I want to root my Droid X2 and am scared to death I am going to mess it up or permanently damage my phone. Can someone please give me simple step by step instructions that even a dummy like me can follow and understand?

Hey there.

Rest assured that very little, if anything can go wrong when rooting the X2. Its darn near unbrickable.

What system version are you on? Go to settings - about phone.

If on 2.3.5 check my signature for "how to root 2.3.5." There are many ways but the easiest is the self extracting batch file. You download it, double click to open it and follow the step by step on screen instructions.
