    Right, I rooted my Droid X today morning (I know, late to the party) and used an app called super manager to rename the apps which I didn't wanted. I wanted to delete them but read it here that it's a better option to just rename them, so I think I did well on that front. :)

    What other things should I do now that my phone is rooted? I must admit that I rooted it primarily to remove the idiotic apps but I want to increase the capabilities of my phone. ROMs, Overclocking..I read about these but haven't got the foggiest idea what they mean. I would appreciate your comments here to make this incredible phone even better after it has been rooted. Thanks a lot.

    Thanks! When you say make a backup, does that mean back up the user data I have or the apps? Or back up of the OS?

    Ok. Here's what i'll say. There are a TON of threads here on this forum that cover things like rooting for those who know nothing about rooting.(edit) I really enjoy helping people and normally would push this into one of those threads. However, with your last question and the feeling that I have that u have already gone further than u should have before knowing more, I would like to sit in this with u and make sure u r ok at least to start. R u ok with staying in this thread and talking with me? Also I hope I didn't come across as rude. :)

    Good! :) And you're quite welcome! Firing up the pc since my dx is gonna die soon. Ok. So hang tight a minute. In the meantime, go to market and buy dx bootstrapper. This is a must.

    Now, JKM, undo the renames of those apps. I want to get your phone to the state of exactly how it was after root.

    Don't mind at all. I will post a link here that is a one click root access app. Called z4root. you will download that to your phone and install it. Let me know when you are at the screen that says Temporary Root or Permanent Root.
