    I just rooted my Droid X a couple weeks ago, I have tried to flash a couple different MIUI ROM's to no avail. I desperately want this rom. where can I get a stable MIUI rom for my phone preferable one that will allow me to continue wifi tehering. I am running, system version 4.5.605, android version 2.3.3, kernel 2.6.32.9-g34b306d. Yes, I am a NOOB....:frown: So any help will be very much appreciated...

    Welcome to Droid Forums! What happened when you tried to flash the ROM that it did not work?

    You mean when you are trying to flash it you are unable to locate the zip file on your phone? Did you move it there from your PC or did you download it directly to the phone?

    I copied it from my pc, but when I open the ROM (in my pc)I looked in every file and I see no update.zip file. I have downloaded a couple different ROMs from Droidmodderx, looked through them for this update zip file and find none in any of the ROMs.

    Try downloading it again and then trying to flash it. This time make sure to pay attention to what the error message says.

    Yes the ROM will be in update.zip format. Were you unzipping it or something before moving it?

    Just sign back in and look at your subscribed threads. If you post in here again I will get an email alert about it.

    And on a side note if you are not yet comfortable with the whole rooted phone/ROM flashing process it may be a good idea to slow it down a bit and take some time to read up on how to do it. Also, you will want to read on how to recover your phone if something goes wrong.

    well I have been researching for about 2 weeks. The first try I had to do a recovery and I used titanium back up. Turned out fine but I lost some minor stuff.

    Are you familiar with how to do a nandroid backup? Or how to SBF? Those are 2 very important things to know when involved in rooting and modding.

    Hands down I recommend doing it manually. Besides much of the functionality does not work on the Droid X because of the locked bootloader.

    I have not figured out nandroid back up. When I load boot strapper and create a system back up it shows a back up file in clockwork recovery but I can't find anything that says nandroid back up. As far as SBF I think I understand it but like I said I am a noob. SBFing is recovering your stock ROM and kernel right? And I need redline on my pc to do so. Am I close??

    When you are in recovery and you perform the function to create a back up that is a nandroid. It will not be labeled that way but it is.

    And when you SBF you are returning your phone to a complete factory state. You do need a PC and it requires a program known as RSD Lite. There should be a number of video guides out there to watch and learn from.
