    I Have noticed a few "Rom's" coming out for Droid X which is essentially still under lock and key. My question is, how can these then be Roms and not merely themes? It's that a little misleading?

    there arent any "full" roms out yet, so to speak. the kernel is locked down.

    i really dont consider deodexing and removing stock apps a rom but some guys do..

    It requires a lot more work, and completely replacing the kernel isn't happening with the locked bootloader, but you can still apply roms.

    Give it time. Obsidian is coming :)

    So you're saying, without the ability of getting to the kernel, essentially the phone remains unchanged except for ascetics?

    That my question though, you say Roms, but in essence their only extravagant themes.

    Dont get me wrong, I truly can appreciate the time and effort spent and in no way am I attempting to downplay that. Just want clarity:).

    Most roms use the stock theme, so no theme really.. the thing about roms is the features they come with.
