    Okay so I am having major problems trying to figure out how to root my phone..

    I have a Droid X

    System version 4.5.605
    Android version 2.3.3

    I DO NOT have a computer to use and no way to get to a library to use one. So if that's your answer just don't bother posting.

    I tried the z4root method to no success.

    And when I used my friends computer I tried Motorola one click root technique to no success...

    Also all the times I've tried to download the driver files or really any files that a certain way requires the download is unsuccessful.

    Am I just a moron or what?

    Do you have super user in your app drawer?
    You can also get root checker from the market

    To remove bloat you need a system app remover from the market...
    And to change file names you need a file browser with root access

    Post script: to use terminal emulator with root access... Type in su then hit enter..

    I've never used astro... So not sure there... I use ghost commander....

    And a good tool to get is root tools by jrummy... You can remove bloat and so much more
