    Has Anyone Rooted OTA Gingerbread on Droid 2 w/Pete Souza's D3 Utility?

    Has Anyone Rooted OTA Gingerbread on Droid 2 w/Pete Souza's D3 Utility? ( Pete's DROID 3 Page )

    It says it's known to work on Droid 2 Global, but I don't want to assume that necessarily means Droid 2 (A955).

    I used the Linux version to root my Droid 2 Gingerbread. It works great!

    Yup, did it today as a matter of fact. can't remember where I got it, just ran it like it says to and voila. If it goes south let us know.

    Root Droid problems

    I can't get it to work I have a droid 2 (not global). Pete's one click just says 'searching for the phone' even when I have it connected with USB.
    I have tried to do it with USB debugging on and off.

    Maybe its looking for a droid 2 glbal rather than a plain Droid 2?

    I also have failed with z4root - which worked fine for android 2.2 but not with the new 2.3. It just hangs or 'force close' when I try to root with z4


    HELP !!!
    thanks

    I used the adb method, worked flawlessly. Mark, make sure you have the moto usb drivers installed, or else your computer won't recognize the phone.

    Got this to work on my Droid 2 Global. But I can't find a wireless tether app that works. Anyone have or know of one that works?
