Droid Razr is another cool Android phone from Motorola. We have already told you about you can root CDMA/GSM Droid Razr device easily and this time we have came up with another tutorial about how to install custom recovery clockworkMod on Droid Razr. XDA developer senior member hacker812c has ported the SGS3 CWM touch recovery to Droid Razr and its working absolutely fine. The recovery is stable and you will be able to backup your current firmware or install a new ROM easily using the touch interface. This Touch recovery will not work for Verizon Droid Razr users.
- First of all, you need to create the backup of all your important data such as Images, Audios, Videos, SMS, contacts, call logs, Bookmarks, APN (Access Point Names) settings and MMS settings etc because all your data will be wiped out during the installation of CWM Recovery.
- Any Anti-virus or firewall installed on your Computer or RAZR must be disabled before starting the installation.
- Ensure that you have charged your device battery to 80% just to clear that your device won’t discharge while processing Recovery.
- Make sure that the USB Debugging option is enabled on your RAZR. To obtain this you need to navigate to ‘Settings > Applications > Development > USB Debugging’.
