    Welcome to the forums.
    My choice for a rom would have to be Chevys SS rom for the Droid 1. I have been using it since version 4.2 with no problems. The most recent is version 4.9 update 1. The update must be installed separately. Although when you go in to the app drawer and select chevy tools it should have an option to check for updates. If you are running clockwork recovery the installation process for the update is fully automatic.
    Enjoy your stay with us.

    Most of the info I provided is for the Droid. If you plane to root the X the last link works. Make use you install a rom that is compatible with the X.

    Take your time. Make notes and post your questions. If you decide to root and have any questions or issues the community will be here to assist you.
