    Hey guys, Ive been trying to figure out how to root my droid x the past few days, and to be honest, nothing is working. I checked out the hack thread stickied above, and to root it says to use the GUI rooter, but that wont work, ive tried about a hundred times and each time it says failed to root.

    So i tried to do it manually, and i cant even install the SDK because it says that i dont have the java program installed (which i had just installed) so i cant install it. Then i tried the guide that has the DL link for a folder called 'dorootforme' which has a .bat file in it, which doesnt work even with admin privs.

    ack, im at my wits end! can anybody help me? my end goal is to get Dark Android for rubiX 1.9.5 installed.

    It is called Droid X Recovery Bootstrap. Download it from the Android Market and load it just like any other app.
    I rooted with Z4Root and it was easy and worked great.

    Don't go to far too fast

    Before you go any further, get the titanium backup, load it, then get the up grade to PRO, its worth it, Back up, freeze what you want, and you're good to go. If you're thinking of tethering, I got the android tether and its working great. Good luckdancedroiddancedroid
