Droid Razr HD/Maxx RecoveryTweet
So you have your shiny new Dev Razr HD/Maxx and you unlocked it and all you need now is root. Before you get to far in to messing with your phone the first thing you should do is install a new recovery. You can use either ClockworkMod Recovery or the new TWRP recovery. For your flashing pleasure I have included both below with the proper commands.
Step 1: Download the fastboot zip (command line stuff) (Windows, Linux, Mac)
Step 2: Download a recovery
TWRP : Download now
Step 3: Place the recovery and the fastboot files for your system in the same folder.
Enter into a command terminal and type the command below
For TWRP : fastboot flash recovery twrp-hdrecovery.img
You have just finished installing a new recovery, now make a backup and root.
Step 4: Enter recovery buy holding the volume up and pressing the power button for 1 second.
Step 5: Make a backup before doing anything else.
Step 6: install the root package using the install a zip option.

You are now rooted, go have fun and play safely.
