    What my title states is,

    1. I want to root my phone. (I've read so many procedures and they confuse me enough that I'm starting this thread for questions)

    2. I want to add a bootlogo that someone created for me. (I have RSDlite, the phone connects, I upload the *.sdf file, I click start, and it says "Failed Flashing process. Unable to retrieve initialization values from INI file. (0x7029); phone connected")

    I've searched everywhere for an easy Walk-through for a Droid X 2.2 root. I want to learn this stuff because I wanna open this thing wide open so I can get everything I can out of it.

    I drive for a living, so I want the tethering app instead of forking 20 bucks for VZW.

    I love personalizing myself and I've learned that ROMs are my best friend. So I as well want to learn about those.

    I know this is alot and might just throw some hands up, but being guided in a precise path, i'll be able to do this stuff in my sleep.

    Thanks Guys, MUCH APPRECIATED

    Easy root

    Droid X

    Thats the easiest one ive found it takes a total of 3 clicks and your rooted. You never have to type any commands or anything thats what i used my first time. Good luck

    Right under the picture ull see "Instructions for Official 2.2 OTA ONLY"

    And right under that ull see those 6 steps are the steps for root.

    Steps 1- 5: Change to the /tmp folder on your phone, copy the file to the tmp directory

    above is from that link.

    now, copy what files? the 4 that came from rageagainstthecage?

    no what ur reading is just him explaining what each of the steps are. the code will move around what needs to be. type this in word for word in the terminal

    Okay, let's do it - type the blue parts in Terminal Emulator
    1. cd /tmp
    2. cp /sdcard/download/rage*.bin /tmp/
    3. chmod 777 rage*.bin
    4. ./rage*.bin
      This will take some time, just wait for the $ to show up so you know it is done.
    5. Go to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Terminal Emulator > and Force Stop the application
    6. Sanity check - Go into Terminal Emulator again and make sure you have a # symbol as a prompt. If so you are ready to proceed.
    7. mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    8. cp /sdcard/download/Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk
    9. cp /sdcard/download/su /system/bin/su
    10. cp /sdcard/download/busybox /system/bin/busybox
    11. chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
    12. chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox
    13. mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    14. exit
