    Ok lets say I down load Z4root from my lap top and install it into my phone..what programs or apps would I need to create a "nandroid" back up flash? or from a seasoned DX rooter, what would be the next step?? or should I even try if I'm not too confident??

    Don't be nervous. You will be fine. You will need DX bootstrapper to make your backup. Check out my sig.

    check out this... That is a donate version. you can download it here. My Brain Hurts: Droid X Recovery (and Droid 2 too!).. Consider donating once you have a CC Koush put a lot of work into this app and without we would do nothing with this x other than root.

    Do not do any ROMS or any further steps until you get a stock backup. Follow my youtube channel and it will take you through everything. :icon_ banana:

    Anything you see in my videos is compatible with 2.3.340. Im still not sure which file you are talking about. Maybe the download off of Koush's site?

    No your not screwed. You just don't have a stock backup to go back to if you wan't to update. You will have to SBF. As long as you have a stable ROM. Which so far liberty is you will be fine. You can flash other ROMS and such. I would make a backup of Liberty at least you will have something stable to go back to if crap hits the fan.

    You can download the maderstcok file that will take you back to stock without sbfing. I would recommend getting the file, flashing back to stock, reroot, install dx bootstrap, nandoid backup and reflash liberty.

    But that's just me... Always make a nandroid backup before you flash a rom.

    Thanks to both of you. I probably should've read up more before I fired away but I figure how much could it have changed from my og droid lol.. Boy I guess the answer is alot. I have liberty and love it. I got through work with resounding change in battery life, then again I did also have it plugged in a few hours. I downloaded juice defender and power max, I have yet to use power max but juice defender seems to work very well, I work at a factory on a line and cant always be using my phone so juice defender is set to kill the 3g unless I'm using it on an app. Works perfectly.

    I don't have any of those battery saving apps and I get minimum 14 hours of battery and I normally plug it in with about 30% left. I am a fan of undervolting instead of loading up with a bunch of power apps
