    Problems installing ROMs

    I rooted my phone using Z4 because it seems to be the easiest way for me to do so. I paid the $5 for Rom manager and have downloaded a couple of ROMs from the rom manager. Problem is I cannot find them to even install them. Should I not use rom manager, or am I even doing this the right way?

    dont use ROM manager....it really isn't helpful for the DX...sorry you wasted your money.

    download droid x bootstrap.
    open it up
    select bootstrap recover
    grans SU access
    "success!" OK
    reboot recovery

    it will reboot into clockworkMod recovery (black screen with green text)
    use the up and down volume rocker to navigate and the camera button to select
    go to backup/restore
    backup
    yes
    your current system will be backed up
    reboot when finished

    now download some ROMs from your computer and move them to your phone (or straight from your phone) from these forums.

    open up bootstrap
    bootstrap recovery
    yes
    reboot recovery
    navigate to wipe data
    yes
    navigate to wipe cache
    yes
    navigate to install .zip from SD card
    choose .zip from sd card
    navigate to the location of your ROM .zip file (if DL-ing from phone it goes to the download folder with stock browser)
    select your .zip file
    select yes
    the rom will install
    use the power button (give it a tap to go up a menu) to get to the main menu of clockwork mod
    reboot phone
    let it work. may take 5 minutes to boot up. sign in, and enjoy

    it is also a good idea to backup your apps with titanium backup unless you dont care about your game/app data
