    I installed the ROM successfully. I am having trouble getting swype to work. Its installed, but not working correctly. I can try swyping across the keyboard, & it shows the trace, but doesn’t input anything in the text field! The border around the keyboard just flashes blue. Any thoughts?

  • thearchiexdm

    I installed the rom…very nice and better than cm7 and ssx in my opinion…the only thing is notice is no app drawer but i can live with that.

  • MustyRusty

    Hey I was wondering how we flash the patch…do we install d2bootstrap or is there a built in recovery like cm7. Also wondering how the weekly updates will work. Thanks–

  • DroidModderX

    Musty… you download the patch then boot into clockwork recovery via rommanager… I believe rom manager will be updated with weeklys

  • bigboip

    I have a bit of an emergency. I try to get my 596 back to froyo using maderstock and it said there was an error. I accidently rebooted the phone and it got stuck in a boot loop. Problem is, I tried holding down the power and home button but that wouldn’t even work! Help! I’m afraid I bricked my phone!

    • admin

      You will have to sbf… just check out my guide its pretty easy..maderstock didn’t work because you were flashing from gb…it only works coming from froyo

  • mandocy

    can not get my contacts to load. also the patch keeps aborting. Got any suggestions? droid x

    • admin

      My contacts load fine..you will have to resync them…if its an fc problem, did you restore system data? Also try redownloading the patch…if its aborting its because its an incomplete file

  • mandocy

    got my contacts to load. will redownload the patch and try again. thanks.

  • thearchiexdm

    Still sporting MIUI…for those who dont like the launcher, you can download from the market or use root explorer and download sony erricson launcher used in ssx rom. Thats the launcher im using and makes MIUI alot better to me. Just thought id share that in case anybody wanted to try.

    • admin

      Not much i dont like about MIUI… but i will be trying out OMGB for a review and maybe go back to MIUI

  • mandocy

    I am new to rom manager and need a little lesson. Do I just select reboot into recovery then install zip from sd card…..etc because I tried that after redownloading the patch and it still aborts every time. HELP!

  • admin

    Mandocy, that is the correct method…try flashing the recovery(to update it if you are possibly on an earlier version).then reboot into recovery…maybe try downloading to your PC and then transfer to your phone…it shouldn’t be aborting possibly still just a bad download

  • mandocy

    I Just tried it again and it worked just fine….WEIRD. Thanks for all your help. I really appreciate it.

  • admin

    Mandocy….glad I could help!

  • Barry

    Thank you for all you do.. Awesome Job!!!!

    Does anyone know if nandroid backups still … the same as other ROMs? I’ve scanned the net and noticed some were having issues with making nandroids.

    Does any know if the process is still as follows:

    (1) flash D2 Bootstrapper,
    (2) Reboot recovery,
    (3) backup.

    • admin

      That is correct…unless you are on cm7 based roms, u can’t use d2bootstrap, u must use built in recovery via powerbutton, reboot, recovery

    Are these ROMS carrier specific? I have a verizon DX but I see “sprint” on some of your videos.

    Did the GB OTA and want to get root back. 🙁

    Thnx for your clear concise instructions.

    • admin

      All the roms on this site are built specifically for the droidx on verizon

  • Jeff

    I loaded the ROM with no problem and it works great. I love it. The only issue i have is my camera doesnt seem to be working. Any ideas? It comes up but hte screen is all blurry but it acts like it is working and will take a picture.

    • admin

      Jeff change the resolutiin

      • Jeff

        THanks….fixed the problem…what is the optimal resolution for teh DX camera?

      • Jeff

        One more question….I noticed it drains the battery pretty well over the course of a day with not much usage…Is this normal? Are there ways to increase battery life?

        • admin

          Battery life is pretty awful on 2nd unit Tom’s if you want better battery life go with a .596 rom like apex or shuji

  • Bushido

    Is there a good app for backing up contacts? Seeing that backup assistant is not included with the MIUI ROM, I don’t want to spend alot of time imputing contacts in one by one.

    • admin

      Titanium backup… but only restore system data if going from a 2ndinit to a 2ndinit or a stockgb to a stockgb

  • mandocy

    Any information out there on a bluetooth fix. Have got it to work temporarily but it wont stick.

    • admin

      not that i can find mandocy

  • chopper82p

    dmx, i downloaded and installed the rom but i try to use any root required app, it says “could not acquire root privileges”. i tried going to superuser and pressing the menu key, but no menu comes up, so i cannot go to settings to enable root permission.

    please help

    thanks

    • admin

      go install busybox from the market that should fix you up

      • chopper82p

        ok, i tried but it says “busy box was not allowed root acess” it also says “this may be an issue with superuser, try opening supersuser and making sure that you are allowing us root acess” this is what i tried doing, but i cannot because when i press the menu key while im in superuser, nothing happens, therefore, i cannot check settings to see if i am allowing root access. what can i do about this? i need to restore my contacts and apps from ti backup, but cant because of the same problem. please help asap

        • chopper82p

          never mind, i figured it out
