For ICS, here's NOOB-PROOF, FAIL-PROOF, video tutorials for Windows, Mac and Linux:

Windows Droid Razr ICS Root

Mac Droid Razr ICS Root

Linux Droid Razr ICS Root

Download Rooting files (for all Windows, Mac, and Linux!)

All exploit credits goto XDA user DJrBliss Dan Rosenberg! and no one else.

=========BELOW IS FOR Android 2.3.6==================================
Here's root + recovery for Win Mac and Linux on Gingerbread Android 2.3.6 (should work on all Gingerbread)

Sorry YouTube terminated my account, you can still see step-by-step photos here on my site.



Download for Windows:
http://downloadandroidrom.com/file/D...il_windows.zip

Download Mac/Linux: (DO ./run.sh in terminal)
http://downloadandroidrom.com/file/D..._linux_osx.zip

Drivers for Windows:
http://downloadandroidrom.com/file/D...iver_5.2.0.exe

=========BELOW IS OLD==================================
I simply modified the original here and re-wrote it for Linux and Mac.

Video tutorial:



No drivers needed for Mac and Linux!

Download files here:
http://downloadandroidrom.com/file/D...otMacLinux.zip

Open up a terminal in your computer and use cd command to browse to the DroidRazrRootMacLinux directory:

cd Downloads/DroidRazrRootMacLinux

For Linux, type:

sh runmelinux.sh

or

sudo sh runmelinux.sh

For Mac, type:

sh runmemac.sh

That's it!

=========ABOVE IS OLD==================================

Hi...sorry for the noob-ish question, but when I type this command into my Mac terminal, I get the following error message:

-bash: cd: Downloads/DroidRazrRootMacLinux: No such file or directory

Now, the downloaded file is DEFINITELY in my Downloads folder, so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I was able to follow directions pretty well when I rooted my Thunderbolt using the terminal and some adb commands. Do you have any thoughts you might want to share? I appreciate your help.

Never mind. I don't mind admitting I'm an idiot. I went ahead and unzipped the downloaded file and all is right with the world. I'm the proud owner of a rooted Razr. Thanks for your work on this, and thanks for sharing.

Hi Doctocete, I have removed the recovery portion from my thread now as nitro has a working package, he wants to create his own thread for it and have it stickied.

I can't get the method to work on my new Droid Razr from my Mac. All I get is a message on the bash screen - "daemon started successfully" - Then nothing. I opened the file, checked all the comments - unplugged and re-started my USB cable (charge only) - no activity. Thoughts?
