Hey guys,

I recently attempted to root my RAZR HD and it failed miserably. My device isn't bricked, but I was unable to finish the root. My biggest problem I ran into was having trouble flashing CWM recovery to my device. I was wondering what was the easiest way to do this for the RAZR HD or if there's a Toolkit with CWM recovery flashing built in? Also, in your personal opinions, what's the best 4.2 ROM for the RAZR HD and why?

Thanks guys,
Carter

I'm interested in hearing this too. I'm rooted but do not not have CWM installed, curious how to do this.

Re: Easiest Way to Flash CWM
If you want CWM you must unlock your BL through motorola. This is only possible for XT925 devices and WILL void your warranty. Then all you have to do is flash the custom recovery through fastboot. Root won't allow you to install CWM, and it can be installed without root but you need to have an unlocked bootloader.

Droid RAZR HD = XT926: bootloader CANT be unlocked. You would have to use Safestrap and a compatible ROM.
International RAZR HD = XT925 : unlockable bootloader through moto.
