    I'm very new to rooting and finally decided to root my droid x last night. I have downloaded titanium, cpu master, etc. I can not get any ROM I download to install on to my phone using ROM manager. I may be doing something wrong but I can't figure out what it is. I follow the directions and I don't wan to have to SBF back to Froyo. I would appreciate any help.

    When you boot into recover, does it take you to stock recovery or clockwork?

    It reboots just like normal back to the stock ROM no matter what ROM I download and try to install. I don't even see clockwork recovery it goes straight back to stock. I don't even see clockwork recovery when I try to install ROMs

    Yes I just tried that with genesis rom and nothing. Maybe roms are not compatible with gingerbread?

    I know this may be a dumb question but are you sure that you rooted? What method on gb did you use?

    I'm pretty sure it's rooted. I used DROID 3 easy root script 7 and CPU master, power saver, etc all flash messages stating they have superuser permissions. Would these apps work if I wasn't rooted?

    if it gives the message you are probably rooted. I've never heard of that method, probably because its new but I know that the motorola one click method works perfectly for it. There are a few custom roms for GB. Make sure you have flashed clockwork from ROM manager. I believe if i'm not mistaken that you would the regular Droid x flash. Not the 2nd int. I'm currently using miui ROM which runs on GB even though it is flashed through froyo and runs on a froyo kernel. Its the best room imo. But you would have to sbf back to 2.3.340.

    I just flashed clockworkmod and it said download successful. I really want miui or cyanogen but am too inexperienced to SBF back to Froyo. Is there a one click method to SBF? That's the only reason I felt comfortable rooting in the first place, it was a one click method. I don't want to break my phone.

    There is a 2.3.340 update.zip file though I haven't used it. A little helpful tip and something that has helped me out a lot is just searching on YouTube. They can show you step by step instructions and i'm a better learner from seeing rather than reading. Sbf'ing is not hard. Just search for Droid x 2.3.340 full sbf. I would post it but its not allowed. Google it. You'll find it.
