Although Motorola’s implementation of eFuse security software prevents unauthorized ROMs from running on the device, the Motorola Droid X has been rooted. Right now, though, this will allow rooted Droid X owners more control of their device, but not install custom ROMs–no early Froyo yet–though that hack is in the process.
Rooted owners can remove pre-installed software on their device to preserve space and RAM if they don’t need it, and allow an app for WiFi tethering to circumvent Verizon Wireless’s Mobile Hotspot app. Of course, with Droid X users using more data than other devices on Verizon’s lineup, you should probably watch the unauthorized tethering if you decide to go that route.
Also, it is been advised that you do not remove the Motorola Backup Assistant app, as doing so may brick your Droid X.
If you’re interested, you should proceed with caution and head on over to AllDroid for the complete info.
