I used these steps to root my Droid X
-Root -Download Droid X Bootstrapper (this is essential) -Download ROM Manager -Download ROM Manager Premium (This saves your butt so I suggest paying) -Open Droid X bootstrapper and hit the first button "Bootstrap into Recovery" (It should then say "Success") -Open ROM Manager -Press the top section which says "flash ClockworkMod Recovery" (a popup window will give you a few selections and choose "Droid X", it should then say "Successfully downloaded Clockwork Recovery") -Then goto "Backup Current ROM" (It will bring up a popup with a default date as a name. You can change this if you wish.) -Hit OK (your phone will then reboot and begin the "nandroid backup" which saves the entire state of your phone at this time. It will return you to the exact place at which you saved if you get in trouble. The only thing you do not save is some apps which you can go to Google Market, hit menu -downloads and restore them.
But when I try to make a backup in rom manager it restarts the a triangle with a android robot cones up, with a yelow bar as if its loading up then it gets about a quarter of the way and then phone just restarts.
