    DROID RAZR M: Everything Root

    Razr M (XT907): Everything Root

    DISCLAIMER: Razr Forums nor I are responsible for what you do to your phone. Root and ROM at your own risk.

    Install on your PC:
    RSD Lite: HERE
    ADB Drivers: HERE

    Root Your RAZR M:
    HUGE thanks to djrbliss for finding this exploit and compiling this!
    1) Have the latest ADB Drivers installed (see above).
    2) Download and extract THIS zip.
    3) Have USB Debugging enabled (Settings -> Applications -> Development).
    4) Connect your phone to the PC with a USB cable (preferably the one that came with your phone).
    5) Double click “run.bat” and follow the instructions

    Rooting Tips:
    1) If you get an error like, "run-as: Package 'com.motorola.bug2go' is unknown". You must wipe data and catch, then try again.
    2) Rooting seems to work best with a “clean” factory reset phone (Settings -> Privacy-> Factory Data Reset). All data will be removed, even stuff on your internal memory storage. If there is ANYTHING you want in there, move it to your SD card and/or onto your computer. Do basic initial set up, then root.
    3) Alternative key combination to get needed error: turn volume all the way down then hold power and volume up together. If you feel a vibration immediately, hold a few seconds longer until you get a second vibration. May have to try more than once.
    4) Some have found they need to replace the su and superuser.apk files in the extracted zip before doing “run.bat”. If the original doesn’t work, delete the su and superuser.apk files in the extracted zip and replace them the ones found HERE.

    Mac OS X users check out THIS.

    UPDATE: Root Method for 4.1.2 (4.0.4 and 4.1.1 also)
    We can all thank djrbliss for once again giving to the Android Community!

    "The Motochopper exploit is attached to this thread. It may be used as follows:
    Extract the entire contents of the zip file.
    If you are using Windows, ensure you have installed the latest Motorola USB drivers available for your phone.
    Ensure USB Debugging mode is enabled on your device.
    If you are using Windows, navigate to the extracted directory and execute "run.bat". If you are using Linux or OS X, navigate to the extracted directory in a terminal and execute "./".
    As always, future OTA updates may remove the ability to regain root access, so proceed with caution when updating. Enjoy!"

    Download at Original Thread

    Fastboot (return to stock)
    1) Download the Fastboot files from HERE. They are big files. ALWAYS CHECK the MD5 SUM! also PLEASE make sure that you are using the correct fastboot files for the version of android you are running!
    2) Have drivers installed (see above).
    3) Download and install RSD Lite (see above).
    4) open RSDLite
    5) Enter Fastboot mode on phone
    • power down phone
    • hold volume up+volume down+power until the menu shows up
    • use volume down to highlight AP Fastboot and press volume up to select it
    • do this quickly or phone auto reboots
    6) Connect phone to PC
    7) Select your phone. It will be in line 1 and most likely say fastboot in the model name.
    8) Click the "..." then select the fastboot file that you downloaded
    9) Then select uncompress and flash
    The whole process may take up to 15 minutes so don't freak out.. in fact just walk away and come back. Messing with the phone/cord during the the flashing process can end in disaster!

    mattlgroff has so kindly made utilities for the RAZR M: HERE
    1.10 will root 4.04 AND 4.1.1 but will ONLY fastboot 4.1.1
    1.20 will root 4.0.4-4.1.2, fastboot 4.1.2 ONLY, and unlock your bootloader (see below for more details)

    Custom ROMs:
    1) MUST be rooted (see above).
    2) You need SafeStrap. Get the latest SS for the RAZR M HERE (current version 3.12). Learn how to install and use SafeStrap HERE.

    Known RAZR M Custom ROM List:
    Working on this now. These are listed in no particular order. The best way, to stay up to date with your favorite ROM, is to follow the developer on Twitter.
