    [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)

    Just download, allow unknown sources, install, open, select top root method (Gimli), reboot phone, done

    no pc needed.

    for current links and detailed instructions

    two Options
    D2G "ezSBF" & Root CD
    Multi-device root cd


    What is ezSBF?
    Original D2G [TOOL] ezSBF D2G (not for 2.3.4/4.5.629)

    bhigham/bhigham/beh modified root method based on New root method for stock 2.3.4 (621/622) found (Droid2, R2D2)

    How this works



    burn to cd with imgburn, or flash drive use UNetBootin for Windows

    if you have a Mac
    try How to burn an .iso on mac
    and Boot your Mac from CD, DVD, external drive, or USB flash drive

    well we can do this step by step
    I don't have kernel memorized, system version is 4.5.629, correct
    first download D2G_4.5.629_SBF-and-RootCD.iso

    edit:OK, kernel looks like D2G
    download iso,
    verify that it downloaded correctly with md5 check sum
    How to verify the file was downloaded correct with
    MD5/SHA-1 Hash Checksums


    iso file is 219mb, but when placed on cd or usb drive, it is about 1/2 gb/ 500mb
    and you need a pc or mac with atleast 1gb of memory

    let me know when you get this far
