    So the problem is that I have a droid 3 and at one point it was rooted.

    I upgraded to 2.3.4 and when it came back up I still had the SU icon but it wasn't legit.

    I ran the SU checker and of course it wasn't rooted anymore.

    getting to the question....

    Is it possible to root this phone again or to at least force a downgrade that would allow me to regain root access?

    I don't have any backups other than the phones factory reset, and that factory reset is now 2.3.4. Which I guess still has something from the rooting that won't allow the SU software through the second stages .

    I get an "access denied" error on second phase.

    Please help.

    Firstly, we never had 2.3.3, we always had 2.3.4, but recently went from system version 5.6.890 to 5.7.906. Search for the "Motofail" root method. It works on 5.7.906.
