    You are correct! Google is naming them after desserts....Doughnut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream, etc.
    I'm not familiar with anything earlier than Doughnut myself though.

    You've got awhile to wait before that happens, since Gingerbread (the next version) isn't released to anybody yet. However, since you are rooted and since it is now possible to have custom ROMs on your X, you can install a custom ROM and get features of the next version of the OS without losing root. Alternatively, you can unroot when the next update comes out, get the official update and then reroot if possible.

    okay, this is what stage i'm at. i want custom ROM's and themes, so i want to know what Recovery manager do i need, to do everything that is needed to succesfully do the above. as far as i read up on, i need to be able to do a Nandroid backup just in case. which seems to be the main the thing.

    i downloaded: Droid X bootstrapper, is this good enough? or should i have downloaded ROM Manager....this where is where i'm at now...

    i haven't done anything to my DX since i Rooted it....

    You can get rom manager if u like, but I wouldn't recommend installing through it. Use rom manager to download the rom of your choice and install through clockwork recovery. To do this, you need to install bootstrap recovery. After you have that installed your all set. Download your rom of choice.. open bootstrap recovery and choose the first option. When it says success, choose reboot recovery. After it reboots you will be in clockwork recovery. You then want to make a nandroid backup of your existing setup from here. After that install the rom you downloaded but be SURE to follow the exactly instructions as each rom install can vary!

    SWEET!!!!!!!
    this is what i wanted to know, thank you.
    Bootstrap Recovery is the same app as the Droid X Bootstrapper? this is noobish i know..lol, so thru Bootstrap Recovery i can do a Nandroid backup? so need to install Rom Manager?

    the theme and roms that i really like, i found here. like the 928Droid's theme and the Apex Rom one,
    so i don't really need to download through Rom manager right?
    just copy the zip file into the SDcard? this part i kinda need to understand a little clear'er. do i copy the whole downloaded zip into the SDcard?


    and again i thank you.....

    Well Bootstrap is the program which allows you to boot your phone INTO recovery. You do nandroids through Clockwork Recovery not bootstrap. You dont have to install rom manager if you don't want to.. you can find any rom that they have on that program on the internet... just have to look. RM is convenient that it's kinda a one stop shop for roms.

    You download the rom / theme you would like and place them on your sd card. open bootstrap program and press bootstrap recovery .. wait till it returns 'SUCCESS' and click on reboot recovery...

    From there be sure to follow the directions to isntall the specific rom!! All roms install differently, so following the instructions for each one is a must!! Always make it a habit to do a nandroid backup before any changes so if something messes up you have a return point.

    AS far as rom / themes go.. only certain themes will work for certain roms ... so be sure to look at the rom your downloading and see what themes are supported by it!

    i want to Deodex my phone, so i'm going with the 928Droid Deodexeerr
    when i'm in Clockwork Recovery do i:

    Format System..
    Format Data..and
    Format Cache.
    then mount system and then into Installing zip form Sdcard then install the 928 Deodexeerr? this is what i seen in a video, which the person was installin a ROM.
    is the same process for installin Themes?

    You shouldn't have to format your data or cache but ALWAYS make a backup first.
