    I rooted my droid x late last night and now I think I may have fallen in to a crack in the system or something...
    When I are rooting my phone last night the root was complete and was working and the 2.3.3 update restarted my phone and I lost the SU privileges but the app remains...
    I tried to reroot and nothing happens z4root freezes and easyroot thinks that I am already rooted...
    I tried going back to factory settings and it nothing changes except the amount of time i spend redoing my settings....
    i also tried to update my SU and I get this error message.

    Automatic update failed

    An error occurred and su was not updated. A zip file ( has been placed on your sdcard, please reboot into recovery mode and flash it to update your su binary.

    help me out :confused:

    I rooted it on froyo. If you can guide me on the process i would be very greatful. The flashing of a prerooted version went right over my head. thank you so much for your help so far. I am basically rooting this from very little experience. the lingo has been harder to pick up then I expected.

    Ok, first of all, we should make sure that you are in fact on Gingerbread. Go to Settings>About Phone, check your System Version, it should be 4.5.596.MB810, and your Android Version should be 2.3.3.

    If thats right, then we're going to have to SBF your phone back to FroYo. There are 2 ways that you can do this. <-- I recommend this

    SBF&#8217;ing the Droid X U D G <-- a little more involved, but just as good

    Once you have SBF'ed back to FroYo, you will need to reroot using z4root. If your phones tries to upgrade to Gingerbread, don't accept the update. After you have root, download and install Droid2 Bootstrapper. It can be found on the internet, or you can purchase it via the Market. Download Titanium Backup and install it. Use it to backup your apps. Just your apps, not your system data.

    Download both file parts below and place them on your sdcard.

    Open up Droid2 Bootstrap, click on Bootstrap Recovery, then Reboot Recovery. Your phone will reboot into ClockWorldMod. Install zip files from sdcard. Be sure to install parts 1 & 2 before leaving CWM. Reboot. You should now have a rooted DroidX running Gingerbread. redownload Titanium Backup and restore your apps through it.

    And remember, we are not responsible for whatever you do to your phone, we only provide advice lol.
