    Installing VorteX from SBF .621

    Hi, I bought a Droid X off eBay about three months ago and I'm new to Android in general.
    I'm a bit fed up with the stock firmware and bloatware, so I'd like to install VorteX.

    The system version is 4.5.621

    From what I've read so far, this is what I should do:

    1. Backup my SMS/Contacts etc.
    2. SBF to Milestone X .604
    3. Root (using what method?)
    4. Install Clockwork Recovery (what is this exactly?)
    5. Flash VorteX (how do I do this?)

    Any help appreciated, thanks!

    This will answer all your questions! Important Info for .621 Update!

    Except #4. Clockwork Mod recovery is a different recovery menu that lets you flash zips that aren't flashable in the standard recovery (all of them pretty much, haha) and also make complete backups of your system. It is your friend.


    Check out my themes:

    Simple Sideways - MIUI lockscreen - Simple Sideways Dark - Touch of Green - Vortex RC1 - Christmas theme (in case you miss it) - Vortex RC1

    The clockwork mod you will need specifically is Droid 2 Bootstrapper (ignore the fact it says its for the Droid 2, Droid 2 is basically the same hardware as the X, but smaller screen and physical keyboard, so they use the same Bootstrapper) its a few $$ in the Play Store, but its needed.

    Jeems linked thread will tell you how to root and how to get blur-based ROMs for the .604 hack. In case you missed it, you have to use a special version of Vortex. Its listed in that thread, but if you missed it, the direct link to THAT thread is here (after your on the .604 hack and rooted)

    [ROMs] Multi-ROM Thread - Blur-Based ROMs for those on .621/.604!

    SlothlyDX is also continuing development on Vortex as an offshoot called Vortex Reloaded (VXR) and he's updating a patched version for the .604 hack as well, that can be found:
