    When I first updated the superuser was still there but I didn't really have root. I ran the one click root method by Darkonion and was good to go.

    Figured out my own problem:
    It seems when update to 2.3.2 and break root, the remnants of the root procedure from 2.2.2 (su, Superuser.apk, etc) need to be removed before redoing the root. At least, they did for me. I followed these instructions from here:
    Except, instead of the "su" step, which wont work, i subbed in the following:
    - cd /tmp
    - cp /sdcard/rage*.bin /tmp/
    - chmod 777 rage*.bin
    - ./rage*.bin
    - force stop terminal, restart terminal
    and then continued removing root "remnants".

    After the reboot, i then i re-applied the rooting procedure and it works now.

    Also, pc747, i noticed after looking at Eousphoros guide and yours, you are missing a step to make sure USB debugging is enabled. I think most will figure it out themselves, but it might save some questions later.

    Thanks!

    That sure looks like a lot of work. Why not do it the easy way?

    Which easy way? the 1 click roots? The XDA easier 1-2-3 root one here wasn't working for me last night, it kept failing.

    I couldn't try the one you mentioned because I'm at work and they don't allow us admin rights to install anything......

    AND this way i learn stuff! :)

    Hey guys, when I install the drivers from the sbf link on this thread I keep getting MTP Failed and they keep trying to re-install, I've restarted my computer and phone while plugged in and unplugged to usb, I went to device manager and manually found the driver, tried re-installing them but it keeps happening. Do I HAVE to use this version of drivers to sbf?? Because my old set of drivers worked.

    If you open rsdlite and it recognizes your phone then you are fine, but if it does not them you have the wrong drivers.

    Trying to recover my droid 2 after OTA update, I still have the Superuser Icon but it does not seem to work. I used the 1click root program to try to reroot but its not working. So I attempted to follow these steps above. First when I go into the terminal app (used "terminal emulator" from market), there are 2 $ signs, first command "cd /tmp" works and removes one of the $ signs. seccond command "cp /sdcard/rage*.bin /tmp/" returns "cp /sdcard/rage*.bin: No such file or directory"

    Kinda at a loss on what to do next. Any point in the right direction would be very appreaciated.

    I get that error as well when doing the step..

    chmod 777 rage*.bin
    Unable to chmod rage*.bin: No such file or directory

    I have a rooted stock Droid 2 which I just upgraded to 2.3.2 OTA and am trying to get root access back.

    Anyone with any ideas how to fix this?

    try this from droid life:

    SuperOneClick Still Roots DROID 2, Even on Version 2.3.20


    On 11.02.10, In DROID2, News, Root (unlock), by Kellex

    [​IMG]
    We told you about SuperOneClick a couple of weeks ago as a great source for easy rooting if you are incapable of installing the Android SDK and running a couple of adb commands. (Cheap shot!) The app has evolved a lot since then, is now on version 1.3.5, and even roots the Droid 2 running the latest 2.3.20 update. I just ran it myself, used some root-only apps, rebooted the phone a couple of times and still have access. Enjoy!
    *This should also work on the Droid X.​
    Download: SuperOneClock1.3.5.zip
    Instructions:
    *There is always some risk involved when rooting your device. You assume all risk.
    1. Download the file from above and extract into a folder on your computer.
    2. Plug your phone into your computer via USB and turn on USB Debugging.
    3. Open the folder with the SuperOneClick files and find SuperOneClick.exe and open it.
    4. Allow the process to run and when it finishes, you will be rooted.
    5. Now click the donate button in the app to support the dev.

    Thanks for the reply pc747, this is the app I have been using to try and root the phone. It is basically a loop, try to root says rooted but the screen shows a failure, try to unroot shows same. :(

    that is why it is telling you that there is no such directory. Place the rageinthe cage file on the root of your sdcard and try it again.

    Not a problem man, life happens right?

    I attempted unroot through the 1clickroot, and again stated that it was successful, with errors clearly on the screen. I checked to make sure the rage file was on the root of the sdcard and it still is. Attempted the steps from post #8 and it failed out again at the "cp /sdcard/rage*.bin /tmp/" with "/sdcard/rage*.bin: No such file or directory"

    :(

    BTW, I appreciate your help, just realized your helping me in the top sticky...
