Re: 1-Click Droid X Root/UnRoot

Glad to see you didn't have to wait long to get your X! I just did this myself and am now successfully rooted.

Re: 1-Click Droid X Root/UnRoot

I am sure Big Red will fix this like Sprint did on update last month. Too easy to root.

Wow this looks awesome, and super easy. Will it work on both the Droid X and the Droid 2 when it comes out in a couple weeks?

I've always had a WinMo phone, and been with the Touch Pro 2 for about a year now, and always custom install ROMs like Mighty ROM etc, so I've never 'rooted' before. From what I understand, Rooting allows things that Verizon tried to disable, like wireless tethering to internet devices - but I thought the Droid X came with built in native 3G hotspot sharing?

Are there any other admin privileges rooting allows us to take advantage of, or a link where I can read up about it, since I'm 99.9% intent on upgrading to an Android phone in the next couple weeks? THANKS!

Re: 1-Click Droid X Root/UnRoot

3g hotspot did come on the phone, but it also comes with a $20 fee on top of your $30 data plan,

Rooting allows fee-less wifi tethering, screen shot apps, and a whole host of root only programs that are availble for use only by rooted devices.
