    Well, that sucks. I kinda figured that. There's still the Windows one click method if you wanted to try that but I heard it was a little buggy and they're charging like $10 or $20 for it now.

    The long process isn't all that bad and even doing it via the Terminal Emulator app was real easy.

    Yeah, I can see it in mine too but his problem (problem?) is that he has an early developer's Froyo build.

    Will unroot work with this app if I rooted it in a different way?
    I rooted the day it came out, but would like to unroot with the easy button if necessary.

    I would think since it has to be using the same exploit, that unroot would work. But I would email the dev to be sure.

    This is true. I just checked it this morning and it was still there so it must have just happened within the last few hours.

    Good thing I scooped it up.

    It worked fine for me. I got it just to test it out pretty much. I've rooted and unrooted every other possible way so I wanted to try this out. I don't know about it being back since it looks like the reason it was pulled was because they used droidmod's method and tried to profit off of it so we'll see how that goes.

    I haven't tried to unroot with the application yet though but it does have the option.

    Sooo...I've been keeping up with the thread but I am going to put all my questions into one post:

    This works on the Droid X with non-rooted 2.1, correct?

    After hitting the "Root" button, I will not lose ANY data or anything like that, right?

    Once rooted, the only thing the X can really do is wireless tether and remove bloatware?

    How can I unroot? Through the same application?

    Thanks!!

    Once rooted, the only thing the X can really do is wireless tether and remove bloatware? Yes, and run "root-only" applications. But I am NOT removing any bloat yet. I did and had to reinstall and assign them as "system apps" so that I'll be able to update when the time comes. Also, if (when) the bootloader is cracked, you'll be able to load custom ROMs.

    How can I unroot? Through the same application? There is an option for that but I haven't tried it yet. But I have unrooted the X before using the ADB method and it went fine for me.

    BTW, I'm sure you saw it but the application was pulled from the market.

    No problem, don't forget that there's always this "one click method" if you have a Windows PC.

    Yeah, I have a Windows PC lying around, but it runs XP and I don't know how to do the special driver install or whatever it is.

    I downloaded it but haven't got my code from my market purchase yet but as soon as I get it (hopefully tonight or tomorrow) I'll let you know for sure. I imagine that it's the same version but you never know.

    Got my key and downloaded the latest from the dev. Latest version apparently adds some additional device support.

    I purchased Easy Root. This is what it did for me. It made the battery and antenna area of the phone get really hot. I was also unable to connect to wi-fi. So unrooted and emailed the dev..

    I purchased the key after the app was removed from Market. Install was a breeze and I'm happily rooted. See my other thread, LINK , for a walk-through.

    I'm still using the orignal version. Seems to work fine. Set up the WIFI tether yesterday and it seems to work well. Tested it on both laptops and my Ipod touch. WIFI showed up on all of them.
