Earlier today, we posted about the Droid RAZR & RAZR MAXX root tool for Windows. Now Linux and Mac OS X users can also root their devices using the tool. It’s still in early alpha stage and may have some issues yet to be ironed out. However, if it does not work it won’t harm your device either, it will still remain unrooted. If it works, you will have a rooted device. Worth the effort, right? Here are the download links following by instructions on how to root:
Use razr_blade.zip for OSX and Linux to Root Droid RAZR & RAZR MAXX
Before you Begin
- Make sure you have device drivers installed on your Mac / Linux machine.
- USB Debugging should be enabled on your device.
- Make sure you have Smart Actions fully installed, unfrozen and unmodified.
- Your device should not be in mass storage mode.
Step 1: Download the root files from this thread: Razr blade OSX-Linux.zip
Step 2: After downloading the appropriate zip file, extract it on your computer.
Step 3: Connect your device to the computer via USB cable.
Step 4: Run the razr_blade.sh file.
Step 5: Follow on screen instructions to complete the root process.
This will root Jelly Bean 4.1.2 on RAZR MAXX / Droid RAZR devices.
