    I currently have the D1 rooted running UD 8.0. Just bought an X. Did I make the right decision? Anyone else out there upgrade from a rooted D1? If so, are you satisfied? :icon_eek:

    Absolutely love my x. Same upgrade as you. Yes, I do wish the bl was unlocked and there was a plethora of roms to choose from like d1, but im sure that will come in time. Install rubix, it rocks.

    Upgraded from D1 to an X, extremely happy i did.

    The D1 feels like a small brick now, lol.

    Interesting, I used to overclock the D1 to 800mhz but I find myself underclocking the X to 800mhz to save my battery. It still feels fast at 800mhz. :)

    I have mine set to 600mhz and it's still fast. Don't know if it would be on everyone's DX but it is on mine.

    If 2.2 broke things on your phone you need to first do a factory hard reset (assuming you haven't already). If that doesn't fix things for you take the phone to a factory Verizon store and have them reflash the 2.2 os. If you still have issues, get them to replace the phone as software is covered by the warranty too.

    Oh and to the op, you made the right decision if you are happy with it. :)

    dont know if underclocking is saving you much battery. Im pretty sure its still using the same voltage to run it.

    Now underVOLTING was an option on 2.1 but not quite yet on 2.2..
    thats what would save u the battery
