How To Root a Droid Razr Maxx Running Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS)
Root Droid Razr Maxx
I was having heaps of trouble finding a functional root method for my Motorola Droid Razr Maxx. It seemed that all of them were for people who didn’t have Ice Cream Sandwich – also called ICS or Android 4.0. My phone was running Android 4.0.4. I’ve learned over my time with Android that these differences matter, so I wasn’t about to mess around with a root exploit for an older Android version. After a great deal of hunting, though, I found something.
The efforts explained here were good, once I realized that they weren’t going to work on Windows 8. I tried all the tricks I know around compatibility, administrator privileges, etc. The batch file never ran properly. It worked like a charm on my Windows 7 laptop, though.
