    I upgraded from the original droid and now have a few questions as this phone is a little different

    rooted using 1click, thanks for all the helpful posts

    can i just download a rom and install it off my sd card thru rom manager??

    i am looking for a bugless beast type of rom, no frills, fast and practical...any suggestions??

    what else do i need to know to avoid borking this phone?

    thanks for all and any who help

    Very difficult to brick with the 2.2 full SBF around.
    How you apply the rom depends on the rom. Some use rom manager, others use Koush's bootstrapper. You can get it here:
    My Brain Hurts: Droid X Recovery (and Droid 2 too!)
    Or I think there is a donate version in the market.
    With bootstrapper you can make backups, and install .zip files (be they roms, themes or whatever). Personally, I like Fab's ApeX rom (first page of this thread) with NexTheme (really nice system font and black notification bar). But many like ApeX as it is. Try some out, and find what you like.
