The recently released root method for the GS5 worked on my locked Razr M running 4.4.2 KitKat.

Here's the thread for the method: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2783157



Good luck!

Works perfect on mine too. Unable to update SuperSU binary, but this isn't too important.

I'm not able to download the tr.apk!
When I clicked on the lamba, it says that there isn't any hotlinking to towelroot.com is allowed.
Can anyone help me?
Or can you just upload the apk file?

UPDATE: finally, it works for me I have root

I had that happen the first try too.
I selected Chrome as the default app for download and tried again.
Worked the second to time once the select an app screen was gone.
Unfortunately I have not been able to get SuperSU installed.
Successful root!

I'm feeling really noobish here. But how do we grant root access without SuperSU?

Good luck!

Someone from razr-hd forums said he unlocked (!) the BL after root. Seems very unlikely due to software fuses irreversible nature but worth trying

you need to re-run dan rosenberg tool, just use matt's tool http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2249773

Just a quick note, if you download the flashable supersu zip file version 1.99r4 and find the APK inside, install it and your binaries will update. Give me a few and I will check the bootloader status, but I'll be thoroughly shocked if it isn't locked.

I just checked, bootloader is locked according to fastboot. Could you link that thread?

This worked on the 4.1.2 as well... just picked up (yet another) M on .3 (no unlocked BL this time) and it worked...
