Yeah, I posted this in another thread. Pretty unhappy about this, but I don't know if it's enough to drive me to another phone (probably the Fascinate).

Ugh......do I cancel my Droid X Best Buy pre-order and wait for something else, being impatient all the time, or just go with it and forget about root/ROMs...



Decisions, decisions.

Custom ROMs and recovery images may be a pipe dream, unless a serious vulnerability is discovered.

Right, but root still looks to be a long ways off, (he just estimated 4 months) though obviously nobody knows for sure.

the bright side to this is, with it having the same type of encryption as the MileStone devs have had 7 months to figure out what does and doesn't work.

better this than some crazy even more complicated encryption.
