At this point I'm willing to try anything.
Does anyone know if you actually do need the same brand cable as your phone? I don't see why another cable wouldn't work if its compatible with the phone and the pc detects it right?
Well so as people are not completely confused, this is the other part of the issue you are talking about now. Otherwise what you are asking does not really makes sense: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/ne...sistance/202562-welcome-post.html#post2054795
I have read more then one time where people switching to the factory cable helped but I am sure you will get mixed reviews, as I said it is not a definite. Have you tried anything like doing a factory reset or a different computer? Also, I know the D2G and DX both have recent updates that can not be rooted but I am not sure about the D2, have you gotten one lately?
I apologize for crossing questions on the thread. The only recent update I recieved is the Google Play Store.
No need to apologize, I knew because I was involved in both but others will likely not. Just thought I would help them and you out by throwing in the link. And I meant OS updates, I have not read about one for the D2 yet so I was just checking in case.
No there haven't been any OS updates since I received the phone, it came running GB 2.3.3
The root tutorial I am following says to make sure usb debugging icon is displaying in notifications. I am not totally sure what this icon looks like because nothing changes when I turn debugging on or off. Help?
Just make sure its on. Don't worry about the icon.

Alright, just trying to figure out why it won't root, my next step is using a different computer, if that doesn't work then I believe my D2 may not be rootable.
When I run the rooting program it says transferring superuser.apk and after that it says 0 bytes transferred. Why isn't it allowing the data to transfer?
Can anyone post a link or tutorial on how to manually root the Droid 2, I can't seem to find anything about it.
Try using this version of the tool, it always worked wonders on my Droid X and Droid 2
