A user who prefers to be known by his online handle “djrbliss” says that he has managed to discover a working root method that will affect the latest smartphones from Motorola – namely the DROID RAZR M, DROID RAZR HD, DROID RAZR MAXX HD, and the Atrix HD. There were whispers going on that this particular root method will not only work just fine with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich that ships with the devices out of the box, but will also be able to circumvent the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean leak for the DROID RAZR M. In plain English, that would mean this particular working root method will theoretically work with the final Android 4.1 Jelly Bean over-the-air update for the mentioned smartphones when the time comes.
“djrbliss” did say, “Despite my strong belief that people who are interested in rooting should buy devices with unlocked bootloaders instead of expecting the magical hackers in the sky to give out free exploits (which are in short supply), I’m once again continuing to encourage bad behavior by publishing another root exploit.”
There you have it – are you itching to root your handset now that there is a working root method, or do you prefer to keep things “original”?
