    Did you re-run all of the steps you used to root? Chmod, setup debug mode, etc?

    Is the method listed in the OP still a valid way to gain root on the droid 2? I have all the latest OTA updates (2.3 I believe?)

    I picked up the z4root and rooted successfully. If something ever happens to this app though and I need to unroot, can it be done without it?
