    So I got my droid 2 global today and setup and everything. Now I want to root it, but when I got to download z4root my computer quarantines the files and says its a trojan virus. Anyone know where I could get this and be able to actually use it?

    Rooting

    Your anti-virus is hitting on this program because it changes root system files that affect the operating system. If you could do some kind of whitelist, or maybe disable your anti-virus for a bit, you should be able to get it through.

    Also, you can go through your phone's browser and download it directly to your SD Card. You may have to download Astro or something similar from the market to be able to see it, but Astro is free.

    If that doesn't work, search on this forum for ways to access it on your phone.

    Those are the only 2 options. Disable your AV, or download directly to the phone from the phone. Well unless you want to go to the trouble of booting a live linux distro lol.

    Check the links in my sig for rooting the Droid 2....Z4 is linked there and ready for download to your phone. It MIGHT come through as a .txt file....if that is the case replace the txt with apk and you are good to go.

    For what its worth, z4 didn't work for me... I used a oneclick rooter for the pc and had to reboot my phone while connected to get it to take.

    Didnt work..how? Was it just sitting on the screen forever? Thats normal sometimes. You just close the app out and try again. Most the time it works on the first try, sometimes it takes 3 or 4 tries but it always works.

    Go to the quarantine and look for the option to make it a exclusion to scans.

    Why am I not using my TB you ask. The droid is where it all began.

    That's odd.. try getting the Download All Files app from the market, and then downloading the zip file. Hope that helps.

    And don't forget to go to Settings > Applications, and check Unknown Sources. That way it'll let you install it.
