Hello everyone. I've seen a lot of posts on modding and using ROMs and such. I just went through the process of updating to Gingerbread on my Droid X. When I say process, I mean it was an ordeal I don't wish to repeat anytime soon...I tried multiple times, around 6, to update by going to Settings>About Phone>System Updates, to no avail. It would always download the update, reboot, and stop the installation at about 1/4 of the way through. I was rooted with Z4Root and had Droid 2 Bootstrap running (Droid X Bootstrap wasn't available when I got my version), and I read system updates don't work with it running. I tried getting the rooted version of the .sbf that's floating around the internet, but the first part wouldn't install and my phone got stuck in a bootloop. I then had to completely wipe Android off my phone, download the original Droid X .sbf file from Google, and, using Ubuntu Linux, put it back on my phone, wiping out all my apps and data and such that doesn't sync with my Google account. Anyway, I'm starting to get everything back that I used to have, but I never really realized how much I HATE Motoblur, because I always used an alternative launcher. I'm trying to stick with stock for a little while because the performance is better, and I actually prefer the new Gingerbread keyboard over Better Keyboard 8.
ANYWAY...to the meat of the topic...as I stated, Motoblur is awful. It's ugly, doesn't feel like Android, and just all around awful. It's focused on social networking, which I don't do much of. I was wondering, since I was able to re-flash the original Droid X .sbf that came on the phone, would it be possible to run a different UI? Not a ROM, mind you...when I think of ROM I think of a modded version of the .sbf file. I'm talking like, if I could find the TouchWiz.sbf file, the one that comes on the Fascinate, or SenseUI somewhere online, the untouched, unmodded, completely stock version of the UI, would it be possible to put it on my Droid X and run it? Any advice/problems would be useful, so I'm open to any input besides "I don't know." Thanks!
