    I'm trying to root my damn Droid X (pardon my frustration; It's been a long, uncooperative day). First I tried the method found here: Multiple phones - Root them, unroot them - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum

    I tried using Step 2 Option A, since I don't have Windows on any computer I own or have access to. I get to the following part before it doesn't work properly:
    I try to do step 4, but after typing ./rage*.bin I get an error message: Cannot find adb: No such file or directory

    So I want to try some other method, since I don't know how to solve the adb problem, nor have I found any help online.


    I have the official 2.2 OTA update and I'm running Linux Mint 9 GNOME.

    Anyone know what I should do?

    the file is actually rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin; I believe they were just doing that as shorthand.

    this is how it should look:

    1. cd /tmp
    2. cp /sdcard/download/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin/tmp/
    3. chmod 777 rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
    4. ./rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
    Hope this helps!!! ;)
