    Hey I have a droid x and my dad is very hesitant on letting me root it. What is something I can say to convince him that it is safe and not going to harm my phone? I will use z4 root which is pretty simple I have 2.2.1

    Any help is appreciated!

    Why root it if it is his phone and he is hesitant about it?

    My primary reason for rooting is to be able to use the custom recovery to make full nandroid type backups. Maybe the idea of full backups to save data and settings will appeal to him?

    Well, he pays the bill, so I think that's the end of that discussion... ;)

    Well, unless you can convince him that it is pretty near impossible to brick a phone by rooting it, if done properly, then I dunno.

    Show him the link in my signature, that will show him how easy rooting is on the Droid X, and how harmless it really is, I mean, you can't actually brick an X... So yeah, that should be a good reason. :)

    Or just do it, without saying anything. Heck, my dad didn't know what Android was! Haha.
