Default New way to Root nearly all Android, also our Razr I?

Hello All
Georg Hotz released a new way to root android phones, thanks to a critical security hole in the linux kernel. See here:
Did anyone test this on his Razr I?
I don't like to try it yet on my stock phone (no way to safely backup it).

A user in our german forum tried it too and he failed.

Mine is still rooted with twerkmymoto but if anyone is interested you could contact Georg Hotz and ask him to work together with you to create an exploit for our phone, we probably will need it for the KK update (if it comes)

probably this only works on 4.3 or later.
Here didn't work too.
But Razr I is not alone, didn't work on N8000 either.
Let's wait geohot.
