sounds like you're not extracting the whole zip file.
download the zip to your desktop, then right click on and and choose extract. when it's done extracting delete the zip file. then run the bat file

I was all into rooting my Charge and Bionic. I just received the Razr as a replacement. I think I will wait for a fastboot to be come available JIC I manage to screw something up. Maybe DHacker will pop in with a modded version of his.

worked for me, however i forget to check system updates first and am not on the latest OTA. gonna have to unroot and try again. so you might want to do a little research if you are not on the software that the MAXX shipped with.

Rooted (I think) using this method, but no superuser app. Will I get the super user app if it's rooted?

EDIT: This is the outcome of the rooting process

---------------------------------------------------------------
Easy rooting toolkit (v4.0)
created by DooMLoRD
using exploit zergRush (Revolutionary Team)
Credits go to all those involved in making this possible!
---------------------------------------------------------------
[*] This script will:
(1) root ur device using latest zergRush exploit (21 Nov)
(2) install Busybox (1.18.4)
(3) install SU files (binary: 3.0.3 and apk: 3.0.6)
(4) some checks for free space, tmp directory
(will remove Google Maps if required)
[*] Before u begin:
(1) make sure u have installed adb drivers for ur device
(2) enable "USB DEBUGGING"
from (Menu\Settings\Applications\Development)
(3) enable "UNKNOWN SOURCES"
from (Menu\Settings\Applications)
(4) [OPTIONAL] increase screen timeout to 10 minutes
(5) connect USB cable to PHONE and then connect to PC
(6) skip "PC Companion Software" prompt on device
---------------------------------------------------------------
CONFIRM ALL THE ABOVE THEN

Can anyone tell me what software version the MAXX should be on for this? Looking to root my GF's MAXX but I don't want to fuck it up... Moto devices make me uneasy.

Hey, I transferred to the razr maxx after a rooted thunderbolt. I successfully got root on the maxx, now I am trying to install the safestrap but the apk link is dead. Is there another place to download the apk, or not? I also wondered what safestrap actually does because on the thunderbolt didn't need anything along those lines. Thanks for the help.

<Edit> After some time searching, I found this link which gives you information on safestrap and why it is used. http://blog.hash-of-codes.com/how-to-safestrap/. You can also download the safestrap apk from that blog by clicking the safestrap link on the right. Hope this helps anyone that had similar questions that I had. <Edit>
