Hiyas, I'm currently running DarkSlide v4.1 on Android 2.2.1 with kernel 184.108.40.206. I remember when I first upgraded to this version of Android, it ruined my root access because I originally used Z4Root and had to fix that. I'm thinking about wiping the phone and starting fresh, with one of the 2nd Init ROMS and as I'm doing some research, it appears I'm at one of the more ideal setup's to perform this. As a second opinion, I'm correct thus far, right? With the kernel, etc. My main question though is what is the most appropriate way to root my Droid X? I'm fairly technical and continue to deluge myself with research before actually performing such a task and as such, I do not mind performing the root via command line. Is this a cleaner method or is it plain and simple just easier to go back to using Z4Root for this. My last question is, I'm typically a minimalist. I prefer a simple background that I can generally download and apply, so any theme really does not matter to me since I generally ruin it with making most of the icons and widgets have transparent backgrounds. I do however like to have control of many of the functions of my phone. Would CM7 seem to fit the bill nicely? This is the version I'm leaning towards currently. I welcome all answers and opinions on this as there are so many different angles and such to modding the Droid, it's somewhat like asking someone what the best food is, lol. Thanks again folks!
