    I'm back because I want to root my Droid 2 Global again. Needless to say I have been trying to figure this out for the past 3 hours. I actually got the z4 root on my droid today, but I keep getting message that its been denied superuser permission. So far I have been on this site, xda, you tube.  Everything is from 2010. I know I have to read and follow instructions but these posts look so outdated and I just want to know if its still possible like it once was. All I want to have is the capability of doing screen shots. I will gladly pay DarkOnion if I can get the 2012 version of root! Sorry for the rant.

    Use pete's one click root. Works for d2g just fine. Read the FAQ thread in the d2g forum.

    That is a great FAQ, but I know what about 80% of those terms mean. Didn't see anything about Pete. Did a search on Pete's one click, but just takes me back to some 2009 post that is outdated.

    Thank you Bruben. I have honestly been working on this all morning. Not trying to find the easy way out, just a little direction. I appreciate your help!

    Ok......found it

    http://www.psouza4.com/Bionic/

    Works for d2g, z4 stopped working on gingerbread. I can confirm this works on d2g GB because I use it on mine.
    Good luck!

    Thank you small-town girl! I have been here before, but it's been a looong time. I have a mac, so I don't think that link is going to work for me.

    It doesn't say where I am suppose to dnld the zip file. Phone or Mac? I tried dnldg it to my phone using web browser and it says dnld unsuccessful.

    Ok, I put the file on my phone and unzipped it, then what? The only thing that will open is superuser.apk and I get a parsing error. BTW, I have superuser already on my phone.

    I will willingly donate to whoever successfully takes credit for rooting my phone, lol!
