    You don't even need to SBF, just make a backup of what you have immediately after root. These should be your steps:

    -Root using z4Root v 1.3
    -Reboot
    -Run Droid X Recovery Bootstrap
    -Will automatically reboot into recovery
    -Create backup
    -Install rom or whatever you want!
    -THATS IT!

    Now, when you want to get back to stock:
    -Boot into recovery using Droid X Recovery Bootstrap
    -Select zip from SD Card
    -Select your backup
    -Install that
    -Reboot
    -Unroot using z4root (one click!)
    -Reboot
    -Wipe data, restore to factory!

    And good as new!

    Just use Z4Root. You will need Z4Root (off the internet because it isn't in the market) and Droid X Bootstrap (from the market). Run z4root, and you press a button that says to "ROOT ME!". It roots you and reboots. That's it. Then do the backup by rebooting in to recovery like I said in the last post.

    If you ever want to get to stock, restore your backup that is stock but rooted, and then run z4root and you will either be able to "Re-root" or "Unroot". Just click unroot, it unroots you and then delete z4root and recoverybootstrap. No signs of a root, but you can data reset if you want to make sure.

    z4root takes one click to root and unroot, it take 30 seconds each way. I can root and unroot 500000000 times if I wanted to. All taking just one click.

    Well I'm running ApeX 1.3.1 which is awesome because you can use certain Blur aspects if you don't want aosp entirely. It functions great. The built in theme is gingerbread so you get certain gingerbread features such as the keyboard, black menus and status bar, with the green icons.
