    Glad I was able to help.

    Progress on modifying the droid 2 has been painfully slow. So I decided that I have to actually start contributing. Like the saying goes, if you want something done, do it yourself. ;)

    Does pressing [ok]+k at the same time give you what you want? What are you trying to do?

    Also I recommend using the busybox sh.

    The up arrow should give you what you want

    That's what I did.
    It works for you?
    EDIT: Got it.

    So I was rooted with easyroot before the update and I really want to get rooted again. My problem has been that all I have are Macs. When I saw this thread I definitely got excited. So, my question is: will this work on Moto Droid? Also, I have easyroot, Rom manager, and Busybox still installed. Would I need to get rid of any of them that could cause complications? Thanks

    First, many thanks for the guide, Eousphoros.

    Second, is there an extra step that some of us need to do? I'm stuck at the same point as abruns, I run './rage*.bin' (it mentions not finding adb before quitting), force close the terminal, reopen, and I'm still stuck with a $, not a #.

    Any thoughts?

    Try enabling USB debugging. Lemme know if that works.

    EDIT: so I just tried disabling USB debugging and got this error. So enabling USB debugging should fix that. I have updated the guide. Thanks for the catch.

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-2-rooted-help/75277-rooting-mac-osx.html is a good spot to check.

    With all the command line questions...anyone know where the pipe symbol is? I gave up looking for it on my Droid 1 long ago in Terminal Emulator.

    The only place I have found it is in the symbol section of the swype keyboard app. :(

    It's on the regular virtual keyboard too. I used it and I don't use swype.

    Just google Droid2Root.rar.

    As for one click method, the process isn't that hard unless you aren't very good at following simple directions.
