    Went to root my brother's Droid 2 for him little while ago. Used the DoRootWin method, worked fine. Got it rooted, installed ROM Manger (it won't reboot in clockwork?) Found Droid2Strap or something, flashed the recovery and it rebooted into clockworkmod, I installed ApeX ROM, booted about twice now it's stuck in the Motorola logo.

    Help? lol

    Did you wipe data and cache before installing?

    I think I forgot before installing the ROM, I went back to do it after though, wiped both, reinstalled the ROM and have been stuck on the logo since. Can't get back into recovery I see the droid with the ! sign.

    Ok. Are you holding "up" or "x" on the keyboard + power to get to recovery? How did you dl'd the ROM?

    Seems you may have lost root access which is not uncommon with the one click methods

    Through ROM Manager. I held x and it wouldn't boot into a recovery. Luckily I tried holding up the dpad and am able to access RSD Lite on my PC. I am going to try and flash the sbf 2.3.20 file I found from that thread.

    You're going have to excuse me guys I'm used to my Droid 1 :D

    Does ROM Manager and clockwork usually work no problem on the Droid 2?

    Before you sbf, press enter on the physical keyboard (I think) at the exclamation mark and see if it takes you into stock recovery. mwhartman is probably right too.

    Hitting the search button took me to Android recovery, did I lose root?

    Possible. Do a factory reset and hit reboot system now and see if you get past the M.

    What is your recommendation on rooting? Re-try the one click or go a different route?

    edit: wiped cache and data in android recovery and still stuck on the M

    If you wanna keep it simple, I recommend z4root. Excellent app!

    Still stuck on the M logo after wiping data/cache in Android Recovery. Waiting for the sbf to finish downloading. I'll flash that through RSD Lite then give z4root a shot.

    When trying to flash in RSD Lite I get: Failed flashing process. Unable to retrieve initialization values from INI file.

    Agree. What is your current status? If you hit the search and you got data what caused that?

    In order to flash the sbf I think I actually need to be able to get into the phone which I can't right now. Wiping the data/cache and rebooting did not get me past it though so far.
