So after researching around, I found out where it is and that it actually came from the Droid 2. So I grabbed my brother's Droid 2, and knowing that much of the software is similar, pulled the file off of it. I put it onto my X and BOOM, it worked. No problems at all.
    Very cool mod. Thank you. The only problem now -I have applied it but can't use it bc it turns my Gingerbread Keyboard into a midget. Jk jk. Just having a little fun with the gingerbread kb issue.

    thanks again. I will try and report back if I notice any wierdness.

    Maybe Fab will create and update.zip for us all to simplify it. Is there a certain step you need help with?

    4) Copy it into /system/framework/ which will replace the original file.
    5) Change the permissions to rw-r--r-- (you can chmod it to 644 in terminal or use root explorer, which is the easiest way).
    I've never really done anything like this before, but I'm guessing I find system/framework/ (PC Mode?) and past it into the folder and overwrite?

    And I don't really know how to use root explorer or anything like that at all.. would love to learn though

    if you know how to use adb you can mount system then adb push the file from a location on your computer (say C:\android.policy.jar) to /system/framework/, then chmod it to 644, then unmount system

    if this all sounds like gibberish to you, maybe someone can put it into an update.zip

    its simple, the only things you need to know is you can hold down your finger on a file to bring up a menu for it, and if it says you cant blahblahblah because the current directory is not rewritable, just make it rewritable by hitting the r/w button at the top
