Droid X Now Has 1-Click Root Method

It just doesn’t get any easier than this. Hey, most of us want rooted phones. Personally, I have have used screenshot apps, CPU regulators, and a wifi tethering app (my wife was very thankful that I could help her iPod Touch get online when there was no wifi) on my phone, all because I have root access. If you’ve followed the launches of Android phones, you’ve seen that, usually within a week or two after launch, a phone gets rooted. But sometimes that not a very easy process, like with the Droid X. Well, until now.

Those guys over at Alldroid have built a very simple one-click program to root (or un-root, if you so desire) your Droid X. Plug it in, open program, click — you have root.

Keep in mind, root gives you unrestricted access to your phone. You, or malicious apps, could really break stuff. But mostly, as long as you’re careful, you’ll be okay with a rooted phone.

So, if you’re a Droid X user who was scared of the rather lengthy process involved in rooting your phone, well fear no more. Head over to droid-life via the source link and download the file…just be careful. With great power, comes great responsibility.

    Wait … you’re telling me I wasted about an hour this morning typing in all that code from the keyboard on my phone … just to get an app that does it FOR me? I was JUST wondering why it hadn’t been done yet ;)
