    My dad gave me his "rooted" DroidX and I'm not sure how to go about updating the OS.
    System: Version.2.3.340.MB810.Verizon.en.US
    Model: DROIDX
    Android: 2.2.1
    Baseband: BP_C_01.09.07P
    Kernel: 2.6.32.9-g55626e1 w30471@il93lnxdroid08 #1
    Build: vzw
    ERI: 5
    PRL: 52280

    When I turn the phone on, it boots to clockworkmod recovery v2.5.0.6 and I have to press the camera shutter button to continue booting the phone. My dad can't remember what he did to "root" the phone.

    From reading/research, I'd like to run a mostly stock rom minus the bloatware (not sure which rom is good/best), otherwise plain gingerbread would be fine. I'm not sure where to start since I don't really know what he did to "root" the phone.

    Oh, and even after charging the phone overnight, it only shows 80% charged. Not sure what that's all about.

    Thanks!!!

    well bud what we need to know is if you are on a rom right now, and if you arent but just rooted, you need to just perform a software update. and once it is done you will no longer be rooted, and you will be on stock gingerbread, from there you can reroot, and find you the rom of your choice in the rom/theme list, liberty, and apex are the best.

    What's the easiest way to tell if I'm on a rom? I see a folder named Fabolous_ApeX_V1_3_1 on the SD card.

    Thanks for the help!
