How To Root the Motorola Droid Razr (Updated for ICS RAZRs as well)
Confirmed Working: Motorola Version. 6.11.748.XT912.Verizon.en.US
NOTE: This root method was performed on a CDMA (Verizon) Droid Razr. GSM is listed as being supported by this method as well (but we cannot confirm that).
Before You Begin:
- This method of rooting requires a Windows PC.
- You will need to have ADB properly set up on your computer. If you are not set up with Android SDK please CLICK HERE
Downloading The Necessary Files:
- Go to http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1341578
- Download the USB drivers from Motorola.
- Download the latest version of ZERGRUSH by DooMLoRD (you may want to visit DooMLoRD’s actual thread to ensure you have the latest version).
- If you have Ice Cream Sandwich, use this file in place of the Zergrush file from Doomlord above instead.
Installing USB Drivers:
- Install the Motorola drivers via the .exe file you have downloaded.
- Reboot (this may not be required but is always a good idea).
Connecting Your Phone:
- On your phone, go to Settings > Applications > Development > and make sure “USB Debugging” is checked.
- Connect the Droid Razr to your computer and select “Charge Only” as the USB connection method.
- Open a command prompt and type in “adb devices” (without the quotes). You should get a return listing your Droid Razr. If you see “device not found” then adb is not properly set up.
- Unzip the DooMLoRD file you downloaded (I recommend making a new folder but it doesn’t matter where you put the unzipped files as long as they are in the same directory).
- Double click the “RUNME.bat” file
- Your device will now reboot and you have root access!
