    i am new to rooting, and my droid x is giving me problems. I have installed the z4root program.. and when i choose permanent, it looks like it runs through the process and then just closes without restarting. any ideas?

    To backup your apps i recommend titanium backup pro. You'll need droid2 bootstrap app if you want to make a full backup of your phone in it's current state and also if you plan on flashing custom roms. I know you have a droidx but use the droid2 bootstrap it works great on gingerbread.
