[HOW-TO] ROOT 2.3.5/1.3.418 magic md5 method
Posted 29 July 2013 - 05:04 PM #12
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.
$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
I'll be glad for any information that might be helpful.

Droid 2 (a955), Droid 2 Global (a956), R2D2 (a957), & Droid X (MB810)
