follow all the prompts.
Well, I followed them, and I get "Daemon started successfully" and it just... sits there. Like watching paint dry. Thoughts? Here's some randomness that MIGHT be helpful:
1. I'm using a USB 2.0 front port with a 3.0 header. I'll have to take her apart to see if there is a 2.0 header. CM690.
2. I have rooted in the past, and Unrooted successfully to get OTA, in hopes that it didn't suck anymore. Guess why I'm here?
3. Port 5037?
4. Tried rebooting phone.
K, cool. I'll delete it. But.... There's NOTHING in /data/! Not the SD card. Well, there's a flixter folder, but that's irrelevant. WTheck?
This Motochopper is NOT GOING TO WORK FOR YOU. You mentioned that you have a Bionic, the Motochopper does not work on that device.
I do not own a Bionic, therefore I cannot test this method to see how it works, but here if you want to gain root on your Bionic you need to refer to this thread, again a big thanks to Dan Rosenberg as he chops away on Motorola.
For future Googlers with the BIONIC:
Solved the problem.
OK, I'll tell ya how. I had to flash the system.img and followed the Easy Root for Bionic running stock Jelly Bean. Google "Easy Root for Bionic running stock Jelly Bean" with the quotes.

why does it say [-] Failure
also, superuser is installed but root is not working (outdated SU)

You want to flash the system.img for your phone. I'm not sure where to get the files you need, though. Hopefully that helps.
I'm trying to root my RAZR M 4.1.2 with the MotoChopper tool, and I always get the same error message: more than one device or emulator detected. Is this because I've installed bluestacks? I'm a noob, please talk to me like I'm a mildly retarded ten year old. Thanks.
It was the bluestacks
Now I'm installing my first app requiring root, Titanium Backup, and I want the pro version. It is advertised at 5.99 which is great because I have exactly six bucks in my checking account. So I clicked the icon that says "Pro $5.99", and I am immediately transferred to an appstore page, but the little green box says $6.58. What aholes. I don't see anywhere where I can contact them about this false advertising either, but I'll keep looking.
I can't really help with the first part of this, who knows maybe the devs at Titanium Backup have started taxing customers, aholes none the less- I agree!
But with the second thought of this and with the MotoChopper tool, just to make sure do you happen to have the latest Motorola Drivers?- if not the link is here.... Also, if you happen to have any other devices that are plugged in via USB I would remove them. If this is what BlueStacks is, it really shouldn't be a problem. I would start by looking at what type of USB cable you are using, if you have alternative try it. Also, just to mention, when you open the zip of MotoChopper, make sure to Extract All Files to the DESKTOP and run the CORRECT File that I mention in the OP. If still having issues PM me, I respond faster that way. :biggrin:
Any way to root 9.20.1.XT926 ?????
unless your bootloader is unlocked.
