    Z4root works with the dx. There is a cool apply called root and me for free in the market. That is helpful. Rooting will give you full access to your phones potential. If you want to overclock your CPU, wireless tether for free, block all ads, change boot animation, take pics of your screen, not to mention flashing or running new operating system called ROM's

    the question might be a little too open-ended.
    if you do a search on rooting you'll get many threads that you should read.
    short answer, it allows you to do many things not normally possible, from roms to themes to overclocking and much more.

    rooted, on liberty 2.0.1, slightly oc'd

    Root and me is just for info. You can download z4root from there if you don't already have it. Then run it and click root. You can temporary root just to check it out but why bother? When you are rooted you should see a new app called superuser. You will then be rooted. Next, download wifi tether

    You can d/l. z4root from the Android market.

    Not sure if this is where I need to post this, but I need major help. I rooted my droid 2 with z4root, installed the dx/d2 overclock. I was going to change overclock to the droid overclock, but I don't see it show up on my superuser. Does anyone know how to grant permissions to different apps using Superuser?
