Droid X has been rooted

Without much difficulty, the Droid X has been rooted. Birdman has successfully done the previously unthinkable – rooting the e-fuse enabled handset. Although the whole e-fuse hoopla was about loading custom roms at the end of the day, rooting the Droid X is a great step towards the right direction.

Grab the needed exploit then follow these steps:

Step 1: Set up ADB
Step 2: Push exploid to /sqlite_stmt_journals “adb push exploid /sqlite_stmt_journals”
Step 3: type “adb shell”
Step 4: type “cd sqlite_stmt_journals”
Step 5: type “chmod 755 exploid”
Step 6: type “./exploid” and follow directions on screen
Step 7: type “rootshell”
Step 8: type in password “secretlol”
Step 9: your in root!
Step 10: mount your sdcard to pc and put Superuser.apk and su in the sdcard
Step 11: unmount sdcard
Step 12: in adb (make sure your still in root with the # sign) type in:
– cp /sdcard/Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk
– cp /sdcard/su /system/bin/su
– chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
