So I finally rooted with the dorootforwindows.zip method which worked fine, BUT I immediately went to backup with bootstrapper and when selected 'bootstrap recovery' instead of bringing up the superuser access, etc I got this error message:
Error Running exec().
Command: [su, -c, ./data/data/
Working Directory: null
Needless to say I didn't know where to go from there. I did download droidbootstrap from a link off a guide to backing up your droid (My Brain Hurts: Droid X Recovery (and Droid 2 too!)), and now just saw it available on market. Could my original version be corrupted? I'm unsure if maybe I skipped a step! Brand new DX running Froyo 2.3.340 or so it says.
