    Hey, I needed some help after rooting my Droid X. I don't know to much about hacking and such other than what I have been reading over the past week. I have done several searches on here and in google but nothing seems to get me where I want to go. I am noob so more detailed explanations would be great so I understand better and don't brick my phone.

    Currently I have my phone rooted using Z4 app.

    Running Android 2.2 and System Version "Version.2.3.15.MB810.Verizion.en.US

    I have ROM Manager + Premium, Astro, Droid X Bootstrap, and Root Explorer.

    Here are my issues...

    1. (Biggest Issue) I unrooted my phone cleared data and cache so I could install Software 2.3.340. After downloading and hit install the phone reboots and during install a Triangle comes up and after booting up the phone says Update Failed.

    2. I went to do a manual update of 2.3.340 Using ClockworkMod Recover, every time I try to install I get an error message. I have the file named update.zip and Mount and Unmount Partitions read: unmount /system unmount /data which from my understanding is correct (maybe I am wrong).

    When I "choose zip from sdcard" I will get the following errors:

    First Error

    assert failed: getprop("ro.product.device") == "cdma failed: getprop(ro"build.product") == "cdma_shadow"
    E: Error in /sdcard/update.zip
    (Status 7)
    Installtion Aborted

    Second Error (Signature Check: Enabled)

    E:failed to verify whole-file signature
    E:signature verification failed
    Installation Aborted


    3. I wanted to download/install cyanogenmod on my Droid X. I have Purchased Rom Manager Premium as well. I have Advanced Mode Check and when I go to download or find a CM ROM it doesn't even appear. Under Download ROM at the bottom there is 1 Premium called forkup and when I click on it nothing appears. How do I get more ROMS such as cyanogenmod?


    Maybe these problems I am having are really stupid but I have to learn somewhere and I am not getting anywhere just searching. Everytime I try what I searched it doesn't work so I figured I would make a thread pertaining specifically to my issues. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you,
    Chris
