    So, I decided to finally root my Droid 2. The appeal of wireless tethering is what prompted me. After the first successful root, superuser was installed and working. I then proceeded to install ROM Manager. That's where things went downhill.

    Superuser disappeared completely. "Superuser Permissions" was there, but the app itself just UP AND LEFT. I tried to reroot it using the one-click method that I used to root in the first place. It didn't reinstall. I tried the older two-step method rooting. No luck.

    I tried ADB in Command Prompt to possibly uninstall the leftover bits. Nothing. I even went as far as to reset the gosh-darned phone to factory settings, format the SD card, and then root it. NOTHING.

    The phone roots just fine, but Superuser... Just. Won't. ****ing. Install.

    I'm out of options, patience, and time. Searches and thread prowling haven't given me any successful fixes. Now I come looking for your help.

    Note: If I can't get it to work eventually, I'm selling the phone on eBay and buying an iPhone. (Just joking. :))

    Have you tried searching in the market for it. Sometimes it appears there.

    Hahahaha. Yea, I also forgot to mention that whenever I try to install it from the market it says "Installation of Superuser unsuccessful."

    That's why I tried the ADB and terminal sessions to fix that. The Official Superuser thread had suggested deleting the left over bits that way.
