    Okay, so i know i need to root, but do i have to have a custom rom to use themes? If so, what is the best rom to use right now? I somehow managed to get a sweet purple theme on my gf's OG droid. Is it much different than that?

    Yes use Clockwork, read all instructions and posts before installing. If you don't want to deodex your phone manually make sure you install the 928 Black Glass X deodexEERR theme located here>>>928Droid Themes for the Droid X

    Oops, quoted wrong one for Theme.

    ROM's? I'm running rubiX .03 Blurry right now. It's simple and is working well for me. I read for a month or more on every ROM before choosing, I really do suggest you do the same. I was in the "mood" for a long time but wanted to get it right.

    If you install a Theme and decide to put a ROM on it will overwrite it. I would still suggest trying out a Theme for a few before advancing.

    JMO:)

    Yea I never used doroot method. Unless the file is named rootmyx2.

    Here>>>http://www.droidforums.net/forum/rescue-squad-guides/70875-what-you-need-know-about-rooting.html

    And if your using rootmyx2 easy root method I did a lot of toggling between connections to get that to go.
