Adb will not find Motorola Droid Razr
Question for the community:
I have recently joined the Droid Razr community as a previous Droid Charge owner. I've been having a horrible time getting my device to root. (I've never had issues with any other device).
I installed the motorola drivers for Windows 7.
I am using a Verizon XT912 running android 4.0.4 ICS.
When using any of the auto-root scripts here I get "device not found".
Upon researching further into the situation, I have attempted downloading the android SDK and using the adb that comes with it. I've uninstalled all other phone drivers from Windows 7. I restarted/uninstalled motorola drivers/restarted and adb still finds no devices.
EDIT: I've also tried all the different USB ports on my computer.
I can verify adb doesn't find the droid razr by typing "adb devices" at the command prompt. Windows 7 Device Manager shows Droid Razr installed with a working driver.
Any help would be appreciated.
SOLUTION: I read the thread here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...oot+ota&page=2
after doing three million different things to my phone. Finally, I did a factory reset. When my phone reset, I did NOT set up my google account. I then made sure the USB mode was in PTP camera mode and USB debugging was on. I installed the motorola drivers from this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1539192
!!! DO NOT INSTALL THE ONES FROM MOTOROLA's website, they are pure garbage !!!. adb now recognizes my device.
A big shout out to clifference for posting what worked for him. And a big thumbs down to motorola for posting horrible drivers on their website.
This was such a large problem that I have documented it on my blog. Fix adb Droid Razr Problems
