Here's a brand new Rom for GB that I found over on MDW, looks good to me, but since I don't have an X anymore, I can't test it out, so let me know how you like it. :)

So here is the Developers write up, and here is the original thread at MDW:


"ROM-Xcellerated (http://www.mydroidworld.com/forums/droid-x-roms/7952-rom-xcellerated.html#post84302)
This is a Rom based off TBH Gingerbread 596 deodexed and apks I have collected to make an awesome Rom! Xcellerated has all the bloat and most of the Blur removed and some extras added in. I have been testing Xcellerated for two weeks now and everythng has been running well. The Rom is very fast and extremely smooth. If you have any issues, please let me know. Make sure to follow directions and Xcellerated will install without any problems.
There is a 4G (Does not get 4G service) and a 3G version. The only difference is the icons in the status bar.

Directions: This is for Droid X only. You MUST be on GB 596 Deodexed and it must be a clean install. Do not try to install this over another Rom or Theme. Here are detail instruction below if you are not familiar with Bootsrap. You can also drop Xcellerated on your sdcard and install in Rom Manager. After 596 is installed, DO NOT WIPE DATA prior to installing Xcellerated.
Extras Added: ADW Launcher, Launcher Pro, Go Launcher EX, Go SMS, Astro File Manager, Facebook, Google Music, Rom Manager, Dolphin HD, D2 Bootstrap, DX2 Wallpaper, DX2 Bootanimation, Gallery 3D, Custom Keyboard, Titanium, Quadrant Standard, Milestone OC, Amazon App, Custom lock slider, CRT Animation, 10% Battery Mod, Tweetdeck. I will post screenshots later.

Note: If you use another email other than Gmail,(such as yahoo) use the email app. Do not add it in settings/accounts/add account. The Yahoo link will not work.

Note: I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR PHONE AND WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN TO IT WHEN YOU TAKE THE RISK OF FLASHING A ROM. You take that risk. I asume no liabilty. If you don't know what you are doing ask. Always keep the files needed to SBF your phone handy. I can tell you that I have yet to "brick" a droid x and I have done some crazy stuff. I have tested Xcellerated and have resolved all issues that I am aware of.

Working out great so far Bubba, it just doesn't have close to the battery life that the X has. On avg I'm running ~30% less at the end of the day, and that is without 4G service here for another few months, and with all the battery saving tweaks I can find...

Yes, I was pleasantly surprised when I ran across it on MDW, hope it works out great for you all. :)

IMO....

I really don't thing any Battery Life is to be expected with any Phone based on its Proformance and Output of Data...I wouldn't be surprised if the don't see 2 Batteries installed so not to increase the depth for thickness of the future Phones to come...

The Mini Computers do Very Well with how we operate our usages and Demands for Excellents...

I just bought another Battery to keep "Me in Insane" and to use my Truck Charger less....Now..."I can Drink Beer Or Wine and Bark at the Moon"...and I love to "Turn n Burn my phone"...



Chow...Glad your enjoying the Bolt...

You should be able to just wipe data, then reflash the 2 part .zip files from clockwork, reboot, get D2 Bootstrap back (copy it to your sd card for easy access) then go back out to clockwork and flash the deodexed 596 over top, no wiping needed, then reboot, now you are on a clean system and ready to go back out to clockwork and flash the Rom.

And it doesn't matter which file you use 3G or 4G, the 4G one is just an icon change to fool your friends into thinking your X can use 4G service... It doesn't actually work... :)

Sent from my DROIDX using Droid X Forums

Use a file manager (I use root explorer from the market, but super manager does the same and it's free, just make sure to go into setup and check enable root function) find D2 in the /data/apps folder, long press it, select copy, then go to your SD and paste it there.

I flashed this today and I'm very impressed! No FCs. Runs very smooth. Like the circular wifi in the notification bar. I never used the go launcher before and it in itself is pretty cool. I put the 4G on to play some jokes on my iphone friends.

Badass ROM! No issues so far. Zeam runs fantastic. Also running ULV @ 1.25Ghz and Imoseyon tweaks. DX is now better than ever! Battery life seems good so far but will know more over the coming days. Thanks to the dev who created this Mod.

I just installed this rom over Gingerbread .596 deodexed and I backed up all my phone files first throught D2 Bootstrapper.
I flashed the rom and everything is going smooth except now its only showing 15 contacts and the rest of my contacts are missing. Do I need to remove my gmail account that is on my phone then re-add my gmail account? Please could I get some help?

Tried flashing the 4g version and got stuck in a bootloop twice. Ended up having to sbf both times. First time I tried just re-installing deodexed .596 and then put the ROM over it because I was on liberty v.07. the second time I actually started from froyo flashed the two part .596 and then deodexed .596 then the rom and i still got a bootloop not sure what is causing it or how i would go about fixing it besides the obvious sbf. thanks in advance for any help.

Nevermind, I got it now. You have to follow the instructions perfectly and I was not. Although now my facebook contacts won't sync at all. Has this happened to anyone else?

Were all your contacts linked to gmail? Im not 100% but if they were backed up with backup assistant and that was not installed with rom that could be why.

You have to calibrate your battery after flashing a rom. There ia battery calibration in the market that will do that or charge battery until full, go into clockwork and clear battery stats and use it until it dies on its own and charge again until full.

Download ROM Manager and run the Fix Permissions utility. Sometimes that does the trick.

Were you on a fresh tbh 596 deodex install? Try and flash again and do.all the wipes, data and cache, delvic cache. Twice just to be sure before sbf, couldn't hurt.

Deodex Ginger Man is on liberty v08 and ready for some action.....

I had the same issue. Had to sbf twice before I finally got it.

You have to be sure you're on a fresh version of the 2 part tbh .596 system
Then wipe data/factory reset and install tbh deodexed .596 and reboot
Go back into clockwork ONLY WIPE CACHE NOT DATA and then reboot

No more boot loops hopefully. Let me know if this helps.
