    I have a razr maxx and made the mistake of upgrading to 4.1.2. Now my wifi tether doesn't work. I have tried rerooting with no avail. Is there a possibility my reroot didn't work? Is there an "easy to use" root tool available? Can the phone be rolled back to to the previous os?
    I sure would be thankful for some help.

    This is a known "problem" with 4.1.2. If you search the forum you can find the answers for the tethering. (Sorry I don't have the link available.)

    To root 4.1.2 you need the razrblade utility. And no, unfortunately once on 4.1.2 you can't go back to previous versions.

    How will I know if the root worked...as I was rooted before the upgrade. Any suggestions for a wifi hotspot?

    I think there is a root checker app.

    OK, followed the steps to the letter and checked my phone with "root checker" and the device does not have proper root access. Where do I go from here?

    Maybe I will try it again. What the hell!!!
