I replied about this in your other thread.

There are several one-click methods out there but the one I used did report working on the DX2. I used the one referenced earlier in this thread...I think it was from RootzWiki.
EDIT: One-Click method that worked for me.
For those of you having ADB problems with the manual method, you still have to turn on USB debugging on your phone (any android phone) for ADB to be able to work with it. Also, I wouldn't use any version later than v6 since they changed a bunch of stuff making it harder to work with. I also have a file called "proxoid.exe" that contains just adb.exe and the .dll file if you want to do a totally stripped down install of ABD.
Now don't forgtet to install busybox one way or another . . . .
Hey guys, i just did the one click method from Rootzwiki (link was given previously) it worked flawlessly. Thanks...now all we gotta figure out is if theres a way to unroot the phone. Only because i have insurance on the phone :icon_evil:
Wouldnt a factory reset do the trick?
nope, factory reset only clears the data and cache partitions. the su and superuser apk are on the system partition.
to unroot, you just need to change anything you changed back to the way it was then remove SuperUser.apk, su, and busybox
Soooo if u root your phone and it has insurance what happens?

I don't think root matters for insurance. but root does void warranties.
I know this is a very noob/stupid question. Ok so since my phone is now rooted and superuser is installed. Ive been told to download rootmanager. What do i do now? lol. If anyone can send me a PM to not disrupt this thread id appreciate it. I do appologise for the stupid question. Im just very excited to finally have root on my droid.
They never FIX your phone with insurance anyway, you get a refurb. So whats the difference of sending in a working phone or a smashed phone?
pieces** btw =]
When I go into Root manager and i flash clockwork mod recovery, the droid 3 does not show up as a phone model
That is because there is not a compatable custom recovery for the Droid 3. For now, I would be VERY carefull what you do to this phone. there's already a thread elsewhere with someone SCREAMING for an .sbf file since he (they) nose dived into their phone and have already rendered them un-useable.
PLEASE people, do NOT delete ANYTHING!!! I repeat DO NOT ELETE ANYTHING FROM /system. If you must, either rename it from .apk to .bak or use the 'freeze' function within TiBu (I personally would do the former). This is the same advice we gave and took when root was first found for the Droid 1 and before a reliable custom recovery was created.
So is there is no way to back up the current rom? if im understanding correct.
You are correct.
No way to overclock yet I am assuming?
I'm sure it won't take long.

I figured out why I am losing root access on reboot. The default.props file keeps getting written over so the line "ro.sys.atvc_allow_all_adb=1" gets returned to "ro.sys.atvc_allow_all_adb=0" on every single reboot.
Anybody have an idea why?
If anything I can change the file back to what its suppose to be after each reboot but that is quite a pain.
If you are losing root on your phone after a reboot, then you haven't put the su binary into /system/xbin and chmod to 6755 PLUS haven't put the Superuser.apk file into /system. If you mean that you don't have root when hooked up to your pc and then opening adb shell, try typing in the command 'su' while in adb shell. You should then be presented with the '#' cursor.
