    Is it possible for me to root my droid x on the device itself? I do not have access to a computer.

    Unfortunately, no. Unless you try the maderstcok file, or one of the TBH files found in their app.

    That is a shame. I would think there would be a big calling for a simple rooting app for the droids.

    I recall people going into stores doing just that to D1s. Within a few minutes they'd have the phone rooted and running some other rom.

    That is what I want to do with my X. I just want to install an app and have my phone rooted with one click.

    Try to do a factory reset. Hold volume down while pressing the power button. Keep holding till the screen comes up.

    Didn't finish it sorry. Alright you probably know to put it in recovery mode. Then do a factory reset there.
