    I have rooted, updated to 2.2, and have the updated bootstrap, but when i go to make a backup with rom manager after hitting ok when it asks to name the file it does nothing. I also downloaded flyx, but once i get to the point where i check "backup rom and wipe data" i select both, hit ok and it says to hit ok to reboot into clockworkmod recovery but does nothing. not even turn off the phone.

    double check you have the updated bootstrap and also try pressing flash clockwork at the top of rom manager
    and also make sure you have pressed bootstrap recovery in the bootstrap app

    try this one here

    Did you run the Droid X Bootstrapper App and click the top option "Bootstrap Recovery"?

    Then in rom manager did you click "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery" And select Droid X?

    Do you still have Root?

    well then you need to uninstall bootstrap and clear its permissions in the superuser app then reinstall the one I posted earlier and then press bootstrap recovery

    yeah it doesn't seem like you are rooted, you have 2.2 installed already right
    and can you use any other root app
