Default RAZR i Root 2 (Jellybean 4.1.2)

Since the ICS root files fail to work on Jellybean, needed to work with new files to make it work. This is based off the open-source ChainsDD Superuser 3.2 (RC) x86 version, with an update-binary from the RAZR i to make sure it flashes.

On top of this, I added a live to remove /system/etc/install-recovery.sh. This is because whenever the phone booted, it removed CWM, and thats definitely not something we wanted it to do! So all is well. This file (RAZRiRoot2.zip) is included in the new Jellybean Vodafone (FR) Homemade fastboot of mine also. Its less automated for rooting since the boot.img method is weird with Windows drivers...

Anyway, here we go.

Requirement(s):
Unlocked Bootloader on Jellybean

Download:
http://batakang.com/ftp/RAZRi/RootUt...RAZRiRoot2.zip

Instructions:
Flash this in CWM to root any Jellybean RAZR i firmware.

Same here for me

Edit - I was able after some trial and error to boot into CWM using ADB and flash this. The problem is that CWM is lost and wont work after I reboot to bootloader/normal powerup. If I want to ever boot into CWM 'on-the-go' it is now impossible. Each time i wish to use CWM i have to plug in and re-flash using ADB. Flippin' weird if you ask me.

The flash tool required root. Fastboot it yourself

After fastboot flash recovery cwm.img, how do we boot it? For me it flashes without error then boots to stock recovery.

You choose Recovery from fastboot, then flash the RAZRiRoot2.zip.

If you boot normally then it will wipe CWM, since the root zip never ran to remove the install-recovery.sh

I have used:
from windows cmd, with USB debugging on

adb reboot bootloader

fastboot.exe flash recovery recovery-razri-tryAtouch.img

fastboot.exe reboot-bootloader

selected recovery and installed the RAZRiRoot2.zip from external storage card.

now rebooted and my Jelly Bean is rooted and CWM remained the recovery

is there any way to get supersu working instead of superuser app? some apps are only working with supersu somehow... e.g. light manager.. light manager needs root to work with some apps, but the superuser app does never recognize light manager attempts.... any idea?
