    Why I usually sugggest printing the guide and checking off the steps.

    It was attacking the adb until it had to relent and allow you root.

    Glad you got it going, and welcome to the dark side, lol.

    OK well I'm sure I'm rooted I just need to make a backup. Can't find a guide for that. Keep running into either rom manager or droidx bootstrapper but which do I need to use? Or do you use both. I just want to backup before proceeding with anything else. A step by step would be nice I don't even care what method or app just a solid way to backup/restore my phone when needed. I've searched but found nothing for the noob to perform the first backup.

    Sorry I know to most here this is probably trivial, but as I said I'm a noob and just want to be safe.

    *UPDATE*
    OK so I just went and used droidx bootstrapper. I completed a backup. So now I can figure that to restore it I would just reload droidx bootstrapper and run restore and chose the folder on my sd card. My question now is how do I run bootstrapper if I can't boot the phone?

    I thought I seen somewhere some one said to pull the battery and on the next boot it will goto recovery. Is this correct? If so Do you boot with A/C adapter in and the battery removed or do you pull the battery and re-install it then boot the phone? Once again sorry for the noob questions.

    I wish I had more info for you but I don't. All I know is what I read and then retain (which sometimes ain't much, lol), but it seems as though you are getting there.

    All I do know is that the way a custom recovery image works for DX owners is very different from the A855 (D1) owners, insomuch as that on the D1 we can actually flash/over write the actual recovery image and then can trick the system to not re-write our custom recoveries when it finds that it is not stock. But for the DX users a 'custom' recovery is not written to the same place as with the D1, hence the need for a 'bootstrap' somethingoranother.

    And that's about all I know. Sorry.

    good luck

    Check out the DF sister forum Droid X Forum as I'm sure you'll get a LOT of information there. Not sure why I'm just thinking of it now. Must be I've had a LOT on my mind the past week or so...

    Thanks Abe.
    One more quick one for you. In the link you provided I found these two lines
    Notice the part that says
    . During the process of rooting that same command was written as
    Does this make a difference or will the OS deal with it either way?

    Just a thought but after changing USB Debugging maybe try a reset of the phone then start again.

    @Abe Thanks bro, I also posted on the thread.

    After step 4 I got a terminal crash warning but after I restarted it I had the # symbol and was able to finish rooting. Thanks for the help. Directions work great.

    When I finished step 2 in terminal emulator (cp /sdcard/download/rage*.bin /tmp/) and hit enter to go to the next line it reads:

    cp: /tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin: Permission denied

    Now what do I do? Or, What didn't I do?

    I did Step 2 option A and got my ninja. :) I think you should consider one slight change to the instructions.
    Step 4 reads:

    1. ./rage*.bin
      This will take some time, just wait for the $ to show up so you know it is done.
    I had the $ show up almost immediately, and I was suspicious about how fast that happened, but only waited a little while longer before quitting and restarting terminal. I had no #. I rebooted and repeated the first 4 steps, this time determined to wait a long time for some other sign (perhaps a second $) and after a while "[+] forked 3801 childs" appeared, but I kept on waiting almost an hour for another $ that never happened. When I reopened terminal again I had my #. I suspect that the rooting process is finished when the forked childs line appears, not when a $ shows up.

    I just found a one click root for Droid X last night. It worked great and took about five minutes start to finish. I think the file was droidxroot.zip. If you google one click root for droidx you'll find it.

    PS. I am loving my rooted x. Got midi and speed up cpu...no lag anymore!
