I don't get it. There are gingerbread bread, gb cm7 ROMS, and cm7 ROMS.
Gb - apex, 596, 602
/
Froyo
\
Cm7 - ssx liquid miui

So is cm7 is a brand of ROM, not a ROM version like gb froyo honeycomb etc.

So you can go from either from froyo but can't go back without a sbf.

And are there any honeycomb ROMS? And where would they fit?

Help is always appreciated!!

3 types, Froyo based ROMs, GB based ROMs and 2nd init ROMs.
cm7 is a 2nd init ROM (as is SSX and Liquid and MIUI)

Cyanogen is a custom version of android its a rom. Right now all cyanogen based roms are gingerbread builds. They just run off our moto kernel for froyo ( about to change here hopefully soon)

596-602 are the official gingerbread builds for the x done by Motorola.

No honeycomb is for tablets only

Okay so how would I make my own? The builder from Moe mod was twelve or something and I think it would be cool to make my own

Read, then read, then go read some more. When you get done that, you'll probably have to go read some stuff.
Good start would be the android dev site
Android Developers (http://developer.android.com/index.html)
good luck


and work quick, or ya get ninja'd

If you do decide to go the route of romming don't make the mistake of kanging someone else's work. If you use someone else's rom as a base (e.g. Rubix Focused 2 uses GummyJar 2.5 as a base) then ask the dev for permission. Apex 1.4.1 uses Liberty 1.5's email as an example and bigxie credits kejar if I recall correctly.

Been seeing some get kinda bent out of shape recently on twitter when their work gets coppied.
