    Greetings, everyone, from the Black Hills of South Dakota! My wife and I just bought 2 new Droid Xs this weekend, using Verizon's BOGO special. As I'm coming from a significantly tweaked Palm Treo, I'm definitely interested in modifying my X a fair deal. However, with this new 2.2 OS I've got some learning to do. Apparently the first thing I need to figure out is how to backup and restore (SBF?) my X safely. Hints?

    I'm really looking forward to learning with everyone and, quite possibly, doing some sharing myself.

    Hi Jefft,
    First off, welcome to the Android community! As far as backup and restoring your phone, I'd check out Droid X - All Things Root - Android Forums, as that will probably answer a lot of your questions that you have about rooting/tweaking your phone. Hope I could be help, and again, welcome!

    Ok, an update. My DX is now rooted! Used Z4 Root, which ultimately did the job. However, not without difficulties. It hung on me twice (exploided for over an hour each time), and froze once. Each time I uninstalled Z4, rebooted, and tried again. Finally, on the 4th try it happened quickly (within 5 minutes), and the DX was now rooted. Confirmed by Superuse, Busybox, and the fact that Droid Overclock works fine. Initial quadrant score (stock settings) of 1356. Now to make a backup, deodex, and begin to have a lot of fun! Thanks for the awesome repository of priceless instructions and tips here!
