Rooting the Motorola Razr XT910 may be easier than you think, but is it worth the risk?
Overall, rooting provides expanded functionality for smartphone users and gives them a greater level of control than they receive when they unbox their device.
Despite the fact it bills itself as the “open” platform, Android devices have a reputation for being a little tricky to root. One popular Android phone, the powerful and attractive Motorola Razr XT910 has largely resisted attempts to root it, but users have found a quick, simple and effective way to crack the handset.
This method is easy to implement, even if you’ve never rooted a phone before in the past and don’t consider yourself technologically inclined.
Now, if you want to proceed, remember rooting can be risky, and we aren’t responsible for any damages incurred by your phone in your attempt to hack its OS. It’s also important to note that rooting procedures are only going to work for the device they were designed for, which means you should only follow procedures specifically outlined for the Motorola Razr XT910 if you have this device.
To root a Motorola Razr XT910 you need a computer with Windows installed that has USB Debugging enabled. You also want to make sure your Razr XT910 has a fully charged battery, as you don’t want it running out of juice in the middle of your root.
In a lot of ways rooting your device is the same as installing a new version of the OS, and having your phone die during the process can cause some serious problems. You also want to make sure your device has all of the most recent updates of its drivers.
As for the rooting itself, all you need to do is download the right program to match your OS (Zergush V2 by DoomLord for Gingerbread, or Root ICS+ for Ice Cream Sandwich) and then follow the instructions provided by the maker of those files, and you will be on your way to rooting your Motorola Razr XT910.
