Hi All~ I am a noob to the Moto Droid X, I've had it about a week now coming from the HTC Eris. The Eris was a nice little android phone and I was very comfortable with flashing new ROM's, running gscripts, backing up nandroids, etc... The main reason I started was to get better battery life I would like better battery performance with the X too. So now my love affair starts with the Droid X, now this is how a smart phone should be!!! I have easily run the Z4root and bootstrap recovery, put LPP back on, have Titanium Backup installed (free), SetCPU w/profiles enabled.....just the basic stuff. I would like to try a custom ROM or Theme, but I don't really understand the difference between the two.....does a Theme compliment a specific ROM? Can I just install a Theme over the stock rooted 2.2? (black notification bar). What is a popular beginner ROM/Theme that is most stable? I have downloaded the SBF, but I really don't want to have to use it. On the Eris I always had to wipe data/cache before every new ROM, do we have to do this on the X as well? My understanding is to boot into recovery and select the "Mount" menu and then "Format data/cache", but I don't see that as part of all ROM instructions. I am enjoying reading through the posts & sticky's here, thanks to all. It is apparent the Droid X takes a little higher education than the Eris...I'm sure I will catch up soon.
