    Hey everybody! I have been using this site ever since I got my Droid 2 over a year ago. It's been a great source of information for me so thanks to the creators, moderators and contributors. My Droid 2 turned me from a casual Google user to a superfan, and I am excited for all the things yet to come. I now have a Droid 2 Global due to an insurance replacement and after having had an Android phone for a while, I'm ready to root and get rid of Motoblur. I joined so I can find some information as well as share my experiences with rooting with others who have questions.

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!

    @Hawaiian Princess - Yes, I did receive the OTA update for GB. While looking up rooting instructions, I came across z4root, but from what I have read, this method no longer works after the update. I did find that people have had success rooting GB on the D2G forums using instructions for rooting the D3 listed on RootzWiki. I think I'll give this method a shot once I've read through all the steps, and I've decided on a rom and a backup method. People have said very good things about Fisson and AngelRom so probably give them both a try.

    I looked into Cyanogenmod, but when I checked their device listing and I clicked the link for the Droid 2, it was specifically stated that it is not for the Droid 2 Global, only the regular Droid 2. Is there a way to get it working on the global? Will it support GSM?

    Sweet! I'll root within the next couple of days and I'll try out all three of these roms in the coming weeks. Many thanks for the CM7 links! I'll let you know how it goes.
