How to: Root the DROID2, DROIDX2, DROIDX, and DROID3 Running Gingerbread


Actually, this method should root just about any Motorola phone running Gingerbread.  So not only will it work on the DROID3, DROID2, DROIDX2, and DROIDX, but it should also work on the DROID Pro and D2 Global when they receive an update – hopefully the DROID Bionic too.  We were inspired to write this for the simple fact that the D2 received Gingerbread last night finally, and within 5 minutes I was rooted.

Thanks to Framework43 and psouza4 for putting this together.  It couldn’t be any simpler than this method right here.  

Download:  MotorolaOneClickRoot.zip


1.  Make sure you have Motorola drivers installed – [Download Drivers] 2.  Download the MotorolaOneClickRoot.zip file from above and unzip it to your Windows PC.
3.  On your phone go into  Settings>Applications>Development and check the box for USB Debugging.
4.  Plug phone into your computer and select “Charge Only” mode.
5.  Navigate to MotorolaOneClickRoot folder and run MotorolaOneClickRoot.exe.
6.  Follow the instructions in the command window.
7.  Your phone will complete 3 steps, rebooting along the way.  When it finishes, you will be rooted.

Full support can be found at this thread in case you run into issues.

    tried to root my droid x 4 times it says it was successfully rooted and everytime i check for the root it says it wasnt rooted what am i doing wrong?

  • Kio

    Does not work for Droix X Gingerbread 2.3.4. It “seems” to work (everything successfull and all reboots) but afterall it doesn’t root the phone.

  • Tyler

    didn’t work on my droid x, tried it twice.

  • rob

    dident work on my droid x


    Didn’t Work on stock Droid X 2.3.4 Sep 13, 2012. Trying to figure out doroot.bet thing now.

  • I tried this oneclick on my D2 w/ 2.3.4 ver4.5.621.A955…everything goes thru the 3 steps fine. Says I have rooted phone, yet does not install SU, any ideas as to why? seems I am doing everything correct, assuming this works on my vers phone. I am not technically challenged 🙂 I just never rooted before, thought i would have a bit of a go while waiting on my new phone to arrive 🙂

  • dwinkle

    Ran fine, but had no effect on my Droid2.

    How Long Does This Take ?

  • Josh

    Ight well, i’m in August of 2012, would this still even work for me? I have Android ver. 2.3.4 for the DROID X but uh.. mad scared to try this.

  • lewone

    Why would anyone root with anthing other than Zergroot? I mean it is the fastest and most idiot proof method. O mean I just don’t understand running any that have possible problems.

    For some reason my droid x2 is not able to download the needed driver mentioned above. It tells me that the content is not suported on my phone. Any help would truley be appreciated since this problem is stalling me from rooting my x2, thanks Sterling

  • Michael

    Nope.  It started to look easy but got to Step 3 and just stayed there.  After an hour I unplugged the USB and then the message came up saying I was rooted.  But, I’m not.

  • droidx2_user

    How do you unroot the droid x2 after rooting it using this procedure? My phone has become so much slower and I am afraid that it is going to break.  PLease help! I can’t afford for my phone to break!

  • This worked for my Droid2 running gingerbread.  It was a little weird, though.  When I ran MotorolaOneClickRoot.exe, it went through the first steps OK but when it came to “Rebooting your phone”, it didn’t reboot.  I had to pull the battery and the USB cable to force it to reboot, which is scarily similar to a hard reset of the device.  After I did that the first time, the program said it had completed the first reboot and was now rebooting again, so I knew I was on the right track.  I proceeded the same way for all three reboots.  Root Check Basic confirms I have root access, as does Got Root?  Titanium Backup Root installed and ran a full backup, so all is well.  Phew.

