ok im doing this for a friend atm and im not new to rooting and custom roms and such now my friend has a droid x sitting with the new update .621 and tells me she wants to be rooted maybe a custom rom however i can not seem to find anything for .621 other then dont update caz u will be stuck on it and cant downgrade at least from what i have read so in short i new .621 to be rooted at least and it dont matter if she has to go back down to 602 to do it she wont put 605 back on due to a issue with rebooting any help would be nice
There is no current root method for .621 yet. If you updated to .621, current previous firmware .sbf's(.602) will not work and WILL brick your phone.
If the individual in question is on stock un-rooted .621, youre going to have to leave it there until further developments are made. The latest devs on the .621 .sbf still have work to do to make it easy for less experienced users to work it.
I'm starting to think that I will never be able to have a rooted Droid X again. Usually someone finds a way to root right away. What's going on? I just want a stock .621, rooted. I would rather not use a custom rom. Am I asking too much?
burn iso image to cd with imgburn ,
or flash drive use UNetBootin for Windows
basically read onscreen directions
Hit F12 (sometimes F8 or esc) during boot to go to boot menu
Select drive image is on
wait for yellow "boot baby... boot" screen
You will see yellow dots for 3-5 minutes then the script will start
don't use numbers on right side of you keyboard, just use the ones above qwerty
turn phone on, connect to pc with usb cable
check usb debugging (settings/apps/development)
select charge only usb mode
adb will push
reboot phone to bootloader (Hold volume up+down buttons and power button, or hold Vol.Down and Camera and wait for the screen to flash)
repacked sbf will be flashed (less than 50mb)
phone will, reboot twice, very important (reboot just replaces the local.prop, but the old local.prop is still in memory, till second reboot)
adb pushes su,superuser, and busybox
reboot to recovery, wipe cache (should auto reboot to recovery, at android andy press both volume buttons, if it doesn't press home button and hold it in then press your power button, hold it in also till you see a triangle on the screen w/ android andy then press both volume buttons)
then select reboot
