For those of your trying to root your Droid Razr (or Droid 3, Droid 4, Droid Bionic), here’s how to root it on the latest Gingerbread Android 2.3.6. (It should also work on all versions of Gingerbread. If you are on an older version and for some reason it didn’t work, you can follow the older root method).
UPDATE: ICS ROOT METHOD IS HERE!!!
Also, this is completely safe to do, at the worst you will have no root but should root your device so long as you are on Gingerbread.
Step 1. Go to Settings->Development->Applications and make sure “USB Debugging” is checked ON. Then connect your phone to your computer via micro-USB cable. Also make sure the USB Mode is set to “Charge Only” after you connect.
Step 2. Make sure you have Motorola drivers installed if you are using Windows (no drivers required for Mac and Linux). You can verify by going to device manager and seeing “Mot Composite ADB Interface” or something similar to it. (You can download Motorola Drivers here.)
Step 4. Unzip the file you download and double-click on run.bat for Windows and type “./run.sh” for Mac or Linux in terminal.
Step 5. After about 3 reboots, you should get “Exploit complete” and your phone should have root, Superuser app, and busybox installed.
Step 6. Congrats! Pat yourself on the back and tell 10 of your best friends about it.
