    Hey guys just decided after getting the most recent update that Im ready to root, use black glass to deodex, etc.. using this guide

    http://androidforums.com/droid-x-al...ing-custom-rom-theme-how-unbrick-droid-x.html

    I got bootstrap recovery and am ready to get started but just wanted to make sure that do root, bootstrapper, and blackglass will work with the newest update. Sorry if this is a dumb question lol.

    Also what specific roms should I go for? I heard that tranq works with the newest update correct?

    Slow down!

    You need to find out what deodexing method works for 2.3.340 so you don't brick your phone. 928's method might work, but we don't know yet.

    Any themes or roms you install have to match your current version. If the first step of the rom directions say to "install the leaked install.zip", you probably have a compatible rom. If they're based on froyo (2.3.15), then you're asking for trouble and might brick your phone.

    There are roms based on the leaked system files, but still use the froyo 2.3.15 boot loader. These will not work for you.

    Ya thats what I was thought. I think I can still root and bootstrap maybe install a compatible rom, but I dono how to go about deodexing. I think Ill just wait for the update to settle in before I go ahead with doing anything :(

    I was looking for manual deodexing instructions b/c I thought by looking at the code I could determine if it was generic enough to risk, but all I found was a package (exe) that you ran and hints of a script that had to be copied in an adb window.

    Someone will post a how-to in the next day or so. Meanwhile get your backup programs setup (Titanium and nandroids?) so you don't have problem with the next OTA.

    Rooted just now with z4root, was super easy. I got confidence once i heard that the .sbf thats out for .320 would work for .340 users.

    Anyways did that, then created a backup with clockwork recovery. Surprisingly easy.

    Now Im trying to find sites that have a lot of customizations to download. Notification bars, themes, etc.. Someone posted a site recently that had a lot of stuff for droid x but I cant remember the name. Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    I used this method to deodex my phone. im on the 2.3.340 OTA and this methond worked fine. Make sure to use the ADB commands I have provided! His post was never corrected!

    [HOW-TO] Manually deodex your phone. - xda-developers

    USE THESE ADB COMMANDS INSTEAD!!!!!!!!!!!

    Completing Deodex:
    adb shell
    su
    stop
    mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/system /system
    cp /sdcard/done_app/* /system/app/
    cp /sdcard/done_frame/* /system/framework/
    rm /system/app/*.odex
    rm /system/framework/*.odex
    exit
    exit
    adb reboot

    Thanks. I figured an adb script would safely deodex 340, but what themes work with stock 340?

    I've got a couple of roms in mind like Blurry 2.3.32 or more likely DarkSlide 3.3 (I like dark), both of which should be updated in a few days.

    I dont know which themes will work with 340. It may be a bit till they get updated to work. BTW, as far a roms go, keep an eye on Ultimate Droid. It has the making of an out of this world rom! I tried the beta and loved it but there were still several kinks that need to be worked out.
