But if you think you've rooted it before hopefully you can find someone confident enough to use "Droid Razr Utility" to re-flash your phone. Good luck with it. If it's any consolation in the meanwhile I've heard the Razr update was rushed and full of bugs (but a better version might be coming out soon).
It is strange. If you can think of a reason for never having rooted your phone in the first place (which program did you use?) then you might just have to do a factory reset in Settings -> Privacy (after backing up anything you need). If that doesn't work, take it back to wherever you bought it (I assume Optus?).

hmm it seems my phone may be unrooted as it states 'sorry test failed...' and there is no superuser app or su file however I can't update android.
Suggestions?
I live quite far away (Maroubra) and to be honest, there's never 100% guarantee you won't brick the phone :( Most situations seem unbrickable though, but I've never had that problem :)
You can unroot manually using a file explorer with root-access permissions (e.g. ES File Explorer or Root Explorer). It's actually quite easy. See this video.



1) Delete /system/app/Superuser.apk if you installed Superuser (most likely).

2) Delete the "su" file, which could be in any one of three places, depending on how you rooted:

/system/bin/su OR
/system/sbin/su OR
/system/xbin/su
