    I have spent countless hours reading forums, googling, downloading, etc. Please read this and let me know what I am doing wrong. Thanks.

    I had my droid x rooted when on 2.1. I did the OTA 2.2 update. My phone is now 2.2 VZW. I own a mac computer. I have VMware Fision, but I suck on a PC (nothing every goes right).

    I have tried many things but it seems that my phone still has the remnants of Super User Permissions (icon on screen, but not really on droid). No one-step method works-says I am already rooted, but I am not. I have down loaded rageagainstthecage directly on the phone as a zip file. When I extract I do not get a .bin file. The .bin is missing. I really need help as I am obsessed with this. If someone has any ideas and wants to PM me, I am OK with that. I will offer a stipend to fix this up. Thanks in advance.

    As a stipend, I will only ask one MILLION dollars! Just kidding.

    Now you say you have "downloaded rageagainstthecage directly on the phone as a zip file". But you don't way where you are downloading it from and/or what thread/guide you are using. If I take what you said exactly as you say it, I am led to believe that the file you are downloading is not actually called "rageagainstthecage.zip", understand where I am coming from?

    Anyways, the thread I am going to link has you download a rageagainstthecage.zip file to your phone, etc., but more importantly it is full of Droid X owners who have used it to root successfully. Use step 2 option a. Read it a couple of times first, and then even better, print it out and carefully check off the steps as you go.

    good luck

    Glad I could help. I got all the info free, but if you really wanna give some money, give to the next homeless person you see.
