    Noob help. Step By Step SIMPLE instructions on how to Root with 2.3

    Ok, I've read the forum, search, read the terminology, and attempted to educate myself and do a crash course. Here's what I did a few months ago. I was running 2.2 and I rooted the phone using Z4Root. No issues. The only thing that I wanted to do was wireless tether.

    My phone (Droid X) upgraded to 2.3.3 OTA (Android Version), System Version (4.5.596.MB810) and of course i lost my root.

    I realize now that the current version of Z4Root will not work (1.3) and I was looking for a new version, or a new way that is JUST AS SIMPLE as using the Z4Root program.

    If I can re-install a program that is just as simple as Z4 let me know. And please let me know where I can find it. Remember the only thing I need is the WiFi Tether App to use.



    I want to keep it simple. I've read the following threads but they seem to be way too complicated.

    I am afraid it will not be that simple. The OTA has not been able to be rooted as of now. It will get complicated, as you have to SBF back to froyo, root froyo and install a 2 part zip file to upgrade to 2.3.3 pre-rooted. There are a lot of guides around to do it, but be advised that it is not for the inexperienced, as you are SBFing the device which can cause many problems if done wrong. That said, if you are comfortable, you could do the whole thing in about an hour if you don't have any problems.
