The developer known as mrweeeedbirdman over at Alldroid.org seems to be responsible for this feat and he mentioned in his Twitter page that he will put up a guide shortly for people to join into the legions of rooted Android devices. There isn’t an awful lot to flash onto the X yet, but expect to see something really soon.
