Sebastian Krahmer over xda-devs managed to root the phone and has posted an image showing an application called Superuser Permissions on Droid 2, which is only possible on rooted devices.

Disclaimer : Proceed at your own risk. We are not responsible for anything you do to your phone!

The instructions are given below.

Setup:
Install adb and Motorola drivers for windows(32-bit or 64-bit)
– Download attached archive
– Extract to a directory, I used c:\Droid2Root
– Make sure you have USB degugging enabled
– Change connection to PC Mode

Process:
– Open command prompt
– cd c:/wherever-your-sdk-tools-folder-is
– adb devices (to verify the connection)
– cd c:/Droid2Root
– adb push Superuser.apk /sdcard/Superuser.apk
– adb push su /sdcard/su
– adb push busybox /sdcard/busybox
– adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
– adb shell
– cd data/local/tmp
– chmod 0755 rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin

– ./rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
– let the process run until it ‘kicks’ you out (may take a minute or two)
– cd c:/wherever-your-sdk-tools-folder-is
– adb devices (to verify the connection)
– adb shell (you should now have a # prompt, if not return to ./rage step above)

– mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
– cp /sdcard/Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk
– cp /sdcard/su /system/bin/su
– cp /sdcard/busybox /system/bin/busybox
– chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
– chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox
– mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
– exit
– exit
