    I down loaded z4root installed it and hit the permanent root and it started the down load. It was taking so long I had to stop it and my phone is acting crazy. It won't let me dial out, and everytime I try to restart the permanent root I get Sorry! The application z4root (process com.z4mod.z4root) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again. Everytime I try it gives me the same message, can someone please help.

    Pull the battery, then turn on airplane mode and permanent root again, that is if your still 2.2.1 if you got the OTA GINGERBREAD update you'll have to use Droid 3 one click or another method

    Thank you however, it is not working for me. I go through the whole thing and it seems like it is working but in the end it just wont root. Any more suggestions would greatly be appreciated.

    Are you on 2.2.1 or 2.3.3?

    I am having this exact same issue as cooler thought described in first post...however I am running 2.3.3. Do you have any Suggestions for me? I have followed lots of youtubes and everyone's suggestions about deactivating my phone and having wifi turned off and USB debugging and I still wait over 15 min and have to do battery pull and then still end up getting the stopped unexpectedly message, getting really irritated w my droid which I normally love...thanks in advance for any help!!!

    I have a solution for you...STOP ROOTING YOUR PHONE! JUST LEAVE IT ALONE AND ENJOY THE TECHNOLOGY YOU HAVE. If you were an advanced user, which I don't think you are, then you would know how to do this **** without bricking your phone. Would you try to change you cars engine just because there was a youtube video on how to do it? You probably screwed up your phones...dumb asses!

    It's pretty hard to brick these phones unless you do something really crazy. I've flashed and rooted my Droid X about 100 times.

    Z4Root stopped working with a later version of Android. But if you are still on Froyo it should work. You may need to do a factory reset and clear data and cache, then try again. It will take a little while to get all your data and apps back to normal, but you should be fine.

    Well, success. I did not 'brick' my phone and I dont really intend on doing too much stuff without researching it first. HOwever, I have rooted it. I read and read and figured it out with some help from these forums. I know that you must learn and start somewhere so here I am. I was originally interested in rooting because I was interested in turing my phone into a wifi hotspot for my ipad so I thought I would try, cant hurt, it is my phone and it is capable of it. Well thanks for your help and if you have any suggested downloads or ideas it would be greatly apprecited.

    FYI I did not screw up my phone, but thanks for the vote of confidence. I was informed that most people on Droidforums.net were all welcoming and nice, guess you dont fit that description calling people names. I actually think that if you do want to learn something the best way is to research and learn. I dont feel as though that makes people dumb, it actually is why people are so good at things they do, and that is also why there are forums for almost everything. Have you ever been to a doctor?!? They call it a practice for a reason, Doctors practice medicine to get it right, nothing is a perfect science! Trial and error!

    Have a great day :)

    You do know this is a help forum right? There is no sense in being hateful about anything on here. I see your point but in the future you should not try to make someone sound inferior.
