    Here is the "Nerdslogic" way of doing this including rooting, backup, and ROM flashing....ALL of this can be done from PHONE....no PC required

    APPS you will need:
    Z4Root....free and I will get to that in a second
    Astro File Manager (or similar) free in Market
    AppInstaller....free in market
    D2 Bootstrap Recovery...free if you download from this link....this too may download as a TXT file. Look in next section for resolution.
    http://koush.tandtgaming.com//motoro...XBootstrap.apk

    Rooting the D2:

    Download Z4Root 1.3.0 from this link
    z4root 1.3.0 (1).apk

    It will download as a TXT file....just use Astro and rename the file to an APK by holding down on the file, select edit, rename, and just replace the last 3 letters (TXT) with APK

    Go to menu, settings, applications, and check the box next to "Unknown Sources"

    Use appinstaller to install Z4Root.

    Open Z4Root and click "Permanent Root" if you select Temp your root will be gone when your phone reboots the next time.

    The benefit to using Z4Root is should you need to unroot you just open the app and click "unroot"


    Backing up your current ROM after root:

    1. Open DX\D2 Bootstrap Recovery
    2. Select top option and grant SU Permission....wait for "success" to pop up
    3. Select second option....your phone will reboot
    4. In this menu Volume up and volume down are your navigation and camera = enter....back arrow goes back a level or to previous menu
    5. Navigate to Backup\restore
    6. Select backup....this will take a while...wait till it says backup complete then navigate back to original menu....select reboot


    Flashing a new ROM on your D2:

    1. Open DX\D2 Bootstrap Recovery
    2. Select top option and wait for "success" to pop up
    3. Select second option....your phone will reboot
    4. In this menu Volume up and volume down are your navigation and camera = enter....back arrow goes back a level or to previous menu
    5. select "wipe data/factory reset"
    6. Select "yes----delete all data"
    7. Hit back arrow
    8. Select "choose zip from SDCARD"
    9. Find and select ROM you are flashing....for example Liberty1.5 2 or X (depending on if you have a D2 or DX) and hit camera button....wait till install is complete
    10. Use back arrow to get back to main menu and select reboot


    That's it.

    You can use the first post in this thread for referrence.....there are also instructions for installing themes and more. A lot can be found in the Liberty Toolbox for additional mod's and tweaks.
    [ROM]One small step for man one giant leap for --- Liberty 1.5 2/2/2011


    Sent from a Liberated Droid 2 using the DF app.
    This worked perfectly on my Droid2 R2D2 thank you so much
    all i did was the Z4 Root I may flash at a later date

    you can buy this from the market for $2 and it is TOTALLY worth every penny.

    Hmm....I don't know. I would post a thread about this as there are many more skilled D2G guys and gals on this forum to help.

    It should only take 15-20 seconds. I had issues too. Did you go into bootstrapper and delete you cache and data files? I was boot lopping until I did that.

    First -MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A BACKUP!!!!!

    You should already have one though.

    Go to apps and open bootstrapper app, then click/touch reboot recovery.

    Phone should reboot into clockwork recovery. Use volume to m ove up/down, select WIPE DATA/FACTORY RESET. hit the camera button to select.

    Move down to WIPE CACHE PARTITION, select. Then select reboot. You might have to reinstall Liberty from the zip if it doesnt work right away.
