    :thinking:now that there is a functioning DX2 boot strap apk, is it safe to try something simple like the boot logo changer or themes for an X1 model? :thinking:Really would like some expert advice before I screw up my phone:eek:

    keep in mind most x1's are running gingerbread, whereas X2 is still stuck on 2.2 Froyo

    so what are you asking? can you use the x2 bootstrapper for the x1? = no
    can you use the x2 bootstrapper to import x1 themes? = unless you want a brick go for it
    can you use the x2 bootstrapper to change the bootlogo from a x1 theme = possibly

    Yeah, now that I went back through and actually took time to completely read (yeah I'm lazy sometimes lol), I see that. Sorry.

    I now have a question for the OP: Since we have the D2 bootstrapper, and the DX bootstrapper, why would you want to use the DX2 bootstrapper? Is there some sort of functionality in it that the other 2 bootstrappers don't have?

    he has an X2 he wants to know certain files from the X1 will be successfully flashed to the X2

    he cant use the DX/2 Bootstrapper for his X2

    DX and D2 Bootstrapper do not work on X2, or at least on mine

    I have not heard any news that says the DX or D2 bootstrapper will work on the DX2, but I could be wrong.

    the dx2 bootstrapper shouldnt work on the x1 or d2, if it did, then everything that went for the dx1 will easily move to the dx2

    It would be nice for those that went from the DX to the DX2, but oh well.

    well, I am going to hold off for now, I am not ready to take the risk until more research has been done.

    I am still not confident that the SBF file is stable enough to pull me out of a bricked phone.

    i would hold off until there are boot logos and animations for the dx2, though i imagine they may be able to be installed by the same method as the X1
