Earlier we had written on rooting the Droid X. It was told that it was impossible to root the Droid X. But now developers have found out How to Root Droid 2 how to root not only the Droid X but also the newly arrived Droid 2. The xda-developers forum post shows that this is possible. If you want to root Droid 2, then here are the instructions to do it.

Root Droid 2

But you have to do the Droid 2 rooting process at your own risk as one single mistake could damage your phone. So you have to be cautious throughout the process.

***NOTE: Proceed at your own risk. I and the providers of this code are not responsible for anything you do to your phone! Also, I would advise against removing any bloatware until we have a working recovery or sbf file (though I heard a rumor one may be coming shortly )***

– Install adb (here) and Motorola drivers for windows(32-bit or 64-bit)
– Download attached archive
– Extract to a directory, I used c:\Droid2Root
– Make sure you have USB degugging enabled
– Change connection to PC Mode

– Open command prompt
– cd c:/wherever-your-sdk-tools-folder-is
– adb devices (to verify the connection)
– cd c:/Droid2Root
– adb push Superuser.apk /sdcard/Superuser.apk
– adb push su /sdcard/su
– adb push busybox /sdcard/busybox
– adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
– adb shell
– cd data/local/tmp
– chmod 0755 rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
– ./rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin

– let the process run until it returns you to c:/Droid2Root (be patient, but may need to reboot the phone)
– cd c:/wherever-your-sdk-tools-folder-is
– adb devices (to verify the connection)
– adb shell (you should now have a # prompt)
– mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
– cp /sdcard/Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk
– cp /sdcard/su /system/bin/su
– cp /sdcard/busybox /system/bin/busybox
– chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
– chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox
– mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
– exit
– exit
