    I just got my Droid X in the mail, activated it, and rooted it with Z4, but I have no idea what roms are good, etc. After reading around, I've noticed that some don't allow you to use all of the features, like HDMI out, etc. I want something blurless, but I don't want to lose any functionality. Are any of the roms available fully functional?

    I was running Charity Smoked Glass on my droid which i loved due to the speed increase and stability, and would like something comparable.

    Thanks in advance!

    so on both liberty and rubix, does everything work as it should? hdmi, 720p recording, bluetooth, etc?

    rubix looks nice, but I don't want to lose any functionality

    you will lose the blur camera app for the AOSP cam, which is a downgrade is some people's opinion, you can always bring the blur cam back though

    I just jumped from d1 to x myself. I am loving Liberty, but to be honest I haven't tried anything else, but don't know why I would Liberty is awesome.

    the camera app isn't all that spectacular to me... The standard camera app is fine... I just want to make sure actual functionality is all there still... is anything at all not working with Liberty? (or Rubix)

    Get rubix. You wont be dissapointed. If need be use root explorer to copy the camera the phobe comes with (apk) and put ut in the systens folder and reboot but remove the one thats in the system after installing rubix. But ya try rubix and you wont be sad at all. Also black juice blue or green themes for it are awesome :) hole that helps.

    It's impossible to go with a Blurless ROM and keep all functionality. Likewise, it's impossible to stay on a Blur ROM and get as much functionality as you do with a Blurless ROM (like performance). You have to pick one or the other. There are ROMs that try to be a hybrid between the two but you have to decide what you want, what's important to you, and what you can't live without.

    If you absolutely NEED HDMI out, then you need to stick with a Blur-based ROM. Rubix Blurry is an option to consider for this as a hybrid. Ultimately, spend a few hours installing various different ROMs and try them for yourself. None are perfect, but many are damned good!
