Thanks! Mirror link #2 posted in the OP for #11.
Thanks for updating that KaChow. One quick question. I have my rooted device running fine now except for one thing. I went to Google Play to download Vlingo and it didn't show up in a search. I went to the website for Vlingo to request a download link to be sent to my phone. When I went to download, it said "I see you're running Android v1.x, this app only works with v2.0 and above". So, it seems it didn't show up in Google Play because it was not a comaptible app. Is there something I'm missing here that makes my phone look like its running Android v1.x? I've done a quick search and haven't found anything yet.
Since, you are installing an app that does not appear in the Play store, try this. Go into Settings> Security> Unknown sources and check the box, and try to download the app again.

I already have unknown sources allowed. The problem is that the systems, both Vlingo's website and Google Play think my phone is running android v1.x. Even with unknown sources allowed, Google Play won't even let me see the Vlingo app in a search, it filters it out.
KaChow thanks for this guide to root...everything seems to work fine except loading the delta-ota-Blur_Version.0.7.2-9.1.41.XT926.Verizon.en.US.zip update. I keep getting E:Error in /tmpsideload/package.zip
(status 7). Is this an easy fix or should I start over?
Unfortunately, this is not an easy fix. This delta-ota-Blur_Version.0.7.2-9.1.41.XT926.Verizon.en.US.zip is extremely touchy and feelly and Motorola does not like the fact that we can root our phones. For the smoothest upload, it occurs from a "Clean-Slate", which that is a complete start over from step 1. I try to emphasize not to spend too much time uploading apps that you'll use on a regular basis, but rather get the basics and the root apps first and then start doing the updates. The 0.7.2 update is always nice and smooth, but again this delta-ota-Blur_Version.0.7.2-9.1.41.XT926.Verizon.en.US.zip is too sensitive and for some reason if this update is kicked out it seems as though the system locks up, causing you to redo again. Some have been successful taking the JB 4.1.1 update via OTA, but if it fails, it will not go through again (this is what I've experienced,) which the result is a complete startover. But for the most part this update via delta-ota-Blur_Version.0.7.2-9.1.41.XT926.Verizon.en.US.zip , works if you just run it through. Most installs vary between 20 to 60 minutes, start to finish, if it takes much longer than that, reduce the amount of apps that your downloading from the store.
Just wanted to post up that this tutorial (and KaChow's help) worked perfectly for me. Having never performed root before I was a bit unsure but I'm flying high now and thrilled to have completed this.
Although just looking at the instructions it appears to be a long and drawn out process, in reality it wasn't so bad at all. I was going extremely slow to ensure I hit all the points. I would estimate I could perform this in around 20 minutes or less. (outside of downloading Matt's Utility which downloads quite slow)
Thanks again to all that really dig and push forward with this stuff. You allow folks like myself to enjoy the spoils of your hard work and I am very grateful.
The OP has been updated, revisions were needed to keep the language flowing for everyone. In addition I have included instructions to install the new JB update 4.1.2 via OTA and by download installation through Recovery. The goal of this thread is still to keep Root on the XT926 Razr/Maxx HD as simple as possible, with detailed instructions to eliminate the guess work. If considering updating to 4.1.2, please read through some of these other posts and weighing the pros and cons before moving forward.
There is NO ROOT AVAILABLE IN 4.1.2 on the XT926/Razr/Maxx HD
Ok thanks, I bet thats the problem it's trying to install and update all the Apps while I'm trying to do this...Gonna retry again!
:hail:KaChow is the man!! Thanks again I got it to go through!!:icon_ banana:
The verizon rep updated my phone in-store before giving it to me. So, now I've got 4.1.2 v9.16.6.XT926 and .. I can't root, huh? :-/
Any idea if/when a root might become available?
Unless I'm misinformed you can still go back to ICS and root, no?

I got the Droid Razr HD Utility v1.10 package. I tried to install the drivers, but it says my current ones are already more advanced, so I skipped that. I ran the batch file, got the phone into fastboot, and began the revert process. The batch file did its thing, but the phone had several lines of output that said "so and so failed" (I'll get an exact copy if it'd help), and though it does erase the userdata and force me through the setup process again, it's still 4.1.2; it doesn't actually flash back to ICS.
