    I was looking for any information on how to root Droid X2 I looked in the list and did not find it listed I know what rooting your phone is and I understand the benefits and possible side effects if done incorrectly I have tried to do as much research as possible and am still not finding the answers I am looking for. I have jailbroken iphones and ipod touches as well as unlocked many phones. The droid X2 has me still confused as to where even to begin the process of i have seen people call it Pre-rooting. I dont know what I should use as far as the rooting app with what my system is running nor can I seem to find anything on 2.3.4. hopefully maybe someone here can give me a step by step process to follow for what I need to have on my phone as far as apps software and so fourth to get my phone rooted. I have put all my phone information below. any advice tips or instructions would be much appreciated. I am a beginner at all of this new technology and am just trying to get into it so I am lousy with the abrev. like SPFing OTA ROM Nandroid?? Also Froyo dont really get where I can find any specific how to's on knowing what they do where you can find them what they mean. I believe froyo is something you go to for back ups other than that I am not quite sure. OTA I am guessing firmware?? I am truely at lose with all of it and would love to learn more. I am not planning on rooting my phone until I am absolutely sure that I can do it and that I understand every aspect of all the steps and programs involved. thank you in advance for any help or tips Droid X2 Android version 2.3.4

    First, this is the wrong subfourm but I am sure a mod will move it. Second, search on this site and google are your friends. Use them and enjoy the wealth of information that flows fourth. This FAQ thread should help out a lot. http://www.droidforums.net/forum/re...-dummies-guide-android-terminoligy-lingo.html

    Edit: I went over my post after posting it. I didn't mean to come off rude but simple google searches will save you much more time than waiting for a reply.

    Petes one click root tool worked just fine for me. Just google Petes one click root tool from your computer. Download the program. Then hook your phone up and root. Its pretty simple.
