    you need to download droid x/2 bootstrapper from the market
    $2.99 <-- you need it or you cannot install custom roms

    open droid x/2 bootstrapper hit bootstrap recovery
    allow super user access
    hit ok for success
    hit reboot recovery
    scroll with volume rockers to wipe data/factory reset
    select it with the camera button, then confirm it
    scroll with volume rockers to wipe cache partition
    select it with the camera button, then confirm it
    scroll with volume rockers to install zip from sd card, or something like that
    scroll to choose zip from sd card
    find the rom you downloaded
    install the rom
    once install is finished, hit your back button
    then reboot the phone.


    your done.


    any other questions let us know

    I can make you one up... but you have to be premium to add a graphic to your signature, even if you are a guide.

    for the most part yes. Just always be sure to read the Instructions for each Rom.