  • Jvette

    Does this work on Droid X running 2.3.4

  • Jason Kent

    I have a droid 2 version 2.3.3 and its not working.  I put on charge only, USB debugging, and each of the files have correctly downloaded.  It just gets stuck at Step 1 of 3 (Rebooting your phone . . .) and nothing else happens.  Just waiting and waiting.  It sits there FOREVER until eventually my phone dies and it says the battery is to low to continue.  Any advice?

  • amp

    I have the Droid 2 Global and am running 2.3.3 I did everything in this description and in the program and am pretty sure I did it all right.  The program said it was done and my phone should be rooted, but when I went to titanium backup it said it is not rooted. I went to busybox to see if I need to install that and it said no root access. Can anyone help me?

    • Ozhart2

      I also ahve the Droid2 Global,2.3.3 and it worked great with mine using Win 7 Utimate 32 bit.

  • Cocojo69

    Worked perfectly on my Droid X2 so happy!! I was looking around at a couple Droid forums and you got these hardcore programmers writing in Chinese on how to root your phone by making the thermal nuclear ions of the central data manipulator congruent to the vertices of the matrix. This was incredibly simple and took no more than 5 minutes. A++++

    yeah so i went through all the steps and such, no problem. Well nothing happened after it rebooted, the phone seemed the same as usual. So I rebooted it again but now it is just stuck on the red and white Motorola symbol.

    Just finished it. perfectly flawless on my droid x.  I made sure i had the completely up to date drivers.  Im not sure if they drivers are on this page.  i checked a few ( rootwiki) if im not mistaken, but i used this “one click app”  very well written. an i was to chicken to do it a few months ago.  i think im going to be very happy.

  • Kogrady

    Complete noob, as far as all this goes.  my droid is rooted.  no idea where i want to go and do now haha.   so as far as the hard part, im hoping ive gotten it all done and out of the way.  SSOOO now what do i do now that my phone is rooted? suggestions?  i have titanium backup pro already installed, as well as some great stuff by a developer called 3c. (battery, and phone manager)


  • Pyle2 0

    Should i download any apps or take any other precautions, “pre-” root?   anything i have to do before i root my phone to insure i can make it factory again, or that would make it easier once it is rooted?

    Thank you so hard. Finally got my Droid X re-rooted just in time for me to backup my apps and get my Galaxy Nexus tomorrow.

  • Glitcher

    Sweet, thanks guys, it helped a lot, and for users not knowing how to do this, if it goes to the black screen and is stuck there with the white letters, just unplug the phone when it says rebooting phone, turn it off, wait for the motorola logo, plug it back in, it should turn it back on and run step two and when it starts to reboot again wait for the same screen with the white letters, unplug again and manually reboot and it should have added the superuser app in your application list 🙂

    Heyy, to anyone having issues downloading the appropriate drivers from the provided “[Download Drivers]” link above, use the link i have provided below.

  • Wilbert917

  • Anonymous

    Thank you! Gingerbreak did not work on my Droid 2 Global. Why does Facebook need to start when my phone does? Why does eBay need to run when my phone turns on? Why does Google Shopper, Square, Pandora, and all the rest need to auto-start? Why do all these apps think they are the most important app in the world and slow me down? Not only that, but they autorun when network changes, so going through the subway, where the signal cuts in & out 100 times makes them churn violently and drain your battery! I use Gemini App Manager to turn off autorun for nearly every app, and fix the Bluetooth button to assign it to only one app at a time.

  • If it didnt work for you its because you need the drivers and “kellex” only posted the drivers for 64bit windows. Genius. Here are the 32bit drivers installation.

    Uhhh… so I just pretty much ran head first without thinking and followed the steps above and rooted my phone… Now what? I’ve did quick research and all I hear is Bootstrap and ROMs. It might as well be in a different language because I have no idea what they’re talking about.
    Can someone direct me towards some links and help me by telling me what I need to do to get wireless tethering and how to change the digital cosmetics or themes of my droid?

