    I used a tweaked version. DROID 3 easy root script v7.zip. Be sure you have the latest Moto drivers and when you close the screen unplug from usb and reboot phone.

    What do you mean latest moto drivers? I'm tired of the memory issues/redraws and wanted to root the phone finally. I guess I should back stuff up first too.

    Ok, mine already work but I'll get the latest anyway. If this doesn't work will I risk bricking the phone, or will it just not work? I know normal rooting doesn't risk it but this seems fishy to me with the OTA GB update and whatnot.

    If it doesnt work youre phone will be fine, just search the forums for the bootstrap recovery so you can make a backup if you mess something up after youre rooted. I used the one click method and it didnt work the first couple of times but after that it was fine.

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-x2-hacks/156070-sbf-file-rsd-lite-drivers-instructions.html

    I see it listed there so I guess I'll use that one.

    If I have this correct in my mind, the bootstrap lets you recover from a more serious problem? At first I thought it was just to back your data and files up but it seems more than that.

    And can I get a basic overview with what I do with the D3 one click version here? I'll try to find it on the forums but if I can't I want to get this out here so someone can guide me without wasting a whole day of looking. It looks like I set the phone to Charge Only, then run the .bat file and follow instructions. Is that it?

    Well, I ran MyBackup Pro as a precaution and used the link above, looks like I'm rooted... I tried to install AdFree and it asked for SuperUser permission and seems to work... That was pretty painless, now I need to figure out how to get started freezing garbage software and getting rid of my memory issues.

    Sorry I didnt get back, ive been at work. You definitely need to get the bootstrap recovery, it basically allows you to make a backup of your entire system so you can go back to that if you mess anything up. If you are going to freeze or uninstall anything or flash any roms it is essential. Some apps.that you can use to freeze/uninstall are bloat freezer and titanium backup, you can get them on the market.

    I'll work on getting that now, but I didn't want to get into it before rooting, I thought rooting would be a lot more involved with the OTA GB update. It worked first time with no issues though.

    I bought TiBackup too and went through a list on XDA to freeze a bunch of stuff. Not sure if it worked or not, they still show up in the app list and I think TiBackup said they wouldn't. Maybe a reboot would help.

    Thanks for the help though.

    So you rooted a DX2 on 2.3.3 using the Droid3 MotorolaOneClickRoot_psouza4.zip method. I had been thinking about trying it myself since it was reported to possibly work on other devices than just the D3. Thanks for your verification.


    I do have one question though.. Have you tried wireless_tether_2_0_7 or any of the 3.0+ betas? Does the WiFi Tehering app work? Do you get random reboots, if it does work? I have heard various things such as it works but not in access control mode, to it not working at all in gingerbread. Im not even sure if it works in 2.2.2. I would like to know anyones input on this subject, since i see one of the only real reasons to root right now would be for Wireless Tether, considering the lack of stable ROMs at this time.

    Any input would be greatly appreciated. And Thanks for posting your results with the 2.3.4 method. It sounds much easier than reverting to froyo, gingerbreaking, bootstrapping and backing up, then installing a pre-rooted GB (which i already have, minus root) only to see if i can wifi tether. Wifi Tether still works great on my OG Droid BTW.

    Yeah, it doesn't seem to work for everyone. I had trouble because I was downloading the file on my phone and transferring it to my computer ( I don't have internet access at home). Once i downloaded it using a computer it worked fine. Also, are you extracting the files after you dl?
