    I just got a replacement droid x because it refused to install OTA gingerbread version 4.5.596.MB810. I was rooted on Froyo 2.2.1 now i need root access. Ive tried using Z4root which doesnt work. Tried Gingerbreak V1.2 doesnt work. I need one click options as I don't understand bootstraping or any of that stuff and I don't have money to purchase apps. I'm very aggrivated. I backed up all my apps, data and settings to My Backup Root while on Froyo and need root access to obtain all my phone data!!! Thank you!

    If you have the OTA GB, you will not be able to root it yet.

    To get root, you will have to sbf back to Froyo, then install the TBH rooted .596 version.

    There is no way to root the OTA as of right now.
