The Motorola Droid X was released on 15 July to the general public. After its launch, there was a lot of issue about its locked down bootloader and the eFuse technology used. The locked down bootloader meant that custom ROMs are a no go until someone manages to unlock the bootloader. However, six (seven for some countries) days after its launch the Droid X has been rooted.
The credit for rooting the Droid X goes to birdman. The steps to rooting the phone are pretty simple. Rooting will allow users to access applications which require root access like adfree, take screenshots etcetera. It will also allow users to remove the bloat ware that the phone comes pre-installed with.
Now the only thing left is to unlock that tricky bootloader. Hopefully, that should happen soon as well. Here are the steps to root your Droid X.
