    So I finally rooted with the dorootforwindows.zip method which worked fine, BUT I immediately went to backup with bootstrapper and when selected 'bootstrap recovery' instead of bringing up the superuser access, etc I got this error message:

    Failure
    Error Running exec().
    Command: [su, -c, ./data/data/
    com.koushiikdutta.droidx.
    bootstrap/files,surunner.sh]
    Working Directory: null
    Environment: Null

    Needless to say I didn't know where to go from there. I did download droidbootstrap from a link off a guide to backing up your droid (My Brain Hurts: Droid X Recovery (and Droid 2 too!)), and now just saw it available on market. Could my original version be corrupted? I'm unsure if maybe I skipped a step! Brand new DX running Froyo 2.3.340 or so it says.

    Thanks,
    Should I unroot before or just go ahead and run z4root. Also if I just go ahead with installing superuser from market is there any possibility of screwing anything up?

    Ok thanks where do I get sbf.zip? Oh and I swiped over and turned on my wifi and my dx completely froze and would not power down. I had to take the battery out and back in and power up to restore the phone which was still sluggish. What happened?

    I'll be rooting later tonight when I get off work. Any recommendations, tips I should look for? I'll be rooting with Z4.

    1: make sure you are on the latest firmware 2.3.240
    2: root with Z4root
    3: install boot strap.
    4:hit bootstrap recovery, then hit hit bootstrap recovery reboot
    5:make a nandroid backup of the stock rom, just in case you mess up something


    Droid X rooted with z4root and running DarkSlide V4.2 underclocked ( to save battery)
