    So what I need is an easy root that you can do on a Mac.
    I am in the same exact boat... let me know if you get a one button push for root on the d2 hook. please..

    make sure the path to adb is added


    1. right-click '(My) Computer'
    2. Select 'Properties'
    3. Go to 'Advanced' or whatever tab you find 'Environment Variables'
    4. Select 'Path' then 'Edit' and add in your new path to where adb is

    i rooted my droid, now in attempt to root my droid 2... i ran into issues with the extensions on the droid2root.rar file. i'm using windows vista at this moment, but am usually using windows 7. could this possibly be my problem? i know 7 excludes the extension to any file name, whereas vista doesn't. but even when i included the ".rar in the command prompt, it said it couldn't be found. someone, help?

    You need to open the Droid2Root.rar and extract the four files in it. su, busybox, rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin, and Superuser.apk.

    I can't get any commands to work, I get the message command not recognized.

    I edited my path and rebooted.
    I have the D2 set at pc mode, and I tried it with charge only. With charge only the D2 actually says it's in debugging mode.

    I'm running Vista 32 bit.

    I extracted the SDK and the motorola drivers, the drivers won't install because I have a higher version already installed that came with the D2. I also have the droid2root files extracted and in the tools folder.

    I originally had it in android-sdk-windows but moved it to DROID2 because it was easier to type.

    I go to c:\DROID2\tools
    type adb devices and I get command not recognized.

    Had the same problem when it was in android-sdk-windows.

    Thanks, but no need. A much easier method has been written on this site.

    I'm rooted.
