Have posted link to Matt's utility!!
Does this mean a Droid Razr Maxx, that has never been rooted, and has just gotten the OTA 98.72.165.en.US, be rooted using Matt's utility? I have been holding off on installing the update, as I want to root my phone. I had the impression the existing root methods would not work after the latest update, unless the phone was already rooted, root saved with Voodoo, then take the PTA update, and finally reroot.
I have not had an opportunity to perform a root, as I keep reading various forms about rooting, and have not been able to decide which is the latest, and simplest method. I have become confused about the differences between Matt's utility, drbliss's, and Razorblade, etc, etc.and which to use.
Any comments about the above will be greatly appreciated.
