This is a GUI program to root/unroot your DroidX phone. No Android SDK install required. All drivers are installed if needed.
Just two buttons, ROOT and UNROOT! Follow the instructions on the screen and you'll be rooted in a matter of seconds!
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE USB DEBUGGING ENABLED UNDER System > Applications > Development ON YOUR PHONE!
EDIT: If it doesn't root and you are turning Bluetooth on and off, try turning WiFi on/off instead!
Microsoft Windows only. You need the .NET 3.5 Framework but Vista and Windows 7 already come with the framework.
YOU MUST EXTRACT ALL OF THE FOLDERS, ETC. THEN RUN! OTHERWISE IT WON'T WORK.
RIGHT CLICK AND RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR
Edit: Windows XP, Mac OSX and Ubuntu Linux Support Coming Soon
Edit: MediaFire link for those w/o an account. (edit by rainabba: we've opened downloads to guests!)
Edit: Still give props to Birdman and the rest of the community. This is simply putting their work (with some modifications to exploid) to use.
Edit: I am not responsible for anything that happens to your phone. Please use at your own risk.
At the moment, rootshell is left on the device for easy unrooting. It is modified so that only my program may use it, however, if someone does
figure out away around using rootshell, I am not held responsible. This feature will be replaced with using su in the next release!
Warning: Apparently if some /system/app .apks are missing when you try to update, the update will fail. Please do not remove /system/app .apk
unless you have backed your phone up (I made this mistake with the original root =[ haha). Next version will automatically backup for /system/app folder to your /sdcard/. I'll try to post a working backup folder for those who didn't back it up.
** Required for .604 update **
* Mobile 3G Hotspot
* Visual Voicemail
