Best Course of Action for Rooting
I just got a Motorola Razr Maxx HD (XT912) off Craigslist ($50). The specs are below:
system version: 98.72.16
Kernel: Feb 1, 2013
Build Date: Feb 1, 2013
I received a notice that there is a software update to 98.72.165
Reading briefly within the forums, looks like there is a newer version (9.30.1)?
I would like to root, install TWRP, and maybe add a custom ROM.
I see that there is a root method now available for the latest version, but should I root now (and what is the most successful method), or install the OTAs, and then root?
I do not intend on using this as phone, just as a wifi device for my son (finally retiring the Charge).
