    DX ezSBF & Root 4.5.621 with magic md5 (does not require Milestone SBF)

    updated many times see change log


    new easier root for DX, D2, & D2G

    [ROOT] Framaroot, a one-click application to root (2.14 MB)and it's an apk!




    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    root created by phifc, original ezSBF by 1kds, and modified by bhigham


    DX ezSBF 2.3.4/4.5.621

    1. download an .iso file
    (Droid_X_621-SBF-and-RootCD-2nd_edition.iso)
    2. How to use the .iso file
    (burn to CD or USB flash drive)
    3. verify files on CD/USB are correct
    4. reboot pc from boot cd or usb
    5. follow onscreen instructions





    option 1. Flash MB810 2.3.4 SBF
    is only needed, to restore factory image when phone is not working correctly, not needed to just to root


    Download

    ezSBF and root cd
    Droid_X_621-SBF-and-RootCD-2nd_edition.iso 225.00 MB

    How to verify the file was downloaded correct with

    what is ezSBF?

    This is an .iso file. It is a complete Linux operating system that you will download, burn to CD (or USB) then boot your pc from CD or USB, this allows your pc to reboot into a different operating system.

    Shut computer down
    Hold c key, push power and hold c until you see the Linux OS start
    Hit enter at the yellow "boot baby... boot" screen
    You will see yellow dots for 3-5 minutes then the script will start


    Instructions (Windows):
    Download .iso
    Burn iso image to a disk (Instructions, win 7) - Vista and XP)
    Reboot PC
    Hit F12 (sometimes F8 or esc) during boot to go to boot menu (possibly google search how to boot your specific pc from CDROM)
    Select boot from CDROM (or USB if you used a flash drive)
    Hit enter at the yellow "boot baby... boot" screen
    You will see yellow dots for 3-5 minutes then the script will start


    Live USB Instructions (Windows):
    (Instructions from pendrivelinux.com)(thanks)
    Download
    UNetBootin for Windows
    Download your favorite Linux ISO
    Double click the Unetbootin Executable to start the program
    (1) Click the Diskimage radio box
    (2) browse to select your ISO
    (3) Set your target USB drive
    (4) click OK to start the creation





    (5) After the USB drive is done select reboot.
    (6) During boot enter the boot menu and change USB to boot first, save and reboot.
    (7) When booting from UNetbootin select SliTaz
    if cd/usb flash drive is made correctly you will not have Droid_X_621-ezSBF-and-RootCD.iso or Droid2_D2G_DX_DX2-RootCD-2012.iso on cd
    you will have a folder named 'Boot'
    with two files and a folder in the boot folder

    usb flash drive may have a few more files

    Hit enter at the yellow "boot baby... boot" screen

    You will see yellow dots for 1-3 minutes then the script will start

    ezSBF and root
    2.3.4 ezSBF & root for DX.PNG

    basically read onscreen directions

    don't use numbers on right side of your keyboard, just use the ones above qwerty


    select flash sbf
    follow onscreen directions


    don't want to reboot pc try
    Using Oracle VM VirtualBox, and Magic MD5 root iso

    Reboot PC
    Hit F12 (sometimes F8 or esc) during boot to go to boot menu
    Select drive image is on
    wait for yellow "boot baby... boot" screen
    You will see yellow dots for 3-5 minutes then the script will start

    select DX
    don't use numbers on right side of you keyboard, just use the ones above qwerty

    turn phone on, connect to pc with usb cable

    check usb debugging (settings/apps/development)
    select charge only usb mode

    press continue
    adb will push
    Code:
    data/local.prop /data/preinstall_md5/magic.md5
    reboot phone to bootloader
    flash repacked sbf (less than 50mb)
    reboot twice, very important (reboot just replaces the local.prop, but the old local.prop is still in memory, till second reboot)
    adb pushes su,superuser, and busybox
    reboot to recovery, wipe cache
    reboot normally
    rooted

    flash sbf n root n shutdown.i
    what image are you using, this one does not have a sbf option
    don't use the d2 2.3.4/4.5.621 sbf
    what is the name of the iso file you burned?

    edit: you want Droid2_D2G_DX_DX2-RootCD-2012.iso

    Do you have to download the ImgBurn, or can you just use the built in Windows burner?

    My droid X doesn't have a USB connection notification allowing me to select charge only mode. Is there a driver I need to install to my PC?

    You need the Motorola drivers. I can't grab a link right now but they can be found on Motorola's website.
