    Ok, i have been reading a lot of posts on how to successfully root my X.

    It is 2 weeks old today and I am ready to do it.

    I was dumb when I first got it, and downloaded the 2.2 OTA from Verizon.

    I want to make sure I get a good backup so i do not brick it. I used to use clockwork on my old Droid 1.

    Out of experience, what is the best way to root this droid X? I am not a noob, and have read forums but there are sooo many mixed reviews on the best way to accomplish this. I want to make sure I do have a recovery method in case of anything catastrophic and I was used to using clockwork on my droid 1.

    Thank you!

    "Best" is going to be each person opinion
    Really, anything that WORKS will work "best" lol
    In my opinion/experience the Droid2 method has worked for me
    I did it on my friends Droid2, my droid X on the leaked 2.2, and again on my Droid X with the OTA 2.2
    It worked perfectly and easily for me every time.

    Which method for D2 are you referring to? I can find about 500 methods on the D2.

    There's a thread here in the root section called something like "Droid 2 semi one click method" it worked well for me.

    Used the Droid 2 method on xda that used the downloaded file on your sd card and adb.
