This method was originally used to root the Droid2 First off All credit goes to Sebastian Krahmer at C skills.

I have changed the directions a little to make them slightly easier and suited for the Droid X. Whats needed ADB for instructions on setting up adb see this video by unlockr Current Motorola Drivers Rageagainstthecage 1.) Enable usb debugging if you dont already have it enabled Spoiler Go to settings on your phone then applications then development check the box for usb debugging[/Hide] 2.) Extract rageagainstthecage.zip to c:\droidxroot 3.) Connect your phone to the computer via usb cable 4.) on the computer open the command prompt. (In the start menu under accessories) 5.) cd to your adb tools directory. For most the command would look like this cd C:\android-sdk-windows\tools 6.) adb devices (This should list a device as a long number under list of devices. If it doesnt something is wrong.) 7.) adb push c:\droidxroot\rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp 8.) adb shell 9.) cd /data/local/tmp 10.) chmod 0755 rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin 11.) ./rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin (This can take a minutes just let it go until you are returned to your adb tools folder) 12.) adb devices 13.) adb shell (you should now see a # instead of a $) 14.) mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system 15.) exit 16.) adb push c:\droidxroot\Superuser.apk /system/app 17.) adb push c:\droidxroot\su /system/bin 18.) adb push c:\droidxroot\busybox /system/bin 19.) adb shell 20.) chmod 4755 /system/bin/su 21.) chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox 22.) mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system 23.) rm /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin 24.) exit I would suggest rebooting your phone but its not required.
