Razr Utility Helps You With Root, CWM Clockworkmod Recovery, etc. on Your Motorola Razr and Droid Razr

Not long ago, we shared a Kindle Fire utility tool with you which would do all sort of tweaking and flashing for you, whether it be fastboot stuff, root, clockworkmod recovery, ADB, factory reset, etc. Now, thanks to Mattlgroff over at XDA, we have a similar (in fact, even more robust) tool available for Motorola best phone right now, the Razr — and it’s compatible with both CDMA (XT912 | Verizon) and GSM (XT910 | Global) Versions.

To get a grasp of what this Razr utility tool is capable of, check out the screenshot at the top which lists out all available options and functions of this tool for Motorola Razr. Both phones have two version of this toll: Lite and Full. While Lite version will root your Razr, install clockworkmod (CWM) recovery and help you with fastboot and ADB stuff, Full version of this tool will also help you restore the phone back to original factory settings void of root, clockworkmod recovery, your apps and other data, etc.

CDMA Razr Utility

We would suggest you to use the very small sized Lite version of this tool, unless you want the firmware packed into it too. Btw, the firmware version in Full version of this tool is:

  1. For Verizon’s Motorola Droid Razr, XT912: 6.11.744
  2. For Global GSM Motorola Razr, XT910: 651.73.30

There is only one difference between capabilities of Razr utility tool for CDMA Verizon version and GSM global version, the former has two recovery apps available for flashing recovery, bootstrap recovery app and safestrap recovery app, while the latter has only one, bootstrap recovery app, all of which is okay.
