    Question New Member with a bloated X2 needs advice please. S.O.S.

    Hi there I recently bought a Droid X2 off Ebay that was once a Verizon phone. It is Android version 2.3.5 It is build number 4.5.1A-DTN-200-18
    It came with an activation number/card for Straighttalk.
    I successfully activated it with Straighttalk and it works great. The problem I have is this: I desperately want to get rid of all the bloatware!
    I am very computer saavy, but my smart phone skills are, well, lacking. I have searched about rooting, but I am worried about messing up my service.
    I would really appreciate if anybody here can tell me/link me to a step by step that won't turn my phone into a brick.
    I got a really really good deal on this phone, and love my Straighttalk service and it's price, but the phone just bogs down with all the bloatware.
    I just joined this forum and I will be here all day searching about, so if anyone can point me in the right direction, I would really appreciate it.
    Thank you and Happy 4th of July.

    First need to root see [How to] Root 2.3.5/1.3.418
    .
    Then you can use a File Manager like Root Browser to remove bloatware.
    [REF] BLOAT REMOVAL/INSTRUCTIONS UPDATED 8/4/11
    .
    or install a custom rom like Eclipse see Install BSR and installing Eclipse 2.3
