[Video] Installing CM11 on the Motorola Droid X (MB810)

I made a installer app, Why dont you give it a try? (BUGGED ABIT)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Instructions for installing CM11 on Motorola Droid X:
  1. If you're on a custom ROM already (CM, MIUI, LiquidICS, etc.) goto step 6.
  2. Download Droid 2 Recovery Bootstrapper CWM 5.0.2.0, Framaroot.apk, twrp_2.7_cm11_dx.zip, latest gapps, and ROM to sdcard from one of the storages: MEGA, Mediafire, GDrive.
  3. On phone: Settings->Applications(Enable Unknown sources)->Development->Enable USB Debugging.
  4. Install Framaroot.apk, launch it and select "Gimli", reboot you're phone.
  5. Install Droid2RecoveryBootstrap_CWM5.0.2.0.apk, launch it, select "Bootstrap Recovery", grant Superuser access and reboot phone.
  6. Reboot phone into CWM Recovery or if you on stock firmware launch Droid X Bootstrapper and press "Reboot Recovery".
  7. In CWM choose wipe data/factory reset (this will completely delete all your data on phone except sdcard), then install zip from sdcard and select twrp_cm11_dx.zip.
  8. Reboot system.
  9. (It's touch) Recovery -> Team Win Recovery.
  10. In TWRP choose Install and select ROM, then slide, then make the same with gapps.
  11. After install press Reboot system.


Additional:
  • If you want to format data and cache partitions to ext4, you'll need to flash data_cache_2ext4.zip. To revert the partitions back to ext3, you'll need to wipe data/factory reset in stock recovery.
In both cases you loose your files on these partitions.
It at a point turns on and off the display and buttons, its not off, be patient.

Upgrading:
  1. Reboot to recovery.
  2. Select "Backup"
  3. Check all boxes that apply, then swipe.
  4. Once finished, go back to the main menu.
  5. Select "Wipe -> Advanced Wipe".
  6. Check all boxes that apply but "sdcard" then swipe.
  7. Return to main menu again.
  8. Select "Install".
  9. Find and select the latest version of the ROM that is saved on your sdcard, then select "Add More Zips" and find the latest version of Gapps that is on your sdcard, swipe.
  10. Select "Reboot System". Enjoy!

Multiple Roms:
We can have two roms in place of recovery but the only other thing that would work is cm11...
