in process now, after it is done will I still have root access?
You will need to re-root your device. Once it is done it should be as if you just opened the box and took it out for the first time. But that is easy to do.
And reading your face off is important to do, especially if you want to avoid issues in the future lol. And if need be just come back in here and ask questions, I will try and help make sure you are doing things properly. If I am unavailable at the time then someone else passing through may have an answer for you in the mean time.
I poured over the net, the hardest part is that I was getting info piecemeal from all over, is there a centralized place to go for rooting and flashing for droid 2 that is complete? Thank you so much for your help!!!!!
There really is not a one-stop type deal. Especially with there being so many different devices. For the most part I learned from reading everything and then following up with trial and error. I know it was a sloppy process but it worked for me.
As I said though ALWAYS ask questions when you have them.
