    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-news/75015-how-root-droid-2-2-out-rsdlite.html
    using rom manager
    when i get to the "Creating a nandroid backup" and i click on “Reboot into Recovery.” its just reboots the phone. none of the options come up. what am i doing wrong? sometimes i get a white triangle with a yellow explanation mark and a phone next to it on the screen.

    I used UAR to root my phone and I had all kinds of issues with ROM Manager. That triangle you are getting is the stock recovery. Find the thread from Moto1, here is the link. It is easy pie and haven't had a problem with a ROM since. Here is the link.

    OP, if you can get into Rom Manager reflash ClockWork Recovery then flash the alternate recovery SPRecovery the re flash ClockWork.

    Then try to boot into recovery and see if you have ClockWork recovery.

    Verizon/Motorola threw a wrench into the works with a new bootloader that a lot of people got with the FRG01B update. If you have the 2C. 7C. bootloader you'll HAVE to use RSD Lite to get the kind of root access you want.

    Fact of life. Sorry.

    Power your phone down, slide out the keyboard, hold up on the d-pad (towards the screen), and power the phone up. Keep holding the d-pad till the bootloader screen appears. It'll tell you what you have.

    I know there's a way to do it on Mac, but I think the easiest way to do it is in a virtual box with Windows loaded.

    Any way to load a Linux live CD, or have a Linux box kicking around?

    With the new bootloader the only weapon we have in our arsenal is the SBF MotoCahce1 created. Let me link you. I don't know if there are instructions for a Mac install in the thread, but there might be.

    Yes it's that simple, no you don't need to do it. Just follow those directions and unless somethign goes oops you'll have SPRecovery and full control over the phone! :)

    I just un-installed UAR without unrooting and ran Moto's SBF and everything worked out great. Also, I downloaded Titanium backup (free in the market) and did a backup there, you can save all your apps and data. Just root using Moto's instructions, re-download Titanium back up from the market and restore all your previous apps.
