    I'm reading all that i can about rooting my DX 2.2 and it seems so complicated. Is there an easy tutoiral about rooting? From what I have read, I do not want to do that "easy root." Any links would help and even YouTube vids would be better so i can see how to do it.

    Edit: I just found How to root Droid X using Birdman's method on youtube

    Slapper, do yourself a favor and just google that question. There are lots of videos with different ways to root. That way you can pick the method you want to try.

    Why do i feel like people don't read other posts? Read the Droid 2 method thread. It can't get any easier. Install Android SDK, unzip a few files into the tools folder and run a .bat file. The rest is automated.

    Yes, I used the Droid 2 method from xda and it took about 5 minutes from start to end. Worked the first time with no problems whatsoever. Now just waiting for the unroot script to be posted. :)
