    Like Showstoppa said, it will technically void the warranty, but I couldn't live without a rooted/hacked/modded phone, been doing it for too many years.

    A simple root won't do much except give "administrator" access to programs/apps on your phone. Rooting IS the first step to mods though. A simple root and you can re-ROM your phone, you can de-Odex it and theme it up.
    I suggest doing your homework on this and read, there is plenty of material about it on these forums here. Z4 root is the most current one button Root/UnRoot, and there are a few places to get it if you can't find it.

    Good luck to you sir and enjoy your X. If you continue you will soon learn of it's "real" capabilities.

    I have the same version as you do. Z4 is good for that version.
