    ZapX RC2 is finally complete for Droid X. It's fast as hell and is very, very customized. There is still some Blur left, but very little. It's even faster then RC1

    ALL NEW UPDATED 10/20!

    RC2 UPDATES:

    OTA Rebuilt
    Optimized and Zipalinged
    System Performance Tweaks
    Animated Weather apps and Radar Fixed
    Car Dock Fixed
    Programs such as Tasker and OS Manager Fixed
    3D Gallery Option
    Work Contacts Option
    File Manager Option
    Fixed Force Closes
    DLNA and Media Share Removed
    Swype removed added as an option
    Voice Search Removed (Download from Market)

    Launchers have been removed from the system and placed as downloadable options.

    Available on Rom Manager.

    NEW INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS, VERY IMPORTANT:

    ***Note: Make sure you have 2.2 previously installed (if not I recommend downloading team black hats app and download Froyo 2.3.1.5 move it from the team black hat folder in your sdcard to the root of your sdcard, reboot recovery and install zip.)***

    -Run the Droid X Bootstrapper App
    -Boot into Bootstrap Recovery
    -Create a Nandroid back up if you like to be safe
    -Go into Mounts and Storage
    -Format System
    -Format Cache
    -Mount System (MAKE SURE TO DO THIS STEP)
    -Press back button
    -Install Zip From SDCard
    -Select the zapX rom of your choice
    -Select Yes
    -Reboot Your System
    -The first boot will take a little bit, but then zap, it’s zippy as hell.

    You don't really need screenshots for a rom...unless I read wrong it's a stock theme so it would look exactly like the stock DX.

    It has a theme, read more carefully. However the theme can be returned to stock or changed to another one if a person does not like it. It does not affect the rom itself that much. Without the theme there is a little more system memory free but not that much.

    Threats

    Is has become known to me that there are some threats that do not affect new users, but old users and for that reason the download was pulled while I work on revisions. RC2 will be posted as soon as possible without these kinks and will have much stable ground work and more to come including a faster system.

    I've run into a couple of kinks.
    1) i'm receiving txts twice.
    2) For some reason not all of my exchange contacts pulled in.

    --- As it appears, none of them did. some are there but it looks like they were picked up my gmail previously.

    Hey 713King, can you post up the HTC Bokeh live wallpaper that you have in your sig for everyone else to grab? I've never been able to find the real one!
    Thanks!

    There was left over data on the files that needed to be taken out. Revisions have been made and so far so good. Files are being uploaded as we speak. RC2 will be out soon but revisions will be up tonight if possible.

    Exchange is working for me, try the revision that I'll be posting tonight and see if that works better for you. There were some kinks and in the RC1. The revision is better and faster.

    For those that are having any issues using any of the social status widget, social networking or messages widget. It is known that on some devices that is not working properly. First try reinstalling is that does not work, A fix is on its way.

    I'm really like this rom thus far. One problem I've been having is with my contacts syncing with my facebook contacts...Not sure what's going on...

    Not sure I get you, are you having a problem syncing your facebook contacts onto the phone? If this is the case try removing the facebook account from the my accounts app or under settings. Then add a new account and select facebook. Make sure you are not selecting the facebook app that you may have downloaded from the market. Add your login info. A new popup window should ask you if you want it to set the source of pictures or will say facebook is the source of pictures. You should now be able to go into contacts hit the groups button on the top and scroll down to facebook. or just select a contact and some of their facebook info should show up.

    Right, I had tried that multiple times with no luck. It prompts me to tell me it will use facebook as the source for contact photos but did not actually do that. When I open contact info for any of my phone contacts that are also facebook contacts I get nothing. Under linked profiles, where it should say facebook, it does not. I originally had this problem using rubix focused but fixed it by adding all social networking and sync apps that weren't included in the release, however your release has included those apps needed for sync, so im not sure why im still having this problem...
