    I got my dx Monday, I rooted it, got Titanium backup, got bootstrapper, and I'm thinking about darkslide. Am I doing too much seeing that this is my first time doing anything besides talking and texting?

    You had it wrong at dx. I'm just kidding.

    Do one mod at a time so u understand it better, and if u break something u only have one thing to reverse and not have extensive troubleshooting.

    If you've done your homework and understand what your doing. Then No. If youre here trying the first thing you read. Then Yes.

    I am fairly new to the android scene (2 months) and I had the same questions as you. I lurked around this forum and learned what roms do and why they can make your phone do certain things/look certain ways. One member has video tutorials on flashing roms and it is really easy. As long as you have a backup of stock I say go for it. It's definitely worth it.

    +1 for having a Backup of the Stock rom made immediately after rooting.

    You should also read up on, and gather everything you need for flashing your device with RSD Lite and an sbf file, because sometimes that is the only thing that will save your device.

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...e-droid-x-sbf-flashing-guide.html#post1025361

    This file is also good to have on the root of your sd card as well. Almost as good as an sbf file. It's like an sbf in a zip file. The only downside, and it's a big one, is that you have to be able to boot into Clockwork Mod Recovery to use it.

    Let me know how you like darkslide. I have been curious about trying that out. Liberty is the first rom I flashed and I like it a lot so I haven't tried out any others.
