    A little over a month ago I attempted to root my Droid x, the result was getting no further than a black permissions page, I decided to remove the superuser program entirely and found I couldn't, I reset my phone in an attempt to wipe it....now I am asking what I can do, which I should have done from the start , how do I remove it or get it to run? Help!!!

    The superuser program when ran will come up blank until you start granting programs superuser status (and click the check-mark to remember this option)

    Then when you open superuser it will list the programs you have granted this too.

    You have to open a root friendly program/app. Root Explorer, Bootstrap, Boot Logo changer and/or any other you need root to use:)

    The easy and free one is wireless tether-get it from market and when you first run it, it will ask for superuser rights

    The free Root Explorer will not ask for permission, it is just like Astro, a file manager. Try wireless tether like Wyatt Earp suggests. Or maybe even ROM Manager free.

    Pay for the full version of root explorer. Well worth the $.

    Deleting vs renaming apps is quite the discussion. I use root explorer to rename my unwanted apps from .apk to .bak - the app still resides on the phone but does not run.when an update is available then I can just go in and change them back to.apk, reboot and have them all running again.

    If you delete them and an update comes out you will be scrambling to find the lost programs.

    Also there is a sticky thread -how to remove bloat ware and inside it is a list of apps you can"remove"without affecting something major. When you start doing this , I suggest do one at a time, reboot and see if it affected something.

    LOL! How did this thread turn into a "get Root Explorer" thread?

    I thought he was trying to figure out SU permission:)
