[INSERT TYPICAL DISCLAIMER] I will not, can not, and shall not be held responsible for acts of durr. These instructions are fairly easy to follow and involve a little bit of android adb knowledge and a few fastboot commands. If you can not grasp them in about 30s reading, please, pay someone to perform this task for you and do NOT risk bricking your phone. Your warranty is now void, and all damage can, and may, be permanent. Thank you.

So, after fiddling around with trying to get the downgrade to ICS working, then rooting, then saving it up to JB, I said screw it and tried the method used on samsungs and it works. Lovely.

EASY TOO!

All you need, is...

1) Unlocked bootloader. If you don't have this, and aren't willing to have this, leave now.

2a) epinter's CWM recovery -- http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1973904
2b) CWM / TWRP for the XT926 developer edition

3) Chainfire's SuperSU (Donate to this guy, he does a **** ton for the android community! ) -- http://download.chainfire.eu/298/SuperSU/

The process is SIMPLE.

Follow epinter's fastboot directions for installing cwm on your XT925 or the instructions for CWM/TWRP for the xt926 (Haven't tested, only have a 925) and from there, install the SuperSU package from your SD Card. Reboot, test, done.

As of time of writing, the current and 100% functional version of SuperSU is v0.99, I can not guarantee earlier version will work, however I assume that later ones will.

Did you find a way to unlock the XT926?

You are not your iPhone 5

Xt926 cannot be unlocked unless you have the developer edition. Also there is a CWM and TWRP recovery for us (xt926 developer) so I would fast boot flash that instead of the one for XT925. Otherwise, awesome thread.

First the developer edition has to bought outright, they don't sell it with contracts. Also right on the kevlar backplate it says developer edition.

Re: [Root]Root your XT925/XT926 running Jelly Bean
Is there a root available for the Motorola razr maxx hd version xt926 on 4.1.1 ? If not, will there be? I see conflicting messages in forums regarding if there is a method thats effective or not. I see using a utility 1.0 method, another where u go back to ics and root but I don't want a brick so please help clarify. Thank u

This is the only available method for the xt926 on Verizon. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=33610625

You won't brick your phone.

Let me clarify

The root package will work on ANY phone running jelly bean.

The trick is getting CWM/TWRP/Any insecure recovery installed first.

If you can flash .zip's you can install this root method.

I've updated the post since the xt926 is different, and I was tired and lazy before.
