    Hi All,

    Is there a safe way i can root my verizon droid running 2.3.4 and system vrsion 4.5.621. I thought i read that rooting this version was blocked and i also read that flashing back to an older version that is rootable will brick my phone. I was wondering if there was a way to root this phone.??


    Thanks!

    I am having the same trouble as this guy.

    When I tried to root via easy toolkit rooting (v4.0)

    Code:
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
                  Easy rooting toolkit (v4.0)
                       created by DooMLoRD
            using exploit zergRush (Revolutionary Team)
       Credits go to all those involved in making this possible!
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
     [*] This script will:
         (1) root ur device using latest zergRush exploit (21 Nov)
         (2) install Busybox (1.18.4)
         (3) install SU files (binary: 3.0.3 and apk: 3.0.6)
         (4) some checks for free space, tmp directory
             (will remove Google Maps if required)
     [*] Before u begin:
         (1) make sure u have installed adb drivers for ur device
         (2) enable "USB DEBUGGING"
               from (Menu\Settings\Applications\Development)
         (3) enable "UNKNOWN SOURCES"
               from (Menu\Settings\Applications)
         (4) [OPTIONAL] increase screen timeout to 10 minutes
         (5) connect USB cable to PHONE and then connect to PC
         (6) skip "PC Companion Software" prompt on device
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
     CONFIRM ALL THE ABOVE THEN
    Press any key to continue . . .
