i noticed u can cut a few steps out of the original after for whatever reason i got stuck on them as my comp was saying no such file or extension. even though they were there. you still have to use adb shell but not as much. (insert usual its not my fault if you turn your phone into a paperweight here) get the files How to root the Droid 2 - xda-developers if that link doesnt work they are not far away, pick any other thread and grab em. extract it make sure its named droid2root. now check to make sure when you open the droid2root folder there isnt another folder inside named same (happens when u unzip sometimes) as in when u open folder it should go straight to the 4 files inside. now put the 4 files in the root of your sd card AND inside your C:/android/tools folder u should already have from setting up adb. when you are done with this make sure u delete them. - Open command prompt - cd c:/android/tools - adb devices (to verify the connection) - adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin - adb shell - cd data/local/tmp - chmod 0755 rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin - ./rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin - let the process run until it returns you to c:/Droid2Root (wait a while. please if u do not get the # after step it says u will repeat the last command. may need to reboot the phone) - cd c:/android/tools - adb devices (to verify the connection) - adb shell (you should now have a # prompt, if not see above) - mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system - cd c:/android/tools - adb push /Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk - adb push /su /system/bin/su - adb push /busybox /system/bin/busybox - adb shell - chmod 4755 /system/bin/su - chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox - mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system - exit - exit im pretty sure thats it. hope this is somewhat easier. if i missed something let me know ill edit it, but this is what i did, and it worked. note some of this is taken from other peoples guides, so im not taking credit for anything, just hoping this helps someone.
