    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

    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.

    LOL, Dont worry, I am gonna soak up all the knowledge I can from you wonderful Droid peeps. I will eventually learn and be able to make all these things on my own! But for now...I will just type to you, until someday someone like me starts asking for answers and I can actually do it! I feel like i am in college for droids...

    I dont know how to get a custom rom and wireless tether, so I will start researching...I will let you know when I get there because i definitely wanna make a wifi hotspot for my ipad.
