Have rooted two droid bionics and three razr, ALL with no problems. This last Razr that I got I just cant seem to get it to root. Noticed that its installing the files to the phone, but read only. Is there some update that motorola or verizon put on this latest one that is preventing the root. Also notice that after I extracted the files, theres no run/bat file , just a run file.
