    just google z4root to your phone or computer and install it on your phone and your rooted. can't remember if you need to unlock bootloader or not bc i don't have the DX but here's a link for more info. DROIDX - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog

    P.S. check the forums for DX hacks! it will give you rooting info for the future

    Try z4root, its in my sig. Install it and run it. If it takes too long and its not doing anything then reboot and try again. Thats it, it will reboot when finished then you should be rooted. If you need help, reply or you can PM me. No, you do not need an unlocked bootloader either.
    Also, :welcome: to the forums!

    Rooting is harmless and will not ruin your phone. Only YOU can ruin your phone by making certain actions after you are rooted. If you don't know about precautions and such I would read up before rooting and just installing any old root app on the market. If you don't have the knowledge on root and ROMS and such you CAN ruin your phone..at least to an SBF

    Rooting does void your warranty but if you unroot and fix all the changes you made your warranty will no longer be void

    As stated just follow the links in my sig for rooting the DX....Z4 is linked there as well as options for using a PC if you wish.
