    There is an easy 1 click method at xda for the Droid 2, it also works for the Droid X.

    once I read through the whole thread and was confident i understood the procedure, and any possible problems that might occur, it didnt take very long to actually do it. maybe 15 minutes. you dont have to change the rom if you dont want to. all I have done so far after rooting was overclock it a bit. still kinda new to this stuff myself. as for the free apps when rooted, never heard of that...

    You won't lose anything. All your apps, contacts, pictures, music, everything will be fine. All this procedure will do is replace you stock recovery with sprecovery, install busybox, and give you root acces. Its really pretty easy. Just read it carefully and follow every step as it is written. Make sure you understand it before you try it.
