    Just want to introduce myself here! Ive been reading for a couple days on here about the Droid X, cuz I really want one.

    I saw that you couldn't root it because Moto put a glitch in the phone, but looks like you folks have figured it out successfully.

    I just dont want to buy an expensive phone and have it be a brick.

    I want the 2.2 software, and Verizon is draggin their feet.

    So, Im on the fence weather to just purchase the phone or not. The other phone Im considering is the HTC incredible.

    Anyways, I really enjoy this site! I have used many car forums in the build of my Firebird, so I know the wealth of knowledge available to someone who joins! :)

    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    You'll like the DX... With or without Froyo the Droid X is an awesome phone! But don't take my word on it cuz I drive a Mustang! :D

    Great, thanks! I will probably need a little direction when it comes to modding the phone, but Ill enjoy it the way it comes for now, before I start making it better. :D

    that's wise. at the very least, getting superuser access (rooting) makes the phone more under one's control, imo. :)

    yeah, that is what Im reading. I was put off by the reports that it could go bricked by doing this, but looks like you folks got around that. :)

    I found that "easy root" offers you one-touch rooting, and you can unroot. Any thoughts on this particular program? Or would you recomend another one?

    I am looking for ease of use, and easily undoable should the need arise to bring it back for repairs.

    ok, how do you find that specific program? Do you look for it in the apps on the phone, or how does this work exactly?
    I wish there was a "rooting for newbs" manual or something like that. haha.
