How to Root the Verizon Droid 2

August 26, 2010, By Atul Roach

Well here it is folks, we now have it confirmed that the Verizon Wireless locked Droid 2 has been officially compromised and the gang to do it, as always, is xda-developers. Now before you start getting all the more excited, be sure to know that the hackers warn you that rooting the device will be all at your risk.

This implies that although the Droid 2 has been hacked to do a lot of other things you otherwise can’t do, there is a stern ‘hidden’ warning that your smartphone may also end up as a dead box in a single second. Honestly speaking, we believe the ‘Root’ lovers have always been aware of these risks and and they are seldom baffled with such warnings.

Regarding the process, we will advise you to follow the forum thread over xda-developers, however, we can brief you about the pre-requisites. To begin with, you will need to tether your smartphone to a PC and
the next step will be to transfer some binaries.

Update: What we are also hearing is that the Droid 2 Root also works on the Android Froyo laden Motorola Droid X.
