Cyanogen Mod 7 for Droid X in Beta

For those who are aware of the Rooting community on Android, you know that the CyanogenMod ROMs tend to be some of the best. Unfortunately, due to the locked bootloaders (which means you can’t change the KERNEL .. which means you’re limited to customization to the phone) in the Motorola phones, we have not had the pleasure of Cyanogen modifications for the Droid X….Until now.

As of 2 days ago, there is a Beta out for CM7 for the Droid X.

Additionally, P3Droid using the software from Team Black Hat have created a simple one-step process for loading CM7 onto your phone that includes the sbf process (sbf tutorial) as well. This means that regardless of your custom ROM, kernel or version, you can install this.

I have really found DMX’s videos about customizing the Droid X to be useful and he goes over CM7 installation here:
