Q1: How can I tell if I have a Motorola Droid X?
1. Check in the battery compartment, under battery, on the label, Model is in the middle of top line, the Droid X is model MB810.
2. In the software Menu>settings>about Phone>system version will include MB810.Verizon.en.US
3. Bootloader Version: Power Off>Hold both volume buttons> Bootloader Version is 30.04
Q2: What is the newest Stock Android Version and System Version?
Because of the locked bootloader a bootstrap is needed to install and access a custom recovery. See Bootstrap explained by Koushik Dutta (Koush) the Droid 2, X, & 3 bootstrap creator . Which version of bootstrap should I use? In most cases Droid 2 Recovery Bootstrapper CWM 22.214.171.124 is best option. see [Kitkat] CM11 Android 4.4 for the Droid X
