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
https://market.android.com/details?i...fou.android.su

Allows "freezing" of bloatware (recommended instead of deleting the files so over the air, OTA, updates are not affected)
https://market.android.com/details?id=com.bloatfreezer

Titanium Backup also allows freezing of apps, but I think you would need to DL BusyBox as well as SU.

Titanium back installs Busybox for you after you root. I am getting mine today and it will be rooted within 15 minutes

Re: How to root the Droid X2?

Have either of you (or anyone else) used Titanium Backup? I would like to backup my email settings (both gmail and an imap account). On windows mobile I was able to create a cab (android equivalent of an apk file) which I would install and it would restore my email settings.

Re: How to root the Droid X2?

I purchased Titanium Backup Pro, and i use it. It was able to remove all the Verizon bloat safely after backing it up. It automatically backs up contacts, mail, and more. I like it and it is useful. You must have a rooted device however.

I don't need to backup contacts or mail, just the settings for email (everything else I need will come from those settings, ie server, username, password etc). Can it do that?
