move to milestone x to keep from confusion...

to root the 604... you can use the zurgrush method there's a few one click's that will work
here's a guide to help

Try this http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/droid-x-sbf/23638-linux-solution-your-windows-rsd-lite-problems.html

The link at the bottom is .604. MAKE SURE to use the .604 one. This file is larger and you will only need the root option, don't worry about the SBF. But this way it wont require drivers or anything.

There are instructions in the thread, but basically, once you download the file, you burn the .iso to a disk and boot your computer from the disk. You then follow the on screen instructions, only select the root option for your needs.

So your phone is normally on verizon? Ok, well for future reference there is a direct root method for .621. But for now just use the .604 linux iso and do the root option. After its done going through everything you will have superuser present as a new app. Also if you wanna make sure it worked just download "root checker" from the play store and run it... After you are rooted take a look here http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/gingerbread-roms/44928-roms-multi-rom-thread-blur-based-roms-those-621-604-a.html for how to get your phone back to a true x.

Ok so...for the rom, your going to want to download the Rom and the Gapps, verify them with either a md5 checker or astro file manager can as well. Place them on your sd card. If you are using an app like titanium backup, backup all your apps and app data only. you will wipe your system. Then boot into recovery, make a nandroid if you haven't made on yet, that way in case anything has happened, you can go back. Now with the rom and gapps on your sd card, boot in recovery, and follow the directions of the OP from the rom that you want to install..Usually a format system/ format data/cache wipe dalvik cache, install rom, install gapps, reboot, and profit. Sorry not extremely detailed, atm, post up if you got more questions.

Just a detailed description to help out


What You'll Need
____________________

-Root Access
-Know your System Version (Settings>About Phone)
-Titanium Backup (A pro Key isn't needed but I recommend one)
-Bookmark Backup
-Droid 2 Bootstrap
-3Gigs free space on your SD card (estimate).
-A Rom of your Choice:

--Liberty is a great rom. Especially for someone who is new to this whole process, as you can put whatever Blur you want back in!
--MIUI is an excellent rom. It offers SUPERB customization, a beautiful interface, and awesome themes!
--CyanogenMod is another excellent choice. It offers superb customization on top of an AOSP experience.
--Any other Rom that is running on your System Version (Settings>About Phone).


____________________

Before We Flash
____________________

- Root your phone using the above link as a guide. (It's as simple as downloading a small program on your computer and plugging your phone in.)

- Install all of the applications Above. If you previously purchased Droid X Bootstrap, you may install This instead. It was compiled using the Droid 2 Bootstrap Source and will work perfectly.

- Boot into ClockworkMod Recovery using Droid 2 Bootstrap. Press: "Bootstrap Recovery" (if a SuperUser permission request pops up, accept it) and then "Reboot Recovery."

- Navigate to the "Backup and Restore" option with your volume keys and select it with the camera button. Select Backup. Let the process run.

- Once the Backup is complete, Navigate to the Reboot option.

- Open "Contacts" on your phone. Press the "Options" hard-key and find the "Import/Export" option. Export your contacts to your SD card.

- Open "Titanium Backup" and press the "Options" hard-key. Then press "Batch." Run the "Backup all User Apps" tool and wait for the process to complete.

- Open "Backup Bookmarks" and backup your browser bookmarks.



____________________

Installing Your Rom
____________________

- Make Sure the Rom you want to install is using the same System Version as the one you're currently on. The Cyanogen "Official" Builds are actually still on froyo while the newest versions are on 4.5.605 or 4.5.602 (either work).

- Put the Rom's .zip on your SD card.

- Use Droid 2 Bootstrap to reboot into recovery again. (Bootstrap Recovery > Reboot Recovery)

- Do a factory reset from within this menu.

- Navigate to "Install zip from SDcard" and select your Rom. Say "yes" to the install and wait for the process to complete.

- Reboot. Congratulations! Your phone should now boot up into the new Rom!

You will start all over, no saves from apps like games.
Search in dx development for Rom's based on gingerbread

... Download the zip file to your computer. Plug your phone in, navigate to my computer - SD card (mot f or mot g I don't remember. Look at the storage size.) Double click to open the appropriate one. Drag and drop.

To get to USB mass storage mode you do it from your phone when its plugged into your PC. Go to the notification bar area at the top of your screen and change it there. If your PC isn't recognizing your phone the drivers aren't installed.
