    Hi all,

    I am thinking about installing the new CM release. I'm using a rooted DX with the recent 605 update. (I used the MotorolaOneClickRoot application to root the phone.)

    I have backups of stock Froyo (rooted) and Gingerbread 602.

    Can I just follow the instructions on the wiki page?
    Motorola Droid X: Full Update Guide - CyanogenMod Wiki

    Or are there changes needed for 605 or CM7.1?

    Is it sufficient to reinstall the stock Froyo from my backup or should I follow the explicit downgrading procedure here:
    Motorola Droid X: Full Update Guide - CyanogenMod Wiki

    Thanks a lot in advance. This would be a first for me so I am (a) a bit nervous and (b) very appreciative of any help.

    since you are on the .605 kernel you can't downgrade back to Froyo with just a backup, you will need to follow the SBF flashing instructions to get back to the Froyo (.340) kernel. Once you have done that you will be able to flash a Froyo kernel ROM

    you can also flash CM4DX GB, which uses the GB kernel, download here: http://www.revnumbers.info/dx.html
    download CM4DX Nightly Build 2011-08-28, updates can be found in ROM Toolbox or ROM Manager

    Glad it works for you, aren't you just loving CM7.1 and Android 2.3.7? :)

    I got mine from the ROM toolbox, I have the paid version but I think you can download ROMs using the free one too

    I can't find it in the rom toolbox. It only has revs numbers.

    I tried gettting it from ROM Manager... and still no go although I heard on a different thread that CM nightly build 118 was actually cm 7.1 according to Gerrit Code Review any ideas if this version has the fm radio on there? Or where I can locate a version that works?

    The official builds still use the Froyo kernel, and the RevNumbers versions are on the GB kernel. I have only tried the RevNumbers versions so I'm not sure how the radio is, sorry

    When I go into Rom Manager and then download ROM, the only one I see under Rev Numbers is CM4DX GB 20110928.I'd like to get to 2.3.7. I'm on the GB kernel

    ROM Manager has not been updated in a while. You want to use ROM Toolbox by jrummy, it has the latest builds in it. The most current now is a 10-21-11 build, which I am currently running.

    this link also worked for me, flawless install. very pleased with CM 7 .... i deleted my most recent clockworkmod backup to do another backup before installing CM, but forgot to do the backup when i went ahead and wiped data/factory reset the phone. don't really mind as i like this OS it's running smooth so far.

    i installed it on top of 605, if i use RSD Lite and the 602 SBF i have, can i get the stock rom back again if i need to go that route ?

    Yes I have. When I was using it there was a widget being added but it could not report anything. It does not work for the same reason that the 1% reporting does not work on CM-GB. Not being a dev I can not explain it better but it is because they work off of the same thing.
