    Welcome!

    First you need to be rooted, try z4root, try here>>>http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/droid-x-hacks/13259-z4root-download-links-get-your-root-here.html

    And then check here>>>http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-x-hacks/110658-how-root-droid-x-worked-me.html

    Second you need an app called Bootstrap Recovery for Droid X in the Market.

    Then you need to make a nandroid backup. Which is a copy of you system.

    How to make a nandroid here>>>How to: Create a Full Nandroid Backup on a DROID X - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog

    After that do a lot of reading and research on what kind of ROM you want and

    what will suit you. Each ROM installs different, for the most part, but they all

    come with install instructions. My suggestion is read through the forum for a

    couple weeks before doing anything, seriously. Don't rush. Knowledge is power.

    Doing something right takes less time then the time it takes fixing what you

    messed up.

    Just a lurker, but I've been tweaking droids for a while.
