    rooting for dummies?

    Im new to the whole rooting and hacks for the DROID x.. I believe I have the 2.3.4 version (im not extremely tech savvy so be gentle).. but I was wanting to know the pros & cons for rooting? And maybe get an easy to understand, for dummies type explanation.

    Thanks in advance!

    Droid X, 2, 2G, X2, D3, D4
    pro: modify system files/settings, install custom roms, make complete backups

    con: remove wrong system files/setting and have to flash a sbf

    read and know how to boot to
    bootloader and android recovery

    will add links

    if you have dx system 2.3.4 / 4.5.621
    use magic md5 root for d2, d2g, dx, & dx2

    or the ezSBF for milestone x 604 and root with zergrush
