    Omg, this is big. Wow. I figured I would never be able to get further than Froyo w/Blur on this phone. Now I can at least hope!

    I'm an Android noob, does the Droid X use the "original Motorola kernel" or the newer version? Will this matter?

    Looks like this is loaded through an ADB based "Open Recovery"

    That would first have to be ported over to the DX before we could load any ROMs.

    The 'original' kernel they're referring to is the stock kernel (I think), since the encrypted bootloader doesn't allow flashing new kernels.

    This sorta detracts from Froyo a bit, since it comes with 2.6.32 kernel, and 2.1 has the older 2.6.29

    Something is better than nothing, I suppose. Who knows, maybe we'll be able to get stock Froyo on the DX using this method...

    I still don't like not having an SBF or a nandroid backup.

    I agree with you, not having the SBF really makes doing almost anything pretty sketchy because almost anything can send the DX into a bootloop.
