    I assume u know the method by heart now. But try one last thing. BEFORE you choose RECOVERY try the SIMLOCK option it will initiate and say SD FAT32 init ok. Reboot!! As the phone reboots hold vol down and power go to recovery and see if this works. I failed every method but tried this and it worked.

    Why in the hell would you get rid of the phone if you can't root it? What if the root process on the Droid 2 is a PITA? Damn this phone, I'm selling to get a... I hear the Droid is easy to do.:D PM me if you want some help. I tried a real hybrid method and got root TWICE.

    It's frustrating sometimes for sure. Stick with it though if you can. I know you said you tried everything so you may already know all of these but a few things that seemed to make the final difference for some people have been:

    -Enter airplane mode beforehand
    -Reformat sd card to FAT32 using computer, not phone
    -Use and install (per included instructs) the driver that comes with the Clockwork Mod tool (aka Reflash/Recovery Tool)
    -Wait for the Windows "device recognized" sound to push card back in if you're using that method to start with
    -I got mine by having my card out and directly after hitting the power button, I disconnected my usb cable, plugged back in immediately and then pushed in the card all in about 2 seconds time. Nothing else worked for me but that got it.

    It's definitely an experiment in patience. :D

    I got root on my 9th tries. Using a old 1gb Nokia card.

    Any way, no root = sell the phone. What happen if you can't no longer root any phone?
