Default [Q] Rooting Razr Maxx XT910 JB

Guys!
I need your help!
I have a Razr Maxx XT910 retail running JB 4.1.2, I want to install the kitkat custom rom on it, so somewhere i read that i need to first root the phone, then install custom recovery CWM, then go for kitkat.

I'm stuck on the first step, Rooting
I have tried the method which includes Oracle VM VirtualBox and the JB_bionic.ova file. does not work. i tried more than 10 times and after rebooting it says update the su binary(super user update). I guess it means my phone is not actually rooted.
What should i do to get the kitkat?

I thank you guys to show my appreciation because of your time, but your recommended solution doesn't apply to my condition,
My phone is razr maxx xt910 ME retail which I upgraded myself to JB 4.1.2. The latest official version I got was 4.0.4

Now what should I do? How to root my phone??
