I just obtained a Droid X2 running 2.3.5; I'd like to root it using my Ubuntu laptop.

I obtained the Droid2_D2G_DX_DX2-RootCD-2012.iso and extracted the files so as to walk through the shell script to observe what happens.

I was able to complete the first 4 commands, but on trying "$ADB reboot-bootloader", it initiates the process on the phone but never is able to re-establish the connection. "./moto-fastboot" just keeps "waiting for device".

For what it's worth, if I attempt to start fastboot via volume-down+power, it indicates that fastboot protocol is starting, but no connection to PC is made.

from "[iso]/home/tux/.SBF/rootdx2.sh":

$ADB kill-server
$ADB wait-for-device
$ADB shell rm /data/preinstall_md5/magic.md5
$ADB shell ln -s /data/local.prop /data/preinstall_md5/magic.md5

above commands worked; below did not

$ADB reboot-bootloader
...
...

I'll be glad for any information that might be helpful.

Danny

if you are still trying to root, i would burn the iso to a cd of usb drive, and boot from that
or use the manual method instructions
have not used adb or motofastboot on linux so limited to how much help i can give

[ROOT] Framaroot, a one-click .apk to root
I have verified it works with these Motorola devices running android 2.3.4
Droid 2 (a955), Droid 2 Global (a956), R2D2 (a957), & Droid X (MB810)

this is probably a stupid question but after you root the phone how do you uninstall programs because all it gives me is the option to uninstall the updates?

safest is use titanium back, or manually with a file manager or root browser with root access
