    First of all, welcome to the forum, Fireproof1905! If you're on 2.1, you're going to have a little wait (no one's sure exactly how long) to root it, as the "hole" that was found to root the software in the first place has been closed up. I'm sure the new one (if it exists) will be found... soon.

    :welcome:

    Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new droid. :byeBB:

    One thing to know about rooting is it WILL void your phones warranty so if something does mess up on your phone you will not be able to get a replacement. Something to think about before you root.

    Hello Everyone, I'm still on vz BB Storm but had peral, tour, storm1 and 2 and I'm anticipating my Driod X to be deleivered in the next couple of days. It's a little bittersweet, I'm excited yet wondering if I'll be missing my BBM. But after reading most post, looks like noone has looked back again. (fingers crossed)
