    EFFING AWESOME!!! You would not believe the trouble that I was going through trying to find the best way to root my new DroidX 2.2 version 2.3.151.
    1. Simply go here http://handheld.softpedia.com/get/System-Utilities/Enhancements/z4root-110178.shtml to download Z4Root from Softpedia.
    2. Then transfer that file to your SD card.
    3. Navigate to it using your prefered file manager (Root Explorer, Astro...)
    4. Select the file for install
    5. Reboot phone
    6. Start Z4ROOT
    7. Then select temporary or permanent.

    The rest will take care of itself. HAPPY ROOTING!!

    Lol... don't be sad. This is a time to rejoice for some. I enjoyed learning the hard way, it made the reward that much more sweet. Its my ole lady that's the one who will be relieved. All that's left for me to do is wait for SimplyStunningX v.1.1 to finish downloading and I will be all set.

    If you follow the link provided they claim that it works on ALL android devices. It worked on my DX but when I had the D1 I did it the old fashioned way. Hope it works for ya!
    If I were you I would be sure that you are current on version updates. menu>settings>about phone>software updates (that's for junior droids like me). I am working on fixing that little problem right now.

    Yeah, when he said it makes him sad, he was referring to the fact that there are dozens of threads on here about Z4root already.

    I know, I've read all the post already too. You just never know when someone might find another exploit hole in frg83d 2.2.1, I was hoping that Z4ROOT found that hole.

    because?....well because I'm lazy and wanted to root my daughter's og Droid the easy way. I guess rsdlite here I come.

    Oh! I so sorry masta droid. Thanks for pointing out my ignorance for not doing a search for something that I only just discovered after hours and hours of reading. Maybe those dozens of threads were playing hide and go seek with me, the guy who didnt know he was supposed to already know without being told or stumbling upon it while I was in the middle of gathering download after download of SPF and driver crap while I sifted through set after set of incomplete instructions. OR, maybe I am just some idiot who thought he would try to help someone else who is in the same boat with me. So it would be helpful if you guys could keep this forum clean of useless dribble and let somebody who needs it have less "days of our lives" and more informative tasklist and ideas.
    My bad for getting excited after being up all night. That is all.

    And how people who shouldn't be rooting in the first place resort to one clicks to put their phone at an even higher risk of being messed up, resulting in more threads on

    "OMG Iz BoREKed MeH phOnEz."

    That is mainly why.
