    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I do believe you have to have headphones jacked to use.

    My guess is that the headphone cable doubles as an FM antenna. Suppose you might be able to use a 3.5mm extension cable instead.

    The cable does double as an antenna.

    A couple of questions.

    The first instructions in Section 2 option A are

    • Visit the market and get the free Android Terminal Emulator installed.
    • Visit the market and make sure you have Astro installed.
    • Grab rageagainsthecage.zip with your phone
    • Use Astro to navigate to the /sdcard/download folder
    • Long press on the rageagainstthecage.zip file and "extract to this directory"
    • The 4 files, from the zip file should now be in the /sdcard/download folder (rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin, su, superuser.apk and busybox.)
    1) I did not know how to grab rage.zip with my phone, and downloaded and unzipped it on my Mac instead, and dragged it into the download folder. What is the correct procedure be to do this in my DX? I am using Dolphin, if that is useful information.

    2) I previously set up ADB on my Mac by following the instructions here: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-x-faq/74089-how-setting-up-adb-mac-osx-your-droid-x.html Does this mean I can use terminal on my computer instead of Android Terminal Emulator? If so, do I need to first enter some additional commands to communicate with my DX before I continue with the rest of the steps listed in the rooting instructions?

    Thanks.
