    This was great! One question, so next time I switch roms I can skip the google part in the beginning, I don't have to do that again? I did not know that, lol

    Great post!

    Thanks again DD - just loaded Liberty and now I'm playing with my phone like it was new. I don't think I would have attempted a ROM installation without the video assist.

    In this video it will briefly cover: How to root your Droid X, backup your current applications, backup and restore your system using bootstrap recovery, and how to install a custom ROM.

    Then I saw someone made a black title bar!
    OK well I guess I could do just that
    Oh a leak OK I will do that!
    Oh a new ROM O.K.!

    You youngins do not remember, what 5 months ago when an app that gave you root with "one click" was a super big deal!!
    I was in the same mind frame... then i rooted just to use tibackup then went crazy from there,,, never looked back!
    Also... great video, sent it to a co-worked that is interested in rooting his new X.

    Yes I always skip the Google menus at the beginning till I get all my apps back then I hit the Market. The Market will prompt for you Google login. If you don't depending on how you have your phone set up Google will push apps back to your phone.

    After installing Liberty the camcorder app is missing. Did a reboot with no result. Any advice? Looks like I will need to remove Liberty because the app is no longer on the phone and does not appear in Titanium.

    I think I see what happened - Liberty must have their own camera/camcorder combined app. Is there any way to get the stock versions back on Liberty?

    Glad to see it is working out for you. Over 200 video views in a day and 1/2 not too bad

    Did you find the ROM section? Droid X ROMs

    DB - been playing with the awesome instructions you provided and practiced going back and forth between stock and Liberty. In your video you discuss renaming your backups so you can keep track of them. If you update your video you should mention that if you rename a back up file do not use any spaces. I had renamed the Liberty back up with a dash and a space and when I tried to re-install it gave me an MD5 error message and would not install the back up. Fortunately I found out what I had done by a search.

    Thanks again for the video. I wouldn't have attempted this without your help.
