Preparations

One does not simply update an Android.    

First, go to the official Motorola website to download official Android drivers. Then, connect your device and create a backup. Remember to enable USB Debugging on your device and as always, make sure it's unlocked.

Make sure your battery is charged to at least 80 percent before proceeding.

Step 1: You'll need the AOKP Build 4 Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean Custom ROM for the Motorla RAZR XT912. Download links for the package tend to go dead quickly, so do a little Googling to find it.

Step 2: Connect your RAZR to the computer and transfer the ROM file to the SD card.

Step 3: Go to the Google Play store and download the ROM Manager.

Step 4: Open ROM Manager and select "Reboot into Recovery."

Step 5: Enter the CWM recovery mode. Delete all data from the device, then select "flash zip from SD card" by pressing the Power key.

Step 6: Press "choose zip from SD card" again. Then select the "Android 4.2.2 ROM" using the Volume keys to navigate. Press the Power key to install it.

Step 7: Hit "Go back" and then reboot your RAZR through the recovery menu.

Step 8: The device will restart, which will take about 5-10 minutes. Do nothing until this process completes.

Your phone is now rooted. Kudos.
