    I think everyone is afraid to screw around with the bootloader without a proper sbf to fix bricks.

    The Droid X has been ROOTED!

    Today, Birdman had successfully ROOTED the Droid X. It's just a matter of time before every does. Check out the VIDEO to see how.

    I will have a new developer donation link up soon, he is well known on this forum! Your right the more developers working on hacking the Droid X the better.

    Alright, I don't think anyone really answered this adequately. So I'll put my professional lurking career aside for a second to tackle this.

    1. This is an open source community. No one charges anything. If we didn't donate, nothing would really happen. A lot of these "devs" are bored college kids making things on the side for extra coinage. If they're loaded or not, I have no idea, doesn't really matter. They have already made things that we all use and will continue to use, so we pay them back. There's now a new feat for them to conquer, so we're supporting them in doing so. If you follow this site it's not as unconnected as you make it sound. The developers are heavily part of the community, they work with everyone and give us what we want, and the non shisty people then donate in thanks.
    You said you're an IT, so just relate it to microsoft vs linux. They work off two WHOLE different concepts. You're bringing a microsoft mindset into a linux world.

    2. I didn't buy the phone, but if I did you want it cracked before a new one comes out. If it isn't cracked soon enough, everyone will just roll over to the new phone and leave you in their wake. The biggest part about custom roms to me is the longevity it gives a phone. In a few months a company will give a rats ass about its broken promises and only worry about future phones. You're now stuck with the phone for another year waiting for your upgrade. When if it's cracked you still get the updates before the company even releases them, killing a lot of the headache of having old things and saving you from spilling out a few hundred pointless dollars. (Rooting and Roms are two different things, Roms requiring getting past the encrypted bootloader are the biggest problem.)

    And to cover everyone's dismay, Motorola came into a OS part of the market and added an encryption. That doesn't go over smoothly. I don't see a problem with this as it is their product, just so as I make the decision not to buy it. And someone might want to correct me on this, but I think Motorola is part of the OS phone agreement (don't know the actual name for it, but close enough.) Kind of ass backwards to call yourself OS then throw an encryption on your product.

    Cracker what a great response.
    Here is the link to the OHA, Open Handset Alliance: Open Handset Alliance

    I agree that they locked software that was not theirs, they might have added their splash of NinjaBlur on top but the core of the software was free for them to use and should be left accessible for everyone.

    I really hope that this person came in at the last post and saw people posting donation links to help crack the Droid X and assumed it wasn't hacked.

    A blind monkey could understand that a root has been found.
