I've had my Droid X 2.2 for about two months now and had it customized as far as I could unrooted. All the while, I was compiling a list of features that I'd like that required root.
But still, I didn't have the time to go through the process and possibly debug and/or retest all my apps. (I had jailbroken an iPT3 and an iPad earlier this year and remembered the time required to address fallout).
But then yesterday, while reading tweets, I saw z4root mentioned. I immediately got interested, came to this forum and did a little reading.
I said what the heck, root. So I installed z4root from the App Market and 15 minutes later I had root. (It wouldve been 3-5mins but the 1st attempt was blocked by Lookout. Once i killed Lookout, the 2nd attempt was nearly immediate).
I've installed the apps from my "requires root" list and tested all.
Now I know why they say "A rooted Droid X is a happy Droid X".
