Verizon’s Droid 2 Rooting Guide
The Motorola Droid 2 is the successor to the highly popular and successful, the original Droid. The handset was more of a evolutionary update to its predecessor, than a revolutionary one. The Droid 2 also sports a much more usable keyboard than the OG. The Droid 2 is known as the Milestone 2 outside the United States.
Warning – This method will only work for Droid 2 running Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Here are the steps to get root access on your Motorola handset in a very simple way-:
