    I've read about all the improvements a rom can give to the appearance of a phone but are there any roms that can improve performance?

    I think you may have things mixed up a bit

    ROM is a performance enhancer

    if you want to change or improve the appearance then thats a THEME

    lol well, what are you looking to get out of your phone?

    If you want a performance "upgrade" then there are alot of awesome ROMS out for the DX, it really depends what your looking for

    my favorite the the Rubix 1.8 ROM, super fast and outstanding battery life

    feel free to ask anything

    All roms add performance but some times that performance is not noticed because it is internal. Aka kernels if you don't know what to look for then you may not notice the difference.

    Which is less likely to cause problems to my phone a theme or rom? I'm trying to take it slow and steady. Also, is there a guide to installing themes and roms? All help is appreciated. Thanks

    Usually there are instructions on how to load/install a rom or theme on your phone which the developers put on the page before the download

    some roms do not like certain phones, the best thing you can do is make a back up of your current set up before loading a ROM that way if there is a problem you can just flash back to your previous set up and everything is ok.

    Installation instructions are usually on the ROms dedicated thread, on the first page

    check out the droid x ROM section

    Absolute Must is a backup before you do anything.

    Only after that do I suggest making any type or rom or theme change. However, I do massively suggest Apex's Rom for its UI improvements, performance and stability. Plus that fact that I am more a minimalist this fits well. I am overclocked to 1.2ghz and it's running the smoothest it's ever been with stock Moto Blur.
