    Yesterday I purchased 2 Dx's off of Craigslist. So far they appear to be in mint condition (looks and functionality). Only thing, mine is rooted. I'm not new to the rooting/roming scene, as my title states I also have a N1. The Dx seems to be a whole different kind of beast. It's currently running Fission 2.4.3 with Bootstrap installed. Not exactly sure of what the best roms to run for the Dx are, so that's why I created this thread. Any help or guidance would be appreciated.

    Also, I would like to know can I just flash different roms with my phone in the state it's currently in, or are there other avenues I must travel before flashing diff. roms?

    You can go to your settings menu and go down to the bottom and click "about phone". Then check to see that your system version is 2.3.340. It more than likely is...

    You already have what you need on the phone to flash Darkslide (which you will like). Make a backup first of course, and check to see if you have a stock backup also.

    Things will be a bit different in flashing Roms from what you are used to so do the research so you are comfortable.

    Id be happy to take that N1 off your hands! Ask if have any other questions.

    Thanks for your reply MrKleen, I checked and all is says for the system version is fission_2.4.3. If you were serious about the N1 better move now. I have it listed on craigslist for $275 each or $480 for both of them. A lady contacted me about buying both of them earlier today. But anyways, I'm gonna' flash this DarkSlide and see what it's looking like. Thanks for your help once again!

    Attempted to flash the DarkSlidev4.1 and failed to installed. I'm assuming my sbf isn't up to par. I have the Shado_x6_2.3.34 file, how do I install this? Both my computers are Macs.

    I think you will enjoy Darkslide. I had to switch out the themed keyboard with the plain black version they offer. You may like their themed version and you may not. It's easy to change though!

    I like that it has 3g hotspot built in!

    Good luck.

    Did you try to load the rom from within clockwork recovery? You can't use rom manager...

    Did you clear data and cache?

    I don't think you can use your mac to flash the sbf.

    Give me more info on how you are trying to load the rom and I can probably help.

    On the sd card is there a stock backup that the original owner made?

    If so maybe restore to that and try from there. Of course it would depend on what backup you have also.

    I am sure you will get this under control ...
