    (Run means type the command in quotes [but not the quotes] then press the Enter key)
    1.Download the attached archive and expand it to a folder you can find (eg. c:\devour_root)
    2.Set up ADB (You'll need to google this part)
    3.On the phone: Home, Menu Button, Settings, Applications, Development: Make sure the "USB debugging" option is enabled/checked.
    4.Status bar, USB connection: Make sure "PC Mode" is selected.
    5.Open a command prompt (Windows: Start, Run, "cmd", OK; Linux: Terminal)
    6.Run "adb devices". If you don't see your device listed under "List of devices attached", return to step 2 and follow the link to setup ADB (use that topic for support) and return here when "adb devices" lists your X.
    7.Run "CD c:\devour_root" (or where ever you expanded the archive)
    8.Run "adb push Superuser.apk /sdcard/Superuser.apk"
    9.Run "adb push su /sdcard/su"
    10.Run "adb push busybox /sdcard/busybox"
    11.Run "adb push exploid /sqlite_stmt_journals/exploid"
    12.Run "adb shell"
    13.Run "cd sqlite_stmt_journals"
    14.Run "chmod 755 exploid"
    15.On your phone, navigate to a screen where you can switch wifi/bluetooth on/off easily (settings, or a home screen with a widget)
    16.IMMEDIATELY after executing the next step, toggle wifi or bluetooth off and back on
    17.Run "./exploid" and follow directions on screen. Once this completes you'll be back at a shell prompt.
    18.Run "rootshell". You'll be prompted for a password.
    19.Type in password "secretlol" and press Enter then you are root! (You'll know because your prompt will now be a "#" instead of "$")
    20.Run "mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system"
    21.Run "busybox cp /sdcard/Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk"
    22.Run "busybox cp /sdcard/su /system/bin/su"
    23.Run "busybox cp /sdcard/busybox /system/bin/busybox"
    24.Run "chmod 4755 /system/bin/su"
    25.Run "chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox"
    26.Run "rm /system/bin/rootshell"
    27.Run "exit" to drop from root to a non-root user shell (on phone still)
    28.Run "exit" to drop back to your machine command prompt (instead of phone)

    To Confirm root is established:
    Run "adb shell"
    Run "su" (now you should see the # sign which indicates you are root)
    Watch your screen so you can allow Superuser root access.

    You're done! feel free to kill the bloat apps and such. (I haven't tested killing anything yet.)

    NOTE: It might be a smart idea to do "rm /system/bin/rootshell" after you have su and superuser in place as ANY program will have access to your root if you leave it (cause everyone will know the password)
    NOTE: If the 'busybox cp' commands do not work try
    "dd if=/sdcard/Superuser.apk of=/system/app/Superuser.apk"
    "dd if=/sdcard/su of=/system/bin/su"
    "dd if=/sdcard/busybox of=/system/bin/busybox"

    The edits:
    -added busybox in front of the cp commands
    -mounted the system read write
    -changed out Birdman's su and Superuser.apk to the ones from

    Credits:
    Birdman for rooting the Droid X
    ChainsDD for posting the su and Superuser.apk files.

    Credits (Original credits from )
    Sebastian Kramer for this blog post -
    Birdman - for editing Sebastians work for the droidx
    [mbm] - for answering birdmans many questions while root was tried (and failed xD)

    And of course if anything goes wrong and breaks it is no ones fault but your own. XD

    BTW: I've only tested this on my Devour. Your mileage may vary.
    Nice

    (Run means type the command in quotes [but not the quotes] then press the Enter key)
    1.Download the attached archive and expand it to a folder you can find (eg. c:\devour_root)
    2.Set up ADB (You'll need to google this part)
    3.On the phone: Home, Menu Button, Settings, Applications, Development: Make sure the "USB debugging" option is enabled/checked.
    4.Status bar, USB connection: Make sure "PC Mode" is selected.
    5.Open a command prompt (Windows: Start, Run, "cmd", OK; Linux: Terminal)
    6.Run "adb devices". If you don't see your device listed under "List of devices attached", return to step 2 and follow the link to setup ADB (use that topic for support) and return here when "adb devices" lists your X.
    7.Run "CD c:\devour_root" (or where ever you expanded the archive)
    8.Run "adb push Superuser.apk /sdcard/Superuser.apk"
    9.Run "adb push su /sdcard/su"
    10.Run "adb push busybox /sdcard/busybox"
    11.Run "adb push exploid /sqlite_stmt_journals/exploid"
    12.Run "adb shell"
    13.Run "cd sqlite_stmt_journals"
    14.Run "chmod 755 exploid"
    15.On your phone, navigate to a screen where you can switch wifi/bluetooth on/off easily (settings, or a home screen with a widget)
    16.IMMEDIATELY after executing the next step, toggle wifi or bluetooth off and back on
    17.Run "./exploid" and follow directions on screen. Once this completes you'll be back at a shell prompt.
    18.Run "rootshell". You'll be prompted for a password.
    19.Type in password "secretlol" and press Enter then you are root! (You'll know because your prompt will now be a "#" instead of "$")
    20.Run "mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system"
    21.Run "busybox cp /sdcard/Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk"
    22.Run "busybox cp /sdcard/su /system/bin/su"
    23.Run "busybox cp /sdcard/busybox /system/bin/busybox"
    24.Run "chmod 4755 /system/bin/su"
    25.Run "chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox"
    26.Run "rm /system/bin/rootshell"
    27.Run "exit" to drop from root to a non-root user shell (on phone still)
    28.Run "exit" to drop back to your machine command prompt (instead of phone)

    To Confirm root is established:
    Run "adb shell"
    Run "su" (now you should see the # sign which indicates you are root)
    Watch your screen so you can allow Superuser root access.

    You're done! feel free to kill the bloat apps and such. (I haven't tested killing anything yet.)

    NOTE: It might be a smart idea to do "rm /system/bin/rootshell" after you have su and superuser in place as ANY program will have access to your root if you leave it (cause everyone will know the password)
    NOTE: If the 'busybox cp' commands do not work try
    "dd if=/sdcard/Superuser.apk of=/system/app/Superuser.apk"
    "dd if=/sdcard/su of=/system/bin/su"
    "dd if=/sdcard/busybox of=/system/bin/busybox"

    -added busybox in front of the cp commands
    -mounted the system read write

    I cant get any of this done.. I downloaded and set up the adb.. But cant do anything with Adb in the c:/Devour_root, so someone said to move it, and I put it in tools.. still nothing.. Then I get to adb shell, and it says device not found.. (this is after running adb devices with my phone listed.. grr

    Default Re: We can have Devour root now. Instructions inside. XD

    I'm a bit lost, I go to run "adb push Superuser.apk /sdcard/Superuser.apk" and I get permission denied. My MicroSD is (apparently) labeled as BLACKBERRY, so I run "adb push Superuser.apk /BLACKBERRY/ " and I get "Read-only file system

    Any ideas?
