    Droid 2 <There is this, which is essentially the same. I had to run through the root process 3 or 4 times before it was successful. Maybe if you state exactly what went wrong someone could help you a little more.

    So you have a superuser app in your app drawer? My issue was it kept saying this exploit failed would you like to try again?
