Android Root - Droid X

I have a motorola droid x. Ive been thinking about rooting it however I know that the eFuse switch prevents unsigned code from being executed. If this is true why are there so many websites claiming that you can root a Droid X:http://www.androidcentral.com/droid-x-root-achieved sure has there? Am I just missing something or wouldn't this just brick your phone?

I know practically nothing about Android or any "Droid" phones, since I don't own one.

But, Im fairly sure the "efuse" is just a preventitive measure, that won't brick your phone, but will restore it to factory settings. I might be wrong on this one, but I think I remember reading that.

Thanks, I think ima hold of on it until I get more confirmation. I think its pretty shitty they would implement this even if it is part of the CPU architecture.

I can see why they do if from a corporate and legal standpoint, but it's also somewhat pathetic that this is what has become the norm, based more or less off how our society acts as a whole.
