    Rooted and Band-Unlocked

    Well, I not only got my phone rooted, but it is now band-unlocked so I can use USA GSM services, such as AT&T and T-Mobile. At first, I just rooted the phone. Yet, I wanted it band-unlocked, too. So I searched and got the help I needed. Details can be viewed in this discussion: Band Unlocking on D2G Sys 4.5.629 with Android 2.3.4 ? - Droid 2 / R2D2 / Milestone 2 / Droid 2 Global - RootzWiki

    I flashed the ROM back to Froyo, using RSDLite, then used BEH's Recovery & Root CD. After that, I installed Droid 2 Bootstrapper, and used that to install TBH's Unlock.zip. Thoroughly read the referenced links in the discussion thread link above. The information is invaluably helpful.

    NOTE: If you want to do this whole procedure and band-unlock your D2G, you must first SIM-unlock it by getting an unlock code from Motorola, Verizon, or a third party source (there are many on the internet).

    If the photos are on your SD card then all you need is a card reader and any of the free SD Card recovery programs. Recuva from here should work just fine: 6 Data Recovery Tools for SD Cards, USB Drives and More | PCWorld

    Here is the story. I had an app to organize photos but it was making my phone misbehave so i uninstalled it. I went into my files and deleted the file for that app considering i wasn't going to get it again but as i deleted the file i noticed it was taking too long to delete and then the next day when i was looking for a photo i seen my photos where wiped out (completely gone) until i seen app that claim to get them back but they all say my phone needs to be rooted.

    re's
    Just attempted (3 times) to use the link on page 1 of this thread after burning it as in iso to a cd...
    First off after the pc reboots on the cd it checks the pc's system and asks what sound card I want to configure... no biggie I just hit enter, it then checks and see's the phone runs the start up script asks which phone... I select option 1 (droid 2/r2r2)... it mounts (I guess) and has me go to bootloader... it then "erases data" and I wait and wait as it installs... after about 10 minutes of watching the percentage count up it says it will reboot the phone then continue with the rooting process... the phone reboots... but the program just sits there smiling at me as if it is still waiting for the phone to do something.
    I've attempted to rebot the phone a couple of times thinking the program "just didn't see the phone rebooting" or something but nothing ever happens... I finally use the ctrl-alt-del to get the pc out of just sitting there (after removing the cd)... I am using windows 7 but that shouldn't really matter since it's booting off the cd anyway.
