Another All-In-One Rooting & Hacking Utility, This Time For Motorola Droid RAZR Users
They hit the portal now and then: utilities that combine all major functions needed to hack a device. Though this news might not be of interest for you simply because you don’t have a Droid Razr, it is definitely great news for proud owners of their, according to Motorola “impossibly thin”, Droid Razr. XDA member mattlgroff has come up with a program which basically does everything that’s needed to enjoy all of the goodness that comes from the XDA forums and around. Whether it is a simple reboot, root for Ice Cream Sandwich or install Bootstrap Recovery app – this tool will have it for you. It also comes with a restore function, which normally takes a few manual steps.
Both GSM (XT910) and CDMA (XT912) Droid RAZR’s are supported and the packages come in two flavors: Full and Lite. Although mattlgrof released this tool for Windows operating systems only, XDA senior member sevenup30 was able to convert the script to work on Linux/Apple too. This script hasn’t been tested thouroughly, so any feedback would be welcome for the developer. Continue on to the RAZR utility thread to start downloading!
