First of all, I have searched Google for my problem and haven't seen a real straight forward answer (or one that I can understand). I don't know what most abbreviations mean, etc. So if you could answer as simply as possible (or give a brief explanation of something) if you are to use more technical terms I would appreciate it!
Now, I have a Droid 2 Global, just installed the new update, to Gingerbread (I guess). When I look in my phone information it says 2.3.3. Before I installed the latest update, I had rooted my phone with z4root, and it worked very simply. Got the job done. Now, after updating (foolishly, without unrooting first) I no longer have a rooted phone. The update apparently unrooted my phone, but I still have Superuser on it. I try to reroot with z4root (which is still on my phone) but it didn't work, and from what I have now read it doesn't work with Gingerbread. I also tried to root with the Petes Motorola Root Tools and that seemed like it would work, but after 15 minutes or so was still running exploit. I'm assuming its not working because I already have Superuser, but I don't know how to get passed that.
I have read that a possible solution is to sbf (don't really know what that is) back to a previous version and then root (or something like that) but it didn't really click with me, probably being written from an admin on a forum who knows a heck of a lot more than I do. So, what would be a simple way to do this? Also would it clear data on my phone, and how would I go about backing it up?
Sorry if the question has been asked already, maybe my searching skills need improvement. Just point me in the right direction if you have seen a fix for this. Hopefully it's not very complicated and doesn't involve me clearing the data on my phone...I don't really want a big hassle. But either way, thanks for reading, and thanks in advance for whatever you can tell me.
