    I have a Motorola Razr HD (XT925) which I am trying to root and unlock the boot loader so that I can upgrade from ICS to JB. I have tried several rooting programs from XDA as well as The Unlockr. Motofail2go always indicates exploit failed and then says root complete. With the Razr tools my phone reboots to the Android symbol with a red exclamation on it.
    The unlockr seems to have worked but when I use the Rom tool it tells me that the phone needs to be rooted and it has not found SU. This is getting very strange.

    Is rooting the XT926 and different than the XT925?
