When Motorola and Verizon released their latest bug fixer for the DROID X as build 4.5.621, they pissed off owners of the device for the 116th time in under 2 years (actually it’s probably more than that). I’m referring to the fact that all previous root methods are now blocked, leaving those that updated to the new firmware without the ability to root again and fully enjoy their “open” Android device the way it was meant to be enjoyed.
Well, in classic bird-flipping fashion, a root method has been discovered. Ready for it?
The steps involve flashing an SBF file that turns your phone into a Milestone X (the European variant of the DROID X), rooting that, and then taking control of your phone from there with a DROID X custom ROM. So again, you have to flash Milestone X .604 software onto your phone, root it, and then pick out a DROID X ROM that suits you best. It’s not pretty and as far as I can tell is not rooted .621, but it will give those that are stuck on .621 a chance to get off of it.
Cheers Brian and Joe!
