    Hello. I'm used to flashing Tom's on my Droid x, but am not familiar with the og Droid. I'm also used to a locked bootloader. The way it is with my X is I need to be on the same android version and kernal to flash a rom. My og has Android version 2.2.3 I want to flash cm7. Do I need to be on a specific version, or doesn't it matter? I am rooted and have cwm recovery. Thanks

    That right there is the beauty of the unlocked bootloader. Regardless of the build you can wipe and flash :D

    If anything ever happens you just boot into recovery and reflash or restore a back up.

    Yeah the differences between locked and unlocked are astounding. It's not necessary, just easier. I loved my DX and had a great time modding it but I had the D1 well over a year and never SBFed it once. Never needed to lol.
