    I have the Droid X2 and a friend of mine suggested I check out this site to change features I wished my phone had without having to download applications from Google Play Store n order to get them, And having to use ad supported software from there cause it drives me nuts when it installs icons and other software.

    I did check out the site to see if it was what i was looking for and if it was worth signing up for and thank you to everyone and all for making it so informative and great place to add and change features within my phone.
    Thanks Again, Rob :biggrin: :hail:

    Awesome TY but i did post the thread 2 times like a tard once after fixing it thought maybe i could click back and just fix it and not show up 2 times but it did lol.
    Sorry for not replying sooner site asked me to complete survey so i was taking it.
    Also if i have any questions after searching for forums and not being able to find any since you have more experience than i do at this roms, rooting, and well just anything other than google play store i am an idiot at when i heard and saw the things i could do at this site. whats the best way of asking a question just on each individual thread or could i just pm someone and hope like heck to get a response. lol

    If there's something you want to know, first search for a thread on it... if you don't find one, then make a thread. There's an entire section for the x2... make your thread there and someone will pop over and help you out. :) with pm's... its hit or miss.. you might ask someone who doesn't necessarily know... by posting in the open forum, we can all see it and help..

    You don't have to worry about people flaming or saying snide remarks here... we're all here to help, we're all here to learn :) I was total newb just 7 months ago :)

And thanks again for your help. I am just the lucky one that gets to learn about all of this so I can do the same to my friends phones cause they are lazy. LOL Thanks so much.

    Okay I am stupid how do I tell if I have a Droid X2 second generation? And is rooting the same thing as jail breaking like I did with my iPod ? I hate to bother you but you have the Droid X2. And did you ever get free tethering and does installing roms change the appearance and functionality of the OS or is that the GB, Honeycomb or ICS OS that does that? Which I was wondering if ICS is available and will work for the Droid X2 and if not what is best to use besides what I have or is that it? I have GB 2.3.5 and Honeycomb is 3.x.x and ICS is 4.x.x I just found out. So was curious as to what you have or had cause i figured your a god at this and know what your doing.

    Hello and welcome to the forum!

    I think if you have an X2, that is the second version of the Droid X...Rooting is similiar to jailbreaking but there are different processes for each device, you will want to make sure that you have the root method for the X2.

    You might check out the app FoxFi for wireless tethering and ROMs will change the appearance some but the OS of the device will also do that - when you jump from Gingerbread to ICS, there is a huge difference. I am not sure if the X line will receive ICS officially ( I am thinking not, but I am sure there are several ROMs available that do that )...

    Good luck!
