    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.

    There is a newly updated .621 SBF file over at xda developers. It will flash you back to stock .621 if needed

    Man, I hope someone is working on this. I'd really like to be able to root 621. If I were any good at programming/hacking, I'd take a stab at it myself.

    You can not SBF back, that is the problem. If you try it will brick the phone untill you resend the .631 sbf.
    Then you are right back were you started.

    yes the .621 is possable to root. and its really not that hard. use this linux disk(it will also root you) then you can flash any gb rom or 2init rom

    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?

    how does this work using osx? and How does a Newb institute the rom into his droid x without bricking it?

    burn iso image to cd with imgburn ,
    or flash drive use UNetBootin for Windows

    basically read onscreen directions

    Reboot PC
    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

    select DX
    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

    press continue
    adb will push
    data/local.prop /data/preinstall_md5/magic.md5
    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
