    Thanks DD, I'm not a complete idiot more like a new newb. I've had my DX for 50 days and will soon venture into into the custom ROM rooted sphere.

    if you're on the recovery screen just press back button till you get to the main screen and click reboot system now, if you're stuck take the battery out and restart...

    Your video sure is helpful as I am a visual learner. Couple quick questions though.

    You skip the part about creating or adding a Gmail account I am guessing to just move the video along. Is there any reason why I shouldn't add my account when first rooting? I am starting fresh with a new phone this afternoon.

    I have added Z4root and Tit Backup to my SD card. The links to Bootstrap on Kousch (sp) site is not working. I am willing to donate or pay for it. Can I get that in market after I root or should I get it first then root? I also downloaded Tit backup to my old phone then moved it to the SD card. It doesn't seem to be appearing like yours does. Z4root is there but not Tit backup.

    Thanks for all your help. After 5 months I have decided to root. Tired off City ID and **** starting itself and draining my battery.
    Skipping the Google login is just if you are going to reload your apps. Depending on how you phone is set up Google will try and reload them for you. If you are JUST rooting your apps will still be there. Your Google account is already set up you just do not want to log in right away.

    Bootstrap should be on the market and here My Brain Hurts: Droid X Recovery (and Droid 2 too!)

    You need the Ti APK file download latest here Titanium Backup for Android ? Official Site

    Alright well I wasnt following the Zip file to find the APK file. So I just put the market on and downloaded it that way. Want to upgrade to PRO version but my Discovercard is not accepted.

    I dont think that I want to do any ROMs...yet. But I have to learn TiBackup now.