    Hello everyone that owns a Droid 2…  I spent countless hours trying to root
    my Droid 2 (not Droid 2 Global)…  The crap on this page didn’t work… 
    However, I can now happily say that version 2.2 of SuperOneClick worked…  If
    you want to try it on your Droid 2, set your browser to




    Scroll down to SuperOneClick v2.2 


    Click on the “Click here to download SuperOneClick v2.2


    Save the file…  Extract…


    Plug in your phone to USB port…  Put phone’s USB into PC Mode


    Run SuperOneClick (from your extracted directory)…


    Click on Root button…


    Wait 3-4 minutes…  Phone was ROOTED!!


    (I tried the crap on this website at least 5 times before finding
    SuperOneClick…  I even tried to debug the MS-DOS batch file to no


    Good luck!!


    • Synquest

      SuperOneClick hangs on a WIN 7 system and an XP system. Droid X is unaffected.

    • Dynamowow

      Yesss! thanks Nh_golfer I too have the original droid 2 updated to 2.3.3 and this was the only one that worked

  • Andrewsteel366

    Doesnt work on milestone x2 running 2.3.5


    I don’t know wtf I’m doing wrong, but it absolutely will not recognize my phone (Droid X). I tried this one, as well as Pete’sOneClickRoot. Absolutely infuriating for a phone that has been infuriating me for far too long as it is.

  • Outsidemedic

    worked great for my Droid 2. Thanks! Just make sure that if you are running it and have the updated 2.3.3 that you put the phone in charge only mode. That made all the difference for me and disable any antivirus on your phone too.

Am I actually getting a free mobile hotspot, or am I just incurring charges I don’t know about. (Verizon scares me)

  • Jpikuritz

    Says im missing the adb file?

  • Fritters

    Didn’t work for me.  Told me I was rooted, but root required apps and Root Check tell me I’m not.  Stumped.  I had been rooted before 2.3.4 with z4root.  Worked fine.  the upgrade broke that.  Restored to default.  Saw that SU was still on the system (which didn’t make sense to me).  Tried this method 3-4 times.  No joy.  Trying to remove SU completely.  Root explorer works (somehow) so used that to delete the SU.apk.  Then tried to uninstall the program.  Have been unsuccessful even using Android System Info app.  It Returns “unsuccessful”.
    I’m stumped.  Not sure if the remnant of SU is screwing up the root.  Strange that Root Explorer (which I believe requires root access) works.  But Quick Boot, Titanium, Juice Defender don’t.  HELP!

  • Zeroxsolace

    im getting stuck at step 1 when i run the file.. says its rebooting but my phone turns off turns back on then at the top left it reads bootloader do.11 and about mid screen on the same side it reads that my battery is ok, ok to program, trasnfer mode: usb

    • finally

      Zeroxsolace: I had to unplug the cable and power off then power back on (for all three steps).

    help, does not work on motorola droid2 2.3.2

  • Anonymous

    Man, that could NOT have been any easier.

    For those complaining that it doesn’t work on 2.2, maybe you need a refresher on the names?  

    2.2 = FROYO

    If you want to root 2.2, get z4Root from Amazon App Store.

    I thank you all for helping me to re-root my droidx after the upgrade.  My problem now is it won’ allow me to tether because the verizon mobile hotspot is activated.  Can someone help me?

  • droidx on verizon

    My Droid X got and OTA update 2.3.3 and tried this process to root it. It went through and says it is rooted but the apps do not run and the superuser is still the old one that used to be there. What else can be done?

  • Nice ! 
    Thanks guys !
    Worked 101 % on my Droid X.

  • Mailforjoel

    Worked Great on my DroidX.  Ran just as expected, and then used Check Root to verify root.  Been using Root Uninstaller to get rid of the bloat…or freeze it actually.  Thanks to all those, who make this stuff so easy for us users!!!!

  • CBRXX03

    I have a simple newbie question. I would like to root my new (to me, but used) Gingerbread DX. The main reason is to remove all the Motorola and Verizon bloatware. If I root, does everything I do have and want on the phone then have to be reloaded?

