    Rooting and installing a ROM without a computer

    HI all i am new to the whole rooting and rom thing. I have a insurance replacement dx and would like to try rooting and installing liberty or cryogen(i know i probably murdered the spelling) but i don't have a pc. i know i can use z4root to root the device but im not sure what benefits that alone will give. Any information would be a great help. Thanks

    Once rooted, there are several ways to install a rom directly from your phone. You can use rom manager, or just download the rom from the droid forums app. Do some more research though as I'm not to familiar with the DX.

    Go grab dx bootstrap..and rom manager..push the flash clockwork mod recovery button and it will ask what kind of phone hit droid x then you can also get to recovery by hitting bootstrap then it will say ok success then hit rebbot recovery... just use rom manager or keep looking here in the forums as they installs are everywhere! And simple.. first thing you need to do after flashing clockwork is back rom..and then reboot and you'll be ready!:-)

    First off, are you on Android 2.2 (Froyo) or 2.3 (Gingerbread)? If you are on Gingerbread you will need to SBC back to Froyo using a computer.

    Usually I know my way around Flashing (BTW sorry if I'm hijacking this thread) Motorola Droid phones. I've had a Droid X (and X2 and D2 and Droid) I too had to get a Droid X replacement (had a X2 and a HTC Inc 2 before. X2 is a TOTAL POS! Inc 2 can't be rooted and it too can't compare to the OG X.) Anyway.. The last X I had got wet stopped working. I had it running .596 stock rooted. The X I got is already running 2.3.3. I assume all I need to do is SBF back to 2.2 then I can install CM7 from there? I've never gotten a Droid X with 2.3.3 already pre loaded.
