[Q] Rooting and ROMS on Motorola XT910 Razr
Hi Newbie with first post so please forgive any errors.
XT910 Razr, System version 982.124.14.XT910.Retail.en.EU, Android 4.1.2 Baseband u_04.10.00R, Kernel3.0.8-g7198280, Build 9.8.20-124_SPUEM-14
My PC is Running PCLinuxOS X64 Minime 2014 fully updated

What I want to achieve is a clean phone with no bloatware and best battery life with full functionality (UK phone).
I was wondering if just rooting the phone will be the best method or is there a better ROM I could try and install?
I have tried rooting it with help from a VID from TheRazrGuy but when running the virtualbox tinycore it loops including the text "eth1: Detected Tx Unit Hang."
Also the linked Motorola Drivers are .msi files (Windows installer files)
I should also mention that I was told this device has been rooted, AVG says "Unsecure privileged mode detected" but "Root Checker Advanced" says "You don't have root access"
Any thoughts much appreciated.
