Hey everybody! I have been using this site ever since I got my Droid 2 over a year ago. It's been a great source of information for me so thanks to the creators, moderators and contributors. My Droid 2 turned me from a casual Google user to a superfan, and I am excited for all the things yet to come. I now have a Droid 2 Global due to an insurance replacement and after having had an Android phone for a while, I'm ready to root and get rid of Motoblur. I joined so I can find some information as well as share my experiences with rooting with others who have questions.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!

@Hawaiian Princess - Yes, I did receive the OTA update for GB. While looking up rooting instructions, I came across z4root, but from what I have read, this method no longer works after the update. I did find that people have had success rooting GB on the D2G forums using instructions for rooting the D3 listed on RootzWiki. I think I'll give this method a shot once I've read through all the steps, and I've decided on a rom and a backup method. People have said very good things about Fisson and AngelRom so probably give them both a try.

I looked into Cyanogenmod, but when I checked their device listing and I clicked the link for the Droid 2, it was specifically stated that it is not for the Droid 2 Global, only the regular Droid 2. Is there a way to get it working on the global? Will it support GSM?
