    Lightbulb [HOW TO] Root your Motorola Droid RAZR [Windows Only]













    DISCLAIMER: RAZR Forums or myself will not be responsible if you happen to brick your device during this root process. Please proceed at your own risk.

    Windows Only -

    Step 1: Download and install Motorola Drivers for your Windows PC (this doesn’t work on other operating systems): 32-bit or 64-bit.


    Step 2: Download Dan Rosenberg's Motofail exploit zip file and extract the contents where you will easily find them.


    Step 3: From your Droid RAZR’s homescreen, tap Menu button and enable USB Debugging from Settings > Applications > Development.


    Step 4: Connect your Droid RAZR with your PC and select Charge Only option from notifications drawer.


    Step 5: Navigate to where the folder you unzipped in Step 2 to and open the folder and click on the run.bat file and let it do its thing.


    If you followed the steps correctly, your Droid RAZR should now be rooted on Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread.

    For anyone who is rooted... have you by chance tried to swap out your Gmail with a themed version? If you have, are you getting black text on a very dark background?
