Hi,

Root works using @geohot kernel exploit. And when you root it you can use old bootloader exploit to unlock bootloader. Just unlocked my razr:)

Edit:

After reading some comments I decided to add quick walkthrough (there are other ones inside this thread, so you're not obligated to use mine;):

1. Get root exploit either from the original thread or from my dropbox.
2. You can also download bl unlocker motopocalypse.apk from my dropbox.
3. Put those files on your phone.
4. Install tr.apk and motopocalypse.apk
5. Run tr.apk, wait till it reboots your phone.
6. Check if root is working, if it does then run motopocalypse.
7. Check in fastboot more if "status code" equals "3" (turn off your phone and start it with power button + vol up pressed simultaneously).
8. If it does, you can appreciate @geohut and @djrbliss work by donating to them.

Awesome stuff i saw this mentioned in the other thread but wasnt sure if it was the real deal. I'm locked on the previous jelly bean build so i'm guessing if i now update to kitkat i can then gain root and unlock the bootloader?

I was on stock jb, updated to stock kk, then used root exploit and BL unlocker.

Downloading the KK update now! I'm so excited just hope its not going to let me down.

Just to verify will this work on a locked xt926 running JB 9.18.94?

this is extremely lucky we get two chances to unlock our boot loaders every one who still has this phone better do this while they still can i almost think Motorola made it so we could unlock again because they felt sorry for us.:laugh:

I think that too. They left us backdoor to unlock BL.

Maxx HD is the same hardware as the RAZR HD, just a bigger battery.
Okay thanks i'm downloading the xt926 version now.

When its finished do i just flash it using odin or is there something else i should use? Being stuck with a locked bootloader all this time has made me forget a few things :confused:.

As said in previous post use rds lite. Load xml file in rds and flash it. It should all go smoothly.
