    I just literally got my Droid X two days ago, I am upset I can't let my friends use my wifi so I am determined to figure this Root, and free WiFi tethering. I need some help...I'm a complete noob with this phone and so all the help I can get will benefit me.

    use the search feature, there is plenty of good info.

    i recently used z4root (from the market) and had zero problems rooting. it took longer to reboot the phone than to root

    The easiest way is with z4root- available for free in the Market. It is a one push root method. As for wifi tether I use Wireless Tether for Root Users - also available free in the market. If you have any more questions just ask. :)

    Did you turn on USB Debugging in the applications section, under development?

    Are you sure you have root access? Do you have a Superuser Permissions application in your app drawer? If you click on it does it open?

    If not, you're not rooted. If so, let me know. I'll hold your hand. If you do have root open up the market, search for "tether", scroll down until you see "Wireless Tether for Root". Install.

    Open the app and then click the green logo make sure you press "allow" to allow the app to run with root access. You'll want to remember your selection as well.

    To find the app drawer: perss the center icon on the botton of your home screen that looks like an up-arrrow, this brings you to the app drawer it is where you can access all your apps on your phone.

    As for the superuser app, it is in the app drawer. It will either look like a ninja in black or a skull and cross bones. Here's a screen shot with the skull and cross bones: [​IMG]
