    Here is the story. I had an app to organize photos but it was making my phone misbehave so i uninstalled it. I went into my files and deleted the file for that app considering i wasn't going to get it again but as i deleted the file i noticed it was taking too long to delete and then the next day when i was looking for a photo i seen my photos where wiped out (completely gone) until i seen app that claim to get them back but they all say my phone needs to be rooted.

The phone is a Droid 2 (not Global or Incredible) just a standard droid 2... I'm checking my root status with Titanium backup pro (which I still have on my phone from when I did have it rooted prior to the last update verzion had sent out that killed my ability to root.
    I even attempted to switch the phone into pc mode and run the rooting cd that way.
    Any ideas?
    Tutor
    did you get any errors

    edit:
    is it installing superuser app?

    your doing this

    Reboot PC
    Hit F12 (sometimes F8 or esc) during boot to go to boot menu
    Select drive image is on
    wait for yellow "boot baby... boot" screen
    You will see yellow dots for 3-5 minutes then the script will start
    just follow on screen instructions

    select D2 for multi device root cd or /select root for the Droid2_621_SBF-and-Root CD
    don't use numbers on right side of you keyboard, just use the ones above qwerty

    turn phone on, connect to pc with usb cable

    check usb debugging (settings/apps/development)
    select charge only usb mode

    press continue
    adb will pushCode:

    data/local.prop /data/preinstall_md5/magic.md5

    reboot phone to bootloader
    flash repacked sbf (less than 50mb)
    reboot twice, very important (reboot just replaces the local.prop, but the old local.prop is still in memory, till second reboot)
    adb pushes su,superuser, and busybox
    reboot to recovery, wipe cache
    reboot normally
    rooted

    re's
    Just attempted (3 times) to use the link on page 1 of this thread after burning it as in iso to a cd...
    First off after the pc reboots on the cd it checks the pc's system and asks what sound card I want to configure... no biggie I just hit enter, it then checks and see's the phone runs the start up script asks which phone... I select option 1 (droid 2/r2r2)... it mounts (I guess) and has me go to bootloader... it then "erases data" and I wait and wait as it installs... after about 10 minutes of watching the percentage count up it says it will reboot the phone then continue with the rooting process... the phone reboots... but the program just sits there smiling at me as if it is still waiting for the phone to do something.
    I've attempted to rebot the phone a couple of times thinking the program "just didn't see the phone rebooting" or something but nothing ever happens... I finally use the ctrl-alt-del to get the pc out of just sitting there (after removing the cd)... I am using windows 7 but that shouldn't really matter since it's booting off the cd anyway.

    you know there is three different iso files in op
    sound like you downloaded the Droid2_D2G_DX_DX2-RootCD-2012.iso yes?
    he phone reboots..
    to android os (it booted normally), or back to bootloader?
    reboot phone to bootloader
    flash repacked sbf (less than 50mb)
    reboot twice, very important (reboot just replaces the local.prop, but the old local.prop is still in memory, till second reboot)
    program sticks, try toggling usb debugging
    usb debugging (settings/apps/development)
    or reboot phone manually

    Actually your correct... I did d/l the global version this time... BUT what I had been using (to my credit) orginally was the correct version 213megs big I believe).. when using that version it would boot off the cd as before... asking the sound card question but doesn't ask which phone I have... I believe the options were flash sbf, root phone, or shutdown... those 3 options.
    The program would run, have me go to bootloader, erase/install (the waiting percentage thingy)... reboot the phone (twice) have me go and wipe cache, restart phone and still no root.
    At the end of the rooting process it does show errors that I files can't be re-written or are hidden... I don't know how to do a screenshot while outside of windows runningI take it that this program(cd) could be run windowed so I can do the screenshots to sow the errors...?

    . I did d/l the global version this time...
    the Droid2_D2G_DX_DX2-RootCD-2012.iso is a muti device root program, just choose your device it works fine
    At the end of the rooting process it does show errors that I files can't be re-written or are hidden.
    still no super user app?
    you may have to use the SBF option first

    your checking usb debugging (settings/apps/development)
    and selecting charge only usb mode?

    also have you used MD5 & SHA-1 Checksum Utility: verify the hash checksum to ensure the file integrity is correct with the matching file
    I added md5 hashs to op
