How do people get such crazy customized homescreens?
I dont get it. Like I know it has to be rooted, but after you root then what? How do people make it looks so awesome and clean like this?

besides that, its a combination of different launchers, customizing icons, widgets, a whole bunch of stuff. check out the post your screen thread that is stickied to this forum. if you see something cool, just ask the poster and theyll tell you what apps/widgets/theme they used

You don't have to be rooted to have creative home screens. You can dl Launcher Pro Plus and the Launcher Pro Icon Pack ... and that will give you an absolutely AMAZING choice of widgets and home screen layouts.
THEN, you should follow this same sticky thread about home screen customizations to find specific apps that give you what you prefer.
The X isn't like the BBs, where themes provided the variety in life. Rather, with the X and LP+, you can create your very own "look" that can change with your mood. Check out the thread ... you will be inspired!

The home screen you linked doesn't require root at all except for the black task bar. Otherwise it's just a couple of minimalist text widets for the time and battery percent, and Launcher Pro with custom task bar artwork (of which a ton is freely available on the Launcher Pro site).
For example, this was my how my phone looked last week (unrooted):
I had the task bar hidden at the time. This week I have a football-themed screen and a different task bar, but fundamentally it's the same setup (despite a very different look).
