Found the instructions for rooting in this thread:http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...-tutorial.html
Followed the instructions. Put the z4root.1.3.0.zip file on a clean, freshly formatted SDcard and used Astro to extract.
This is where I'm confused:
-from the How to root Droid 2 thread:
"-Go ahead and open up Astro on your Droid2 (You could download this from the Android Market, just search "Astro". It is used to view the contents on your SD card, kind of like a file manager where you could view, edit,delete, add or move all your files on your card).* Once its open, navigate to the z4root file you added earlier. Click on it and select Open App Manager, and click Install. You should now have the z4root App installed! *
-Open up the "z4root" App
-Click on the "Root" button." The underlined red text is where I'm getting lost.
I click on the zip file but I find no option for an "Open App Manager" or "Install" when I do so nor can I find any executable file which would allow me to install the z4root. No z4root app appears in my list of apps. The extracted files on the SDcard just show a z4root folder with these files: AndroidManisfest.xml, classes.dex, a "lib" folder, a "META.INF" folder. a "res" folder and a "resources.arsc" folder.
So, what am I missing here? Where are the "Open App Manager" and the "Install" options?
