    Okay, so I decided I didn't want to "root" my DroidX, but I have the Superuser icon stuck in my menu button. Anybody have any cracks that can take it off?

    Thanks in advance!

    Welcome aboard.

    Lesson here: always figure out how to undo that which you are about to do:)

    That would have been way to easy. The instructions in the link I provided shows you how to remove the superuser.apk file.

    It wont be under your downloaded apps you will need to show all system apps
    so you hit the show system apps or all apps (sorry been on 2.2 for to long) dont remember and it's not there
    Maybe try rebooting see if that removes it from the app list

    Ughhhh, I "attempted" to root it with a different file log and such, it's not pulling... Sheesh I wish I could just go to Verizon and get them to wipe it COMPLETELY clean... Is that an option. Cause I didn't root any of the main apps or anything like that....

    Yes that should be an option you can do no need to go to Verizon
    Look under settings>Privacy settings then Factory data reset. You will have to reset up your phone like it was new.

    Waiting on my X due in Monday they say its shipping Thursday. I may cancel it, i'm having way to much fun with my good old Droid.
    I keep reading these X posts and don't see any real big advantages

    You could just install launcherpro and hide the icon that way

    Soooo I tried to follow these steps over and pver and nothing is working.. Could you possibly take it step by step... Apparently I'm the only person that doesn't know how to unroot my phone... I didn't root it in the first place, all I got was that damn Superuser icon on there... =/
