    Just came from an rooted droid eris. That was a HTC phone and while just getting familiar with the X it seems the process and procedures are a little different/more confusing.

    My brand new X came with 2.1 update1. Now my only reason/purpose for rooting is really only for custom roms(if even available or stable for the X yet, but not that important atm)/apps requiring SU permissions like wireless tether and setcpu. Although i doubt ill need to oc this beast. And tweaking the os to be better/faster/how i want it like removing bloatware.

    With that being said, like i said im running 2.1 update1. And im hearing something about the X getting Froyo 2.2 anyday now? Should i wait for that to hit my phone before i do anything?

    Some people are getting the OTA as i'm typing this. I would just upgrade if you don't mind not having root. I think if you root with UniversalAndroot it should keep root since the su is moved to /xbin automatically.
