Sadly, currently, the only available method is the paid one over at XDA. I am in the same boat, only I have the R800X, I am just gonna wait for a new exploit or something.

Yup, the only current root method is the paid method above. I myself am waiting for a new exploit.

XDA will not accept Verizon's ip address so is there another way to get this root app

What are you talking about? There is no app, a guy unlocks your bootloader and roots your phone via remote control.

I wonder how long until they root the R800a. I just finished getting my X10 all setup the way I like it then I pick up the Play. LOL. Now I have to wait again for a way to root it. Hopefully they root is soon for It will be nice to play with once rooted.. I just finished rooting my Asus Transformer so that will have to keep me occupied until then........
