    no joy on rooting

    used the 1.41 version to root my maxx a couple of weeks ago, the screen went bad after a few days, just recieved a replacment phone. The new phone has the same firmware as before 2.3.6 6.12.173.xt912 etc. but using 1.42 doesn't get beyond launching dameon then stalls out. ver 1.41 with patch says it can not find the folders or paths to install everything to root as before.

    followed same instructions but no root?

    something modified from Moto on this warrentry phone replacment to thwart rooting?

    Serious frustration, first off I had a rooted x, the wife got suckered into this deal of buying two Samsung charges, had to install winwar to root that, my company just bought me a razr maxx and for the life of me I can't root it, I've installed, uninstalled the drivers multiple times, downloaded 1.42, it comes up a winwar archive file, extracted it now it's a winwar batch file, usb is enabled, charge mode is enabled, when I click on the utility, yellow Batman appears, hook my phone up, drivers install, pick option 2, and it just sits at deawon successfully installed, and that's it. Is the winwar cursing me or is there something I'm missing, any help would be appreciated.

    Enable USB Debugging in the Settings>Applications>Development menu and have the phone plugged in as charge only.

    If they doesn't work reinstall thedrivers and restart.

    I had already rooted my phone before the 2.3.6 OTA upgade came out using the script above. Worked great!

    Unthinkingly, when the upate offer arrived on my phone, I accepted the OTA. :blink:

    RESULT: I now have a functional 2.3.6 RAZR BUT NO ROOT! My phone reboots into Fastboot, and Clockwork Mod Recovery appears, but NO ROOT! I attemptyed to “re-root" using the same script, but my Command window running the script looks like this:

    —————————————————————

    At the end of the script, my RAZR rebooted BUT NO ROOT! How do I get back to “stock” so I can reroot??? Can I use Clockwork Mod
    Recovery (which is running on every reboot/restart of the phoen) to get back to boot?

    I’m totally stumped. My phone isn’t bricked and works fine, but I WANT ROOT (again)! :p
    Thanks for any help that anyone can give.

    Awesome utility, first of all...

    One question - ran #1 on my Maxx - everything seems to have worked fine, but it gave me errors on sending mbm and mbmloader, "command write fail, no such file/directory" (or some verbiage close to that). Based on how it seems now, I'm assuming that's ok - especially since it was a "no such file/directory" error... but I wanted to throw that out here and find out for sure.

    Thanks in advance, and a beer (or two!) is headed your way. I couldn't get rsdlite to work quite right, even with the oem fix, but this worked perfect... (well, I guess anyway, hence my question! ;))

    Yea it kind of happens sometimes. Those aren't important for restoring, so you are good to go!

    Thank you :D

    You should download this utility and run option 1 to restore. ;)

    OK quick stupid question: how do I set up my phone to use this utility program? Do i just have to plug my phone into the computer or do i have to do some kind of button combination and select something before hooking my phone to the comp? The reason I ask is that I just got my replacement Razr today and its already on .173 out of the box. Thanks in advance.

    You just plug your phone in with it turned on as normal, make sure you have the drivers installed on your computer of course. And you need to have USB debugging turned on, and when you plug your phone in you choose PC Mode I believe.

    You are using the latest version correct? I can go grab a cable and double check that it is supposed to be on PC Mode I could be wrong on that. Have you tried other modes to see if it finds the phone?

    Man not sure on that one. Maybe try and download the latest version again, redownload the drivers from the main page, open the Razr Utility again (Run As Admin) just in case, put the phone in charge only mode, and try again (again make sure USB debugging is turned on).
