Thanks to New Root Method, Bootloaders on RAZR HD and RAZR M can be Unlocked Again

Thanks to this weekend’s new root exploit/method/pile-of-awesomeness from geohot, we are hearing from a number of readers who own older Motorola phones (like the RAZR HD and RAZR M), that once rooted using towelroot, the previous bootloader unlock tool from djrbliss is working again. You may remember “Motopocalypse” from April of last year, an .apk file that really did finally end Motorola’s run at keeping their bootloaders locked. It was a glorious time, that’s for sure. 

But since then, if you failed to unlock the bootloader on your RAZR HD (MAXX HD too) or RAZR M and have taken updates, you have been stuck with a locked bootloader. While we aren’t recommending that you run to towelroot and Motopocalypse to unlock before it’s too late, we had to make sure that you at least knew that your chance has arrived once again.

I have not tested this myself, but if you head over to XDA, there are dozens of success stories from users who own this line of phones.

The method looks something like this – install towelroot and Motopocalypse, run towelroot, verify root, run Motopocalypse, profit.

Again, we are not recommending that you run out and unlock your bootloader, since this is something you cannot come back from and it voids your warranty and all that fun stuff, but if you were pissed at yourself from missing out the first time around, you may have struck gold twice. Or won the lottery twice. Or…you get the point.

Full instructions at the thread below, along with support should you run into issues.

Cheers Tim!

Motorola Releases Kernel Source Code For The Moto E And 4.4.2 Kernels For The RAZR M And RAZR HD

motorola-xt1022-400x400-imadvvfknshcywk5The Moto E is Motorola’s bid to dominate the low-end and developing markets, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worthy of attention from developers. As always with new Android phones, Motorola has posted the kernel source code for developers (and anyone else who wants to mess with it) at their official GitHub page.

code

The company also posted the updated source code for the RAZR M and RAZR HD (the international GSM variants of the Verizon-exclusive DROID RAZR M and DROID RAZR HD).

Verizon DROID RAZR HD soak test hides Android 4.4 inside

Brave souls who have volunteered to be part of Motorola‘s soak test intended for the DROID RAZR HD had a surprise waiting for them. The update they are supposed to test actually contained the update that almost everyone is waiting for: Android 4.4.2.

It’s been almost a month since Motorola revealed that the 2012 DROID family, particularly the HD and the M, will be getting their KitKat update in a few weeks. Those weeks have gone by and it seems that the update will soon be upon owners, except if any major release blocker has been found.

Motorola gave out invites for volunteers to soak test an update for the RAZR HD specifically. Little did these testers know, though hope they surely have, that they will actually be getting their hands on the awaited Android 4.4.2 update. This fact was confirmed by a number of XDA members who have were able to sign up for the test.

Those who missed out on the chance to test the update can still do so, though unofficially and without guarantees, not that an official test build would have guarantees anyway. It’s important to note that this soak test update is only intended for Verizon’s model, specifically the DROID RAZR HD XT926 and should not be tested on any other variant.

Motorola adds six more phones to Android 4.4 update list

Droid RAZR M, HD and MAXX HD

List gives no indication of when updates will actually begin rolling out

Motorola was quick to refresh its software support page to indicate which devices are set to receive Android 4.4, and it has just updated the page again with six more devices. Verizon and Motorola's 2012 Droid lineup are the big new additions, including the Droid RAZR M (branded and Dev Edition), RAZR HD and RAZR MAXX HD.

Interestingly, Motorola's support page is also now indicating that AT&T's Atrix HD will also be updated to Android 4.4, along with the U.S. Cellular Electrify M. They join the ranks of the Droid RAZR HD Developer Edition, the full lineup of 2013 Droid phones and of course Moto X variants on the Android 4.4 update path.

As is typical with these changes to the software support page, there's no indication as to when the updates will be making their way out, but simply knowing that as of now Motorola plans to update the devices is good. Naturally we'll have a better indication of when the device will receive the updates officially as the process moves along.

