Motorola's DROID X has achieved rooted status
With all the fuss recently about the Motorola DROID X MB810 using an e-Fuse chip and having an encrypted bootloader, it appeared that Customs ROMs would not be possible. Now there appears to be a glimmer of hope, as Birdman over at Alldroid.org has successfully rooted the DROID X. In doing so, you are able to remove the bloat-ware that is installed on the device (such as the Blockbuster app), enable Wi-Fi tethering, and can even change the processor speed by downloading the SetCPU app. Needless to say, rooting the DROID X is a step in the right direction, now all we have to do is wait for the encrypted bootloader to be cracked and for some custom ROMs to come out. Be sure to check out the source link below for directions, and there's even a video covering the process. Just remember if you brick your phone, you'll have to get it replaced.
