    What is the easiest way to root my droidx? I Purchased easy root and was unsuccesful..later found out that it is no longer compatible with 2.2 on the x.. Is this true? If so would anyone happen to know the easiest way to root?

    It really isn't that difficult. Just follow the directions, take your time.
    It seems a little scary but it isn't hard to do.
    I managed to do it, it was my first time doing it this way.
    Now I think I have rooted it three times, (SBF resets) and tried every rom out right now.

    DX Root

    This is what i used to root for the first time. Just follow the 6 steps and its easy as pie. I do recommend reading up on rooting and the pros and cons. And what happens if you brick and so on and so on.
