    So it sounds like if I used adb and only renamed apks, as long as I rename them back I should be ok to use this method.

    Yes if you don't put them back and unroot you would have to root again to put the apks otherwise they are gone even if you wipe my best advice is when you have it at stock (all bloatware and no root) do a system dump "adb pull /system/ /system" this copies they system folder to your pc so everything will be as it should apk wise

    Just wanted to share my experience.

    I rooted my X the other day and deleted some bloatware. When I tried installing the over the air update it failed. I found a site that had backups of the bloatware so I just reinstalled the apps I previously removed. I was then able to install the over the air update.

    After all of that, using the original posters instructions I was able to unroot the phone. I just wanted to see if it would work so now I guess it's back to rooting it.

    Oh and just to make sure it was unrooted I opened up my battle.net authenticator. If the phone is rooted it gives a message saying a rooted phone could compromise it's security. This message was gone after the unrooting.

    Will it perform the OTA update if rooted and still having the bloatware?

    Yes it will. It's weird though it seemed like it needed to have the bloat ware installed in order for the update to take place. So I would suggest not removing any apps until you perform the update and keeping backups of them if you delete them.

    Is there an easier way to root your droid x that does involve and coding knowledge. I'm a Web designer but I suck in shell. Is there something like UnRevoked for the Droid X?

    Could you simply remove the files with Astro file manager?
    For some reason when I am in adb and try to remove the Superuser.apk it says that it is a "Read-only file system"

    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/mtd/mtdblock4 /system

    Then you can remove it.
