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.
