Droid X2 Gingerbread Root Guide

Quote:

"One Click" method now available, see MikeJ92YJ's post here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1234973

Thanks to drjbliss for finding the Motorola vulnerability that lead to this. Original work here: http://vulnfactory.org/blog/2011/08/...g-the-droid-3/

Follow this guide exactly, and you can root OTA Gingerbread on your Droid X2 That means no more SBF'ing Froyo just so you can root. I have put all the commands into a few simple scripts. Instead of doing everything manually, you can just follow this simple guide. This post assumes you have ADB installed and know how to use it, and that you have the Motorola USB drivers installed.

Step 1:

Quote:

METHOD A: Download the attached zip file with the root files, and extract the files somewhere memorable. Plug your phone into AC charger or computer. FOLLOW STEP 2.

OR

Quote:

METHOD B: Download the attached zip file with the root files, plug your phone into your computer, and put the phone in USB Mass Storage mode. Then extract the files to the internal storage device a.k.a. MOT. If you choose this method then you can SKIP STEP 2 AND GO TO STEP 3.

Step 2 (if you chose METHOD A):

Open Windows command terminal.

Type these commands:

extracted-location = place where you extracted files to, if you are in the same location as the files, then you can omit extracted-location/.

Code:
adb push extracted-location/motoroot-step1.sh /sdcard/
adb push extracted-location/motoroot-step2.sh /sdcard/
adb push extracted-location/motoroot-step3.sh /sdcard/
adb push extracted-location/su /sdcard/
adb push extracted-location/Superuser.apk /sdcard/
--

Step 3:

Type these commands:

Code:
adb shell
sh /sdcard/motoroot-step1.sh
Hard reboot your phone.

--

Step 4:

Type these commands:

Code:
adb shell
sh /sdcard/motoroot-step2.sh
Hard reboot your phone.

--

Step 5:

Type these commands:

Code:
adb shell
sh /sdcard/motoroot-step3.sh
Your phone will reboot itself.

--

Step 6:

Type these commands:

Code:
adb shell
su
Accept the Superuser prompt on your phone and allow access. Now any time you want to adb shell, you can type su afterwards and obtain root.

Congratulations, you are now rooted.

I tried using P3's new one-click root. It complete successfully, but Titanium is claiming it does not have root access. P3's one-click appears to be doing the same thing listed here. Anyone else?
