The Motorola Droid Razr is one of the toughest phones that Motorola has ever created and released into the market. You would think that this phone is tough to tweak, too. Apparently not, especially if you root it and install ClockworkMod Recovery.
Developed by Koushik Dutta, ClockworkMod Recovery is an advanced console replacement for Android phones and tablets. Using ClockworkMod, you can do stuff such as wipe your phone data, apply updates, backup and restore, wipe the Dalvik cache and battery stats, fix permissions, mount and manage mass storage, and apply themes and kernels.
But, the most exciting thing that ClockworkMod can enable you to do is one of Android’s greatest joys: the ability to install custom ROMs to your Motorola Droid Razr.
In this post, you will learn how to install ClockworkMod Recovery on your Motorola Droid Razr.
Before you can install ClockworkMod Recovery to your phone, make sure that your phone is already rooted. If you haven’t rooted your phone yet, check out this guide, or this one.
Back up all the data on your phone, especially those that are very important. This is necessary because if anything goes wrong, at least you are assured that all your files are safe and sound.
After you have done all the requirements above, you can now proceed to the actual installation of ClockworkMod Recovery on your phone. Follow the instructions carefully in order for the installation process to be successful. We will not be liable if your Motorola Droid Razr gets damaged if you follow this guide, so if you are not confident about doing this at all, either don’t do it or get help from someone knowledgeable about these things.
Here’s how to install ClockworkMod Recovery:
NOTE: Every time you reboot your phone, you will be taken into recovery mode. To boot into normal mode, just select the reboot option from the recovery menu. If you get stuck in a boot loop, you can break free from it by holding down both the Volume Down and Power keys for about 5 seconds.
Congratulations! You have successfully installed ClockworkMod Recovery on your Droid Razr.

How do you uninstall it…Stupid question I know….
Thanks! Easy to follow instructions, concise background information.
Wait, so after we do this it’s going to reboot into recovery move EVERY time? What kind of plan is that?
Great instructions! Thanks! It worked no problem. Quick question: if we flash a ROM, such as Eclipse (Razr), do we need to make sure RazrBootstrap stays “Denied?”
which version is it? cwm 2.x or cwm 3.x+ ?
Which version is it???
I’m running ClockworkMod Recovery v18.104.22.168.
