    Won't root. So the script won't run? What is the issue. Does it complete, does it reboot at all? Is there an error shown?

    The steps listed here should help you.

    If not, what exactly is wrong?

    Everything runs normally. There aren't any error or anything. After it's finished my phone just isn't rooted.

    Like everything runs just the same as it did before I ran the exploit

    If I were you I'd try factory resetting, or SBF'ing to 2.3.4 again. Make sure USB debugging is on. Also, try checking unknown sources. Try redownloading the root and put it in a separate folder. Run as administrator. Re install the motorola drivers as well. If that doesn't work...well I don't know.

    If you updated to 2.3.4 all you have to do is run petes one click root then you will be rooted. Works great. Make sure you have the Motorola drivers installed on you PC.

    I've tried that at least 5 times already. I've tried everything except factory reset and sbf-ing (I can't sbf because you have to be rooted, right?). Will a factory reset revert it back to android 2.2 or will i still be screwed with 2.3.4?

    Edit: nvm. I know what sbf means now. If I have to go through the trouble of reactivating the darned thing i might as well trade it for the Droid Bionic

    You don't have to be rooted to sbf. And no a factory reset does not erase the firmware ie 2.3.4 you can sbf back to froyo or GB. Then you can re root and use titanium back up to freeze the updater to eliminate update failed messages.

    Where do I get the sbf for GB? Is it possible to download an sbf for a custom rom?

    Ok I just have one more question. If I run the GB sbf, will I have to reactivate my phone?

    What's so bad about reactivating? All you do is dial *228... you make it sound like an un godly process.

    Yes you will have to re-activate. No big deal.

    Ok, so I have a dumb question. My phone is working great with rooted GB and all the mods I've done. I've read through the latest posts re: 2.3.4 (2.3.380), and no one has listed the benefits of updating. I'm wondering if I should just freeze the updater and call it a day. Any thoughts?

    heh, my over the air Gingerbread 2.3.4 wouldn't root with Pete's tool...

    I thought "Oh crap, what could I be doing wrong now with a one-click method"

    Turns out, I had the USB setting wrong and just had to turn it to "Charge Only"

    Just double check you have the right settings for everything.

    Well i tried double checking and it still wouldn't work. I guess my installation is just screwed up so i'm sbf'ing 2.3.4 and trying again with a clean install.. then im installing eclipse custom rom so i will NEVER get bothered by this crap again.
