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.

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!
