Earlier today we got a glimpse of the Droid X running the custom Sapphire ROM, definitively proving that the task was possible. The video, however, did not come with a copy of the ROM and installation instructions in tow. Enter Birdman, a Droid hacker hard at work on the X, who has released the first ROM image for the handset all thought was as unbeatable as Alcatraz to the public.

The ROM in question isn’t the same Sapphire version seen previously. It instead is a brand new custom image known as FlyX, which is currently in release candidate status. Just because it isn’t a final release doesn’t mean you won’t want to check it out, and if you decide you want to take the plunge head over to DroidLife for full instructions. You will need a handset that is already rooted and running the leaked Android 2.2 build to get things up and running, but chances are if you are even considering the new install you already fall into that category.
