    Appears the problem is my battery died during the process. Ugh!

    Heading to VZW to get it charged and then back to use RSDLite to install the original sbf file. This sucks.

    Lesson to all make sure your battery is charged. Triple check it even if you think you had charged it over night.
    I forgot to mention it, but my battery was dead when I tried to get into bootloader when I unbricked. What I did was take an old USB to Blackberry Pearl data cable, cut it at the phone end, stripped it, separated the red and black, then stripped those so the actual wire was exposed. I pulled the DX battery, went out to my car, plugged the USB end into my charger adapter and manually held the positive and negative wire ends against the corresponding copper charger points on the battery (they are clearly marked) for about 15 minutes. Voila - Back in business. The funny part was that this was like super-charging or something. The battery went from stone dead to a 20% charge in 2.1 when I rebooted.

    Could not get out of the endless bootloader loop. Bricked my phone but luckily was able to get VZW to send me a new one and will arrive tomorrow.

    I loved the .3 RubiX and really want to apply this one but really gun shy now.

    Now that we estabalished how NOT to flash a Droid X. Here is my thinking correct me when wrong please.

    Get the new one up and running. Make sure battery is fully charged (HIGHLY IMPORTANT)
    Make sure OS is updated.
    Root
    Install bootstrap program.
    Follow the install instructions on how to install RubiX 0.5

    Sound about right?

    Does anyone know if you can get the Focused email client somewhere. This is perfect and I want to put it on my wife's phone...

    i think it's just the aosp client - you should be able to pull it out of the rom..
    I actually prefer the blur email client myself.
    I guess just because I'm used to it.

    There's only one problem and it is a big one:

    Google calendar doesn't work or sync.
    Same here. Google Calendar/Jorte isn't working for me.

    Wow, after bricking my phone and lucky to get a new replacement I have successfully installed this ROM.

    So far RubiX is the best ROM I have came a crossed. Once I rooted the new device and installed ROM Manager I found the new .5 in the download section and let ROM Manager have the honors.

    Works great.

    unzip the rom, go into systems, app. pull out googleemail.apk
    upload it to system, app on your phone.. set permissions appropriately.
    use root explorer.

    I'm running flyX and I get the same thing once in a while. It may not be a rubiX problem

    the ROM installed a new text client . So you will get dupes of the same text because one is on stock text messenger , and one is from ROM. IF you have titanium backup find the one you dont want to use (i am using the stock) and freeze it . The other one you will leave alone . There is another way to stop the dupes , but it involves changing the names , and im not experienced enough to walk you through that . But the titanium way works like a charm

    I Deleted what i thought to be that test messanger that was in the rom, and i also deleted the launchers because i prefer launcher pro. Im still getting the dupes.
