first off, though this may be my first official post, I have used your theories/solutions successfully many a times during my darkest hrs with my dx, and for that i thank all of you.
before i explain my NooB problems, my About Phone shows the following information:
system version: 4.5.602.MB810.Verizon.en.US
Model number: DROIDX
Android version: 2.3.3
baseband version: BP_C_01.09.13P
Kernel version: 126.96.36.199-g34b306d
Build number: 4.5.1_57_DX5-32
ERI version 5
PRL Version 52363
OK, well basically I have tried flashing roms like MIUI and DarkSlide with no success. Both seemed to have installed properly but then during reboot gets stuck on the red motorola symbol forever, and in which case the only known solution was to SBF back to froyo, update using Verizon's system update (to get GB bk), then root using the one click root for droid3 (which works like no other on the droidx).
To flash these roms, I would go to droidx bootstrap, click bootstrap recovery, then go to rom manager, flash clockworkmod recovery, then I reboot to recovery from rom manager, wipe cache/data (and dalvik cache) and factory reset, apply the rom zip via sd card on recovery, and I reboot (then get stuck with red symbol during rebooting).
So my questions are, are there roms specifically for 4.5.602? I noticed some roms require .340, does this mean that these roms wouldn't work on my system? are there roms available for .602? when searching for roms, should I be looking for .602 roms? because i cant find any.
any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. as you can tell I lack a lot of basic knowledge here, and have read up on as much as possible. also could my mistakes be in the rom manager, when selecting my device? would my device be motorola droidx or droidx 2-init? I read up on the 2-init thing but got thoroughly confused and still do not know which option i should be selecting.
thank you all once again for your help!