Verizon Makes The DROID Ultra And Maxx Official: Same Familiar Droids, With A Bunch Of New Stuff

1[13]

We’ve known for a while what Verizon was going to announce today, but the company just made it’s new Holy Trinity of Motorola Droids official: the Droid Ultra, Droid MAXX, and Droid Mini. As expected, all three are successors to last year’s Droid M, RAZR HD, and RAZR MAXX. While the Mini is basically in a league of its own, the Ultra and MAXX are kindred spirits, essentially only being separated by battery capacity and thickness.

Evleaks Leaks AT&T Version Of Unannounced Motorola Phone, And You’ll Want To See The Model Name

BJSYkVUCcAArXT1 (1)

Intrepid leakster @evleaks has just dropped a few images of a black-boxed Motorola device that appears to be headed for AT&T. It’s worth noting that this is the first Motorola product we’ve seen badged up for an American carrier since the RAZR HD / RAZR M last summer, quite a long time ago.

BJSYkVUCcAArXT1 (1)

It’s also a phone we’ve seen before. At least, it seems to be. Vietnamese blog Tinhte leaked a device with the codename “XT912A” (XT is Moto’s typical device prefix for “DROID” branded devices), and it’s pretty clear the two are one in the same in most respects, at least based on what we see in these photos.

Dan Rosenberg: ‘I See This As The End Of An Era For Motorola Rooting And Modding’

1

When it comes to root and mod action on Motorola devices from the last couple of years, all eyes turn to brilliant Android hacker Dan Rosenberg. Since the Droid 3 was released two years ago, Rosenberg has successfully found root exploits for every Motorola device, including the D3, Bionic, RAZR, Droid 4, Xoom 2, Atrix HD, RAZR HD, and RAZR M. Add to that the fact he just released a tool that unlocks the bootloaders on the most modern Moto phones (RAZR HD, M, and Atrix HD), and it’s not hard to see why he’s such an important part of the Motorola modding community.

DROID RAZR HD Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update receives root

Earlier this week a major milestone was reached in terms of unlocking and hacking Motorola smartphones. Motorola’s encrypted bootloaders finally were cracked and it represents a first for many of their latest devices. Nothing close to this has been achieved on a Motorola device yet. Sadly the process requires a rooted device, and for many that wasn’t available until now.

main-razr-540x405

The method achieved and later released to unlock the bootloader on our precious RAZR HD, MAXX HD, RAZR M, Atrix HD and more all require a rooted device. Rooting Moto phones isn’t very easy either, and until yesterday the latest OTA update to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean was still locked down, and only 4.1.1 was rooted. This means only those who passed on the latest OTA were able to unlock their bootloader, but not anymore.

So if you accepted the OTA to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean in March for the RAZR and MAXX HD, the details released this week for rooting will have you covered. After you root your RAZR HD, then go back to this post to learn more about unlocking that bootloader.

Obviously rooting your device and unlocking the bootloader comes with a certain amount of risk. So proceed with caution. If you only want to root the latest OTA you’ll want to read up on all the details over at DroidRzr.com then enjoy that full root access. The developer responsible for all of this has recently stated he’s done with rooting and exploiting Motorola, so hopefully now that Google owns the company things ease up a bit.

Motorola unlock tool for RAZR HD, RAZR M and Atrix HD released

Motorola_Logo_From_DROID_RAZR_MAXX_HD_TA

Yesterday, the bootloader was unlocked on some major Motorola phones by Dan Rosenberg; the RAZR (MAXX) HD, RAZR M, and the Atrix HD. Motorola devices are notoriously difficult to unlock, so that was a pretty big deal. Today, that unlock tool was released to users. As a warning, it does void your warranty, and the tool cannot relock the bootloader, only unlock it. Motorola also will probably fix the exploit used in a future software update, so if you want to unlock your device, it’s best to do it sooner rather than later.

To get started, you’ll simply have to have a rooted, supported device, then follow the instructions below, and remember that as of right now, this is irreversible.

