i got error just on this lines:

Code:
[email protected]_spyder:/data/local/12m $ /data/local/12m/debugfs -w /dev/block/mmcblk
1p20
fs -w /dev/block/mmcblk1p20                                                   <
debugfs 1.42 (29-Nov-2011)
/dev/block/mmcblk1p20: Permission denied while opening filesystem
debugfs:  cd xbin
cd xbin
cd: Filesystem not open
debugfs:  write /data/local/12m/su su
write /data/local/12m/su su
write: Filesystem not open
debugfs:  set_inode_field su mode 0104755
set_inode_field su mode 0104755
set_inode_field: Filesystem not open
debugfs:  set_inode_field su uid 0
set_inode_field su uid 0
set_inode_field: Filesystem not open

ok, found my mistake: the 2 files are copied into internal memory. I was copying them into the external sd.

I did the manual procedure and everything went well!! Now I again have the root on my razr!
4.0.4 ICS 672.180.17 en eu

Thanks to those who have allowed this!!!!!!!

GREAT!!!!

Worked flawlessly on my LATAM GSM RAZR, Blur_Version.651.167.3370.XT910.Brasil.en.BR, only tip, if you do the "rebooot" line and get a "not permitted operation" just shut down the phone and turn it back on, it won't affect nothing.

Thank you a lot OP

This is great! Much better than our root method which needs to wipe and restore the CID partition. It wasn't published because many users would have to boot via BP Tools because they would have tried it without having a p18 backup. Thx!

Rooted!

I've nearly bricked my Razr when trying to fastboot back to 2.3.6 just for rooting my phone (I'm currently on "official" ICS leak 651.167.26.XT910.Retail.en.EU OTA 2.180.17.XT910.Retail.en.EU, it cannot be fastboot back)

Thank you very much!

By the way, the 2 reboot lines should be "adb reboot" right? I wasn't able to reboot directly (permission denied) so I exit and type adb reboot instead.

    XDA user hacker812c has posted a myriad of ways for users to root their RAZRs, and it seems to be working on many different builds from many different countries.

    AFAIK, you just copy & paste Rick#2 methods.
    No development done. Not to mention a root script.

    I'm nobody to say this, but I'm sick of your "thanks reply".
    They invent the thanks button for a reason.

    You are a Noob on XDA-Developers

    Please do not let's extend this theme here.
    Your post signature is a sensitive topic too..
