    After upgrading my Droid 2 Global to 4.5.608A956.... Wifi Tethering?

    I have search the forum for help with this topic, but have not found what I am looking for. Please forgive an old guy for asking what may have already been answered.

    Two days ago, I finally decided to let Verizon upgrade my phone. They kept sending me reminders. So I used GScript Lite to re-bloat my phone and z4root to remove the root. (Thanks to the creators of those fine programs, by the way. They were wonderful.) The phone is running Android 2.33.

    I downloaded the update and ran it. It scared me at first because several features were sluggish or non functioning. After rebooting the phone 3 times, those problems vanished. Yes, my battery life seems to have improved. I even got used to the new look, though I preferred the old. Neither z4root or GScript Lite seem to work on my phone, alas!

    But now I am looking for a one-click script to re-root my phone and to de-bloat my phone. It appears that the folks who enjoy doing these projects have all moved on to newer devices, and new one-clicks may never again appear for the Droid 2 Global.

    I would love to find out that I am wrong, and will send a bag of Kona coffee to the one who helps me reactivate Wifi Tether, or an equivalent.
    Aloha,

    You need the DROID3 One-Click Root script, or Pete's Motorola Root Tools, or any other implementation that works on a DROID3, DROIDX, DROIDX2, DROID2, DROID2 GLOBAL, DROID RAZR, and all other phones using Motorola's Gingerbread firmware.

    Installing Motorola_End_User_Driver_Installation_5.2.0_64bit. msi?

    I visited
    http://www.droid-life.com/2011/08/25/droid3-1-click-easy-root-already-released/
    and downloaded the drivers and the Droid3 easy root script.

    How do I install the drivers?

    forgot about that, not sure where that was suppose to go, you may not need drivers just the one click root

    1. Download and
    Fully Unzip 'Droid3_Easy_Root_v7d' - LINK Droid3_Easy_Root_v7d
    2. On your phone: Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging(check box)
    3. Plug phone into computer and select "Charge Only" mode
    4. Navigate to wherever you extracted it and run the file 'run_to_root_your_droid3.sh'
    5. Now just follow the instructions in the command window and unlock the phone after each reboot.
