    So some things I am smart at and some things I am a dumba$$ at when it comes to technology. So here's where I am dumb. What exactly is Rooting? and what are the advantages to it?

    Rooting in the simplest explanation is looking at your phone like a computer. Now if your not the administrator you have certain things you can't do. But if you are the admin, you have full access to everything. This is what rooting is, it grants you "superuser" permission over phone. Basically the best way to look at it is, getting more out of your phone and trust me you won't regret it once you do make the jump. The custom ROM scene for the X is coming full swing, and also the custom themes are coming along nicely. Hope this helps :D

    got any ideas on how to do it from ubuntu linux? I went through a root tutorial or two but it seems to me that they skip a step and it goes from an orderly and logical progression to chaos.

    Droid X
    2.1 Rooted w/ Easy Root
    Kouches Bootstrap Recovery installed and full backup done

    Some themes I see have an update.zip. Is it as simple as putting that at root and go into recovery and apply?

    In 2.2 media sync mode works like pc mode
    So what you need to do is first turn debugging off and put it in media sync and let your computer install the drivers, then turn debugging on and let it install the drivers again
    You should be good to go after that:D
