    Easy is a relative term, read up a few posts where I mentioned you have to go BACK to Froyo to root. I am sure they are cooking up something to root for those who don't want to mess with going back software versions and such.

    Lol, They say there is a built in theme that came with CM7 that allows the camera/camcorder to work. I found this just by skimming through the thread so....maybe it's not true?

    So did u do it? Want me to walk u through it? The process would be for u to .sbf down to froyo then root and install bootstrap. After that either go through the motions for cm7 or move on to gingerbread. The way I did it last was to flash the 3 part .zip and then flash to .596

    Ah, definitely best to follow root advice from someone on the same device and better yet, carrier.

    Long time fan of CM btw, run their nightlies + custom kernels, like the new call recording feature, has it crossed over to other devices yet?

    On the Tit Backup, don't forget to copy the folder off your device if DroidX ROMs leverage partitioned SD cards. Also remember that a class 6 or class 10 will boost performance.

    How can u tell if it is running froyo or gingerbread? I'll have to find the thread of how to go back to the Android 2.2 so I can then root correct. ? Is there any plus of staying with the 2.3.3 ? Or if I go back to the 2.2 and then root with a Rom will I be good. Guess I'm just not fully understanding it all after reading so much

    On the droid x turn off your phone. Now hold the camera button,volume up and power to power up the phone. If this takes you to the bootloader, tell me what version number is it. Don't worry this won't erase anything and you can just do a battery pull to get out of it
