So my dad has a droid x that he has been having problems with and after seeing what I can do with my phone he's asked me to look into doing the same for his. I've looked up the guides all over the internet but I am seeing a lot of inconsistencies that worry me. My phone is an original droid that I have modded left and right(and have some experience modding winmo before this), but I did not originally root it nor install the recovery(I did change it to clockwork later using the app). My concern is there especially with what I have heard of how subsequent motorolas after mine have been locked down. I see programs like z4root claiming to have a simple solution to rooting it, but what about the recovery? Can I just download clockwork recovery and install it from within or is there more to it? I've heard stuff about using bootstrappers which I know nothing about. After that I want to get a custom rom on it, but there does not seem to be the selection that I've come to expect for my and other phones. Is there no cyanogen mod for the droid x or am I just missing it? Though an updated/optimized stock(I guess you call it AOSP or something in the android world) rom may be better for his purposes. I know the phone needs a better kernel than the one it has now. What are the "best" roms for the droid x? His phone is running 2.2.1 from what I assume was the official update, if that matters. I would just like to get some clarification from a person rather than an unspecific guide since this is not my phone I would be messing with. I appreciate any help anyone can give.
