I just lost root access on my XT912. I have been notified of the recent update but have been ignoring it because my phone is flashed for Page Plus. I installed and uninstalled Superuser because SuperSU is installed. Could that have done it?

i had the same problem. I eventually had to use Matt's utility to reinstall stock ROM and root the phone (I did not install SS using Matt's utility). Then I installed SS 3.65 while in stock ROM. Then you can use VooDoo RootKeeper to backup root, then accept the OTA update, and finally use VooDoo RootKeeper to restore root. Worked great for me.

The ROM is stock Android 4.1.2. The flash was just to "fool" Page Plus (a Verizon MVNO) into thinking the Razr is a 3G phone since Page Plus does not allow 4G phones.
