    :welcome: to the forum!

    You mean when you search for boostrap in the market you don't get an app to install it?

    I think the lack of punctuation is causing confusion. I think he already has bootstrap but wants to know how to flash roms.

    Hey no worries no gramar police here. First thing you're going to need to do is decide on a rom. Some of them are installed differently then others.

    It's cool, Preach. Just take some time, type it out right, and you'll have all the help you could want soon enough. :)

    Welcome to the forum! as you can already see, there's plenty of helpful people - and a wealth of info and knowledge behind them!! stick around, join in the fun - you'll be rockin your X like a pro in no time!

    for now, i'll move this thread over to the DX Hacks section - you'll probably get a little more pertinent traffic over there.

    You can always just click on the user cp tab at the tool bar on the top of the screen. That will show all of the topics you are active in. But specifically he is moving it to the droid x hacks section of the droid x sub forum.

    Edit: i'm moving too slow tonight. You guys are putting me to shame...

    No such thing as a stupid question. First you'll need to grab droid x recovery bootstrap from the marketplace. That's how you boot into custom recovery. From there you just follow the instructions as posted. Let me know if you have other questions, although i'll be hittin the sack soon so I might not get back to you till morning. But that doesn't mean someone else wont be around.

    Oh and before you do anything you'll want to use the recovery to do a nandroid backup.
