    Greetings all -

    Long time iOS user, now on a Razr HD Maxx. Figured I'd give something else a try when I switched from AT&T to Verizon. So far, I like the phone, but I have a few annoyances. I can live with all of them except one - the constant barrage of ads that Verizon shoves down our throats everytime the phone is unlocked.

    So, I looked into rooting the phone, and I'm running into some difficulties. I've rooted iPhones and my iPad successfully in the past, so I'm not a n00b at it. But the process for this phone is kicking my butt.

    I'm on Android 4.1.2 and I just received an update yesterday to go to System version 9.18.79.XT926.Verizon.en.US.

    None of the rooting packages I've tried work. OneTouchRoot, motofail, RazrBlade... all of them fail.

    I do not have an A/V package installed. I did have Lookout running, but I uninstalled that, in preparation for the rooting procedure, so that's gone.

    Motofail and RazrBlade both complain about insufficient rights to carry out their exploits.

    Soooo.... any assistance from those of you much more learned Android folks would be greatly appreciated.

    Sean
