Im assuming your wanting to flash the aokp in this thread http://www.DroidXForums.com/forum/ice-cream-sandwich-roms/45497-rom-aokp-unofficial-4-17-a.html you can install it over vortex no need to sbf just follow the installation instructions and don't forget to flash gapps also.

Yes, as savage said, just do your normal wipes (data, cache, dalvik), flash the ROM, then flash GAPPs.

Nope. I don't think anything has better battery life than vortex.

Its built into the power button options. And like savage said...its hard to beat vortex battery.

If you only got 9hrs on vortex then something was up with your X. When I was on vortex my battery would last ALL day (15+ hrs). Im on gummy and I get about 12hrs on a charge. Vortex is a slick rom. There is a reload (VXR) that came out with some more mods added. Any ICS rom you try will have things that are not working and reduced battery life. You just need to flash it and find out what is broke. If you dont like it restore vortex.

I was reading this whole thread and going to write the same thing csk! six, you probably need to check out your phone. Could be an app sucking all that juice. But you won't get better battery life than vortex. It could sit all night and only lose a couple percent. I'd usually use it a day and half with moderate use before needing to charge and I typically don't let my battery get under 20%.

Hold power choose reboot then the options to cwm are there...if its green writing reboot and update recovery with rom manager (choose 2nd init)
