    Hi,

    I used to have root, when my drod X was at OS 2.1. I recently had to update because my phone was acting up (yeah, damn verizion). So, with the upgrade the root was no longer there. I have been searching and searching and trying this and that with no luck.

    If you have done it recently please help me do this. I need my wifi tethering.

    Thanks,

    I hope I'm not going to get yelled at by the mods or one of the Administrators, but I too had a problem with getting my Droid X rooted, and stumbled upon this site: RoOoLeR's Guide to ROOT / BACKUP / ROMS for 2.2 OTA over the weekend. If you follow his instructions to the letter, you can be rooted in about 10 minutes. It's quite simple, really.

    Good luck! :)
