I've had a Droid X running factory settings (with updates to 2.3.4 now of course) since August 2010. I've really just never gotten around to rooting it; it hasn't given me enough problems to make it urgent. In the past few weeks, though, it's stopped reporting the battery level correctly, and I need to do something about it. I'm aware that there's a chance the battery is just dead after all the time, but I'd like to try fixing it on a software/firmware level before buying new hardware--it jumps from 75% down to 40% in five minutes, then I lock it and unlock it and it's at 17%; I plug it in and it jumps to 50% in under a minute. It also ran at so-called 5% for nearly an hour last night. In any case, I figured since I was planning on doing a factory reset I might as well try rooting it and installing Liberty or CyanogenMod. What I'm finding here... is thoroughly discouraging. Should I even try rooting this relic or are my chances close to 100% of spending fruitless hours trying and failing?
