    I'm trying to root my Droid X2 which is currently running Gingerbread 2.3.5 but I keep getting an error saying read only filesystem. I have tried removing the sd card and flipping its write protection switch with no luck. Can anyone tell me how to fix this error? I am dual booting with Windows XP and Backtrack 5 so the OS is no issue. Thanks

    Isn't Backtrack another ROM? Wouldn't you have to be rooted to have done this?

    No sir, Backtrack is an operating system based on unix for penetration testers.

    I am currently trying to root a droidx2 running 2.3.5 and getting the same error message.
    How did you end up solving the problem?

    Yes. I, too, am stuck with not being able to root my newly-acquired 2.3.5 update. I've tried 6 different tools now and nothing is working. It always comes down to things like "permission denied" or "not enough free space on /system!!!" or "read-only file system" or the like. Nothing seems to work. Has anyone been able to successfully root the 2.3.5 update on an X2? Thanx.
