    please, for the sake of droid, take it slow! only use one of those apps at a time bc if something goes wrong then you wont know what caused it!

    SLOW DOWN!!!!

    Good deal! Bootstrap would be the most important, IMHO. Get that nandroid backup made up first.

    Are you gonna end up wanting a ROM or not? I'm running the most basic of ROM's right now with no issues. But now that I've had it a while I realize I could have done most of it myself. My suggestion to you is wait on a ROM. If you read through the ROM section you will see they are more of a headache than they're worth. Once again, JMO.

    My Theme is the 928Droid Black Glass X deodexEERRR Theme, which you can get here>>>928Droid Themes for the Droid X.

    This deodex's your phone for you. It is made for the 2.2 froyo update.

    No, no folder for it. Just move it over to the root of your card, no folder. It wont be able to read it in Clockwork if you have it in a folder.
