    I used visonary to root my X - worked

    I used droid x bootstrap to create a backup - worked

    I have downloaded a rom and put it on my sd card, going with rubiX 1.8.6

    So from here do I use bootstrap to get into recovery and apply the rom zip?

    Do I have to do anything else before?

    Thanks in advance!

    Each ROM has a different set of install instructions, just be sure to follow them and you should be all set. Did you back up your user apps with Titanium Backup?

    A lot of ROMs will deodex for you or might not require it. Read the instructions on the ROM!

    True but you might as well deodex it the first time by one that is known to do it. I was just trying to make it easier for him :D

    Move to root of SD Card
    Reboot to Clockwork Recovery
    Wipe Data/Cache
    Install Zip From SD Card
    Select rubiXFocused1.8.6.zip
    Install
    Reboot
    Enjoy

    I can't remember if that one deodexes for you or not, that's why I think you might as well just run BlackGlass to be safe, that way you know you are deodexed and you can install whatever ROM you want. Just be sure to wipe data and cache before installing RubiX, after installing BlackGlass. BlackGlass can be found here:
    928Droid Themes for the Droid X
    You want the one that says DeodexEERR

    ok, I will run the blackglass before the rubiX...

    Another ?

    After I get the rom going, if there is an OTA update will that unroot my phone? I know with my D1 when rooted and a OTA came out my phone wouldnt even recognize the update....

    You'll probably be unrooted when there's an update - and whether or not you CAN update depends on what you do with the phone after rooting. Make sure to make a backup before you even install BlackGlass with Droid X Bootstrapper so you can go back to that if you want to update later or just go back to stock.
