    I love mine. No problems at all. Everything runs faster. Wifi tethering and root only apps works just fine.

    I did remove the ATK though. It runs WAY smooth without it.

    Yeah same here I was rooted with the Easy root PC app, followed instructions on moving the su to the other folder. Renamed all the bloatware back, upgraded, then got rid of bloatware again. Left all my root only programs and them and everything else is working fine.

    I had the same issue at first, but at some point the issue cleared itself up and I now have full root.. I may have rebooted the phone, but other than that I didn't do anything out of the ordinary..

    First post here thought I'd share my experience today with this.

    PLayed a few times with the froyo unofficial update on the X.

    First round got that logwrapper bs. Fixed, sbf'd back to 2.1, rooted. Then Froyo'd

    NOTICED my rooting failed. Messed it up I guess.

    Cleaned cache, wiped data, SBF'd then Froyo'd No root, just wanted to see it for what it was.

    Got bored, cleared cache, wiped data, SBF'd, THEN ROOTED then Froyo'd
    Then Lost root pretty sure I did it right as I ran my root apps. Then they stopped functioning.

    Tried to rename using root explorer and would;nt R/O anymore.

    All I did was do a reset using quickboot (which needs root) asked for permission and it was a go.

    Came back with root. SO reset maybe? But seriously like sbf'd 3-4 times today. 2.1->2.2->2.1->2.2->....... blah not messing with it anymore. It works, I'll try to help if I can but sbf is needed for sure.

    If you still have a working busybox, this might track down where you put su:

    busybox find /system -perm -2000 -print

    If it spits out something like /system/xbin/su or /system/xbin/suwhoopsitypoed, then type that entire command in (including the full path) and you should get root privs.

    If you didn't copy su, then after the update su is clobbered and set non-suid, so you'll have lost root.

    I believe the only way out of that is to SBF back to 2.1 (see "Unbricking your DroidX" thread), rooting, and then re-upgrading following the instructions carefully.

    Thanks. i didnt copy the file before the update so I guess that I will have to SBF back to 2.1 and do it right, unless someone comes up with a way to root 2.2 before i get around to it...

    thanks,
