Jelly Bean leak comes to Verizon's Motorola DROID RAZR M

0. phoneArena 13 Oct 2012, 15:55 posted on

Even though the DROID RAZR M has only been available for a few weeks, we're amazed that the first Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean leak has hit the web. The leak (version 98.11.35 XT907) comes to us from @P3Droid over on Twitter, and is 255MB in size. Keep in mind that this may not be the final version that Verizon will push out via Over-the-Air, but should give a good indication of what it will feature.

I was much, much happier with the Rezound after the upgrade to ICS/Sense 3.6. Even with an S3 it's noticeably smoother than Gingerbread. Yes, Sense is still intrusive, and the phone doesn't fly like S4 devices, but it is much improved (I actually prefer Sense 3.6 to 4.0). And I agree, the screen is the biggest asset of the Rezound, but it was and is enough for me. I like my pretty screens.

I agree about the crap stock battery though. Mugen Power gave my phone a new lease on life.

xD you're in the Fastboot Recovery screen. with the phone powered off you hold down Vol Up & Down + Power and you should see a list of options in a white font on a black screen. you go down to "Recovery" using the Vol Down key and select it by pressing the Vol Up key.

I do that. And then it shows the Motorola Logo, then goes to that screen. And p.s. I'm rooted, I don't know if that has anything to do with it.

somehow what you're doing is going to the option below the "Recovery" option called "AP Fastboot" what you're supposed to see if you're doing this right is the Motorola Logo and then the dead Android.

Do you know why that's happening? Do I need to turn fastboot off in the settings?

So here's the deal: I rooted my Droid Razr M ICS stock withhttp://www.phonearena.com/news/Root-comes-to-the-Motorola-DROID-RAZR-HD-RAZR-M-and-Atrix-HD_id35615 method. Once rooted, I loaded this page's Jelly Bean leak with little effort and great success but found that when fully loaded, my phone was no longer rooted. So after a frustrating realization that it was no longer rooted, I retraced my steps and redid the steps over again and yet... I was still not rooted. So, could someone assist me in my venture for a rooted Jelly Bean ROM?

just use the root exploit on JB...
and next time protect your root with Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper.

do the same thing you did to root your M on JB as you did on ICS.

I said that I just did that. It did not work at all. Now I am lost in my own terrifying unrooted abyss of bloatware and a lack of administrative privileges...

you might have to replace the Superuser.apk and the su files. just download the "Rootzipfile" from the "Installing a recovery and rooting your Dev Razr-M" article on aosp.us and replace the "Superuser.apk" and the "su" files that's in the folder you're running the script from with the duplicates in the zip file you just downloaded.

OK, so I bypassed your last step and went back to the one before that. I used the OTA RootKeeper with the method that I had first used and bam! It kept the root and now I am once again rooted. Much appreciated King!!

If I install the leak for jelly bean will I still get over the official OTA jelly bean update when it comes out?

this is fastbootable so you can go back to ICS if you have to.

I'm sorry I must of misunderstood....if i don't go back to ICS will I still receive OTA update when I have this jellybean leak?

it depends on if this leak IS the OTA version.
if it is then you were just ahead of the curb.
if it isn't you'll have to fastboot back to ICS to get the OTA. it's just a minor process.
