    Droid 1 2.2.3 unrooted :(

    Root 2.2.3 without PC?

    Well... I have a Droid 2.2.3. Whenever I connect it to my windows 7, it shows up as "device has malfunctioned, device.. unknown" everytime. I have tried reinstalling drivers, etc but the Computer never recognizes it as a Motorola device.

    Also, my phone doesn't charge when the phone is on and connected to the pc, but when the phone is connected to the PC and I turn the phone off, it charges (but then it wont turn on unless I disconnect it).

    Also, whenever it is connected, it never shows the USB icon/ or anything in the notification bar. So, I havent been able to root it yet. I have tried on 3 other computers (XP, 7, 7) and 3 other USB cables. Same results.



    I want to root my Droid 2.2.3, I have tried z4root app, but it doesn't support 2.2+



    How can I root my Droid without a PC, can I use terminal, etc and do it on the phone itself?

    The method you have linked there is for a Droid 2. I am assuming since you are running 2.2.3 that you have a Droid 1, is that correct?

    Then in that case I am pretty sure you need a PC to do it at this point. From what I understand all the "one-clicks" or apps have not been updated since the latest update. If you would like I can get you a link of a method that will work, it just requires a PC.

    Let me know how it goes. I was lead to believe (read it somewhere, not here) SOC does not work on 2.2.3 but if it does that would be good to know.

    I need help here too... never rooted my D1, been shopping for new phones but unhappy with the selection available.

    I really just want to overclock this thing so I don't have to wait so long for everything to happen.

    Help!

    Are you also running 2.2.3? As I said earlier I believe you will need a PC to do it since the apps that rooted the Droid 1 have not been updated in quite some time. If you need a link to the PC method I will try and grab the link for you.

    OK, I got it rooted, tried installing the latest "stable" Cyanogen mod, 7.1.0 and it just gets stuck in a boot loop.

    I really just want to overclock. What's the simplest way to accomplish this? I don't care about themes and other stuff... the phone is just too slow.
