Well, lucky you I guess. But to answer your question, you can try to do it (at your own risk) using the 2.1 method since nobody has had the chance to test it out on 2.2 since nobody has it yet.
You have a couple options but again, do this at your own risk.
Here's a video of a guy doing it with a Mac.
and you can also do it on the device with the terminal emulator
How to root [Without ADB] - Android Forums
if you do decide to do it and you're successful, you should use a screenshot application and show off your rooted 2.2 X. I'd be very interested to see that since all of the 2.2 Droid X screenshots have looked photoshopped.

If you don't mind me asking, how did you get this phone? Did you buy it from eBay or something?
Also, it would be cool if you could try to get us some clean screen shots since the video is a little blurry (not complaining ) or post the details of the about screen.

Flash videos were either slow and choppy or fast and fluid - it really depended on the site. CNN had choppy videos while MSN's were very smooth - almost desktop like. The flash plugin usually alerted me to videos that weren't mobile friendly though. And even though CNN's were choppy, they were definitely good enough to be viewed regardless.
Battery life did suffer a bit, but not that much and should really be expected. Of course it depends totally on how much flash you're viewing. I know I'm prepared to get a second battery or an extended because I will be using it a lot.
IMO, flash even with all its issues was a great, almost necessary addition to the browsing experience. And I really miss it on the X. So Froyo can't come soon enough. For those who don't think they need it all I have to say is: once you go flash they ain't no going back!

If he does come back in here and starts fulfilling requests and does a more thorough review, just keep in mind that it did seem like an early, unpolished developer version of Froyo so results with his may (and probably will) vary from what is eventually released to the public in a couple weeks (hopefully).

I'll be able to benchmark later tonight. Flash runs well in the browser. Vimeo, YouTube, etc work like they would on a desktop browser. A lot less buggy than the videos I saw from Adobe's reviews.you won't be disappointed. I'll definitely post another video and answer some q's when I get home later tonight.
