    I have everything in place. I just want to make sure that when I push it, and for some reason, nothing will work (Because I'm modifying the framework), that I can "backup". I know there is no backup option in the recovery. So I guess if it doesn't work, I'll just have to do factory reset ect.? I have everything backed up with titanium, and I'm fine with doing the root process over again.

    To clarify, I'm not going to release this as an actual theme, because I just took the files from another theme, and seeing if it will work. I just took the files, and moved them into the correct folders in the framework-res.apk. So I don't think I have to do any XML/services.jar modifying, but if I do let me know.

    I would be extremely careful with that as it seems to be very sketchy. First off, without a recovery that could be dangerous, Factory Reset does not restore the framework, so if it doesn't work, you'll have to be able to replace the framework from the recovery (using adb).

    Also I don't think copy and paste from other themes will work because the different screen size. This is where things can go wrong because if the X has a different framework than the theme you're copying from you're going to run into a lot of problems.

    in the recovery, when you plug in the usb nothing will happen, but when you go on your computer and try to use adb shell it should work.

    I can try to help you if you give me more information

    In that case I'm not really sure. Are there any options in recovery like "Mount System" or anything along those lines? Luckily I haven't had such a problem, but this is why Motorola should just release the SBF. Also there is an update.zip from the update that was just released, you can try to install the update.zip and it should hopefully fix your problem.

    I downloaded the one on alldroid and it doesn't work do you know of any other place I can get it? That's what I have been looking for because that's pretty much the only thing you can do in recovery besides wipe

    Did you try to install a Droid ROM? Just wait until someone figures out how to replace the status bar on the X and follow their instructions. It's a pretty high risk thing to play with for how simple of a change it should be.
