    Are you sure that your phone isnt already rooted?/?

    I would try to uninstall z4root...reinstall it and then try to root the phone Via z4root..

    If that doesnt work.. your best bet is to Root it the Manual way like addressed in this thread.. or else try to get those drivers installed..

    all in all.. ill help however i can

    So its off the Market but those that have it can still use it? I rooted mine 1-click rootmyx2 method. But still grabbed z4root for the heck of it.

    Can somebody confirm supported/recommended Clockworkmod Recovery for DX as well as ROM Manager? Getting mixed posts on versions working/not working for Nandroid Backup/Restore. Thanks!

    Hopefully i answer your question(s) -

    - Koush's DroidX BootStrap is the ONLY WAY to flash Clockwork onto the DroidX.

    - ROM Manager does work on the DroidX however it CANNOT flash ClockWork onto the DroidX.. It can still flash ROMS.

    - When making a Nandroid Backup Via - Bootstrap -> Clockwork it is recommended that you rename your backups. When Renaming your backup DO NOT put spaces in the file name.. this has been known to cause a Error, when trying to restore them.

    Like i said i hope i answered your questions. I have had a long day, and am sort of confused when trying to interpret your question(s)
