    if you wanna customize, go look in the root area of the forum, and look for themes. there are some pretty sweet ones over there. Here is a screenshot of mine, thanks to Fabolous.

    So what is the benefit of having rooted your phone?? Do you have access to tethering??

    there are just more things you can do with your phone that you couldnt do without root. although, beware, it voids your warranty. there is a great wireless tether app, screenshots, overclock, access to system files, etc...

    It's essentially EasyRoot, but made completely free by the developer. I don't know what, "extras," it has or if it comes with the installation of other things like BusyBox, but it has the same purpose overall. You can root your Droid X on the device itself without having to use a computer or even the mobile terminal.

    Version 1.6.2(beta) works on HTC Desire v2.1 for temporary root now.

    I thought I read somewhere that rooting your phone will not void the warranty, but hacking the bootloader will? Since the Droid X root does not mess with the bootloader, I was hoping it would not void the warranty?

    Rooting your Droid X voids your manufacturer's warranty with Motorola, as well as any extended warranties that you may have purchased with Verizon. When returning your device, or having it taken in to be serviced, you may want to un-root it before doing so.

    Messing with the bootloader can, and most likely will, completely brick your device. It is encrypted and we are currently locked out from accessing it.

    It's a 1-click root app but it doesn't affect the bootloader so it only works with some apps. I only used it to enable the Wireless Tether app and it also works with SetCPU. Unfotunately FRG22D disabled it, I'm awaiting an update to fix this. The app is not available on the market, you can find more info on this app here
