    Please know that the instructions are from rainabba post.
    I just tried to make it a bit simple. Hope it works for you.

    First go to the link below this line and follow instructions on how to setup adb on windows.
    Setup ADB on Windows (USB Driver v3 from SDK r7) - Motorola Droid X Support/General - AllDroid Public Board - Setup ADB on Windows (USB Driver v3 from SDK r7) - Motorola Droid X Support/General - AllDroid Public Board - AllDroid.org > Home

    ONCE THAT'S DONE DO THIS:

    - Download android-sdk_r06-windows (this will give you the adb.exe AND AdbWinApi.dll that you will need)
    There may be other ways to get those files. But for sure the files are in there.

    - Download: DroidXRoot_v2 you can find it here (must register) DROID X IS ROOTED! (ADB and Shell as SU with System mounted as R/W, NO Flashing or bootloader yet) - Motorola Droid X Rooting - AllDroid Public Board - DROID X IS ROOTED! (ADB and Shell as SU with System mounted as R/W, NO Flashing or bootloader yet)
    You can also follow those instruction but for me they were a bit hard.....

    Now that you have the files do this:
    - Go to you droid X, settings,Applications, Development, and ENABLE USB debugging.
    - Plug your X to your pc and choose PC MODE

    NOW:
    - Go to your C drive and make a folder called X

    NOW,
    - unzip the android-sdk_r06-windows and go to the TOOLS FOLDER. Copy the files ADB and AdbWinApi.dll
    Copy those files to the X folder you created.

    Now,
    - Open the file DroidXRoot_v2 you downloaded and copy all the files to your X folder as well.

    Now, click on your PC, START and search CMD and click enter. This will open a "dos" window. Now copy and paste ONE BY ONE the lines below and hit ENTER for each one. In the DOS window you MUST right click the mouse to PASTE.

    CD c:\x
    adb push Superuser.apk /sdcard/Superuser.apk
    adb push su /sdcard/su
    adb push busybox /sdcard/busybox
    adb push exploid /sqlite_stmt_journals/exploid
    adb shell
    cd sqlite_stmt_journals
    chmod 755 exploid

    NOW:
    On your phone, navigate to a screen where you can switch wifi/bluetooth on/off easily (settings, or a home screen with a widget).
    IMMEDIATELY after executing the next step, toggle wifi or bluetooth off and back on copy and paste the following:

    ./exploid
    rootshell NOTE: You'll be prompted for a password. PASSWORD IS:
    secretlol
    cp /sdcard/Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk
    cp /sdcard/su /system/bin/su
    cp /sdcard/busybox /system/bin/busybox
    chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
    chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox
    rm /system/bin/rootshell
    exit

    THAT'S IT.

    Go to the market and download root explorer or any other ROOT NEEDED app.
    When you open it it will ask permission and you know its rooted.

    Will the root stick around after updating to 2.2? Or will it need to be done again?

    Why you worried about that now? Just root it and enjoy.
    But to answer your question, yes you will have to do it again I BELIEVE.

    I'm at the ./exploid part, and I keep getting permission denied?

    I was never prompted for a password, but I did try 'secretlol', but it still said permission denied.

    I was finally able to root my phone. You left off a couple of steps. You need to exit twice and then:

    To Confirm root is established:
    Run "adb shell"
    Run "su" (now you should see the # sign which indicates you are root)
    Watch your screen so you can allow Superuser root access.

    If you don't do these steps, you won't have root access.
