    Ohhhhh... so THIS is why I can't root. Bugger!

    I recently SBF'd using the leaked GB SBF (big thanks for that, made life a lot easier), and was spending the past 30 mins or so wondering why every root tool I downloaded wasn't working. The more you know!

    I hope a new root exploit is found soon...

    EDIT: Apparently there is no exploit as of now, but it is possible to preserve an existing root via an app called RootKeeper (on the market). There's a post about it on the first page of this thread.
    ...glad I didn't get to re-installing all my apps... time to SBF again... bollocks.

    Trying right now - fingers crossed that I can indeed SBF.

    EDIT: Yup, stuck at bootloader. Brickosaurus. Going to the VZW store now.


    IF YOU HAVE APPLIED THE UPDATE, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SBF!!
    You will brick your phone, kinda like I just did.

    Well, that's unfortunate as I've already accepted the OTA. I'm glad I have an upgrade this month.

    Sometimes the purpose of your (my) life is merely to serve as a warning to others.


    I just got home from the VZW store and the nice folks down there tried everything, including (what I assume was) SBFing using some special in-house tech. No dice. They are overnighting me a refurbished D3, which will be here Wednesday. I'm thankful I paid up my phone insurance.

    Moment of silence for my D2. Goodnight sweet prince

    If you update to 4.5.621 and want to retain root you must install RootKeeper first.

    RootKeeper is an app available on Google Play. Simply install, open, and run a backup. Then after installing update 4.5.621 use RootKeeper to restore root permissions.

    I can confirm it does work, and for right now at least is the only way to be rooted on Droid 2 system version 4.5.621.


    I came on here looking for answers, and this one is the best one. I've got a rooted Droid 2 and wanted to keep my root (screenshots of my phone are essential!). I got the notice to update last night, but was skeptical because I updating usually kills root. I found this forum, did what was instructed above, and it works. I was able to update and keep my root. Thanks a lot guys!!! Thank you thank you thank you!
