    OK, guys, one more Droid X is rooted!! Thanks to everyone - so simple!

    I used the updated version of the new one-click root - three exploits, three reboots - voila!

    Next I used Bootstrap to make a back up, deleted a widget to try the process and used restore; rebooted, widget restored - excellente!

    Then I used Titanium Backup to back up all market apps and system data - only THEN did I read this:
    "Usually I just backup user apps, if you backup system data and restore it later on a different rom it will cause problems."

    Oops! Dang it, I knew everything was going too smoothly!

    Can I and should I delete this complete back up and just back up my apps?

    How would I do that? Does it really matter?

    TIA

    You can restore apps without restoring the backed up data in TiBU

    What he said, but yes it is possible to delete the backup you made and make another one. I wouldn't sweat it, when restoring apps just look for the options above your app list and select app only instead of app+data
