I am kinda sorta new to this ROMs stuff, I have been reading the chatter for a long time yet have never had or attempted to get a custom ROM for my X.
I am rooted on stock 4.5.602. There are no other modifications to the phone. Now as I understand the process to load up a custom ROM is
0) Put the ROM in /sdcard.
1) Take an app backup with TB.
2) Boot into droid2 bootstrap recovery.
3) Take a backup of the data partition.
4) Install the rom through bootstrap recovery.
5) wipe data/cache.
6) activate the phone and re-setup google accounts and such.
7) Restore Apps with TB.
At this point I should have a phone with all the apps that I previously had but none of the data. The step that I can't put into the process is restore the backed up data. Where and with what would I accomplish that?
Also I am looking for a stable gingerbread ROM to switch to and I was looking at Liberty GB. If there are any that work better than the Liberty GB or if there are any instabilities with it (other than very minor quirks as is the case with basically every ROM), I would like to know. If there is an AOSP ROM for the X, I would appreciate that the most. The overall look and feel of the VZ 4.5.602 ROM is very 'blue' and I want to move away from it. I would like to have the dark gray notification bar with the green icons if possible. The other concern is the battery hog that the Droid X is and I would like to have a ROM that might help with that but that is not that big of a concern right now. I would like to have something that looks good and is functional.
