And what we have here today is a video of a custom ROM booting on the Droid X. Well, that may depend on what your definition of “custom ROM” is. This is a customized ROM, there’s no doubt about that, however the kernel is untouched. As having modified it would have made the phone only boot into recovery mode, as we previously reported.
So if, in your opinion, a “custom ROM” needs a modded kernel to be worthy of that name, this isn’t one. If, however, you’re happy with whatever non-Verizon sanctioned customizations you can get on your smartphone, you may want to stay tuned for this.
As of now, the developer working on this project has only made this video public showcasing his progress. Expect the ROM to be released at some point soon.
