    My first custom ROM

    I recently installed my first custom ROM on my DX after many months of debate. I just knew that I would turn my phone into a very expensive paperweight. However, now that I have done it I love my phone even more. I'm running darkslide and the battery life and overall performance of my phone is 10 times better. I just wanted to start this thread to encourage all who are intimidated with ROMs that it is super easy and well worth the effort.

    Congrats! And believe it not, you almost have to try harder to brick your phone! As long as you follow the instructions step by step, you will not have any major problems. I have flashed a few ROMs and the .sbf a few times and have had no issues with bricking my phone.

    It is well worth it to flash a ROM, as it does make the DX way faster and more functional. And it gets addicting after a while lol

    And always remember to read, read, read, and read some more!

    Haha lmao. That's too funny. Liberty is my 3rd flash, I doubt my last, but Liberty rocks and will be some time before I try a new one.

    Your first flash is never your last flash!

    Edit.. Found it. Disregard question that used to be here.

    Congrats Musicman... I'm still on the porch but if I get the time to mess with it, I'd like to try liberty.. I'm all about performance gains.. Especially battery.
