How to root the Droid X2?

Use Gingerbreak. Available here:

[26.04.2011][v1.2] GingerBreak APK (root for GingerBread) - xda-developers

I emailed myself the file. This is my first android phone and first rooting experience, this couldn't have been easier.

After this I installed the following applications:

Allow applications to elevate to super user rights

Allows "freezing" of bloatware (recommended instead of deleting the files so over the air, OTA, updates are not affected)
