    I don't quite understand, as you're leaving out a lot of detail.

    Your applications are gone? Try reinstalling them.

    Go under settings, than privacy, and finally select "Factory Data Reset".

    You can also do this:

    1. Power down your device.
    2. Hold down the "home" button while powering your device back on.
    3. When an image displaying an exclamation mark, etc. appears, press the "search" button.
    4. Use the volume keys to scroll down to "wipe data/factory reset". Select this option using the camera button.
    5. After this is done, reboot your phone.

    So when you pull up the app drawer, there's nothing there?

    You're going to have to ask your friend what he did while he was "rooting" your device.
    My guess is that you or him messed with some files you shouldn't have.

    You can always try getting a copy of someone's /system/ files than copying it to your device.

    You can try downloading the recent OTA update from somewhere, and than applying it as in update.zip through recovery. (not sure on this)

    Anything more to restore it would require the bootloader being cracked. (flashing roms, etc.)

    As I've said before, you cannot implement custom ROMs onto the Droid X until the bootloader is cracked...which it's not.

    I've got your solution right here. This should get all of your apps back, but your going to have to use a PC and install ADB on it first. Go to this page and read the OP's post. At the bottom of his post he says
    Next you follow his instructions under "The Free Way" and you should be good to go for copying all of the apps back over to the /system/app folder. Feel free to come back here with questions.:icon_wink:
