Awhile ago a video popped up from Init 2 Winit the developers of Boot Manager of there app in early alpha stage. Flash forward to Friday the 30th and here it is. They have tweeted that the app will be available for us x users this day. Also as a side note I seen them say that once they get this going other phones that use 2int roms should follow suit so the droid3 and bionic might soon me following. For those that don't know what boot manager is, it is the ultimate tool for flashaholics it allows you to have 4 other roms available and can switch between them wish a simple reboot. No more going into recovery and wiping loading and rebooting. Here is the link to there forums and a vid of the droidx running this app. It is availble on the market and will be updated the 30th to support our x. So if you dl it to day or before the update it will say not available. Init 2 Winit Forum • View topic - Progress on the Droid X (http://forum.init2winitapps.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=92) I am not affiliated with them by any means. I just think this is yet another awesome thing for us x users to just make it even harder to upgrade to anything else. In my opinion the x is still a top phone and I personnely have no desire to go anywhere.

It's not only for 2nd-init ROMs. You need to have a 2nd-init ROM loaded on your phone initially, due to the way the 2nd-init process loads. Other than that the 4 other ROms can be 2nd-init or Stock, they all just need to be on the same kernel (since our bootloaders are locked).

I can't wait for this update to drop!!

Ok dumb question, how is this different than just flashing a backup of another ROM?

You don't have to flash the ROM and restore the back up, you just hit a button and you boot into a different ROM.

Allegedly some time today... You can buy it from the market, but it currently does not support the DX. There will be an update when they get it finished for us.
