    How to flash ROM without losing apps

    My husband has a rooted Droid X and wants to flash a new ROM to it... He doesn't want to reset the phone and lose his apps... He has ROM Manager with ClockworkMod Recovery... He is not able to boot into clockwork recovery from power off... We have tried several different things and nothing seems to work... Please help!!!!!

    To do that... You need to get an app like titanium back up or my backup... That will back up apps/data/contacts/texts/call log and everything

    bootstrap is a paid app...
    did you get droid x bootstrap?
    if so you need to go to settings/applications/development/ and uncheck debugging

    Make sure you hit bootstrap recovery then hit reboot recovery. I have a DX but I use Droid 2 bootstrap with no problems...I think DX bootstrap only works on android 2.2 but I could be mistaken
