    I followed the instructions from here: How to get 2.2, Rooted, on your Droid X - Droid X Rooting - AllDroid Public Board - How to get 2.2, Rooted, on your Droid X - Droid X Rooting - AllDroid Public Board - AllDroid.org > Home and tried to root my stock 2.1 phone to 2.2. However, after going through all the steps, dropping back to the C:\ prompt, and trying to access "su" from the "$" prompt, I get "unknown user root."

    Do I need to remove the files I pushed to the phone before trying to root again? I've rebooted the phone and it comes back showing 2.1 update1 is still the OS version. Searching on the forums, I haven't been able to find a solution so any help is appreciated!!

    No one can offer any advice or thoughts? Should I just try one of those one click root programs like easyroot or androot?

    So, I have previously rooted (using motofail) my phone and I have found out that I am dumb when it comes to all this software mumbo jumbo here. I had a software update (to 6.12.181) that would not install, and I thought it had to do with the root. I unrooted using DoomLord's 1.5 utility, and now I have a problem. It seems that I had accidently changed my LCD Density to 243 and now most apps are not compatible with my phone anymore, so I thought I could re-root and fix the problem. However, when trying to re-root using Motofail, it won't work. Untitled.jpg I cannot install SuperUser again and have no way (that I know of) to change my LCD Density back to stock 240. Can anyone help me out?
