    From what I know, the X is still mainly locked down. This means there is no alternate recovery to load and you will not be able to change roms or themes. You will be able to overclock the kernel and access wifi tethering.

    So my question is what are you wanting to do to your X?? If you are wanting a different theme or rom, you are going to have to wait and see if anyone is able to unlock the bootloader.

    well basically all i want to do with my X is use wifi tethering and get setcpu so i can make my processor run slower when im not using it and faster when i am... but i really am a noob so im not going to try elkay's method of overclocking because i would mess it up so im waiting for an easier way if there is one. also i want to be able to get the real froyo 2.2 update OTA but can i? im fine with unrooting and then getting it.. but im not sure if that will work...?

    Overclocking is pointless IMHO on the DX. its already at 1GHz. and theres not much info about 2.2 for the DX yet to know what will happen. probably just install and lose root..
