    • Not sure if you fixed your contacts yet but…if you backed up contacts to verizon you can export to csv file then upload csv file to google or manually. Worked for me.

  1. Very very nice…is their a crt. for it? I tried the crt. from stock .596 and it worked but my battery icon turned green. Also is there a download for a 4g icon? Ive heard of downloads but cant find any that actually worked. Well let me know and thanks for making droid x one of the best phones ever to own…i mean it 🙂

  2. A couple of quick questions: I installed Darkslide and all went well. I like the look of the time and weather widgets you show above. What are they and where can I get them? I use TB Pro. Do I need to sync my apps with Google?


  3. Dude you are the man! If it wasn’t for your website, I would never have done any of this to my phone. I would probably still be stuck on stock froyo. Thanks for everything.

  4. Are you going to be making a video review for this rom like the other ones? Also, I am currently on cm4dx and apparently there are some strange usb bugs where it takes like 5 or more tries to connect to computer (I personally haven’t tried it yet). Is it safe to sbf even though there are known connection problems or should I wait to sbf until it becomes more stable?

  5. Hey I flashed darkslide after sbfing etc and it’s pretty cool. One thing I was wondering is how do you get the widgets like the one in the picture above?

  6. Thanks…I was reading the official thread over at mydroidworld and I just wanted to let you know that BBC posted a patch (on June 24) that added black swype keyboard and it fixed the missing 2 above the w in the multi-touch. Thought you might want to add that to the post but it’s up to you. Also, it seems that BBC is releasing another update for DSX very soon.
