    Hey everyone, just got the Droid X today and this is my first real smart phone so I am a complete newb to it and i was wondering if there were any guides on getting more battery life on 2.2 Froyo and what apps I should initially try to get, and if overclocking/rooting is something that would benefit me.

    Looks like no one is helping you to much so let me be of some assistance. There is a post that i have about apps that people who are new to the droid x and want the most of out their x should get its called"apps to think about for new droid x users" as of right now the post is on the second page of the" Droid X" forums. As for ya battery get"advanced task killer" it will kill off the apps you choose to kill so that your phone isnt always using your cpu. Now only if your not likeing how fast your cpu is or if your interested in custom roms or themes then root.on my post that i have it tells u the best rooting tools. Hope this helps.
