First On Phone: Go To Settings>about phone>Kernel Version
If kernel is Before June 3, 2014 (like May X 2014) root with Towel Root
If kernel is After June 3, 2014 (like 29 July 2014) root with Hydrogen Peroxide (this method)
If kernel is After June 3, 2014 There is no way to unlock bootloader, but there is a partially working bootstrap recovery.
Working CWM Recovery for LOCKED 183.46.15 + Deodex and more by zachariahpope
Roms cannot be installed without an Unlocked Bootloader.

_______________

Another Root option is [ROOT] Kingo Android Root Method by xBeerdroiDx
just a temp root, then install SuperSU for Persistent Root

______________

Hydrogen Peroxide method
was created by HydrogenXS and posted in http://4pda.ru/

It Uses combination of several hacks giefroot/Towelroot, flashing an older Kernel over the Stock recovery...

I do not have a XT926, but no one else seemed to want to start the thread, so I did it.

Made a Video for the XT907 but steps should be the same for the XT926 [Video] ROOT for Droid Razr M XT907- 183.46.15

If device has system version 182.46.15 XT926
Likely will need to flash the 183.46.15 XT926 firmware first, see end of this post for RSD Lite Instructions

If Rooting Fails
Rooting of 60%+ of devices will fail until, Device is Factory Reset and/or Firmware is flashed with RSD Lite.

Rooting Instructions Long Version

(PC)-Download, Install, and verify Install Moto drivers (Motorola_End_User_Driver_Installation...)
(PC)-Download Hydrogen+PEROXIDE+1.0.0.1+XT926.apk -
shouldn't have to rename it, but it's not an .apk it's an .7z compressed file like a .zip
(PC)-Extract files from .7z(.apk) with 7zip
Connect Phone to PC
(Phone)-Enable Airplane Mode
(Phone)-Enable Developer Options
Settings/about phone/tap on Build number several times till you see developer options enabled​
(Phone) Open Developer Options (Settings/ just above About Phone)
(Phone)-Enable USB Debugging
(Phone)-Enable Allow Mock Locations
(PC)-run install_root.bat
If root stops at waiting for device: try Toggling Usb Debugging OFF/ON, or try a different usb port
Some files will be pushed and installed
You may get a popup on Phone, select allow
Phone will reboot
Phone will reboot to AP Fastboot
File will be flashed to phone
Phone will reboot
Phone will reboot
Note: If it reboots to Recovery (No Command) Flash failed and there is no point continuing, so close root tool on PC,
press both volume buttons and power to continue to recovery, release power buttons, select reboot with power button​
(Phone)-When prompted to open towelroot, connect to WiFi or Data (3G/LTE)
(Phone)-Open towelroot, select Make it Rain
towelroot will say device is rooted
Note; if it says device not supported, root failed, but you should continue with steps to reflash recovery​
(Phone)-Close towelroot
(PC)-press any key to continue
Phone will reboot, and flash recovery.img in AP Fastboot mode
phone will reboot
Root apps will be removed from Phone
(PC)-press any key to continue
Root Tool will close
Done.
Note. I left out some of the (PC)-press any key to continue​

during every reboot I disconnected USB cable from PC (may not matter)
kept in Airplane mode till i used towelroot app, turned on wifi just before using towelroot.

XT907 screenshots may change later...

rooting Error:If you see this error
"error more than one device and emulator found"
"-waiting for your device-"
"error: protocol fault (status read)"
try on PC
adb kill-server
adb devices

or
on device toggle ADB debugging OFF/ON

--------------------------------------

If you see errors at the beginning
like apk already installed
that is fine.

------------------------------------------

if root stops at or just after
" "Starting: Intent { cmp=org.keenteam/.ServiceExploitActivity } "
Disconnect USB cable, Power off Phone, Hold Volume Down Button, Press Power for ~5 secs, Release Power button, then release Volume Button.
When you see AP Fastboot Mode, reconnect usb cable
if it fails to continue within a min or so, restart Phone and Root.bat

First of all - charge your battery to 60%+
VZW_XT926_4.4.2-KDA20.62-15.1_CFC_1FF.xml.zip CFC means data is wiped
VZW_XT926_4.4.2-KDA20.62-15.1_1FF.XML.ZIP no data wipe
the files flashed should be identical but the xml script is slightly different.
If one is not working, try the other version
There are also several other flashing options in my
Motorola USB Drivers, RSD Lite, Firmware...

Editing .xml
You should only edit xml if you have tried flashing with RSD Lite and it failed.
Download firmware 183.46.15
unzip it
open file VZW_XT926_4.4.2-KDA20.62-15.1_CFC_1FF.xml with a notepad (notepad++)
locate and remove 3 following lines :

<step operation="flash" partition="partition" filename="gpt.bin" MD5="....MD5 sum here...." />
<step operation="flash" partition="tz" filename="tz.mbn" MD5="...MD5 sum here...." />
close notepad with saving changes.
Open RSD Lite and select edited .xml file to flash [email protected]k3nny2k

Got it working with my device. Locked bootloader.

If anyone is having issues, RESTORE TO FACTORY DEFAULTS first.

This was the key for me after many failed attempts.

Sorry again

Ok, so through much trouble I managed to flash 183.46.15 to the droid but now when I run hydrogen peroxide it gets stuck on the fastboot reboot. it says
device found
< waiting for device >
and just stops there. thanks in advance.

EDIT: retried on a different computer, started working past that point. waiting.
EDIT 2: Thank you so much. it actually worked.

No custom recovery or unlock bootloader currently. Once I debloated, my XT926 runs like a bat out of hell, even with 1 gig of RAM

You guys should try my post on the android development section. It's a bootstrapped CWM recovery that works on locked 183.46.15 BLs. You shouldn't flash ROMs with it, but you can flash certain mods.

    I think it worked!!!!! I downloaded the H202 and RAR right on the phone, unpacked it, used Towelroot, did the necessary rebooting, and downloaded Root Checker to check if it worked, and it said it did!!! Thanks for the help, I really appreciate it! And it was my computer's antivirus eating the tr.apk, I don't know why, but it did right after unpacking the H2O2. Putting it right on the phone just to get the tr.apk worked great though, so no problems after that.

    Thanks again!
