Droid 2 Rooted!

That’s right, just weeks after it;s release, the Motorola Droid 2 has been rooted! The geniuses over at XDA Developers have done it again with this latest hack. At first glance, the process looks fairly simple, but it’s not one click root, that’s for sure. So, if you’re unsure about rooting, I would wait until an easier method is released. This one isn’t for the faint of heart, so be cautious.

As of now, there have been no ROM releases or recovery images, but we’ll keep you posted on any new developments.

A special thanks goes out to our own Bruce Wilke for this tip!

    I’m interested to see some of the easier methods to come out in the future to root the Droid 2. I just had my original Droid replaced with the Droid 2 because of problems with the mini-USB charger port getting too loose to take a charge (well, that and the fact that keys were peeling off the keyboard).

    While I like my new Droid 2 quite a bit, I am beside myself at the bloatware installed on the device that I cannot uninstall. At least back in the good ol’ days of bloatware installed on a new computer I would buy, I could get rid of all the nonsense without much difficulty. This new development with my Droid 2 is just flat out insulting – it’s my device so how about I decide what I will have running on it?

    Amazing to think I have to go to the point of root access (not a big deal for some people, obviously, but I would rather not have to take the step if I am not interested) to remedy this.
