    I have messed with rubix, liberty and apex. They all had options to allow blur apps. My current rom is liberty but am in the process of moving to apex because it seems faster. Liberty does have way more customization options.

    Rubix blurry. Personally never used it, but its built around blur.

    ApeX or Rubix Blurry. In ApeX you get to choose what blur you have incase you want any AOSP, in RubiX you just get it.

    I'm a major liberty fan. There is so much customation options. I've ran both apex and rubix buy I keep coming back to liberty.

    RubiX Blurry is your best bet for the BLUR plus the performance gains since it removes alot of the VZW/Moto bloatware. And i can vouch that RubiX Blurry is the closest you are going to get to the BLUR on stock DX phones. I think it even comes with the ugly white status bar. idk for sure since i havent run that in a while since im usually in liberty or Focused.

    Thanks for all the replies! So I have two new questions: Does anyone have an idea of when blur 3.4.2 will be officially pushhed to the droid x? Next, can I flash rims to my droid x without access to a computer? I am currently rooted through z4 but that's it.

    Thanks

    Yes you can your not SOL. If you dont have a PC access for some reason. You can download the zip to you phone by just finding the ROM you are looking for, here in droid forums or somewhere else. Wait for the download. You must have the Droid X Bootstrapper to flash whatever, its a download in the market. Its 3 bucks i think but it is def worth it since you can also create backups and other things while in the bootstrap recovery. find where the zip file is(depending what phone browser u use it should under a certain downloads folder)and move it to another easily accessible folder if you want. Follow the instructions that are given by the Dev of the ROM. Remember always make a backup before you flash ROMs or Themes. The backups are named by the date and time but you can rename them to easily distinguish them.(no spaces in the names though or u will get an error).

    Alright I've been reading about the 3.4.2 update for blur and I would really like to flash it and try it out. Now I need help doing this. I've purchased droid.x bootstrapper but haven't done anything with it yet. So where can I download the 3.4.2 update (for free) and what do I do after that?

    Thanks a bunch!!

    I can't help you out on this, since I haven't done it, but use the search tool to search the forums for the 3.4.2 link. I think that you lose root access when you get it, so restoring what you have is different. Just a heads up, you'll have to find someone else to answer it.

    Unfortunately you will need to buy TBH app because they explicity asked end users not to freely distribute the leak. Also once rooted (using super one click, z4 wont work), you will also need to purchase droid2 bootstrapper because the DX version doesn't work on new blurr. So that's two purchases... together amounting to approximately 5 bucks. Here's detailed information on everything you will need to know:
