i hit enter after each line right? bc i did
and it did notthin.. I did get the # thou just didnt do anything on those lines
Edit i guess it did work lol wierd
I put the phone back to 2.1 using the sbf procedure, then I rooted 2.1 again (this time moving the su file to the xbin folder. Then I installed froyo again. This time I did NOT lose root! The lesson I learned here is to follow ALL of the instructions..... back in business!

If you get a # prompt after /system/su, mv /system/su /system/bin/su should do the trick. If you get read-only filesystem error, you need to enter the "mount" command elsewhere in the thread first.
Hope that helps.
For all of us that screwed up the 2.1 to 2.2 we can now root without having to go back to 2.1!
The wait is over. I was rooted on 2.1 and followed the wrong directions when I upgraded to 2.2 so I lost root. Follow the instructions for How to root Droid 2 . It worked for me! Like I said I was rooted in 2.1 and lost it so I have no idea if it will work for someone that never had root. I followed the instuctions from post #1 and post #7. #7 makes changes to post #1 so read them both before you start. I also had to give full path to the c: drive when I did the adb push. After I finished the phone still acted as no root but after a battery pull it works now. Enjoy!
