    Unhappy trying to root my 2.2 updated Droid X - refuses to work

    Please Please Help.. Been up for 8 hours straight trying to do this. I have done every step and it just wont work... i downloaded everything exactly. run the set up and it says phone is rooted. but when i go on my phone there is no superuser ninja and nothing showing my phone is rooted... i have no idea what i am doing wrong... do you think verizon or motorola put someing in the 2.2 update to deny the root? I been researching since the ota 2.2 came out on tuesday and still nothing. PLEASE help... im sick about this...

    to the forum TJ! You will need to revert back to stock 2.1 before rooting your droid X. Sholes X rsd lite video Good luck!

    You can't go back to 2.1 once you take the OTA upgrade. There is a method posted on Rootzwiki describing the process to root your phone, but that site was down late yesterday.

    Thats my only option. It said that this would work on the droid x 2.2 and the droid 2 phones.
    According to Wimervision, Sabashtian Krahmer, Howto Root Motorola Droid X and 2 running 2.2 Froyo Win7/Mac/Linux


    So this video is definilty false?

    Should i just wait for someone to fix this root or do i have to go to revert back to stock 2.1. This is so frustrating.. Was so excited to root my baby and got shot down

    Appreciate the help. Does anyone have any other suggestions for me..

    Thanks again everyone.. Your great.

    What I know is true after the official Verizon OTA update is that trying to flash back to 2.1 will brick your phone. The available rooting methods changed as well with the OTA update. Rootzwiki has the correct method listed for those who have the OTA version.

    According to A tweet from Birdman, once you upgrade to 2.2 the 2.1 SBF does not work anymore??

    This is definitely true with a sticky in the Droid X forum to back it up. Do not try flashing the 2.1 SBF after an OTA upgrade to 2.2. It will brick, the bootloader has been resigned to prevent 2.1 from loading.

    I used the method in the video. However many users attempting it found that you wanted a specific version of the Motorola USB drivers for it to work. I'll see if I can find that download.

    EDIT: Yep, here: http://www.motorola.com/staticfiles/..._bit_4.7.1.zip I also set my droid to USB mass storage mode while it was attached with debug enabled to run the script.

    The comments in this guide are helpful: http://www.droid-life.com/2010/09/22...l-android-2-2/

    It may have to do with the drivers. See my post above.

    Many times

    I was able to do this but had to use the 1 step method many times before it would take. Maybe it is the driver. I would get to executing the exploit and either my x would freeze or adb would hang...

    However, it finally took after several attempts with the 1 step version that uses a .bat command file.
