    Are you wanting to flash a ROM that you have picked or are you trying to search for a ROM? If you have the ROM you want on the root of your SD card, things might be easier if you just install in bootstrap.

    Rom Manager isn't the distribution model of choice for the droid X/2. You'll need to do forum searching and independent ROM Apps for all the goods.

    Youtube and droidforums.net both hold much valuable information. I haven't flashed a custom rom yet. I have come to realize that preparedness is key and have to be abolutely sure of what your doing and all precautions are put into place. We've got ourselves some exspensive stuff here and wouldn't wanna to **** it up! Haha.

    to enable the boot strap all you have to do is download it and allow it to install from the market and then open it. The choose "bootstrap recovery". If you are rooted it will request superuser permissions which you allow and remember. Then it will say success. You now have a bootstrapped recovery image

    first thing you should do is make a backup. their is a good explaination in another thread labeled "backup." after that depending on what you swith to you'll likely have to wipe data and cache between ROMs, so if you don't want to lose all of your app settings and data, i'd recommend downloading titanium backup and creating one of those. Also if you are using launcherpro and you don't want to reconfigure it again, make sure to do a backup of that through the launcher pro preferences.
