    I'm having trouble rooting manually, ADB's stubborn and I'm no good with a command prompt, so bottom line question is, does anybody know of a GUI based root that's out or coming soon? The X has one, and with all the progress made on the 2 so far, I'd expect it.

    It's a given. Just give it time.

    I'd put the over-under on a timeline at two weeks.

    Even if they do come out with this, I think the command line is a better root if you can get it done. My brother has a Droid 1 and the Universal Androot and Easy Root doesn't seem to work. It took me an hour and a half to run the command line root on my Droid 2 and I kept having problems. But, I stuck with it and it finally worked.

    Those type of one click root apps are very unreliable. Manual methods are much better
