    Have you tried Razrs Edge? Ive used it a few times after FXZ to 905. Hit the link below and give it a shot.

    Click File in the upper left, then Download. Just to clarify because google docs can be a bit confusing with the way its set up...

    I literally just used this on .905. If your still having a problem, try this version of motofail...

    I'm having the same issue...Razr's Edge and Motofail-gb do not work.

    Even tried a factory reset.

    Razors edge should have worked same with motofail. AHow do you know it did not work? is there an app call super user on your phone?
  6. and tried motofail-GB which sent my antivirus crazy saying it was a trojan ( incidentally my wife's email was hacked at the same time as I was trying to use this ...coincidence?)
    I also tried Razrs and got nothing. but this

    so what else can I do ? I tried to DL the whole zip file but had to DL them separately I then put them into the same file folder.
    could that be the problem? is there another place to DL the zip file as a whole?

    really want to get root back! I hate all the damn bloatware!

    thanks in advance,

    1) Superuser is installed
    2) Rootchecker says that I have root access
    3) Root features on any app that has root features DO NOT work. Even if SU grants them permission.

    Updating SU binaries succeeds but upon checking itself to see if new binaries work, it says "failed". I am getting the same errors within moto-fail as the OP.
