    I had rooted my phone using easyroot before the update and worked great but now I want to remove the superuser permission icon since I no longer am rooted with the new update. Tried reseting my phone but the superuser icon was still there. What do I do?

    Ok I kinda guessed I would..... so is there a one click step to rooting droid x 2.2? Does anyone know if easy root works for the droid x 2.2 now?

    if you do end up wanting to unroot your phone the easiest way is to download a terminal emulator and then do the following

    enter su and the $ should turn into a #

    then enter the following commands and press enter

    mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system

    rm /system/app/Superuser.apk ( the S is capitalized)

    rm /system/bin/su

    rm /system/bin/busybox

    mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system

    then reboot your phone and Super User will be gone.

    Z4root worked flawlessly on my droid x. Haven't tried to unroot yet though.

    Just tried z4root, and it appears the phone is now frozen. Can't use any of the hard buttons to get off the screen. I'm kind of afraid to power off or battery pull...