Three final warnings before you make your decision:

  • You understand that using this tool will permanently, irreversibly void your device’s warranty.
  • You understand that it may not be possible to “relock” your device’s bootloader after unlocking using this tool. A side effect of this is that if you lose your device and you are not using disk encryption, a malicious party who acquires your phone may be able to extract all personal data from the device regardless of any lock screen.
  • You agree that I am in no way responsible for any damage to your device as a result of using this tool.

Now, for the actual instructions. You’ll need to download the tool here before you get started.

  1. Extract the entire contents of the zip file.
  2. If you are using Windows, ensure you have installed the latest Motorola USB drivers available for your phone.
  3. Ensure your device has been rooted and you have a working installation of “su”.
  4. Ensure USB Debugging mode is enabled on your device.
  5. If you are using Windows, navigate to the extracted directory and execute “run.bat”. If you are using Linux or OS X, navigate to the extracted directory in a terminal and execute “./run.sh”.

There’s also a disclaimer that this will not work on any OMAP Motorola phones, such as the Droid Bionic or original RAZR. So if you were thinking about being adventurous, it’s probably not a good idea this time.

Dan Rosenberg Releases Bootloader Unlock Tool For Motorola DROID RAZR HD / MAXX HD, RAZR M, And Atrix HD

new-razr-backs

If you own a RAZR HD, RAZR MAXX HD, RAZR M, or Atrix HD, and you’ve been waiting for the day when sweet bootloader-unlocking goodness arrives, wait no more: Dan Rosenberg has come to the rescue yet again.

Dan just published a tool that will allow you to unlock any of the above-mentioned Moto devices, assuming you have root access on your phone. Just have a working superuser app on your device, download the tool, connect to your PC with USB debugging enabled, and run the included script. From there, follow the instructions.

There are a few catches. First, you must be rooted – some 4.1.2 builds for the supported devices do not yet have a working root method.

DROID RAZR HD and MAXX HD update rolling out now with camera fixes

Today Verizon Wireless is pushing out yet another update for their highly popular Motorola DROID RAZR HD and bigger brother MAXX HD smartphones. We first confirmed the update at the tail end of last week, and today it is officially hitting smartphones around the US. Prepare to accept the update and get tons of improvements across the board.

main-razr-540x405

This isn’t Android 4.2.2, but since the RAZR HD was already updated to Jelly Bean instead they’ve opted to just fix a few software and audio issues, improve camera performance, and hopefully make connectivity even better. According to the details released by Verizon last week, that’s exactly what we’ll be getting.

The update will bring the RAZR HD and MAXX HD to version 9.16.6 and will run roughly 96MB in size. A WiFi connection is recommended. Verizon states a specific data roaming issue has been fixed, USB connection/deconnect has been improved drastically, and WiFi has even been improved today. Lastly Verizon and Moto confirm the update improves the camera touch-to-focus as well as low light performance.

That’s certainly good news. We all know the camera hasn’t been one of Motorola’s strong points on their smartphones. Again the update is around 96MB in size and you should be getting it anytime now. Feel free to check for updates yourself in settings > about phone > check for updates and enjoy the latest and greatest.

DROID RAZR HD and MAXX HD update rolling out now with camera fixes

Today Verizon Wireless is pushing out yet another update for their highly popular Motorola DROID RAZR HD and bigger brother MAXX HD smartphones. We first confirmed the update at the tail end of last week, and today it is officially hitting smartphones around the US. Prepare to accept the update and get tons of improvements across the board.

main-razr-540x405

This isn’t Android 4.2.2, but since the RAZR HD was already updated to Jelly Bean instead they’ve opted to just fix a few software and audio issues, improve camera performance, and hopefully make connectivity even better. According to the details released by Verizon last week, that’s exactly what we’ll be getting.

The update will bring the RAZR HD and MAXX HD to version 9.16.6 and will run roughly 96MB in size. A WiFi connection is recommended. Verizon states a specific data roaming issue has been fixed, USB connection/deconnect has been improved drastically, and WiFi has even been improved today. Lastly Verizon and Moto confirm the update improves the camera touch-to-focus as well as low light performance.

That’s certainly good news. We all know the camera hasn’t been one of Motorola’s strong points on their smartphones. Again the update is around 96MB in size and you should be getting it anytime now.
