    Dying to use 928Droid's epic Black Glass theme, but I have some questions

    Hey all.

    I am rooted and bloatware .bak'd, but that is it. I am dying to utilize 928Droid's Black Glass theme, but I have some safety questions.


    1. Without the true 2.2 .SBF, is it "safe" to install the clockworkmod or SBRecovery?
    2. If it is "safe" to do, is it "easy" to remove in case of OTA update to fix the froyo issues without the true 2.2 sbf?
    3. Do I need to install the above just to add a theme?


    Thanks for all the help!

    I believe it is safe due to themes only messing with system files and the TBH sfb fixes system files. I have done it with no issues thus far. A matter of fact the TBH sbf fixed my Droid eye boot loop after the OTA. Just make sure you are rooted and deodexed, but I believe his theme deodexes for you.

    Thanks for the reply!

    Do you have SBRecovery or Clockworkmod on installed?
    If clockworkmod, did you install it with RSDLite or ROMManager?

    No disrespect to anyone or any application, but I am thinking I should learn the RSDlite method first, is this a valid thought?

    I installed with Rom manager. If you want to learn RSDlite method then great, however I like for these things to be done for me by apps. Just takes out the middle man and saves Time IMHO.

    I am running the OTA update with tranquility, 928Droids black glass. I chose to do everything manually eXcept the bootstrapper. I have had 0 issues. I am actually quite happy with my phone now. I was glad to get rid of blur and all the bloatware.

    Agreed,
    I loaded this theme yesterday and used the DEoDEXXER version. it went without a hitch, looks great and my X is that much faster for it.
    It trully is what the X should have been.

    I used Rom manager and Clockwork recovery for everything, nice and smooth.

    Well, I got it installed, but I had issues. lol Not 928Droid issues, but something funky happened.

    1. I don't know what happened, but I purchased the Droid X Recovery from the market, was successful installing the bootstrap, went to boot to recovery to make a nandroid backup and boot looped at the eye!

    2. no idea yet as I haven't had to do it yet

    3. See below.

    Ok so I boot looped, here is my message for help in another section:
    I pulled down Droid X Recovery Mod from the marketplace and installed it fine. I have OTA 2.2, rooted via sdb

    Pulled it up and it asked for Superuser access, I granted.

    Tapped “Bootstrap Recovery.”
    Got “Success!” and tapped OK and hit “Reboot Recovery.”

    Now it only loops at the droid splash screen.

    Is there any hope?

    I can battery pull and get to the regular recovery screen.

    I can get RSDlite to see phone in bootloader 30.03 mode(camera/volume down boot). Is my only recourse to flash the TBH released .13?

    I have bloatware renamed, am I capable of doing the "wipe data /factory reset" to get any further?
    Didn't get any responses, so I forged ahead.

    ok. so here is my recovery.

    Booted into stock recovery mode and wipe data/factory reset a couple times to no avail.
    Booted into Bootloader 30.03 and used RSDLite 4.8 and TBH's 2.3.13 sbf - This got me back into the phone!
    Rooted phone
    Applied Droid X Recovery from Market
    Applied RomManager premium from Market
    Successfully booted into clockwork recovery
    reboot
    Applied 928Droid's BacktoStock2.3.15
    Applied 928Droid's blackGlass Deodeeer(spelling)

    Currently reinstalling and adjusting my junk. lol


    Thanks to 928Droid and Team Black Hat for the sbf and cool apps to help me out!
