    I had 2.1 and rooted very simply with easy root
    My phone updated to 2.3.15 (without my permission) and now I can't seem to get root. I tried DOroot... no dice

    I still have the superuser icon

    Easyroot says that I am still rooted... can't unroot

    Busy box says that I am rooted but cant find busybox? I reinstalled BB... no dice

    I tried wiping cache and card then clean install of OTA... thought this may help... NOT

    So... those of us that were rooted now stuck with whatever crap verizon chooses to shove down our throats??

    Well if you can't get it to work with doroot, you can always just SBF your phone and start a fresh.

    DOroot failed numerous times
    Error 6 Failed to give proper permissions sys files

    I have debug checked, USB PC mode
    I am the sys admin

    What am I missing here??
    I feel as if I am jumping through so many hoops to even get to this point
    1st it was the .net framework... then I forgot to update the SDK (I finally chose 2.2 as I didn't see 2.3.15) Next the driver not recognizing the DX... Spent ions right clicking the ! in devices and trying to find the damn driver...I found that the issue was the only driver install that worked was from the moto site, not the many that I found in previous threads:

    USB and PC Charging Drivers - Motorola USA

    To recap

    I have a DX that was updated to 2.3.15 OTA (without my permission)
    I was previously rooted with 2.1 using Easyroot... and it was EASY No Issues... worked 1st time

    I still have the super user icon after the update
    but busybox is not found even after reinstall
    BB install states that I am rooted but it cant find itself? Jeeez
    I tested root with Titanium... no dice

    Any suggestions??

    Thx much

    EDIT:
    See my next post!

    Did you try doing it in Charge only mode with debugging enabled? I had to do that in order for mine to work.

    SOLVED! There IS a 1 click 2.2 that worked 1st time!!!

    Follow this thread

    One Click Droid X Froyo ROOOOT GUI! - Droid X Rooting - AllDroid Public Board - One Click Droid X Froyo ROOOOT GUI! - Droid X Rooting - AllDroid Public Board - AllDroid.org > Home

    [​IMG] RootMyX2.zip

    It rooted 2.3.15
    I had to manually copy the Busybox, SU, and superuser files to my SD
    Then downloaded the busybox program and for the 1st time it asked for superuser perm!

    Is there a way for someone to update the wiki with this info???
    I followed that info and have significantly less hair on my head as a result LOL

    I'm currently writing step-by-step tutorials for hacks I've tried and been successful with. The tutorials include links for all the files and software you need organized in one place.

    Check out my site at TweakMyDevice | and give me some feedback. Go easy on me, it's only the 2nd website I've built ;)

    Let me know of any hacks/tweaks you want to see that aren't there and I'll work on making a tutorial for it.
