    I just got my new Razr Maxx.

    So I looking to root it, but I would like to to be able to load ICS update when it comes out.

    I read if I use OTA root keeper, then I can install the ICS update when it comes out.

    I've look but cannot find the guide or install for OTA root keeper.

    Any pointers?

    thanks

    ok, that was to easy. I never think to look in the market. ;)

    One question:


    What process should I follow?

    Do I "protect root" then run "backup root"

    a little lost on this.

    thanks

    Well I ran protect root and back up root and got the same message.... She root protected.
    Where do it back it up to?
    How do I know it really did anything?
    Also, what root method should I use with it? Or Does it not matter?

    Thanks

    1) OTA Rootkeeper will only work AFTER you've rooted, so that's step 1.

    2) You really just have to believe that it works, it will show on screen that it's made root safe, but you can't really 'prove' that in any way.

    3) It's possible to make changes to the system after rooting, for instance removing bloatware, that may cause the OTA from Moto to fail. Rooting alone, however, shouldn't cause a problem (note I said "shoudn't" and not "won't", it really depends on how Moto codes the update script. Until it rolls out we don't know what they are looking for to validate the device. That said, you can always unroot if necessary)

    thanks for the reply!

    Just so I have it correctly:

    Do I just run backup root and protect root?

    what's the difference between the 2?

    Once they are run, I can root using any methd then if needed just use root keeper by pressing "restore root and I'm back to an unrooted Os?

    Am I correct on that?

    thanks again.
