    Howdy! I'm working on a friend's Droid X and I apologize but I couldn't find an answer within my limited searching.

    Does GingerBreak still work on OTA GB X's? I've got a friend who's on 4.5.602 and before I try softrooting I wanted to make sure all is well. I'm more of a hands-on guy, but if GingerBreak is still working on a stock X and it doesn't require wiping (which she is opposed to) then I'll give it a shot! :)

    Thanks for the help so far!

    Gingerbreak does not work. Use this new method:

    Thanks, bouchigo!

    I've also updated the Moto Droid X Root Guide with this link, too, so that other's should be able to find it easier.

    Cheers!

    I think it will root a 2.2/Froyo Droid X as well as GB for several phones other than the Droid X.

    No one ever figured-out the memory offsets needed for Gingerbreak to work on the Droid X (feel free to look at the C source code for this--it'll scramble your brain; I know it did mine ;)).

    Cheers!

    no thanks i'll pass. I sufficiently fried my brain this weekend trying to get everything set up to possibly start learning how to do my own theming.
