How To Unroot the Motorola Droid Razr

DISCLAIMER: This method of unrooting is ONLY to be used if you used our root procedure! This script is specifically designed to undo the changes that DooMLoRD’s root script made. If you used another root method and you use this unroot method, you may brick your device!

Before You Begin:

  1. You must have used our root procedure using DooMLoRD’s script (just trying to be crystal clear here)!

Download Files:

  1. Go To: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1319653
  2. Scroll down until you see the unroot section of DooMLoRD’s post and follow the link listed (currently it is labeled “read this” as seen below and points to http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=18879974#post18879974 but could be changed with time).

Connecting Your Phone:

  1. On your phone, go to Settings > Applications > Development > and make sure “USB Debugging” is checked.
  2. Connect the Droid Razr to your computer and select “Charge Only” as the USB connection method.
  3. 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.

Unroot:

  1. 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).
  2. Double click the “runme-UNROOT.bat” file
  3. Your device will now reboot and you will no longer have root access and the Superuser app should be removed.

If this procedure helped you, please consider donating to the original developer or at least sending them a thank you.

Now that you are rooted, head here to learn some of the fun things you can do!
