I have been interested in Android from the moment the first devices were released. I love the fact that its such a widely accepted mobile OS and that I can be a large part of the community as a whole.


  1. I just purchased a Razr Maxx today an tried this method on a Mac 10.7.3 in Terminal and it wouldn’t root my phone. Is it cause they updated it and this method doesn’t work? I dont need the drivers do I seeing that ‘m on Mac? Also I have USB debugging and Charge Only settings on.
