    Excellent instructions. Rom manager carries the clowork recovery. Droid x boot strapper is a seperate app. Download both of them. But first install the boot strapper and then instal clockwork recovery.

    I'm somewhat in the same boat. Rooting and the concept of it came quite easy but I'd like the Black Glass theme. I just don't see any clear cut, step by step instructions. I even THOROUGHLY read 928's thread on the theme for the DROID X. Guess I'll just wait until I find step by step instructions or someone who can apply the theme to my phone for me.
    1.Download and install Droid X Bootstrapper. Click bootstrap Recovery
    2.Download Rom Manager and Flash Clockwork Recovery Mod.
    3.Use Rom Manager to "Backup Current Rom"
    4.Download the 928DroidX theme (Deodexxer version if you haven't done anything else to your phone)
    5.Use Rom manager to "Install Rom from SD Card" - choose 928.
    6. Wait for first boot. and you are now themed and deodexed and you will have a backup to go back to rooted stock.
    7. I would suggest making another ROM backup after you are themed and Deodexed as well, for that warm and fuzzy feeling.

    That's about as basic install instructions as you are gonna see on this thread. If you still need more info on getting that far, just keep searching and reading forums. I spent two weeks just making sure I knew what and how to do Rooting. So I can surely Empathize.

    As far as safety and OTA issues.... No one can say for sure really if Verizon pushes another Froyo update that Rooted users will be able to just jump right on without going back to stock. Or any other steps.

    But that is the Risk vs Reward that we take with Rooting our devices.

    I have faith in the community that someone will release that sbf as soon as they can. Until then, I am really not worried about what Verizon will do since this theme and the FlyX Rom have made my phone so much better than what Verizon gave us to start with.

    Always do what you are comfortable with doing, but only after you have done that proper level of research and understand where you are and where you are headed.

    OK sorry for the Soap Box!
    Happy Trails.

    In Step 3, when you backup the current rom, is that the same as performing a system backup (in case there is a problem during deodexing or applying the theme)? Would you be able to use the backup (from Step 3) to fix your phone then?

    Yes. You will be able to revert to the state your phone was before applying any customs.

    One last question, the Droid X Bootstrapper in Step 1, is there a free version in the Market or is it a paid one? Don't have my phone with me right now to check.

    I loaded this theme just to get deodexed. Wasn't planning on keeping the Black Glass, but I love it!!! Really looks nice. Very well done :-)

    Maybe a stupid question but how do you get 928Droid's zip file (the DEODEXEERR-THEME.zip) onto the sd card? Do you have to use adb? If so would this command work:

    adb push 928DroidBlackGlassX-DroidX-OTA2315-DeOdexEERR-THEME.zip /sdcard/928DroidBlackGlassX-DroidX-OTA2315-DeOdexEERR-THEME.zip

    Or is there an another way?

    There are several different ways to download "Black Glass" to the sdcard. You can use a file manager to move it to the root of the sdcard. You can link you phone to your computer under usb mass storage and place it there using you computer, and i think you can use adb to do it. i have done the first 2 but had a reason to try adb to move. I only used it to manually root my phone.

    So, I'm new to Droid and just rooted and installed the Black glass ROM. Everything is working great for the most part, but the video camera keeps force closing everytime I try to use it. Anyone else getting that issue?

    Just tried my video camera and it is working fine. Been running this theme just since this morning though. So far no problems
