    For the love of God I hope someone can help me...
    I've owned and successfully (with ZERO problems) rooted OG, Droid 2, Thunderbolt, Charge, Bionic, Razr Maxx and installed custom roms on most...
    Just purchased a Razr M XT907 running 4.1.2 (all other phones broke and im not giving up unlimited data until they blackball me) and I can't root this thing to save my effin life.
    I've tried all 3 tools I've been able to find and all fail.
    Details:
    Latest Moto drivers - check
    New Moto USB cable - check
    Allow ADB Debugging / mock locations - check
    Allow unknown software sources - check
    Factory Reset - check (like 8 times)

    WTF is going on?!? It's a true pain thumbing thru 14 pages of a thread when 12 of them have NOTHING to do with the thread but I've done it numerous times and still no help. I'll donate / tip someone if they can help me root this ****er. PLEASE HELP - wifi tether is my own personal way of sticking it to the man hahaha

    If your system version is the 98.18.78 the root exploit has been patched for now I'm told a new root method is under development now. I have read (but don't know if it works ) that matt's utility's will still work to root your phone if you use option 1 again I don't know if it works but have seen a few post of people who says it does

    If it updates to 98.18.78 just use Matt's utility option 1 to fast boot back to 98.16 and then root it with the utility. Then use voodoo to protect root and temp unroot before you update. When it finishes restore root and wipe the cache. Runs fast and smooth.

    I really don't think that is a very good idea. That a good way to brick the phone. The only thing that is safe to use on the utility with the new update is installing a custom recovery.

    What am I missing?

    I've tried motochopper 1 and 1.1
    usb debug on - check
    latest drivers - check
    run as admin - check

    From what I've gathered I should be able to root.
    sys. ver. - 98.16.3.xt907.verizon.en.us
    mod. num. - droid razr m
    android ver. - 4.1.2
    build num. - 9.8.1q-78-1
    build date - wed may 29 13:16:28 cdt 2013

    I haven't tried option 1 yet because I am afraid I'll brick the phone. An unrooted phone is worth more to me than a phone I bricked.

    If you have rooted other devices you can undoubtedly root the M with Matt's utility. It is virtually impossible to brick a phone these days. I took the OTA lost root, used Matt's utility to fast boot back to version before the OTA and re rooted. All without bricking it.
    You can do it.

    So, even though I have never had root on this phone I can flash using Matt's utility and then successfully root?

    You can choose option 1
    Then choose option 5
    Then unlock boot loader
    Then flash a recovery of your choice.

    The utility posted above is not for the system version he said he is on. It's for the latest update only.

    He should be able to use Matt's 1.20 to go back and then root.

    Attempted to use Matt's 1.2 on my RAZR m and no go. Phone in ap fast boot for flash, Motorola cable, latest drivers. Computer froze. I had to reboot phone and computer. Should I attempt Matt's 1.1? Also tried to download motochopper 1.1.2 from post above, but 4share says file unavailable. Anyone have link to file that is valid?
