Thanks I will try it out when I get home. Trying to root a friends M I did my HTC M8 and used TWRP on it. Would you know of a good stock looking debloated ROM. Thanks

Would the same recovery I used for mine work for a Razr M or are they device specific?

They are device specific. Is your friend's M unlocked?

Just a heads up, if he's on the latest build you won't be able to unlock his BL.

The build number says 9.8.1Q-94. If the bootloader can't be unlocked can the above still be done minus the bootloader part. Sorry if these are dumb still new to all this

You can't unlock on the last 2 updates, .94 being the latest. You won't be able to use a true custom recovery, but you can root with Safe Root. Then, you can use Safe Strap to make backups and load some ROMs.
