    Can't you just look for the Ninja?

    sigh…..

    I just ordered the Droid 2. I hope it performs better then my rooted Droid because I'm definitely not going through all this.

    There has got to be an easier way. Preferably one that works with a Mac.

    another little thing that can make life easier...

    just copy the files from Droid2Root folder into the tools folder where adb is located. In the command prompt, just cd into tools folder and work from there the entire time. No need to change directories back and forth or add adb to your path.

    Wait, just tried it and worked with no issues.

    Could someone please walk me through this? I've never had enough guts to do ADB stuff and I quickly found out why. I am getting pretty pissed at Moto and VZ for repeatedly making it harder to do what we want with our phones.

    Assuming you just want to root....you don't need to setup or install the SDK. You need to download SDK zip file but you really only need the one folder inside called "tools". All I did was extract that folder to my C drive, so it shows up as C:\tools

    Inside this folder is the adb program. open your command prompt and navigate to that directory. now type 'adb devices' to get started.

    What happens if I brick my phone by doing this incorrectly? Is there a fool proof way to recover to factory settings? I have no problem rooting as long as I can fix it myself if I mess up. Thanks.

    okay, i get to this step every time - ./rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin and then it says cannot find adb: No such file or directory

    and then it never gets to this part..

    - let the process run until it returns you to c:/Droid2Root
    what do i do???

    after I change drives to :

    C:\Users\*Uzer*\Downloads\android-sdk_r07-windows\android-sdk-windows\tools\Droid2Root

    and type "- adb push Superuser.apk /sdcard/Superuser.apk" I get the following:

    "'adb' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file"

    any ideas?
