    How long until someone do a one click, androot or easyroot that we can get off the market, do you think it will really happen? I mean my cpu is shot so I got the x, its awesome. With changes coming to the service and hardware upgrades coming to the x
    (xse-silver)I may need to root. So if anyone out there can see my words please help...

    Well, If you want to root the Droid X in one click guess you'll HAVE to use a computer. Who doesn't have one of those??

    I had this same question a few weeks back and Abe replied with the same post. His advice was golden - root process was very easy to follow.

    I get the op request and hopefully an actually apk will come out soon to just root it with a click from the phone.

    As of now you have to figure install adb and use the .bat file on your computer which isn't real hard but if you don't understand adb a bit I can see how this can get confusing. Thank god for the one available with the computer though... I grew tired of typing all the commands manually lol. But it's still be nice to have an apk to do it for those less savvy. Unfortunately, now that birdman has left the droidx scene this seems less likely so you may want to just breakdown and set up the .bat and adb.

    Also, while the one click would be nice, I'd rather the devs work on roms and possibly even the bootloader(I know... very unlikely).

    its honestly just following directions. the commands will change everything that needs to be changed. just extract the .zip, put all on your sdcard/download folder, and type the blue commands into a terminal emulator.

    Abe....I think it's over my head too. Just follow instructions is easy to say but you have to be good at that too. Some of us aren't that great at it.:eek:

    I'm pretty happy with my D2 as is, I don't think I even want to root.
