Hello all, I am new here and for the past few days I have done a TON of reading on this site and many more. I have some PC skills but I am a bit overwhelmed by what I need, how to and the steps needed to root my phone. I have read a bunch of tuts on here and pages and pages but I think I overloaded my brain lol.
I have tried following a lot of them but I keep ending up into a wall.
Moto Droid X
Android Version 2.2.1
Syetem Version 2.3.340.MB810.Verizon.en.US
Baseband Version BP_C01.09.07P
-What I am trying to do-
Become root without using z4root.
Then taking the phone to Gingerbread 4.5.596 so I can put the Liberty v0.7 on. I have tried following the guide and for the most part it seems easy enough. I have the 2 files needed to move to GB 4.5.596 and I have the Liberty v0.7. What I keep running into is the rooting. I have tried a guide using the cmd prompt with the adb and sdk files. The device manager see's the MOT adb stuff and the drivers are there but nothing works in the cmd prompt. Sorry it looks like I am asking someone to figure all this out for me but I'm not. Just asking to be pointed in the right direction. There are a lot of things I seem to be getting confused with lol. One is I went to the market and bought the BootStrap2 and Titanium BackUp Pro. But from what I read I jumped the gun because you MUST be root to use them. So now how would I get them onto my SDcard? Any way TY for any help you may give me to understanding and getting this task done. I have already learned a lot that I didn't know before I joined this forum.
I think once I get this figured out I am going to make a NOOB friendly step by step covering all things from step 1-xxx to a finished task. If there is one here I have looked but maybe I overlooked because I have not found it yet. Thank you again for any help.
