    so i just tried to root using pete's motorola root tool. and it failed. here is what it said...

    "Running exploit step 3 of 3 (adding su, busybox, and superuser.apk)...FAIL!

    Error: adb could not be granted root access via local.prop method

    Try again from the start, but if the problem continues, check your version of Gingerbread -- hopefully you dont have a version where this exploit was fixed."

    i tried again with no luck

    i'm running android 2.3.5
    system version 4.5.604

    i'm also using a milestone x. but i thought they were the exact same thing...only without verizon's "droid" branding.
    anybody run into this before?

    The ZergRUSH root should work, I can't post the link here because it's against the rules but if you google it there's an xda thread where you can find all of the information you need
