    I am looking to root my gf's droid x but its not mine on my plan so i dont want to end up bricking it(obviously). My ? is this. She just got the hpone shipped to her yesterday and i was planning on taking last night and rooting it loading a new rom and everything so i dont have to hear i want this changed or that changed. anyways i looked in the settings and if im not mistaken it said she was running 2.1xx update1 blah blah whic i coulda swore i heard was easier to do then after the froyo update. im not with her now but i told her to decline any updates it offers because im assuming that there is an easier way to do it with her not updating to 2.2. could someone point me in the direction i need to be ...jus a link to the thread would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    2.1 update 1 can be rooted with one click using Easy Root from the Market.

    I believe Verizon has suspended the rollout of the 2.2 OTA update due to some issues people are having once updated.

    The same method for the d1, dx, and d2 can be found in a guide in the RS Guides section:

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/re...08-multiple-phones-root-them-unroot-them.html

    It is not a one click root method but it is free and just involves typing a couple of lines and slapping the enter key when told to.

    I find less people having issues with manual method than one-click methods. Maybe more use the one-click methods, I dunno. For me I'd rather know what I was about to do. I also always want to know how to undo what I'm about to do too...just in case something goes wrong.
