    Alright guys I was running FlyX and decided today that I would flash the new tranquility. After I flashed tranquility I lost root access. I've tried the D2 route to regain root, but I didn't have any luck.

    I'd like some one who knows what they are doing to check my math for me so to speak. The following steps are what I plan to do to restore my root.

    Flash back to 2.1 using RSD
    Reroot
    Install bootstrap and ROM Manager
    Download 2.2 from ROM Manager.
    Flash 2.3.
    Retheme.

    Please let me know if I am forgetting any steps. Thanks AF members!

    Did you happen to make a backup? If so you could always go back to that and save yourself a lot of trouble.

    Yes I made a backup but how would I get to it? I can't get to clockwork. I can only get to normal recovery.

    That's my main issue here.

    EDIT: Are you asking if I made a 2.1 backup? Or 2.2? Sorry for the n00b questions.

    What issue did you have with the ed method? Fixing that would be easiest

    Why aren't you in PC mode?

    I just did the Droid2 root on my X yesterday after losing root.

    Glad you got it worked out for him. What guide does everyone use for the d2 method? The ones that use cp commands have more steps than needed.

    I have never done it but I usually just pull up the same one the person I am helping is using. The one from XDA is the only one of know of though
