Droid X and Droid 2 Get Root in Addition to Gingerbread

You remember a couple days ago when those fine folks at MyDroidWorld gave a leaked Gingerbread build to both the Motorola Droid X and the Motorola Droid 2? Well check it out, they didn't stop there, they went on to ROOT both of those builds, and now that root can be yours!

You're going to have to go through a similar process to what you did when you first grabbed Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread from these same fine folks, so this time it shouldn't seem like such a hassle if you'd never before done such a thing. Beware, even though these guys and gals know what they're doing, you should always take the utmost caution when doing some sweet hacks such as these. The process you go through to install either one of these builds can mess up your device real quick!

That said, head over to the thread called Droid 2 Gingerbread (2.3.3) - Release - PreRooted for the Droid 2 release, or head straight to the thread called Droid X Gingerbread (2.3.3) - Release - PreRooted for the build on Droid X. Let us know how it goes!

    Christopher…if you are a noob then purhapse you shouldnt try such feats as using RSD and wait for the “one click” method to arrive. Replace your X and you say boo? If that was the case Im sure the waaaambulance was called. Im no expert but far from a novice and had my X done in 45min and my wifes X in 30min. Know what you are doing before you start or be able to follow directions and you will be rooting with Gingerbread in no time!
