    Ready To Take The Plunge!!

    I've had my DX for about a month now. Been doin alot of reading and I'm ready to customize it and make it my own. Just a quick couple of questions so I know I have everything I need.

    Software:
    Z4Root
    DX and/or D2 Bootstrap (depends on ROM choice)
    ROM Manager
    Titanium Backup Pro
    Superuser
    340 SBF (just in case)
    None of these are the free ones. The devs work hard to give us quality pgms and they should be paid for what they do.
    ROM of choice-I haven't quite decided yet. I am looking at either a Liquid, Liberty, Zombiestomped, or the prerooted GB 595 (hear it's better than the 596). I may look at more or even try making my own, but we'll see (unless someone has a suggestion.....lol). I'll also be looking at OC and UV hacks, too.

    Sound like I have everything covered?

    I would stay away from rom manager while on the DX. There are many conflicts reported with this and the DX. Stick with CWM for all of your flashing needs.
    Otherwise all looks good

    Yeah, no to rom manager. Unless you're going to flash a gb rom, you can use dx bootstrap. Make sure the sbf is the full one. Superuser will be in your app drawer as soon as you root.
    I would personally learn how to sbf before rooting. I did, and i saved myself the freak out time. Watch a tutorial on youtube. I'll post the thread

    A GB ROM is a possibility, for that (rooted GB 595) is where I think the D2 bootstrap comes in. Bootstrap is CWM, right? If so I can still stay away from ROM Manager, correct?

    Also, what's your thoughts on Root Explorer?

    I also like liberty but I can't accept the black and yellow colors. Sacrilege for my fave team.

    Root explorer is a must have file manager. Its all i use. You won't mess up your phone as long as you follow the directions. Its really quite easy. And your phone will kick arse.
