I used super1click...here is some info that may help as well...

Installing a Custom Rom on your nTelos Milestone (Droid) X
As always, I am not responsible if your device breaks.
Requirements: Make sure you are on the latest 2.3.5 Gingerbread build.
Also you can get the nTelos 2.3.5 sbf file from here: http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/milestone-x-support/40938-dire-need-sbf-2-3-5-ntelos-5.html.

Installing the Rom
A. Download the rom
a. For miui download the zip from this link: http://roms.miui.us/shadow/MIUI.us_Shadow_2012-01-08-Wizard0f0s.zip
(The main forum is [ROM] MIUI.us DefX 2012.2.1 - Bootmenu Update, 1% Battery, and No Charge LED (http://forums.miui.us/showthread.php?12643-ROM-MIUI-us-DefX-2012-1-8))
b. For liquid Gingerbread download this zip: http://api.viglink.com/api/click?format=go&key=df151685658191b4520187383cbc1752&loc=http%3A%2F%2Fliquidsmoothroms.com%2Fnode%2F73&v=1&libid=1327523835164&out=http%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2Fpgjh9B&ref=http%3A%2F%2Fliquidsmoothroms.com%2Fnode%2F1&title=Motorola%20Droid%20X%20(Verizon)%20Smartphon e%20%7C%20Liquid%20Smooth%20Roms&txt=DOWNLOAD%20NOW&jsonp=vglnk_jsonp_13275238425901
(the main webpage is Motorola Droid X (Verizon) Smartphone | Liquid Smooth Roms (http://liquidsmoothroms.com/node/73)
c. Don’t unzip it. Put the entire zip in a folder on your SD card. (So for the miui rom I have it under /miui/filename.zip on my sd card. It doesn’t matter what you name the folder. Just put it in a place where you can find it.)
B. Boot into recovery
a. Make sure you are rooted. (If you need help with this just let me know. I used superoneclick)
b. From your phone download “Droid 2 Recovery Bootstrap” from the android market. (https://market.android.com/details?id=com.koushikdutta.droid2.bootstrap&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS5rb 3VzaGlrZHV0dGEuZHJvaWQyLmJvb3RzdHJhcCJd)
c. Launch the app and click the top button “bootstrap recovery”. If prompted allow it to have superuser privileges.
d. Click on “Reboot Recovery.” Your phone will now reboot into android recovery.
C. Flash the Rom from zip
a. From here most would recommend doing a nandroid backup which is basically a backup of your entire system.
i. Using the volume keys scroll down to “backup and restore.” Select it with the camera button.
ii. Select “backup.” This will take a few minutes but it will backup your entire system. Theoretically if you get messed up doing this process you can go to “restore” and get your old system back.
b. Using the volume keys to move up and down and the camera key to select, scroll down to “wipe data/factory reset” and select it. It will want you to confirm it so scroll down and hit “yes”.
c. Next scroll down to “wipe cache partition” and select it. Hit “yes” to confirm.
d. Now you are going to scroll down to “advanced” and select it.
e. Another menu will pop up. Scroll down to “Wipe Dalvik Cache” and select it. Hit “yes” to confirm.
f. Go back to the main menu (do this using the back button on your device).
g. Scroll down to “install zip from sdcard” and select it.
h. Select “choose zip from sdcard”
i. It will pull up a list of folders on your sd card. Scroll down to the folder with the .zip file we downloaded earlier and select it.
j. Select the zip file you downloaded earlier for your rom (either miui or liquid). Select “yes” when prompted.
k. It will now install the rom. It may take a few minutes. When it is done hit your back button until you get to the main recovery screen.
l. Select “reboot system now”.
m. Your phone will now reboot onto the new rom. It may take a few minutes the first time but it should work fine.
n. If it doesn’t get past the red ‘m’ after about 5 minutes then take out the battery and try again. If you still don’t have any luck you’ll have to sbf and try again.

2.3.5 is either milestone or rom'd

Rooting with that Pete's root and zergrush are all very well known for rooting it. Android version doesn't matter in this instance because its gingerbread. it all has the same exploits and until your carrier puts out the latest 621 (for dx no clue what it will be in the mx) you can root with what's listed above.
