    Using Z4 Root on my Droid X. Watched the youtube video and it says it should take 2 minutes max. Mine is going on 8 minutes, still working.
    I'm starting to get nervous!

    Now the spiny thing is not spinning. Looks like it's hung up. Bottom of the screen says "Running exploit in order to obtain root access..."
    That was on the screen since I hit Permanent Root. The spinning thing was going around for about 8 minutes, not it stopped completely, been about 7 more minutes now since it stopped.

    Not sure if you got it to work or not but my X got stuck in the same place as yours several times. I pulled the battery twice and on the third time it rooted in under a minute. Kind of weird, but it worked.

    Should not take that long. Restart the phone and try Z4 again

    Make sure it is not in a folder and it is just a file on the base of the sd card incase you downloaded the app straight to your phone. I had some issues when it was in a folder.

    Sent from my DROIDX using DroidForums App
