    Getting into bootstrap can be difficult. Sometimes the stock recovery image loads faster, so what you need to do is reboot again. Keep doing this till you can get into bootstrap. You may need to do a battery pull to force the reboot. If you simply cannot get into bootstrap after a few tries then let us know and we'll try to help. My understanding of the X is limited, but I wanted to toss that out there so you don't think your phone is bricked and you flash it back to stock. While it's possible you might have to, the chances of this being the case are very slim. :)

    For your contacts, use Google/GMail, they'll sync with your X flawlessly
