    Ok, so im new to this but managed to root my phone and I think it would be cool to get custom ROMs and theme but in order to do this, my phone (droid x v2.2.1) needs to be deodexed, right? So my questions are these: can I even deodex now with 2.2.1 out? How hard would this be? Are there guides on this forum?

    All the big dogs as far as Roms go do this for you so it is a non issue. I'm not sure of a Rom that doesn't do this for you now?

    If your plan is to install a rom there is no need to deodex prior as the rom will deodex for you upon installation, if you don't want a rom but just want to theme or mod a little then you will have to manually deodex prior to doing that, here are some guides for you

    Keep reading and keep asking questions, you'll be flashing stuff all over the place in no time.

    So much knowledge here and friendly people.
