    Well about 6 months ago I rooted with Z4 and went to DarkSlide 4.2 ... I've never really been all that happy with it, but school got busy and then work this summer. Now my X has been constantly wanting me to take the OTA for Gingerbread for months now and I just click Install Later twice a day lol. I am wanting to try something new, but it's been so long that I don't know what the hell I'm really doing lol. And I'm sure you guys get this all the time but....

    What's the favorite ROM out there for the X now? So many more options out there now, I see Liberty has a Gingerbread-based ROM, DarkSlide X is even out, as well as a CyanogenMod?!? I've been gone too long. And...

    What steps do I need to do to get to said ROM from where I am now, a rooted DarkSlide 4.2 Froyo? It seems I read you can't really take the OTA gingerbread over a custom froyo ROM, so does that apply to the gingerbread-based ROMs too? I would assume I need to wipe my phone first? Can't even remember how to factory reset... I'm so lost lol.

    Any help is appreciated :)
