HackedAndroidFilter:What custom ROM should I load onto my (already rooted) Droid X? Similarly, can you install Droid apps manually via the file manager on such a modded Droid? What about Google Voice? And so on...
So, I've already followed the instructions here
for rooting and backing up my Droid X.
Currently that really does diddly to improve my experience with the phone. I want to reap the benefits of less blur
, undervolting for increased battery life, root apps (not so much on tethering, however), potentially overclocking, and just more control of my phone in general.
Bearing this in mind there seems to be quite a few
popular roms out for the Droid X. I can't choose between them. Keeping in mind that the above considerations which one should I choose? Will the ROM handle these things in-and-of itself?
I also feel the more popular the better in some ways since that makes me less likely to be left standing alone when/if something goes wrong. If it matters I'm currently on Froyo 2.2 OTA firmware.
PS - Is there a way/guide to install apps manually instead of going through the app store? It seems like you should be able to simply place certain files in the right place on the phone's file structure and you're good to go. I can't seem to find any information on this however so maybe I'm off base here.
PPS - Why does using Google Voice TXT messages count as billable for my message plan's (or lack thereof) credits?
