I just got my very first smart phone ever (I'm super late to the part), the Droid X, and I'm loving it so far. I'm a game developer, and a rather tech-savvy person overall. I've been reading a bit about rooting, and installing the Android OS updates, and I'm leaning towards wanting to root my phone. At first I was a bit against it, because the phone is brand new, and my first smart phone, but I realized that I'm exactly the kind of person who enjoys messing with devices in this sort of way, and it's definitely something I want to do. That being said, I have Android 2.2, and a brand new Droid X out of the box. I'd like to root it, and install Android 2.3 on it. I DO NOT have a carrier, and just use this thing with wifi. I would however like to get on Verizon later, so anything that conflicts with that (don't think there is much, but I figured I'd mention it anyway) should be avoided, or not be irreversible. While I'm well aware there are many guides, I'm having trouble finding exactly what I need with a brand new Droid concerning getting 2.3 without a carrier. If someone could leave me instructions on how to root my phone safely, give me a heads up on anything I should know about or be cautious of, and direct me on how to install Gingerbread 2.3, that would be amazing and greatly appreciated.
