Aren’t the group of developers at XDA awesome? I mean they bring us ICS before the manufacturers, they bring us faster and battery efficient ROM’s along with awesome root tools like this one. XDA member globed has just released a One-click tool for the Droid Razr. The tool does two important things — It restores the device in the event of a soft brick, which is definitely a handy thing to have in the event of a flash gone bad. & It retains root after therestore — again a very handy thing to have around. It can be frustrating torestore a device and realize that you no longer have root. So definitely a useful tool to have.
This tool has been developed for the CDMA version of the Motorola DROID RAZR – Verizon’s version. It has not been tested and most likely will not work on the GSM version that is available internationally.
