This is a droid razr m xt907 with 183.46.15 and kernel from July 2014. Installation failed. It got successfully to the reboot to fastboot but fastboot didn't come up. It also gave a message "can't find tr.apk".

I tried disconnecting the usb, power off, boot to fastboot. It wrote files but didn't prompt for starting towelroot.
I tried reinstalling a few times but it no longer would write the files using fastboot and still didn't prompt for towelroot.

I saw that tr.apk was towelroot. I installed it on the phone and the root installation succeeded.

Towelroot said it was rooted but I'm wondering how to verify that it is?

And thanks.

if you have an unlocked bootloader, use TWRP to flash SuperSU.zip

I just wanted to post here saying that by following sd_shadow's guides to upgrade the system version from 182.46.15 to 183.46.15, rooting with hydrogen peroxide, and installing the sunshine app, I can definitively say with proof that all droid razr m's are now free forever. I took the leap of faith with 25$ to see if the unlock would work with sunshine, unlocked the phone with no problems, flashed twrp, and am now currently flashing cm12.1.

    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)

    Note: If your device has 182.45.15, you likely need to flash 183.45.15 firmware with rsd lite.

    Root Info
    This method was created by HydrogenXS and posted @ http://4pda.ru/

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

    This does not unlock the bootloader,
    there is no practical way to unlock the bootloader once the kernel /bootloader is newer than June 3, 2014 (July 29)
    There is no custom Recovery without an Unlocked Bootloader, no custom Recovery, no Custom Roms
    So stop asking

    If you have a XT926 see ROOT for Droid Razr HD XT926- 183.46.15 w/Kernel newer than June 3, 2014


    Changelog
    15 March 2015; Added: If you have a XT926 on 183.46.15 see Post #80

    Toubleshooting

    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

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

    If Rooting fails try
    Perform a Factory Data Reset (Device Powered Off) - DROID RAZR M by MOTOROLA - Verizon page
    or
    Flashing Firmware
    There are several options for flashing Firmware/FXZ

    yessir, it was at

    motofirmware.center

    and the xml says prepaid once you load it into rsd lite, the the box on the top right
    Yes, I figured it out, motofirmware.center lost their server a few weeks ago, and that file had not been re-uploaded but I found another mirror.
