DROID RAZR Root Instructions, Only The Brave Need Apply

Here’s to all of you lucky-ducks who are the proud new owner of a Motorola DROID RAZR! I can imagine there are a few of you brave souls out there wanting to get just a little bit more out of your shiny new device and are looking to root already, right? If so, some dude over at Droidforums has got you covererd and has the tools needed for the task. Right now the method is only Windows operable and we’ve yet to see a custom recovery or SBF file so if you truly can’t wait to get your root on give it a try, but be warned that there is no way of going back at this point so be extra cautious.

TalkAndroid will not be held responsible for you turning something shiny and new into a useless brick. That being said, the following was taking directly from the Droidforums:

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 DooMLoRD_v2_ROOT-zergRush-busybox-su.zip and extract contents to your PC (desktop would be a good place).

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 runme.bat file and let it do its thing.

If you followed the steps correctly, your Droid RAZR should now be rooted on Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread.
