    Hi, I am using Motorola RAZR XT910, ICS. I found the RAM USUAGE is avg 75%, If I ROOT my devices & update to 4.4 (kitkat) will help to improve my device performance., Also suggest whether I can ROOT or shall Wait for Release from Motorola

    • Root or not to Root is always your choice to make.

      N yeah you will have capability to stop Apps which are not being used by you but are still using RAM on your device only after Root.

  2. Motorola is likely to release its official KitKat update for Droid Razr and Razr Maxx not before February or March 2014.
