    Hello,

    I want to go about rooting my Droid X, but after searching around these forums I still have a few questions.

    Primarily, before I begin what is the best way to back up my phone so that I can restore it if I mess up, or want to unroot my phone. Also, if I do back up my phone, is it possible to unroot it at anytime?

    What is the best way for me to root my phone? I only have access to a mac. If I mess something up I can just restore the phone right?

    Thanks,
    Tantoes

    Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, it seems that that method requires a windows computer.

    Ooops! I'm sorry. I didn't even pay attention to the fact that you said you only had access to a mac

    +1 to guy above for SuperOneClick. This is like the last word in rooting, I wished it had been around sooner, haha.
