    For some reason, not all of them saved to my gmail account. I must have had that unchecked the whole time I had the phone un-rooted. I guess I'll just have to manually edit them.

    Can you e-mail me the full version? borinka99 [at] hotmail

    Thanks!

    So, now that I have the ROM manager, I won't have to do a factory reset if I switch between ROMs? Is it easy to go back and forth?

    Also, if you have any other recommendation for rooted apps or ROMs, send them over.

    Unfortunately you're gonna have to wipe with pretty much every ROM you switch too.

    I'll send the .apk file to ya, if you need help installing just let me know. If you don't have it, download droidx bootsrapper. That and titanium backup are the 2 most important.

    That sucks about wiping. Am I doing something wrong with Titanium? I have the free version, and it takes forever to backup because I have to click install for each app. Same if I do it from appbrain, I still have to click allow for each app. Is there a faster way?

    Got the e-mail, thanks! I have the bootstrapper.

    Do I really need astro file manager to run .apk files? I was able to run the z4root apk with just the regular file manager that comes with the phone.

    If the regular file manager works that's cool. I just like Astro. Sometimes that's why they want you to buy their programs. I think the full version of titanium you can one click and done.

    I see. In that case, I might just buy the full version. It would save a ton of time.

    The free version of TB doesn't allow batch restore of apps. You should be able to batch save though (or you used to be able to). It's well worth the few bucks if your rooted. Menu > Batch > RUN-Backup all user apps. BTW, when restoring apps across different roms do NOT restore apps+data. Restore apps only or your begging for problems.

    ES File Manager and Root Explorer are also good file managers.

    I know you've already completed this step but rooting the phone is the only risky part. On some phones even that is simple but I had to go through a 15 step process to get full root on my Evo as the nand partition was locked. That was before unrevoked3 came around with an easy root solution.

    Once you have root just make sure you nandroid before installing a new rom or kernel. If you have good nandroid you can always restore your phone to that state so there is little if any risk in bricking it. There is a risk in bricking your phone when you flash new radios, pri's, etc (assuming this is possible with a locked bootloader) so make sure any radios you've downloaded are good (use ManD5 to check the md5 sum of the file). The absolute best source for rooting information is found at xda. Click on the sub-forum for your Droid-X and everything there is to know can be found. Droid X Android Development - xda-developers

    The kernel will have the biggest impact on your battery life and many roms will come cooked with a custom kernel. Kernel's can overclock, underclock, undervolt, use HAVS, CFS, BFS, etc. That being said I believe the bootloader on your phone is locked so I doubt you can flash a new kernel. FWIW, I saw that Moto released a statement that in the future they'll be more friendly towards the dev community (something HTC is notorious for). Maybe custom kernels will come your way in the future.

    At first I did the "restore apps only," but that doesn't bring back my old texts (I like to keep those around). Is there another easy way to backup all my old texts so that I don't have to restore data? Or can I manually restore just the data for texts from Titanium?

    Thanks for the info, I'm watching a youtube video on how to nandroid now. Going to do that and then probably switch the the Apex ROM.

    Also, is there a way to temporarily change the market settings so you can just click "perform installs" from appbrain and have them all load without having to "allow" each one?
