    Hey, I'm new to the droid X, so new in fact i still dont have it in hand but I have the fedex tracking page up I will have it soon!!!

    Super excited to play around with it.

    Had a couple of questions. I know how to root, i read that but how do I recover to stock if I mess up. I read something about clockwork recovery but dont know if thats an app i need to install or does the phone come with it?

    Is there a do this first page?

    Thanks,

    Ryan

    Welcome to the forum! Click on the #2 link to learn about bootstrap, then the 3rd link to get the file that will get you back to stock. Both of these files, and their guides are essential for every droid x owner to have, in my opinion.

    Oppss, just realized those sigs are only up when I'm posting from my computer. Look in the hacks section of the forum, or hacking help section for the links..

    2.3 as in android version? It can't be done. We have a locked down bootloader which means we can't get custom kernels running on the Droid x.

    If you're talking about rooting the Droid x with 2.3.15/2.3.320/2.3.340 SYSTEM version, then just use z4root.
