    I tried everything. Z4root, easyroot. But my droid x will not root. I used z4root on my galaxy tab, and it rooted no problem. So whats with the x? Anyone,any ideas?

    Is Debugging checked? If not, check that and try again. If it is, not too sure...

    Gotta say it: you're doing it wrong. I'm not rooted myself, so I can't help much, but look up just a little bit, there's a Droid X subforum all about rooting, you'll probably find the help you need in there. the DX can be rooted, it's been done a lot, so check in there and you should be rooted and rocking in no time! In fact, I'll even help with what I can, here'a link to that subforum:

    Welcome, by the way!

    I just rooted my son's Droid 2 Global the other day... Z4root just spun and sat there the first time I tried it. Then, I simply rebooted, re-ran Z4root, and whammo, rooted right away.

    Try a simple reboot and see if that's the ticket...

    Cheers!

    P.S. Welcome the AndroidForums, rumblee1! :)

    I had some strange situation where I actually had to do a factory reset before z4 would work for me.

    Nothing I did would work. After a factory reset, boom, no problems.

    Mine took forever. I actually go to the point where I started to look up for recovery after a failed root. Then it rebooted and I thought I was screwed. Then it was done.

    Also skip the temporary root and just do permanant. If your phone was rooted before a flash update and now is stuck half rooted, then do the temporary root, uninstall superuser, reboot and try perm root.
