Default [Q] Help with rooting my HTC DX (going mad)

I have been trying for about a month now to root my HTC DX and have been successful in unlocking bootloader and installing a custom recovery (CWM) but when it comes to installing Superuser zip through CWM and rebooting the superuser app is present but when I verify with root checker it says 'Sorry! This device does not have proper root access.' I've read threads on the forums with people having the same problems and resolving them but it doesn't work for me . Can anyone help me please? It's driving me mad lol.

Try using TWRP if your device is not rooted before rebooting your phone from TWRP it will give you a msg "phone not rooted install superuser" just swipe to install and it might work...

That's normal because we can't update it from within Android due to S-ON...

Yes, I've tried with v1.80 but it still isn't rooted. I'm beginning to think I'll never get my DX rooted

If the @GtrCraft 's file doesn't work, just flash a custom ROM with root included (i.e. this ROM : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2330229)... and don't forget to make a nandroid backup before you flash anything.
