SuperOneClick Still Roots DROID 2, Even on Version 2.3.20

We told you about SuperOneClick a couple of weeks ago as a great source for easy rooting if you are incapable of installing the Android SDK and running a couple of adb commands. (Cheap shot!)  The app has evolved a lot since then, is now on version 1.3.5, and even roots the Droid 2 running the latest 2.3.20 update.  I just ran it myself, used some root-only apps, rebooted the phone a couple of times and still have access.  Enjoy!  

*This should also work on the Droid X.

Download:  SuperOneClock1.3.5.zip

Instructions:

*There is always some risk involved when rooting your device.  You assume all risk.

1.  Download the file from above and extract into a folder on your computer.
2.  Plug your phone into your computer via USB and turn on USB Debugging.
3.  Open the folder with the SuperOneClick files and find SuperOneClick.exe and open it.
4.  Allow the process to run and when it finishes, you will be rooted.
5.  Now click the donate button in the app to support the dev.

    My Dell Streak is use Android 2.2 with :
    Baseband : GAUSB1A131800-EU
    Kernel : 2.6.32.9-perf
    Build : 12821
    is success to ROOT !!!!
    i got the way to root in here : http://forum.pocketables.net/showthread.ph…9182&page=2
    with this step :
    This is what worked for me. On Dell’s 318 Build. I put debugging on, turned off my Streak:
    1. Get a copy of Super One Click 1.7.0
    2. Turn off Phone
    3. Start Super One Click BY RIGHT CLICKING ON THE PROGRAM AND SELECTING “RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR”
    4. When the program starts, check rageagainstthecage exploit
    5. Click Run in Super One Click (do NOT turn the phone on yet)
    6. When Super One Click says “waiting for device”, plug in phone and turn it on
    7. Wait for a while while the phone boots up. Tons of messages will go by. Sometimes it looks like it is hanging. It is not
    8. Finished! You should be nice and rooted.
    After 3 days finally i finished “How to root my Dell Streak Android 2.2 build 12821″
    Hopely this can be help the other whom not yet success to root Dell Streak.

  • Gcstrike13

    i have a droid r2d2, if i root, will i be able to unroot if i wanted to and still have the r2d2 boot animation and software?

  • Gatehouse Academy review

    If you are incapable of installing the Android SDK and running a couple of adb commands then this a very good option .go for it- SuperOneClick.Thanks for the instructions for downloading it…

  • http://www.theandysan.com/j-hass-group-debt-settlement J Hass Group

    Just a question about one click root. Since they have the on click on the computer how soon do you guys see a true on click on the market like we had with the D1!!

  • drinksprite

    for droid 2 users, whenever it gets stuck on “waiting for device”, just disable usb debugging on your phone, then turn it back on if it’s still not doing anything. I had to do this like 4 times and it worked.

  • http://petcarerxcomplaintsresolution.com/ PetCareRx Reviews

    Well their is Droid2 after rooting with this? I keep getting an error saying I don’t have SuperUser installed and it stops.Thanks

  • http://odyssey-tours.com/ Rome Vatican tours

    I was root with my D1 but he fell in the toilet and now im the proud new onwer of a D2 and im kinda hesitant on rooting him I would feel better with a proven 1 click like we had on the D1.

  • Jimmyk413

    I does not work for my Droid2. I have tried several times.
    It just doesn’t work.

  • http://www.infinitipartsonline.com/ Infiniti EX35 parts

  • C Rillo

    Help!! I just tried installing gingerbread keyboard on my rooted droid 2. It kept force quitting after install so I installed a backup, but it will not boot and I am stuck on the motorola screen, and I cant boot into recovery…only the bootloader :-/ any ideas?

  • http://www.facebook.com/ecubuntu Alex Fernando

    this oneclick not work with android 2.3.20 on Droid 2

    • Airos4

      Just did it with that version and that hardware, and it worked without any errors or hangs.

  • Vyruzx

    i updated and it still says superuser is there but i cant use any rooted apps. Can i just run this and it will fix the problem or do i need to do something elso first?

    • Chydukovich

      I have the same problem

      • Cburgcitizen

        Yes, same here… need some input on this topic. I still have the superuser app present after the update, but my root-only apps wont run. Do I need to uninstall the superuser app (I'm afraid to even open it since it shouldnt be there in an unrooted phone right?) or can I just download and run this app and run it to gain root access again? anyone done this?

  • Lance West

    I am unable to complete the process…it never finishes…any suggestions…please. Thanks

  • PFebo90

    can you root a mytouch slide with this?

  • erocetc

    Anyone try unrooting their Droid2 after rooting with this? I keep getting an error saying I don't have SuperUser installed and it stops. I even did the root process again (and it was successful), then tried to unroot and it gave me the same error.

  • Kistheone119

    • Robotsandwrestlers

      Wow I had the same thing happen to my D1 and am also hesitant. D2 has great speed and battery life running stock.

    • Ryan C

    • Bj_plascencia104

  • http://www.facebook.com/plattrob Rob Platt

    I assume upgrading will overwrite the bootstrapper too. So upgrade, reroot, reinstall bootstrapper?

  • jtwildman1

    Used it to root my Droid 2.2 Frg22d couldn't have been easier.
    Root
    DL rom manager from the market
    DL titanium backup from market
    I got the paid version of Rom manager so I could Dl Roms straight to my phone .
    Enjoy

    Poor little Droid 2 still having rooting issues. :-(

    • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

      what are u talking about?

  • Bj_plascencia104

    I did this and the process is stuck on installing superuser.apk..how do you know when its done?

  • Jeyrivera89

    So I have a bad habit of going off topic.

    Rehab another day then…

    I can't for the life of me figure out how to change the color/style of the status bar… No where online is reliable…

    any ideas?

    Kthnx :)

    rooted dx

    • skaguyy

      get rom manager…should be something in there you can use

    • http://perpetualn00b.tumblr.com quiklives

      You have to load a custom theme that has a different status bar, you can't just go into settings somewhere.

      • Jeyrivera89

        I figured that. On the dx forums there was a way to do it manually but unfortunately it 'bricked' me.

        Thank the DroidGods for having the new 2.2 sbf out :)

        any suggestions to which roms would be good? besides rom manager?

  • J Dub

    I was never able to get SuperOneClick to work with a co-workers D2. I did however get Easy123Root or whatever it is to work great. I wonder if this will be the same. I am a D1 guy so I don't want to mess up a friends D2 with its locked downess.

  • Me

    Yeah 1.5.3 you transposed the numbers there.

  • thelolotov

    Crap, I upgraded without even thinking about it, I lost my root, good thing I found this.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

    Kellex, you do know they are on version 1.5.3 now right?

  • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

    Worked like a frickin charm on my DROID2!!!

  • 11knives

    Where is the “one click” root app for DX? Did Easy Root give up on updating for 2.2?

  • kimir

    is it any different from actually rooting? (features-wise)

  • Albokay

    Had problems with dx. Never got to root after 2.2

    Easy root I miss you!

  • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/WLJ7ZQQXMDVQ3RNYF3VW65HJ5M Jason

    I didn't have luck with this on the Motorola Milestone. I had really high hopes for this one

    However Easy Root had no problems rooting my phone

  • Doolidg

    will this work on D1 too? I've been rooted for quite a while but I can't get my kid to root his…he says if the one click rooting comes back he will probably root..is it time for him to root?

    • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

      yes

  • Pcraig87
