    I have tried using the 1-2-3 method from darkonion, and I have gotten to here


    [*] CVE-2010-EASY Android local root exploit (C) 2010 by 743C

    [*] checking NPROC limit ...
    [+] RLIMIT_NPROC={3815, 3815}
    [*] Searching for adb ...
    [+] Found adb as PID 1148

    Reconnecting in 20 sec...

    * daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
    * daemon started successfully *

    Checking for devices...

    Now I know in order for it to recognize my device, USB debugging has to be on and in the notification bar. The first time it tried recognizing my device earlier in the process, I turned the phone off and back on again and it immediately recognized it. The next time I tried the same thing, only it didn't work. The USB debugging icon will not appear in the notification bar, whether its in PC mode or in Charge Only mode. Also, it doesn't recognize its plugged in at all unless I have USB debugging on, and if I unplug the phone straight from there, it doesn't recognize it was unplugged.

    Any help would be appreciated :)

    Are you recommending to just abandon what I have started and just go for Z4root?

    I do not think you are having a problem with your device being recognized. That info you typed is exactly what you are supposed to see with Darkonions program. It is running Rageagainstthecage for all that output to be spit out. The * daemon started successfully * indicates that your phone is recognized.

    The problem is that we do not know if Rageagainst the cage actually ran properly. Darkonion puts the system to sleep for 5 min to give the Rage application time to complete. If all goes well, it only takes about 90 seconds.

    I rewrote his program, because I could not make his work on my phone very well. I posted it at this link if you want to try it. It is exactly the same as his, except I get rid of a lot of the "checking" that his app does.
    I use it to root and unroot my phone.

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-2-hacks/105896-click-root-unroot-droid-2-a.html

    Just download the attached file. Save it to your desktop, and unzip it.
    Hook your phone to the computer, make sure you are "PC Mode" under usb connections. You should see a "Droid 2" in your "open apps" section at bottom of your computer.

    Open the unzipped folder and double click Root.bat. It should work fine, Just choose option 1 to root the phone.

    Hope this helps.

    PS if rageagainstthe cage runs properly your phone will turn off and come back on, and the Droid 2 Icon on bottom will go away until the phone comes back on and you will see "Reconnecting in 20 sec..." and the rest of the program outputs while it finishes up.
