I'm not familiar with the X1000 - is a successor to the Xentronics? If
you're processing fine phi-sliced data, you may be able to use XDS (from
Wolfgang Kabsch, kabsch at mpimf-heidelberg.mpg.de) if you've got fine
phi-sliced data. Or maybe SAINT from Bruker will process the frames; maybe
d*Trek from Jim Plugrath (jwp at msc.com) at MSC...

If you're trying to process thick sliced data (i.e. oscillation angle >
2*{mosaicity + beam divergence}), you could try MOSFLM, but it doesn't
support the X1000 by default; you'd need to supply all the detector
parameters (number and size of Pixels in X&Y, detector swing angle,
orientation of oscillation axis {horizontal? vertical? other?}, etc,
etc...) and have distortion corrected images.
