Crazy hacker,

You should really read the previous couple of posts. In post #248 I point out that I had a similar problem. Did you try to use Matt's Root Recovery script?

If you havent, Follow the link to a post of mine in the General section of this forum where I explain how I got back root using this script.

Root Restore when root is incomplete after JB update OTA

It's helped a couple of other so far. I've done nothing new, just following the OP in this thread and saved my system with Matt's work. Kudos to them for there hard work getting us to this point!

The "Matt Root Restore" process worked for me. I was glad to read biKF's post and save my root after upgrading to JB. I had tried upgrading OTA after using Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper, and I ended up with a "1/2 rooted JB". I found the SU backup in the /system/usr directory, and assume that's what we mena when we say 1/2 rooted. It might be because when I used OTA Rootkeeper, after making a backup of SU with Rootkeeper, I didn't do the next step of "temporarily hiding root". Afterwards I read somewhere someone saying that you had to do that extra step in order to protect root going from ICS to JB over the air. I don't plan to test that theory now that I'm on JB. Hopefully someone confirms that doing the 2 steps in VooDoo OTA Rootkeeper is successful in going from ICS 4.04 up to JB over the air.

Re: ROOT for Razr HD
The proper steps are

Root
Voodoo backup root
Voodoo temp unroot
OTA update
Voodoo restore root.

You always have to temporarily unroot after you protect and before you upgrade or its pointless.

What's the difference between this and using DROID RAZR HD Utility 1.10?

Re: ROOT for Razr HD
The utility just has everything is one place and you don't need RSD Lite.

Matt's Restore Root script worked for me too. So happy I didn't have to reload everything. Thank you for sharing this.

Does this help?

Did it work for anyone else?

I have a VZW xt926 with 4.1.1, and lost root during the OTA update because I forgot to temp unroot. I still had Superuser installed the whole time I was not rooted (I guess I was half-rooted). So I been reading XDA for last few weeks, and today I came across this post and decided to try the restore root script posted here and to my surprise, I am now fully rooted again!!! All I did was run the script after extraction, (of course with the prerequisites... usb drivers installed, Debugging enabled, etc.) When the script ran it said it could not find a backup of SU or SuperSU (not unusual b/c I removed it long ago) but installed the copy of SuperSU that was included in the package. After it finished, phone rebooted and all was well again. However I didn't want conflicts between the two SU apps so I froze, not uninstall, SuperSU using Root Uninstaller. So far no problems.

Thank you for finding this info and posting it. There isn't enough thanks I can express in this post to show how much I really appreciate it!!!

Re: ROOT for Razr HD
XT926 = no (except for developer edition) XT925 = yes.