  • Hey! It rooted my Motorola Droid 2, finally. None of the other “one click” methods worked. 😀

  • Sooo Happy!

    I had rooted and made my original droid amazing. Then someone stole it. My new Droid X has sucked but I am sooo happy that I can finally customize it. THANK YOU!

  • Billcommons

    This wont work for me. Is it because I am running Windows XP?

  • Run the file on this website, let it reboot your phone twice, run the do root.bat on the other website. You should be rooted now.

  • If anyone is having issues, I just discovered that if you run this root, it will install the super use program, it will not root your phone. If you use the root files presented on this website, which I have used to root my Droid 2, which I am using, please run the “doroot.bat” file and you will be able to root. I just tried it and I verified root access via the app, root checker.


    Keep calm and chive on

    • Flash Point

      Ran doroot.bat and bam! root access on Droid 2 running Gingrbread. Thank you!

    • This worked for me too, on both the DX and D2.  Ran MotorolaOneClickRoot.zip and then the doroot.bat and it worked

  • josh has a DROID X

    after the first attempt being unsuccessful (it stopped and didnt say that i was rooted in the command prompt), i attempted once more, and it said in the command prompt “congratulations you are now rooted” so i pressed a key to exit that, as it said it was done. after doing so i unplug my droid x from the computer and i go straight to trying out my wireless tether app (which worked just fine before i updated my droid x) and it says “unable to start tethering. is your device rooted?” so i am completely clueless once again as to what i do next. (the wireless tethering app is the only way i can play xbox live)

  • josh has a DROID X

    i had to update my droid x to the 2.3.3 gingerbread, and prior to doing so my phone was rooted. as upon rebooting after the update on the running system, i tried opening my wireless tether and starting it… and it said i wasn’t rooted. so i try z4 root about 5 times and every time has been unsuccessful. i come here and go through ALL the steps listed above and it still says it is not rooted, i have no clue what to do from here…. any help would be appreciated!

  • Scott Johnson

    This was BY FAR the easiest way to root my new 4.5.602.  Z4Root 1.3 did not work at all – just endlessly cycled or simply popped back into the desktop without having done anything.  Gingerbreak 1.2 was likewise useless.  MotorolaOneClickRoot seemed to finish in at most three minutes.  Don’t waste your time with anything else — ESPECIALLY not the sbf back to 2.3 procedures.   I’m sure they work but seem very complicated and easily mishandled.  This by contrast relly is one click.   Amazing and effective.

    I also tried the win7 one click (i’m runnin win7 64bit) and it says successful, but my root apps (specifically titanium backup) says they do not have root access.

      depending on which version of windows you are running you might have to download a different driver package.  The link on DL is for 64-bit, whereas if you go to the “full support” link it will give you the option for 64-bit or 32-bit.  Try 32-bit and that should solve your issue.

  • Man thats easy, I remember when I rooted my OG, the instructions alone took 5 minutes to read 🙂

    Could it finally be a non SBF way to get root on my X?!?  i hope this works, cause i really did not want to have to wipe my phone.

      I rooted my DX with this method the other week, it’s working great. Bloat-b-gon.

    YAY for ROOT!
    Bionic….not so much!

    • Topher

      almost yay for root of D2…
      it says in the command line that it works with the cliq, cliq 2, droid 2
      global, droid 3, droid pro, droid x, droid x2… but not droid 2. it
      also says in the top that its for gingerbread 2.3.4 and the version of
      gb i just downloaded on my droid 2 is 2.3.3.
      My question is… will this work with the D2?

      • Ozhart2

         I would like to know also. Is this method still thw to go?

        • DX Again

           I just purchased a stock GB DX. It has .605 ..  I was expecting issues because of the latest updates, but I was so awsomely surprised that it worked without a hich the first time… I thought it didn’t work until I pulled the battery and rebooted, now I have full root. Now to mod the radio…
