That was quick! The Motorola Droid X has been officially rooted after a week on the market. The crafty minds over at AllDroid – headed by Stephen Bird – have taken the beast that is the Droid X and made it its — well, you get the idea. Full root is capable here with a read/write ‘System’ mount and everything else that normally comes with a fully rooted Android device (super user, full access through the shell, etc).

This does not enable any ROM flashing, though: this is just root. Being able to install custom ROMs through an unencrypted recovery and bootloader is an entirely different beast in and of itself, but you already knew that. Root is still very useful for many things (such as WiFi tethering, having the ability to take screenshots, and more) so make your way to AllDroid now for full instructions and download links if you want to give it a shot.
