    Found the original Droid X root method a bit unsettling? Well, fret no longer. Thanks to Sil3ntKi113 over at Alldroid, there is now a 1-click root program for your Droid X. Similar to unRevoked's root application for the Incredible and the various jailbreaking tools for the iPhone, DroidX Root requires very little of you, aside from plugging your phone into your computer. You will also need .NET 3.5 Framework installed on your Windows PC (note, Vista and Win 7 both have .NET 3.5 automatically integrated, so no need to worry, unless you're running XP). And as a relief to many, Android SDK and ADB are not required, because all the appropriate drivers are integrated into the application. Give it a go, and let us know if it worked for you.

    Also note, after you root, and before you make any modifications to your Droid X, you must read Droid X Root Ultimate WrongDoings, or you will brick your phone!

    Download link here: DroidXRoot.zip

    Thanks to johnomaz for the tip!

    Not really. But the Droid 1 had a very simple root method, basically just applying an update.zip in recovery, if you remember :) i know it's been a long time.

    the droid x requires a few extra steps, so this 1-click root is nice

    I posted this in the DroidX hack forum a few hours ago and I can say it worked on my DX just fine. I'm on the 604 update too. I turned on USB debugging while I was already connected to USB. It didn't work until I unplugged my USB cable and plugged it back in. After that, it worked the first time right off. I'm very happy with this solution and am happy to have free tethering on my phone.

    i guess it's safe to say that if i don't know what "rooting" is, i'm not ready.

    Didn't mean to post in the topic that got locked, so I read that you have to unzip the files first...I'm assuming that you do this on the PC and then run an install file? or am I looking at this the wrong way....

    [​IMG] Article: Droid X: Runnng Froyo - Coming Soon to a Phone near You

    [​IMG]

    No this is not a hoax, and your eyes are not deceiving you. This is a screenshot of the DroidX running Android 2.2 (Froyo). Not a lot of information is available but jump into the forum to see what I know and to share what you know

    What I know:

    ** Yes it still has blur
    ** No it does not have the new froyo homescreen
    ** It behaves and looks just like current system.



    wonder if thats the real ota or if they got around the...........

    can you post a step by step process in the OP please? i have tried to perform this and it just says it is installing drivers. i am not sure if i need to have the phone in a specific mode for it to actually start. i have the .zip d/led, and running the .exe and clicked the root button but nothing happens, no progress. thanks.

    So the feedback from this method is that it works for some and doesn't for others. What I want to know is has this method bricked or messed with any of the phones when it doesn't work?

    this will probably cause a lot of commotion from noobs cause this makes it so everyone can do it so now no one will know whats going on i think everyone should do it the old school way at least once then this could be for just quick use for those you know what they are doing
