    Rooted using Gingerbreak. Removed all my bloat and blocked ads. I saw someone say in a comment that they were running Liberty GB on this. In Rom Manager there is no option for DX2. My question: Has anyone tried using CWM mod on this using the Droid X option? I want some Liberty on this guy... Any further info about ROMs for this would be fantastic - I've scoured the internets and not much is up yet.

    Thanks

    I can't answer your question, but do you have bootstrapper on the DX2?

    I have Root Explorer (in market - not free). Open it, give it superuser permissions - go to system - app - find the bloat you don't want - hit the top right button so it says "MOUNT R/O" (This puts you in Read/Write status) - long press the apps you don't want - DELETE. Be very careful, you can mess stuff up if you get too crazy. I would remove the VCast Apps, Blockbuster, and Amazon. There are others, but don't touch anything that says "Blur".

    As far as ads go, download AdFree in the market (free) and let it rip.

    I am not responsible if you mess anything up :)

    Be safe...don't delete, Freeze them using Titanium Backup....an app anyone should have anyway, especially if you're rooted.

    I second this. If you delete apps and you don't have a SBF file to fall back on you'll be screwed if you try to factory reset. Besides, freezing the apps in TB has the same exact effect as deleting them.

    On the X1 the physical camera button is "enter" in CWM. I'm not sure what would be what on the X2?!

    Good point, same on D1/D2.

    Wonder if they removed the physical cam button purely for cost control - I was disappointed by that.

    When it becomes supported it will use the power button, just like the thunderbolt.

    Smilin' now, hope you don't end up frownin' laytah. :)


    On D2/D1 power button is to back up one menu level...so how would that be managed? Maybe volume up could be up menu level in CW....

    Actually, in CWM the home "soft" key is the enter button on the Thunderbolt.

    You know if you think about it we actually have 7 buttons that could be used since the 4 along the bottom are physical instead of touch
