    Angry Root Problems

    i have trouble trying to root my Motorola droid 2.2 . ive tried using Universal Androot but it keeps giving me an error saying "Failed ! No fu goo. w/e taht means. ive also tried using "Easy Root" ive paid and got a key for it and when i used the app it says cingrats and now its rooted etc. and then says have to reboot to finished it and when i do nothing happens. I go back into the app again and it has me root it again. ive rooted it over n over and each time says congrats its rooted but when i reboot it doesnt do anything. the app says when i reboot and go back into the app it will bring me right to this page where it suggests apps to use but it doesn't it just has me root it again. Ive also tried downloading some update i was reading abotu n doing the hold X thing then hit volume and camra etc and install that was but i get errors doing that too. iver watched videos on how to root with easy root and universal and ive done everything they have but its not working. any ideas?

    See Motocache1's guide to rooting.

    Easyroot and androot DO NOT work for rooting 2.2.

    A change was made to the stock recovery that makes it impossible to root without doing it the "long" or (what I like to call) correct way.
