    Look for the Superuser apk after getting your ROM or once youve rooted your stock device:

    Grab Terminal Emulator from the Market
    Open it and type su
    if you get this...# youre rooted(#=superuser)

    how do you find out if it took. is there a new icon or what?
    Easiest way is to try and use an application that requires Root. If it works, you are gold.

    Does this work on the .605 Gingerbread? If not, can I sbf back to .602 from .605?

    Edit: I read on a different thread that it should, so I will be giving it a whirl tonight then.

    Edit 2: Worked like a charm!

    .621 is not rootable for the moment. You cannot SBF back to an earlier release. You're stuck unfortunately until somebody finds a way to root .621. Sorry

    Droid X ver. 2.3

    I ran the program but after reboot on set 2 I got the message:

    cannot create /data/local.prop: permission denied

    I followed all instructions and activated USB debugging what else do I need to do?

    I've tried different links, multiple times, nothing works, some say "success" and still no Superuser on the phone. Others show error messages, but still aren't helpful. I am very VERY new to this whole rooting thing, but had no problem rooting Droid Razr, but cannot root my Droid X for the life of me. This is the latest that I tried and the message received:
    cannot create /data/local.prop: permission denied
    failed to copy 'busybox', 'su', 'superuser.apk' to /system
    Unable to chmod /system...
    Please help!

    Is there anywhere else to get Droid 3 easy root script v7? The page it is linked to says the file is unavailable due to TOS violation. Going to head over to XDA but thought I'd ask. Thanks

    So... Is rooting the DX end-of-life'd? .621 has been out fot MONTHS without being rooted, whereas, for example, iOS 6 beta was out for mere days before being jailbroke.

    Just pulled the old Droid X out of the drawer hoping to give it some CM7 love since I am more comfortable rooting than I was when it was my DD and I find that Verizon has screwed me again.

    I hope that a non-Linux method becomes available but it's not looking too promising. I am so glad I went with the Galaxy Nexus after the X and will never go to a non-Nexus phone again.

    For those of you stuck on .621 head on over to RootzWiki for the root method. It's a Linux LiveCD/FlashDrive so you don't have to do anything permanent to your computer.

    Thanks for the idea of heading over there. Rooting noob but the method was easy as easy can be. Now I'm rooted and need to look for some roms to flash.

    I signed up here so I could get the links and follow these steps to root my phone but all the root files have been removed. I do have the 621 though and not 602. So maybe it would have messed my phone up if I tried it.

    Okay, Hey guys.

    I'm gonna bomb an evening and say i have no clue wth I'm doing here, with this phone, right now.

    My thoughts were, root? I got this. Now I'm like, everything outdated or i can't understand it.

    I factory reset my Droidx 2.3.3 just now, I'm trying to install a simple root for screenshots etc, small things. Or increased battery life, as mine lasts about 5 hours. Can anyone speak english to me for a few minutes? Either so or Add me on facebook and help me out? Or this, it's whatever floats the boat of the android community. Help will be highly appreciated at this point. Thankyou guys c:

    Edit: I won't be on this site, for i only have Facebook messenger on my phone since the factory reset. If anyone can help, Send me a message at mah facebook. (Email being) 'degenerousrose@hotmail.com' or just send me an email there.
