    I have tryed everything to root this phone the z4Root, and DoRoot and verytime for each platform it take me through to the end and has yet to root. Now my phone is acting crazy and I have no ide how to get it back to the where I started. This is the best phone I've had so far but this root stuff has ruined my Droid X. I just tryed the z4root for the last time. New my phone only charged half way and its been charging for more than an hour. HELP

    What's your system version? Z4root will not work on Gingerbread.

    Okay,I started the GingerBreak at 10:00 pm it is now 6:26 am and it has not stop running exploit. I'm begining to think that it would have been a better ide to just give Verizon their $29.99. So far all the things people are saying about rooting my phone has been false, I don't understand what makes my phone any different form other. I thank everyone for their help but I really need a list of what to do 1,2,3 that way I'll be able to follow it step by step.

    Check YouTube videos for a step by step rooting process. Forget that z4root crap. It didn't work for my OG Droid so I did it the old fashioned way. Make sure you read the video comments first to see if it worked for others. Good luck.

    As I understand it, he has a DX, not an OG Droid. The D3 method works on Gingerbread. Google 1-click D3 method and you should find what you're looking for.

    For gingerbread you need the latest version of gingerbreak. If that doesn't work, you have to download the rooted sfb and sfb

    It was supposed to work for my OG as well. I'm saying it was garbage for me, it's obviously garbage for him. I think doing the old fashioned root is better anyway. Gives you a better understanding of the phone if you're unfamiliar with the whole process.

    Agreed, you should always start with an sbf... That way you start off fresh, but if I'm not mistaken he won't be able to sbf back to froyo... He maybe stuck.

    It can be rooted if you want froyo you can sfb to it then have your root.if you want gingerbread rooted your gonna have to sfb. Sfb is returning it to bone stock and the only solution if your bricked or stuck

    I had no problems rooting multiple times using this method. How can it be garbage for him if he hasn't tried it yet? I agree with SBFing if you're jumping from ROM to ROM or having problems, but rooting doesn't require an SBF.

    Follow these instructions and you will be fine. SBFing back is NOT necessary. Root the .602 GB you have now with the top link. Less than 5 minute process.

    The "one click" root method IS AVAILABLE now. Not to mention it is the simplest of all. Scale of 1 t 10. Sbf'ing and rooting froyo is an 8. The way i am telling you is a 2..... that may be high. I have done 6 Droid X's running GB this way. Believe me....it is very simple. Install the moto drivers on your PC. Unzip the the one click root file to your desktop and then click the icon "root my droid3". 3 minutes later you have root. (yes it says droid 3 but it works on the X to)

    A couple of the bigger things are backup your apps/data, flash ROMs/themes, and freeze unwanted preinstalled apps (bloatware).
