    Yeah...ok...so what are you trying to get at exactly by demonstrating in such a way? :icon_eek::rofl3:

    Sure, you can back out of z4root once it has started its processing...will it matter 1 way or the other? I dont know...but I do know that in every Droid X or D2 that I have had an issue rooting with z4root, only by doing a battery pull did I get it to actually finish and take root. Just my experience...

    As far as watching videos goes...the OP stated he also was having a hard time getting said video links to work..therefore, in my opinion, it was better to just give him the easy-peasy steps in black and white rather than have him continue to get disparaged and overwhelmed...its not Rocket Surgery we`re doing here after all...:dry:

    Z4root has shown its self to be pretty damn fool proof as far as its likelihood in "bricking" a DX or causing someone to have to SBF on its own...

    In the end, its up to the OP to do what he feels is in his comfort zone...

    wireless tether problem solved

    I had grabbed the wrong app. I loaded wireless tether 2.0.06 for root users. Upon opening I got-
    "Sorry, but your kernel does not have all necessary features for the Access Control feature of this application. Access Control will be disabled"
    What should I do to gain access to the "Access Control".
    Short of that the wireless applcation works fine.

    Not really anything you can do. I believe access control lets you select what devices can connect to your phone. You can use WPA and set the phone to let you know when something connects, so I don't think it's a big deal..

    DX rooted with 2.2 now longer works after upgrade

    A little over a month ago Verizon pushed out an upgrade to my Droid X and now it is running Android version 2.2.1 and System version 2.3.340.MB810.Verizon.en.US I had the phone rooted but now it is not allowing me to start the tethering process anymore. I have read a number of threads on rooting the phones that weren't previously rooted or were running on different OS's. Can someone please help so that I can get it rooted again?

    Thanks
