    [​IMG] How to root the Droid 2
    Setup:
    - Install adb (here) and Motorola drivers (here)
    - Download attached archive
    - Extract to a directory, I used c:\Droid2Root
    - Make sure you have USB degugging enabled
    - Change connection to PC Mode

    Process:
    - Open command prompt
    - cd c:/wherever-your-sdk-tools-folder-is
    - adb devices (to verify the connection)
    - cd c:/Droid2Root
    - adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
    - adb shell
    - cd data/local/tmp
    - chmod 0755 rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
    - ./rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin

    - let the process run until it returns you to c:/Droid2Root
    - cd c:/wherever-your-sdk-tools-folder-is
    - adb devices (to verify the connection)
    - adh shell (you should now have a # prompt)
    - exit

    - cd c:/Droid2Root
    - adb push Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk
    - adb push su /system/bin/su
    - adb push busybox /system/bin/busybox
    - adb shell
    - chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
    - chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox
    - exit

    I'm sure there are certain steps that could be streamlined or eliminated, so please feel free to make a suggestion and I'll edit the post.

    - let the process run until it returns you to c:/Droid2Root
    - cd c:/wherever-your-sdk-tools-folder-is
    - adb devices (to verify the connection)
    - adb shell (you should now have a # prompt)
    - mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    - cp /sdcard/Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk
    - cp /sdcard/su /system/bin/su
    - cp /sdcard/busybox /system/bin/busybox
    - chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
    - chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox
    - mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    - exit
    - exit

    im looking around, but like I told a few others, its a similar process to rooting the droid x, so it wont be long before a one button root process is out.
