    If I root my Droid X will I loose my current apps and data?, also do I have to install a new rom? or can i just use the SU function and be ok? and if I dont flash a new rom is there any reason to root?

    No you won't loose anything when you root.
    No you don't have to install custom rom.
    There are lots of reasons and benefits to root.
    And its easy as click.

    To my knowledge there is no root method available for .621 yet. But do you research. You may be able to go back to .602 or .605 however I am not totally sure on it.

    If you updated to 4.5.621 there is no way to root it yet and you can't sbf back to where you were before you updated. So your pretty much stuck where your at for now.

    As far as a solid root method for 621 i personally haven't seen one yet unless someone came out with one today. Unfortunately you can't use any other sbf besides the 621sbf anything else won't work.

    I feel your pain, it would drive me crazy not being rooted. Hopefully something will become available for you to root. Just curious why did you take the update in the first place? Im assuming you didn't know not to take it if your rooted.
