    My Razr Maxx, will not root. I have tried motofail and razr root and it will not root. I have un-installed the driver and re-installed the drivers on my PC and still nothing. If someone could point me in the right direction, if you don't have an answer. If you could help, it would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks so much!

    -Cheers!

    Try executing the run.bat file as administrator. Right Click > "Run as administrator" and see if it works then. I had that problem rooting an Evo awhile ago so maybe it would fix this one as well. Also try turning off USB debugging and turning it back on. I've read that works for some people.

    Can you simply connect with adb? didn't see the check for "unknown sources" under applications mentioned either.

    I did the latest motofail on a brand new maxx this morning, it had the latest android, and worked perfectly.
