    How do I select "No"...it sounds dumb but regardless of what I push I can make nothing happen.

    btw I am really hating motorola now I picked up the D2 because my first one was the best smart phone Ive ever had simply because of the wifi radio and available roms....had a razr, d2g, og droid, htc thunderbolt, htc incredible. Out of my ignorance I bought this D2 without knowing moto has locked down all of their bootloaders WTFH moto......HTC has a dev website and they will unlock the bootloader for what ever HTC phone you have no questions asked. Who wants to buy a D2 very clean and a great battery? I'm going back to HTC

    if press n and enter doesn't work
    did you verify md5 check sum, if yes and it was correct
    then you may need to run on a different pc, or change from usb to cd or vise versa

    if you have a good/newer pc you can try
    Oracle VM VirtualBox and set up a virtrual system to run the iso in windows
    install oracle vm, select new, next, enter name like "Droid x 621 root",
    operating system: linux
    version: ubuntu select next
    default base: memory size is 512 MB, that should be fine, if your pc has lots of memory may want to bump up to 1gb select next
    create a new virtual disk: check start-up disk, create new hard disk, select next
    virtual disk creation wizard: select vdi (virtual disk image) select next
    storage: select Dynamically allocatedselect next
    location and size: leave default location, unless you want it some where else, default size is 8bg, need less than 512mb, leave size unless you have a small hard disk, and don't think it uses the space, it's just to prevent vm from taking up too much storage
    Summary: select create
    Summary: select create

    select your vm, select run,
    first run wizard:select next
    select media:
    select folder with green arrow, findDroid2_D2G_DX_DX2-RootCD-2012.iso on hard drive, select open, select next,
    summary: select start
    boot baby... boot: select enter to start (should start automatically, but selecting enter will start it faster)
    select your device and enter (use qwerty numbers, mouse does not work)
    enable usb debugging and usb charge only select enter to continueselect vm's Devices tab/ usb devices/ click on "motorola xxxxxx" (name will change, ever time phone changes modes,
    program should run and reboot phone to bootloader or ask you to reboot to bootloader
    ever time phone changes modes, you need to select vm's Devices tab/ usb devices/ click on "motorola xxxxxx"
    if program stalls, select vm's Devices tab/ usb devices/ click on "motorola xxxxxx"
    otherwise just follow on screen instructions

    wow thank you for the time you have put in to help me on this...I appreciate it. You know how frustration can keep you from solving your problem? Well I finally just said forget I dont even care about rooting my phone anymore............then it was like an anvil was dropped on my head. I was using a wireless keyboard and that image wouldnt have drivers for it....duh . Anyways I have been away from away from messing with moto phones for awhile now....I am on .621 and the EzSBF file is for .629. I was prompted that I am better off without .629, what are the differences between .621 and .629? and do you have a link where I can obtain an the .621 Ezsbf or even an earlier Ezsbf than that???
