This opens up custom ROMs, like CM7. This does not unlock the bootloader or allow custom kernels.
It has been tested on one Droid X2 so far. I recommend only developers play with this for now. It is not that useful be itself, but expect to see lots of new things happen based on this.
I welcome feedback. Also feel free to Donate via the "Donate to me" link under my username, top left, on XDA. Donate out of gratitude for this work, not for promises of future work.
I would like to give a special thanks to religi0n/relax. He stepped up to help me test 2nd-init, and worked with me across multiple days. Since I don't own a Droid X2, this wouldn't have happened without him.
This apk requires SuperUser.apk to already be installed, and working. Ignore any references to the Atrix. This apk is custom for the Droid X2, but I didn't change all references to the Atrix in the apk. I will be working on an updated apk that doesn't mention the Atrix.
Steps for the apk:
1. Get it on the phone however you like
2. Install the apk
3. Open 2ndinit
4. Click Install
5. Click OK when the dialog comes up
6. Install Android Terminal Emulator from the Market
7. Open Android Terminal Emulator
8. type ls /sys/kernel/debug<enter>
This is only for Froyo. We know it breaks in it's current form with Gingerbread.

2nd-init Droid X2 apk
This method starts 2nd-init via mount_ext3.sh.
Warning! This conflicts with Tenfar's ClockWorkMod(aka CWM) Recovery
If the phone is wall charging, you shut down the phone, and start it, it will boot CWM
To avoid this, open System Recovery and hit Charge Mode.
It may also conflict with other recovery tools, or other things that tweak the normal boot process.
Checking for successful installation:
If the Output is good, then Congradulations you have control over init now!
