    Ok so i have a Dx and have done all the rooting and romming and such. Well tonight i dropped the Dx and the touvh screen doesnt work. Call verizon and they dont have any in stock so they are sending out an X2. What im wondering is will my apps (go launcher, Lite flow, green power ect) work on an X2. Will all my stuff on the SD card be read by the x2 or will it all look like jibberish. Also wondering if the x2 is better given it has a dual core proc. and better pixels and such.

    Last thing. Im a root and rom addict. Does the x2 run the same platforms as the x meaning .605, .621 GB or is it a whole nother arena and if so am i able to root and rom this thing.

    Any good or bad thoughts on the x2 and what you can and cant do and hate about it are welcome. Looking to see what i got myself into.

    Thanks, Jeff

    The DX and DX2 are virtually the same phone aside from the pentile screen and dual core. Everything will work with both phones.

    Current Phone Model:
    Droid 4 (XT894)
    Different system versions, different kernel
    Most likely come with 2.3.5/1.3.418
    Which is not directly rootable, if you want to root, you have to flash 2.3.4/1.3.380 sbf

    edit: really only two stable rom choices eclipse and cm7
    cm9 is still alpha, but pretty good

    I've had the x2 for over a year now. O haven't had any serious problems with it. I'm rooted with cm7, I used stock x2 up till 2 months ago when I got new phone Jones

    I was looking up a couple posts on rooting the phone. 1. Would it be better being on a rooted 2.3.4 or 2.3.5. Also i found this post [How to] Root 2.3.5/1.3.418 anf this video... . Are these good ways on rooting the x2. Also i was looking up roms. I see themib said eclipse and cm7 are the only stable roms.
    Are any of these roms any good..?

    most of those roms you need to be on 2.3.4 stock
    eclipse 2.2.1 you need to be on 2.3.5/1.3.418
    most of those roms haven't been updated in while,
    and some are incomplete, because the dev moved on to a different phone

    I like Eclipse as well, but I had one major issue with it: bootlooping after clearing the Dalvik-cache (I mess with the optimize/verify settings a lot). So, I went back to stock rooted, ZipAligned all of my apps, and did some SQLite database cleaning (the scripts are part of V6 Supercharger, which make that easy). I've also modified my touchpad.cfg to accept 10 touches, though 5 is the usable maximum. I also did a few modifications to increase accuracy and sensitivity, which I'm still testing.

    (DO NOT edit the touchpad.cfg with ES File Explorer as it converts the file to another text type and will render the touchscreen unresponsive; I don't know how many times I had to manually push a backup of touchpad.cfg to the phone via the ADB shell; instead, use Jota Text Editor and copy it with ES File Explorer [or by using shell commands]).
