    don't worry, ill help you out. im about to root my phone right now, the xda root method isn't working for me so im going back to this one. r u certain you're not typing anything incorrectly? a simple extra space or no slash could mess it up

    Im encountering problems trying to get it working for me too. I've just typed alll the stuff in twice, no # # signs. Did you download and install the update for the Droid 2 last night?

    If it isn't working, it could be that the person who told u it works was wrong. I'm sure there are several ways to easily root your droid x, there's a much bigger community there than there is for the Droid 2
