Ok well one more questions while i have everyones attn, I see a few roms that seems to be on 2.3.340. Whats the best vanilla android custom rom to run and are there any gotchas i should know about?
My wife is running Fission 1.2 and she loves it, i would like something on the latest version of android.
Ok guys thanks for all the info, i went and picked up the X but the first one i got had the screen problem. Where the screen was unresponsive about 40% of the time. I played with it for a couple hours and nothing fixed it. I wiped, updated, cleared cache everything i could think of then i found out via moto forums that it was a known issue, so i took it back to VZW and then picked up the new one.
It came stock with 2.2. I z4rooted(man thats way easier then ADB commands.) Then in installed Fission 2.4. Found out that there are issues with 2.4 unless you do the OTA update first, so then i had to find the SBF and reload it. Finally got that all taken care of and got Fission 2.4.2 installed and working great. The FRM (Fission Rom Manager) is pretty nice, i was able to resolve my second concern with their 3g hotspot patch. All in all it was a fun weekend :-).
I have installed the overclocker app simply named Droid Overclock and it has a nice interface and seems to work well. Im using the medium voltage 1.3 Ghz OC profile. Its getting kinda warm and im a little worried. i got up to 116F. Whats the safe zone with the X? I have put it in LV 1.3 Ghz profile until i figure out what the safe zone is.
Please advise :-)
1. Best Vanilla ROM? - GummyJAR, Fission has had too many issues for my liking and so far everyone (including my self) have switched to GummyJAR and would never look at a post of Fission again.
2. Overclock? - Each phone is different, sometimes you can't go with an automatic OC Profile, especially if you want to run your phone at 1.3GHz, you may have to mess around with the voltages a bit to get it to run right and stable.
My PERSONAL safe zone is 1.25GHz (Custom Voltages ofc.) and has been for about 2 weeks.
If your interested I can post my Custom Profile. Maybe this can help you out in finding your own safe zone!
EDIT - And since your already rooted, go to the Market and pick up a free copy of WiFi Tether, you can tether for free, and its wireless. ( I use it all the time, and I absolutely love it.)
