    I'm no noob per say to the whole hacking of Android. I've had a D1 since it's launch and have been messing with it ever since... I now have a DX and I know it's a whole different ball game with the installing of custom ROMs and whatnot. My DX is rooted, but I now would like to install a custom ROM. My question is HOW!? I don't wanna brick my phone, I know there's this "BootStrap" thing but don't know what it's used for, do I still use ROM Manager? I'm lost as a noob and I really hate it. There are no stickys ANYWHERE that address this for me. So I'm asking if I wanted to install TranQ 3.0 on my DX how do I go about it? Thanks in advance! dancedroid

    Make sure you have an sbf file handy because no it's not really the same. I just got my dx and tried to install rubix and went into bootloop and now theres no way to get into recovery

    That thread will tell you what you need -- if you don't really need ROM Manager/clockwork -- but it stresses being familiar with using RSD Lite because if something goes really haywire it will be your best friend. :)

    There may be a way. Try this. First to stop the boot loop pull the battery. Now plug your phone in.Once you have your phone plugged in and the battery back in, power up the phone and don't touch anything. With any luck your phone will boot into clockwork recovery. If this works then do this. go down to mounts then mount the system.Now back out and pick the Rom from your SD card. Well I hope that helps you. Good luck.
