I rooted my X a few weeks ago and in hopes of having things run faster I decided to try a rom, currently trying to install Apex. I have the premium ROM manager which also installed clockwork recovery. I backed up my current set up, downloaded Apex and unzipped to a folder on my computer and moved it to the SD card on my phone. Running the rom manager I can find the apex folder I created but there are no files to run. I am sure there is a detailed how to for a newb like me but I cant find it. Any help is apprecated.

You don't unzip it, instead, move the folder into some subfolder on the SD card, then boot into clockwork recovery, find the zip by selecting install zip from sdcard, then choose zip from sdcard, then go into whatever folder you placed the zip into and install it.

I have Apex running smoothly now, would like to go back to the way it was. I am trying to restore back to the backup I created but it keeps rebooting the phone right into apex, it just isnt doing anything.
