If you were unable to grab Android 2.2 for the Droid X before Motorola starting harassing websites, then you have missed out on the new lock screen that comes with it (pictured above). While this isn’t a big change, it does come off as slightly more appealing than the original grey version and can be pushed to your 2.1 DX now if you’d like.
*Note 1* – This is for ROOTED 2.1 Droid X owners only.
*Note 2* – This will mess with your framework-res file which can be dangerous and possibly leave you at a standing M logo on reboot. You may need to flash an SBF file to recover should something happen.
*Note 3* – Since you have to be rooted, downloading Koush’s Bootstrap and flashing Clockwork Recovery with a backup before doing this is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
**Phone must be rooted and only for Droid X on 2.1
