Root Seeking help for (already rooted) X

    My X is already rooted. It's running the 2.2 leak and have FlyX 0.1 installed. (Theme or ROM? Doesn't matter...)

    Yesterday: Decided to reboot my phone. Came back 20 minutes later and it was stuck at the Motorola logo. Pulled the battery and it booted as usual.

    Today: I want to install the 2.3.15 update. I am trying to reboot into CW Recovery via ROM Manager, yet it won't reboot. It asks if I want to, I click yes, and it does nothing. Tried manually rebooting it. Same thing as yesterday. Stuck at logo and battery pull fixed it.

    Anyways...all I want to do is install the 2.3.15 update. Can someone please help me? I don't know what's going on. Thanks!!!

    Make sure to redo the bootstrap (hit the top button) and reflash the clockwork recovery in ROM manager. You can alos just use the bootstrapper to boot into recovery and do the upgrade manually.

    If you do that
    Mount the system then "install zip from SD card"--> Choose zip from sdcard --> find the file and select it reboot when done.

    I have tried what you suggested. Still doesn't work. I click the reboot in both apps and it just does nothing.

    Any other ideas? I'm so confused!

    wow:thinking:...are you sure you are rooted?

    That was and still is my thought. ROM Manager won't be squat for my right now. And Titanium Backup fails when I open it. Tries to download BusyBox, which I already had/have, and it says it won't work.

    Yet I'm running FlyX.........

    The last thing I did with my X, I think, was deodex and install FlyX.

    I had no idea. But I definitely rooted. At least at one time. (Even have a thread on that too....lol)

    How can I see if I'm rooted or not for sure?
    And if I'm not, can you please help me root? At this point, I have no idea where to start.

    I'm on step 4. I don't see anything with that name and so I'm lost....

    Instructions for Linux and Mac

    1. Extract and Update Android SDK package to your computer. The file comes in a .tgz file. Just open it up and drag and drop the android-sdk-linux folder to your home directory or desktop. Next, download the doroot.sh file and put it into the tools folder of Android SDK.
    2. Make sure you phone is in PC Mode with USB Debugging enabled
    PC Mode: Notification blind -> USB connection -> PC Mode
    USB Debugging: Settings -> Applications -> Development -> USB debugging
    You need USB debugging icon showing in notifications. Try Charge Only if you can't get PC Mode to show USB debugging.
    3. Navigate to the tools folder of your android-sdk
    [cd /android-sdk-linux_x86/tools]
    4. enter [chmod 0755 doroot.sh] then run it [./doroot.sh]
    5. Let it run.
    6. That's it, you are done.

    Okay, I'm doing it on Windows now. When I open the program/command prompt, it can't find my phone. USB and debugging it definitely on...

    It sounds like you may have figured this out, but this happened to me after one of my .zip flashes. It turned out I did lose root. Bootstrap would say sucess, but it would not reboot to recovery. I did the 2.2 (droid 2) root method and everything worked great.

    Thanks for the insight. I'm 99.9% sure I lost root. Not sure when it happened. I believe I also used the Droid 2 method to root my 2.2, which initially worked. I'm just unsure of when and what happened to make me unrooted.
