Default [Q] Step 7 rooting problem with SuperOneClick

I just purchased a Droid x2 for my daughter to use on PagePlus. It's running 2.3.4. I followed the instructions for rooting it using SuperOneClick and get stuck at Step 7 no matter what I do. I've spent hours trying to get this to work unsuccessfully.

I'm running Win 7. I downloaded the Android SDK and have Java installed. I downloaded SOC and ran it. It finds the phone each time and just times out at Step 7. I've tried different cables, different USB ports with no success.

I downloaded PDAnet to get different drivers and that did not work.

I have NOT tried MoonShadow's method yet.

I am trying to root simply to freeze apps that I know my daughter has no interest in so as to preserve memory. If it is possible to disable cellular data (i.e., limit her to wifi), that would be a bonus.

What am I doing wrong?

TIA,
CheapDad

Unsuccessful. Tried SuperOneClick, Doomlord and Pete's. None of them would work for me. For research purposes, note that my phone is active on PagePlus (Verizon MVNO).

if magic does not work, may need to wipe data
or reflash the Firmware

another option
download ezSBF DX2 4.5.1.iso
follow Instructions for Using an .iso file
and try the root only option

As a follow up, wiping data and reflashing appears to have worked. Thank you all for the assistance.
