    I'm sure someone has made a nifty topic on how to root a Droid x.. problem is I can't find anything.

    If anyone can post a link to a thread or tell me how on here. Would be awesome thanks

    I'm really starting to get annoyed. None of the file downloads work.. they are all unsuccessful.

    Are you using a computer or your phone?
    Either way... This method requires a computer

    No you don't... just the proper files and divers installed
    On your phone... Use a different browser... Like dolphin...

    Post script: to root your version it will require a computer

    With 605... It won't work trying from the phone...
    But if you follow the link I posted higher up... There is a section talking about routing it with a Mac

    TY its a DROID X so I am guessing you know this and that the Droid 3 method works.
    Root my Droid 3 method...right?!?

    I love you droid intelligent people

    Thanks again I will try that. I hope that even though I am not a smart phone person I can do some smart computer work and get this phone rooted.
