Root Achieved For ICS on GSM and CDMA Moto RAZR

Even though Motorola devices may have their bootloaders locked forever, that hasn’t stopped most of their devices from at least obtaining root. Recently, the Motorola Droid RAZR received an update to Ice Cream Sandwich. However, as when all devices get a new firmware update, there was the question of re-rooting the device. Thankfully, that issue has been solved.

The method, written by XDA Forum Member hacker812c will help users get root on most Motorola Devices. The original exploit was for the Droid 4 and was created by XDA Senior Member Rick#2. XDA Forum Member miloj then created the method, which was originally for the Transformer. In the words of hacker812c:

This method run in CDMA and GSM Razr…
This method run in all versions ICS 4.0.4 for Razr
This method run in all versions ICS BRAZIL and ICS Leaks
This method run in all versions ICS CHINA / 4.0.3. and 4.0.4

As far as root methods go, this one is old school. There’s no one-click available for this method yet, so users will be required to do it manually using either a Linux Terminal or a Windows Command Prompt. This is not to say that it’s difficult, but may require a little extra time for those who are used to one-click methods. For anyone having problems, there’s also a few troubleshooting tips.

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
