    So I took the plunge and rooted my Incredible a few weeks ago, right as Verizon was beginning the OTA push. I chose to root (Virtuous 2.4) because a) I had no clue when I'd get the OTA push, b) I wanted some of the bloatware off the phone. So...

    ...now what?

    Do I have to keep updating my ROM?

    Is there a consensus best ROM that I should switch to? I see there are so many options for roms out there. Battery life? Which ROM boasts the best battery life?

    How do you over/under clock your cpu?

    I'm rooted, but I have no idea how to remove programs that I can't remove normally. How do you do that?


    I'm sure I've got more questions, but I can't think of them right now. I am sure most of these are addressed somewhere in the forums already, but there is so much information on here that it gets a bit overwhelming, especially when I don't exactly know what I'm looking for.

    Would you recommend just going back to the stock 2.2 and root?

    I really feel like I stepped waaay outside my comfort zone and should have just waited...but then again, I know just enough to get myself in trouble.

    Any and all advice is welcome. Thanks in advance for the help!
