Direct root method for Android 2.3.4 on D2G,D2,DX, and DX2
I posted this on Rootzwiki, but figured I would post it here as well, and hopefully it is helpful for someone.
Since all these devices seem to be vulnerable to the same exploit found by phifc at
New root method for stock 2.3.4 (621/622) found (Droid2, R2D2) - Droid 2 / R2D2 / Milestone 2 / Droid 2 Global - RootzWiki
I have assembled rooting methods for all of them in EzSbf style CD. I have tested it on my D2G, and the same method has been tested by multiple users on the D2/R2D2, and has worked fine.
Credit for this method go to phifc, djrbliss, and the others who developed the method.
I have simply taken the method, and assembled the tools.
Credit for the idea behind the CD method should go to 1KDS, as I have mostly patterned this CD after his method.
Credit should also go to Skrilax_CZ, as without his Motorola Android Firmware (De)packer, we wouldn't be able to have a 55 meg CD that covers multiple devices.
Special thanks also to themib for testing and troubleshooting on the DroidX2. In fact, since I don't have a DX2, he actually did a majority of the work in finding a method that would work (the method for the D2 and D2G doesn't quite work), and then we worked together to get it assembled and working.
From what I can see, it should work for the Droid X as well, and Western Senju Ero-sannin on the rootzwiki DroidX forum reports that is has worked for him.
This CD is for the D2,R2D2, D2G, and DX on Android version 2.3.4, and the DX2 on 2.3.5.
Of course, like all other things here, I have done my best on this, but there are no guarantees, and anything you do on your phone is at your own risk.
So, without further ado, here is a link for the CD
and the md5 is
Newbie has some dumb questions
Want to root my phone, but I don't quite think I fully understand the full process. Do I have to burn the ISO file to a CD and boot off of it? I'm not clear on what the steps are. Sorry, for what most of you may be a dumb question, but I don't want to mess this up. Never rooted a phone before. I have a Droid 2 that is running 2.3.4.
Oh, and what does it mean "you need to SBF your phone"?
