Yes, you will need to root your phone (if not done already), and then install Koush's droid X bootstrap. Use the attached z4root file that I have attached and install this on your phone and use the permanent root option. Then install the Droid X bootstrapper. When the app is installed, open it from the application drawer and click the top button (this hijacks the boot process, and a "success" button will come up). Then click the bottom button (reboot recovery) and it will reboot your phone into the bootstrap recovery menu.
Once in green and black recovery menu, use the volume up/down buttons to navigate the green highlighted line and then use the camera button to make your selection. You can also use the back arrow button on the phone to go up a level on the menu. Scroll down to backup/restore, then choose the backup option. This will take roughly 5-12 minutes depending on how much data you have on your phone (apps, etc). When it is finished use the back arrow button to return to the main menu and choose "reboot system now" option.
If you ever need to restore your backup, just reboot to bootstrap again through the application and use the restore option.
