    I followed these steps from the droid-life.com website found here: How to: Root DROID X Running Official Android 2.2 - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog

    Instructions:

    Download: DoRootForWindows.zip
    1. Extract and Update Android SDK package to your computer. (Our instructions here.)
    2. Next, extract the files from the DORoot zip file to the tools folder of Android SDK.
    (Take them out of the folder they came zipped in and place in tools.)
    Ex: C:\android-sdk-windows\tools
    3. Install Motorola Drivers: (32-bit or 64-bit)
    4. Enable USB Debugging on your phone and plug it into your PC. (Settings>Applications>Development)
    5. Double-click and run doroot.bat
    6. Let it run.
    7. It will let you know if it has finished completely.
    8. Reboot your phone and you are rooted!
    If these instructions don’t seem all that clear, follow the step-by-step guide which includes adb commands. Our instructional post can be found here.
    Enjoy your newly rooted official 2.2 Droid X!

    The only thing I did differently is that I used the correct Motorola driver for Windows XP. But After I click doroot.bat the following occurs and the phone doesn't root.

    Congralations, you should now be rooted.
    No Errors

    Enter exit once to exit terminal.
    Press any key to continue . . .


    What did I do wrong? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    if your goal is to root the phone why not try other simpler methods. there is Z4root, you can also try the rooting without a pc method posted in this forum. that's the one i use, very simple, literally takes 5 minutes.

    with adb if the drivers aren't correct you will have a problem you also need the correct version of java, there's a lot to it.

    Did you install the Android SDK? Are you logged in as Admin?

    the ADB not recognized is typical if you did not install the SDK and did not place the files in the Tools folder of the Android SDK folder.

    Make sure you have done all this first. Sounds like you aren't set up to run adb commands from anywhere but the adb/tools directory.
