    I did not get a chance to try the "easy 1 2 3" method. My first attempt was to using this method while having it connected to a PC.

    How to root the Droid 2 - xda-developers

    I couldn't get it to work, so my next try was to use the non-PC method and it worked.

    Hi.
    Just got my D2 Friday (thanks Free Phone Friday!)...and I did the OTA to 2.2.20. I have not done the 2.3.20 update yet (tho there is now a SBF for that one out there, so it's probably safe now).

    Will this no-PC rooting method still work with the latest Motorola 2.3.20?

    While I had no problem installing ROMS on my D1, I'm a little more hesitant to do so on the D2, but I do want root.

    Thanks,
    john

    Just received the OTA update and used the same shell script I wrote for this method to root my phone once again in under a minute. Thanks again!

    If your asking if it works after the system update then yes.

    So according to this, this method works on the D2 Global as well. I tried a different method which didn't work so I'm going to try this one and see if I have any luck.

    Alright so I rooted about 2 months ago using this method when my D2 was running 2.2.20 I got the OTA update to 2.3.20 but before I updated I unrooted using the unroot section here. Now I'm trying to get rooted again using this and from here down

    - mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    - cp /sdcard/Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk
    - cp /sdcard/su /system/bin/su
    * cp /sdcard/busybox /system/bin/busybox
    - chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
    * chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox
    - mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    - exit

    Nothing works it says the files are read only even with # in the terminal, and the Superuser app cannot be uninstalled (its grayed out) from my phone. I'm thinking of wiping and starting over. Any ideas?
