    Not sure if this has been posted or is widely known about, but I found it on another droid forum:
    GUI DroidX Root Program - Windows Only - Droid X Rooting - AllDroid Public Board - GUI DroidX Root Program - Windows Only - Droid X Rooting - AllDroid Public Board - AllDroid.org > Home
    Its a GUI to root and unroot your DroidX. I'm going to test it out and see if it works. If it does, it will help a lot of people. I personally couldn't get ADB to push files.

    EDIT

    It appeared to work just fine. I am now rooted as where I couldn't get ADB to recognize my device trying to do it manually.

    Users need to be aware that Alldroid requires membership to download.

    We've posted this as well but have yet to really see people jump on this.

    You definitely got it to work though?

    Yes, I got it working. At first, it didn't, but then I unplugged the phone and plugged it back in to USB and the USB debugging kicked in. After that, it worked 100%.

    I for one was very happy as I couldn't get ADB to push files to my DX. This app didn't have any issues once USB debugging kicked in.

    I imagine people wanting to root will use it. People that already wanted to root probably already rooted using the ever so complicated method of typing some lines in a terminal window. ;)

    I may try this. I have never rooted before and am code-writing-retarded......

    Maybe because registration is required? That's an effective way for a site to boost it's membership. We don't require membership for anything we offer to download.
