    Hello to all. I am an older DroidX owner, and though I've been reading and enjoying the forums for some time, I've come to the realazation that I just don't have the brains to safely perform some actions on my phones. So I'm hoping to find nearby person(s) or reliable address I can ship my phone to for guranteed correct service. Thanx to all of you for your very valuable input and hard work.

    Thank you for your very kind greeting and welcome to this forum. I'm hoping to talk with a member very well versed in the arts of programing for the Moto Droid X. I have spent days reading and downloading SBF, RSD, etc. But as I read the procedures and try to actually do the actions, things aren't there that should be, and downloaded programs seem to be slightly different then the poster quoted, and I can't afford to just buy another DroidX so I'm not going to try it on my own. I would like to find a known qualified programer in my, or near my area 44654 in Ohio, or, a trusted programer to ship it to so I can have my phone restored to a stock 2.1, so it will except the 2.2 OTA update. I am now running 2.1, with Easyroot, Launcher Pro, Rom Manager,Superuser,Titanium Backup,Terminal Emulator,Universal Androot, drocap2, busybox, root explorer, and Droidx bootstrap installed. I did not remove any bloatware that I remember. I have uninstalled Launcher Pro because I did not know if 2.2 would except it, I told the "root" programs to "unroot", I went into setup, and did a factory reset, and after all that, the 2.2 gets to about 30% unloading, stops and an exclamation mark shows up and it reboots to a "normal" stock looking 2.1 system, and an error message tells me the "update failed" What I want to do is update to the OTA 2.2, then, add root, launcher, etc whenever it becomes available for 2.2 Any one there to bail me out? Thanx. Ytsud......

    Click the Forum tab above. Scroll to the X section and you will see several sections. Post your question in the appropriate section and you will receive assistance.

    Currently, the folks that support the X are not on line. I will keep checking and ask that they reply to this thread. There is a sister site for the X Droid X Forum that may be of interest for you.
