    Still using my Droid X to this day, and I love it. Still the best phone I've had. I sold my crappy Thunderbolt and went back to my X. I can do without 4G for now.

    Currently running MIUI DefX 2012.5.12.... And it's smooth as butter. I liked the ICS, but it's still too buggy yet. But my X is running crystal clear, fast, and no crashes. I love it.dancedroid

    I'm still kicking with my droid X. Had it since 2010. I am trying out the Liquid ICS v1.6 rom. Had to iron out some wrinkles but it is running pretty goods now. Battery life is still average but everything runs faster and smooth. Very happy with it so far.

    I still have mine, runs like a champ with Liquid ICS; don't plan on getting a new phone until the next nexus comes out, maybe not even until then. I still want my unlimited data and am saving for a car, so I can't go all out for a phone. dancedroid

    I'm still using my Droid X, but the screen is having problems. It's flashing and occasionally goes black. Anyone know where I can find a replacement screen with instructions on how to replace it? I've worked on phones before, so it won't be new, just never on my DX.

    Still using mine daily. Still running the last CM7 built on GB kernel. But waiting for December for Nexus or S3. My X is slowing down.

    Try ebay or Google for parts and YouTube for instructions. taking the dx apart is actually easy.... with the right tools.

    Can you tell me which Torx I need? I've seen 2 of the screens on eBay with 2 different sets of T screwdrivers. One had a T-3 and T-4, the other had a T-5 and T-6.

    If you never found out, if I remember correctly from taking mine apart, you'll need a T-5 and T-4.

    or you can use a slotted 3/64" Jewelers screwdriver - like the kind for screwing screws in eyeglasses and sunglasses. Taking mine apart now to fix the broken "cold solder" connection for wi-fi and gps - that has been not working for over a year. Lousy design, Motorola engineers. Hoping Google oversight will provide better attention to consumer/user interface and experience.

    Thanks for you input. The screen has pretty much completely died, so I just ordered a new phone from Let's Talk. It should be here the middle of next week. I'm thinking that now I might get the screen replace and use it for an mp3 player. I love the X, just felt it was time to upgrade.

    A great Android answer to the stinkin' iPod Touch

    I also still love my Droid X, but I DEFINITELY had it overloaded because it was soooooo painfully slow. Went to the Droid DNA (which is screamingly outstanding, but that is another thread), and after fixing the wifi/gps connection internally, I performed a "Factory Reset" on the X, got my WiFi working on it, leaded my Google/Gmail account, but was messed up because it put the OS back to the original 2.1 from 2010, and the "Market" icon was there - no Google Play. In fact, every time I tried to go to the Market, it open a browser to play.google.com , but I could not access the Market to download apps. Also, there is no Google Play app available for separate download.

    I went into "Settings", "About Phone", and "Updated" the phone back to 2.3 Gingerbread OS via my Wi-Fi connection - but make sure your phone has a good charge before you do it. After spending some time, and a couple of Power Off/Power On cycles, the X works on Wi-Fi. It's a good MP3/Gaming/Micro-Tablet device for the kids, and banging around the house.

    Good luck!

    Droid X is still alive and well.......as Johnny Winter would say. Just had to get new battery last month. Running to good to put it aside. Looking for a ROM that does not break something i.e.radio, camera, camcorder, wifi, etc.
