    Droid X - 2.2 - Rooted

    Attempting to deodex, followed the instructions exactly on this thread (http://androidforums.com/droid-x-al...w-manually-deodex-your-phone.html#post1477490) but on my last step when entering "mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system" I get the following response from cmd prompt, "mount: Device or resource busy"

    The OP said I should try placing the phone in Windows Sync mode or whatever it's called, as opposed to USB Mass Storage, just tried that and again, same message.

    If no ideas how to fix this, does anyone at least know what to do so that when I reboot I won't have to do a Nandroid restore? It's getting really annoying going on the 3rd or 4th time

    Thought I'd get more assistance posting here than IN the actual thread... Thanks in advance!

    Ah I remember why I didn't do that one before, the link to the file they tell you to download is broken. Happen to know if there's a new one up?

    Orrr, I actually applied the files from yesterdays "The Bomb" post, the sbf, etc. That's how I rooted. Does that include Deodex when applying to a 2.2 Droid X?

    Hm, all links work just fine for me. Which one is broken for you? As far as deodex, might be wrong, but I think it's not included.

    Ah, must be the security here. Tried it from multiple computers and all failed, tried it from phone on 3G and it worked. Thanks.
