    Dear Droid forums people,

    I just got my new droid x a couple days ago and I wanted to try out tethering so I used http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...d-root-droid-1-droid-x-evo-4g-within-app.html to root my droid. I installed Wireless Tether, Quickboot, Autokiller and AdFree. They all seemed to work fine until I dismounted from my mac and the SD card was stuck Checking for errors.

    Once the SD card started checking for errors the phone started running really slow and everytime I went into my apps screen it went very slowly and choppy. The screen then went black for about a minute and a half and the phone would then restart.

    I also seemed to have lost the ability to connect to the network, i have no signal at all and so i can only access the internet on my phone through wifi :( This makes my phone useless until I get some help.

    Everytime I have the phone on not mounted to my computer it will restart every 3 minutes whether I open the my apps or not, it will happen instantly when I open my apps though.

    I am really scared, I just got this phone and I really just want it back to how it was, it was dumb for me to try this without the adequate research, and any help is super appreciated!

    Try a factory reset, or simply formatting your sdcard.

    If you read the post in the link you posted it says not confirmed with the DX yet. It is always vital especially in the early stages of "Root Development" for any device, to read as much as you can before moving forward. Try to get with someone on the ---> Droid X Forum <--- and see if anyone has tried this method and had the same issues, hopefully someone has a solution for you
