    I tried to use the one click root method by Psouza but I keep getting a jit exception error. The crappy part is I cannot post the pop up error box on. Xda as a new member cannot post url links. If anyone has run across this error and can point me in the right direction.

    Make sure USB debugging is enabled. Try a different USB port. Or try a different USB cable.

    run one click on computer more here
    1. Make sure you have Motorola drivers installed - LINK to x64 drivers(64-bit) LINK to x86 drivers(32-bit)
    2. Download and unzip 'MotorolaOneClickRoot_psouza4' - LINK MotorolaOneClickRoot_psouza4
    3. On your phone: Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging(check box)
    4. Plug phone into computer and select "Charge Only" mode
    5. Navigate to 'MotorolaOneClickRoot_psouza4' folder and run 'MotorolaOneClickRoot.exe'
    6. Now just follow the instructions in the command window and unlock the phone after each reboot.

    suppose to work on droid 3

    The Droid2 should totally be able to be rooted this way. I'm pretty sure, I did my stepdads this way, but now I can't remember.... just check out the carious paged here and make sure to try all the things like make sure USB debuggin is on, try different usb ports, etc..

    I got up the courage to try to root and got these lousy errors from the one-touch software. Can someone provide feedback on this? I'm a computer geek but not a phone geek so I'm in over my technical level.

    Thanks

    Awesome, worked perfect, thanks! Switched from my workhorse running XP-Prp to my laptop running Win7 and followed the instructions, very easy. Thanks again!! dancedroid:icon_ banana:
