    Buy Verizons prepaid Droid 2 Global and then unlock it

    Is it possible and recommendable to buy the prepaid Verizons droid 2 global instead of the full price one, so you save 150 dols, and then unlock it and use it with another GSM carrier outside the US? Or should I buy the ones that are for sale on ebay?

    THinking of re-rooting again.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks in advance!

    RSD Lite?

    Saw mention of RSD lite in some other posts/forums. Is that recommended for the D2G as well and is there a compatible version?

    I have a couple of questions before I root mine this weekend.

    1) How do you unroot or restore back to stock, presumably before an upgrade comes out so you don't brick the D2G if you update without thinking.

    2) I know the radio is US GSM radios are "locked" by Verizon but wasn't part of the number portability act (or another part of the agreement) supposed to be about you taking your phone with you to your next carrier so long as the radios worked? I mean if it has US GMS and CDMA you should be legally allowed to do it especially if you pay retail or pay the ETF.

    This could very well become a complaint to the FCC and/or the FTC as there is no technical reason to lock the radios, just a financial one for Verizon.

    This is all new to me, but seems to be going fairly well. Great forum BTW.

    OK went through the instructions and got rooted fine.
    I get the Superuser permission pop-up repeatedly.
    Launching Titanium backup I have to click Allow 14 times!
    I have gone into the Superuser app settings and changed notification type to Toast and also unchecked Notifications.
    Yes, I am checking the remember box on the popup and in the Superuser app, the apps I have allowed are listed.

    Came across this thread which seems to indicate installing superuser from the market doesn't work? so I'm a bit confused why it does seem to work for most?

    I have also followed the instructions here to reinstall Superuser from the zip but that did not help.
    I'm running stock. I did a hard reset before rooting and did a nandroid backup. No apps installed except the ones for rooting and backing up (terminal, barcode scanner, bootstrap, superuser, titanium backup).
    I did a full backup in titanium backup and had to click the Allow box over 100 times or so.

    Anyone have any other ideas?

    This happened to me too. It was very annoying. I'm not sure how to make it remember to allow the program

    ok, so I hard reset. I lost root, so I went through the rooting isntructions again. I stopped before updating the Superuser.apk. So far superuser seems to be remembering the allowed programs. I'm not getting the repeated pop-ups anymore. I guess I have the old version of Superuser right now. It has the Ninja icon, not the skull/bones icon.

    edit: ok, so went ahead an updated Superuser as per the original thread and it worked and everything is good. No repeated pop-ups so far and updated Superuser.

    I am going to try this today. When I need to unroot and restore to stock, I would just restore the removed apps via titanium backup and then how do you unroot so you can do an update when one is released. That is the only question I have since this seems pretty straight forward.

    Since this is all based on using the files from the microSD card it doesn't matter that I use a Mac to unzip the files?

    Instructions on manually unrooting.

    As of right now you can manually unroot, but I'm sure an .sbf will become available in the near future
    Can you post how to manually unroot, just so we can have those directions handy.
