    I was wondering if there is any other way to flash cm7 on the dx without sbfing all the way back to .340? I am on rooted .605 at the moment, suggestions?

    get rom toolbox from market, go to rom manager, go to revnumbers nightlies, and get one

    in my experience i get the zip out of the folder instead of flashing from rom toolbox and put the zip on root of sd

    this or use ROM manager, I think the RevNumbers builds off the GB kernel are better than the nightlies

    the newest build in ROM manager is 9/28/2011 I believe, I ran it for a few days and loved it but the battery life left something to be desired. The battery life on Shuji was the best I've ever gotten, I'm waiting for Shuji 2.2 to download right now

    Yes I got the best I ever got on battery yesterday 15 hours off charger with 20% left, if I would ever quit flashing roms I might keep it consistant but its an addiction, I am having trouble getting .340 froyo full sbf to take for soon reason I am wanting to try some of those roms plus I'd like to utilize the boot manager app

    I know exactly what you mean! I'll flash a ROM, keep it for a few days, think to myself "I love this ROM! I'm never switching!" and then within another day or two I think "Hey, I remember on XX ROM I got amazing battery life, I'll switch back to that again!" and the cycle continues :)

    As far as the SBF not taking, make sure you're using the right SBF for your bootloader, latest RSDlite, have the right Moto drivers, all that good stuff

    Lol a day, more like an hour or so, there are 3 that I've used a lot that's any one of many cm7 or shuji and the newest from mobile sensei the ICX which is a good one its a blur rom though but still fast its the one I've had my fastest linpak on

    The sbf is .340 for the 30.04 bootloader

    It will take but either show blank screens or very slow and never go back to home

    that's strange, maybe it was a bad download of the .sbf file, try downloading again. The ROMs I've used most are CM4DX GB, MIUI and Shuji. I've been wanting to try the ICS ROM but I just really don't like blur, how is the battery life on it?

    I'd say probably about as good as shuji but I almost never give my phone time to get battery right

    Yeah I did I got it from TBH SBF full download page plus another from an sbf guide in Droid x forums and its proper size and everything

    I think I'm gonna go back to stock rooted do a full factory reset on gb then stock recovery and wipe data/cache and try again that way and if it doesn't work then I will just stop trying lol

    I tried MIUI twice and just can't seem to get along with it or APEX but I really want to try SSX hence wanting to get to froyo

    MIUI... I have had such a love hate relationship with. It's such a great concept and such a nice LOOKING rom, but it just never works as well as I want it to and I end up jumping ship. I liked ApeX but I preferred Shuji even though they're pretty much the exact same ROM. I'm back on Shuji now and I'm thinking I'll probably keep it for a while, since I've tried pretty much every AOSP ROM out there for the GB kernel at this point and my main concern is battery life

    SSX and Liquid were my favorite Froyo kernel ROMs but 2nd init ROMs always had so many problems for me

    Yeah I think I'm about done jumping from rom to rom, although there is a new liberty on the horizon lol

    Honestly I want a 2nd int rom is because the boot manager app said that a 2nd int had to be phone rom or it would cause problems

    I've been wanting to try that boot manager app but I think I'd end up only using my phone ROM anyway and wasting space on my SD

    Well my only thinking is how much I jump from rom to rom it would be so much easier to do so, but I agree as soon as I get it and set it up I'd stop jumping around

    I want another phone, I'm thinking duel core, I have a pro but there is so little action for it, I wouldn't mind testing for some guys though, I am very intrigued in the development area

    I'm very satisfied with my X but I have an upgrade to use and that Samsung Nexus Prime looks amazing. I'm thinking I'll just wait a little bit after it gets released for the price to go down and for some development to happen so I can root/ROM it worry free


    ...we did a great job threadjacking here haha

    augh... I flash Shuji, get everything set up and see that there's a newer version of CM4DX I can get... looks like my third ROM flash in like 12 hours haha

    and maybe, I might have just gotten the name wrong, I'm referring to whichever one they were posting on the droidforums homepage with the curved screen and what not

    No you are probably correct, I know there's two nexus phones that are developer phones as I was reading up on string up an android build environment, but I can't recall the names

    And isn't that how it goes the life of a hacker never ends lol, I'm gonna try froyo sbf again shortly
