Custom Recovery, One-Click ICS Root for RAZR and MAXX
Not long ago, we brought you news that the Motorola Droid RAZR ICS update was rooted. This not only allows users who upgrade to get root again if they lose it, but also allows users just buying the device to root it for the first time. It is always good to see root methods obtained for new versions of Android on a popular device. However, that is not the end of the story for the Droid RAZR. There is now also a one click root solution and custom recovery specifically for the device’s ICS update.
Developed by XDA Recognized Contributor pedrotorresfilho, the one click method does as its name implies. Based on the root method mentioned above, the one click method simply requires users to plug in the device and run the script. This is especially helpful for those who aren’t comfortable using Command Prompt or Terminal commands.
As if that weren’t enough, thjere is now a custom recovery specifically made for Droid RAZR ICS users. XDA Senior Member hacker812c created an unofficial port of ClockworkMod Recovery for the Droid RAZR that works for ICS. This allows users to flash ROMs safely after upgrading, without having to worry about compatibility issues. Combined with the one-click root method, Droid RAZR users can get root and recovery at the drop of a hat. Additionally, these methods will work with both the GSM and CDMA variants of the RAZR, but users need to be sure they download the correct files for their devices.
For more info and full instructions, you can find the root method in the one click thread and the ICS recovery in the recovery thread.

So, I opened up T-Mobile's default "Device Unlock" app , pressed unlock, and placed my AT&T SIM card in the device. Everything seemed to be working fine: strong signal, great LTE, good voice calls - until day 3. On Sunday, my Galaxy S6 felt very hot to the touch and...
Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
