    Rooting 2.3 update

    Hey all, first post. Been interested in rooting my phone for awhile now for a few reasons. Would like to use it as a wifi hotspot without having to give Verizon money to do something that I should be able to do for free. Also, my buddy has the HTC Evo4 and I LOVE HTC interface and want to find a rom that is similar to it. I've been reading for hours on this website and haven't found anything pertaining to the 2.3 update. Everything that i've found seems to have to do with 2.1 and a little about 2.2. So my question is, is there anyone that knows about rooting 2.3 and is there a rom out there like the HTC interface? Thanks.

    This is how I rooted my droid x How to: Root DROID X Running Official Android 2.2 - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog

    As far as the HTC look. I would recommed ADW launcher. Then use the HTC theme.

    Edit: As far as I know rooting 2.2 and 2.3 is the same. If it doesn't work the worse is you just don't get root.

    Ok, followed all the instructions on that page, windows said it was sucessful, restarted my phone, so how do i know if it's rooted? I don't have the little ninja icon that everyone seems to be talking about.

    The ninja thing should be a app.. Download a terminal emulator and type su . if it returns a pound prompt your rooted. If it says unsuccessful rerun doroot

    Where do I find a terminal emulator? And what do you mean type su?

    Open "The Market" and search for terminal emulator download any.

    When you open terminal emulator It should look like this. The very first command you will see is "su" without quotes.

    OK, when i type su it says permission denied, so i'm assuming that the rooting didn't work?

    Both times it said rooting sucessful, both times it says permission denied. Not sure what's going on here. Maybe did I screw myself by updated to 2.3? Is there a way to revert back to 2.2?
