    Guys

    Does anybody have step by step instructions to install Apex 1.4.1 on stock Droid X running Froyo?

    At this link - http://androidforums.com/droid-x-al...-droid-2-refinement-ease-use-2-22-2011-a.html, I only see these instructions but don't know what to do with each one

    -Place file on your sdcard. Bootstrap recovery and reboot recovery
    -Select Factory Reset (delete data/cache)
    -Return to previous menu and install .zip from sd card
    -Choose ApeX and install!

    This is fabulous and gives me confidence to go ahead with it. Unlike other posters who said the sticky has step by step instructions, I really didn't find any in the sticky they are referring to

    thanks

    They gave decent instructions but only on the general stuff (run bootstrap, make nandroid) when in reality, I had no idea what those were...

    Walking through that guide made it literally step by step so I knew I was actually headed in the right direction and not just making guesses. Once I actually got through the guide I finally understood what everything was and it all made sense.

    I have since rooted my phone about 5 times with no trouble and can do it in about 5-10 minutes now. Glad I could help and make sure you thank OP on that guide, diskovilante.
