The update makes your device perform smoother but with all the bloatware stuffed in, the performance actually degrades with time. Hence it becomes essential to root your device to remove the bloatware.



Dan Rosenberg, a well known Android hacker who has released root exploits for quite a lot of devices including the LG Spectrum has also released a root exploit for the Jelly Bean OTA update of the Motorola Droid RAZR and RAZR MAZZ XT912.

The process is really easy and you can root your device using the steps given below: (This process voids the warranty of your device)

  1. Download the rooting script from DroidRzr and extract the contents of the zip file.
  2. Connect your phone to the PC with USB Debugging Enabled. To enable USB Debugging, Go to Setting>Applications>Developer options and ensure that USB Debugging is checked.
  3. Execute the file “run.bat” on Windows.
  4. If you are on Linux or OSX, execute “run.sh” using the terminal.
  5. Your phone will reboot on success.
