Please know that the instructions are from rainabba post. I just tried to make it a bit simple. Hope it works for you. First go to the link below this line and follow instructions on how to setup adb on windows. Setup ADB on Windows (USB Driver v3 from SDK r7) - Motorola Droid X Support/General - AllDroid Public Board - Setup ADB on Windows (USB Driver v3 from SDK r7) - Motorola Droid X Support/General - AllDroid Public Board - AllDroid.org > Home ONCE THAT'S DONE DO THIS: - Download android-sdk_r06-windows (this will give you the adb.exe AND AdbWinApi.dll that you will need) There may be other ways to get those files. But for sure the files are in there. - Download: DroidXRoot_v2 you can find it here (must register) DROID X IS ROOTED! (ADB and Shell as SU with System mounted as R/W, NO Flashing or bootloader yet) - Motorola Droid X Rooting - AllDroid Public Board - DROID X IS ROOTED! (ADB and Shell as SU with System mounted as R/W, NO Flashing or bootloader yet) You can also follow those instruction but for me they were a bit hard..... Now that you have the files do this: - Go to you droid X, settings,Applications, Development, and ENABLE USB debugging. - Plug your X to your pc and choose PC MODE NOW: - Go to your C drive and make a folder called X NOW, - unzip the android-sdk_r06-windows and go to the TOOLS FOLDER. Copy the files ADB and AdbWinApi.dll Copy those files to the X folder you created. Now, - Open the file DroidXRoot_v2 you downloaded and copy all the files to your X folder as well. Now, click on your PC, START and search CMD and click enter. This will open a "dos" window. Now copy and paste ONE BY ONE the lines below and hit ENTER for each one. In the DOS window you MUST right click the mouse to PASTE. CD c:\x adb push Superuser.apk /sdcard/Superuser.apk adb push su /sdcard/su adb push busybox /sdcard/busybox adb push exploid /sqlite_stmt_journals/exploid adb shell cd sqlite_stmt_journals chmod 755 exploid NOW: On your phone, navigate to a screen where you can switch wifi/bluetooth on/off easily (settings, or a home screen with a widget). IMMEDIATELY after executing the next step, toggle wifi or bluetooth off and back on copy and paste the following: ./exploid rootshell NOTE: You'll be prompted for a password. PASSWORD IS: secretlol cp /sdcard/Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk cp /sdcard/su /system/bin/su cp /sdcard/busybox /system/bin/busybox chmod 4755 /system/bin/su chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox rm /system/bin/rootshell exit THAT'S IT.
