    Haha.... I just sent him a PM back that took me like 10 minutes to type... hope it wasn't too much info. It was pretty much step by step...

    I would first download ROM Manager from the Market. Because if you don't download it and install the 2.2 that is in the (stock images) section of it, your phone will automatically update with Verizon's OTA 2.2. Which will update your bootloader and you don't want that. I'm assuming you are running 2.1 stock and have it rooted. Once you download ROM Manager you need to download Koush's Bootstrap as well... click "Bootstrap Recovery" at the top and then exit out of it... then open ROM Manager and click on the top button "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery" and then click Droid X and it will download automatically and flash for you. Now click on Download ROM, then stock Images and then Verizon Droid X 2.2. It will download and ask you if you want to wipe data and cache (you can if you want) I didn't. The second option it will ask you is if you want to backup your current ROM. YES! Always backup. Then click OK. Let it do its thing, it will take a while. Once the phone installs the new 2.2 and then reboots it might take a while. Just be patient. If it takes longer than 15 mins, pull the battery and restart. You will be on 2.2 rooted now. And Verizon can't push the OTA to you anymore. This version of 2.2 is deodexed already, which will make it so you can load almost any theme. You said you wanted a sense ui theme... there is one here in the root section under the thread "ROMs and Themes" once you download it it will be in a zip format... go back to the bootstrap loader, click the top button "Bootstrap Recovery" and then wait, it will say success and then click "Reboot Recovery"... once it reboots into recovery. Use the camera button to select and the volume to move up and down. Go to "install from zip"... then find the .zip file you downloaded (do not extract it, just leave it as a .zip file) select it, then click on YES. It will install. Use the power button to back out till you get back to the main screen and use the camera button to select Reboot Now. You should be in business.

    Seriously ignore everything I said before if you are on the OTA 2.2. You will brick your phone doing the first part of my tutorial.
