Ok, I've done a lot of research, so I will gather my information onto this thread, but I would like to make this a cakewalk for myself and anyone else of whom may be fairly new in the Android development scene. Basically, in this thread, I just need reassurance and guidance to prevent myself from getting confused. Thanks in advance. I will be using a number list to make it easy enough for a kindergartener to be able to root an x2.
This is coming from a stock 2.3.4 system.
1. Download Bootstrap Recovery from http://www.bandbinnovations.com/xda/...rap_signed.apk
2. Rename UPDATE.zip
3. Put UPDATE.zip into root folder of SD card
4. Turn phone off and hold down power while holding down the volume down button
5. Toggle down button until I see Android Recovery and then press volume up once
6. Press volume up and volume down button simultaneously on the next screen.
7. Wipe cache
8. Flash UPDATE.zip
9. Unplug phone
10. Download Zergrush from http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...1&d=1321435888
11. Unzip Zergrush
12. Enable USB debugging in Menu\Settings\Applications\Development
13. Enable Unknown Sources in Menu\Settings\Applications
14. Enable Stay Awake in Zergrush
15. Increase screen timeout to 10 minutes
16. Plug USB cable to phone and then to the PC
17. Set phone to charge only mode
18. Execute RUNME.bat
19. Hit spacebar
20. Install 2.3.5
21. Boot into Bootstrap Recovery
22. Wipe data, cache, and davlik
23. Flash Eclipse 2.0.2 http://www.multiupload.com/AFVKKQYQ7Z
or would I be better off going with Cyanogenmod7?
I've read countless amounts of threads and tutorials that I'm just getting more and more confused. Basically I need someone to really break it down for me step by step by step if possible. I know its probably aggravating when someone can't do a simple root but for the inexperienced, it's like trying to teach physics in Chinese when you only know how to speak English and don't even know a thing about physics.
