Default Help

I did a factory data reset via settings/privacy and it didn't unroot my device, which is both upsetting and immensely satisfying lol. I love being rooted but I need this update. So I tried voodoos ota rootkeeper to temp unroot and install the update and it still didn't work. I love being rooted but I need this update and I don't have a computer anymore. How can I unroot without a computer? And I need a FULL factory data reset back to stock out of box state because I don't understand what's not letting the update install. Need a clean slate. I saw some apps on play store that offer 1 click unroot. Do they work? Could I just temp unroot with voodoos ota rootkeeper and factory reset via settings/privacy? Please help me I'm lost now.

Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper will work perfectly!! Install app, verify it likes your "root"!! It will offer a Google Play Store option when you check apps status, it is not needed, if everything is checked, temp unroot, root, repeat so that a "protected" root copy is saved!! Then temp unroot, take OTA update, reboot, got to Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper and restore root!! PROFIT!!

I just bought this phone and just received the 11.21.13 OTA Update on my Razr MAXX. I tried to root using Saferoot, and no go. Any ideas?!? Very frustrating..

Use Matt's utility to root device, will root latest update with no issues!! Having issues taking update?? Option 2 in Matt's utility will reflash stock 4.1.2, and KEEP existing data!! Now you can take update, root or reroot phone as needed!! Either way Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper should be installed to keep "protected" root ("su binary") copy on device!! 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.
Thanks,
mepaulk

This update made my device very slow and the google search function does not work anymore. Going to try factory reset, if that does not work will go back and reflash prior version and not take the update.
