    Just wondering if it would really help me that much. I rooted the other day and I have seen a lot of talk about it but I'm not sure on exactly how to do it or if it would even make enough of a difference. I'm running KaosV 38

    Most roms now are overclocked by the developer. I haven't overclocked any roms lately, I would say 6 months. XtrRom is faster then most roms out there, it may be 2.1 but it is how 2.1 should run. I am on nonesensikal 12.5 it is fast and smooth, with none of the issues of kaos. So you don't need to overclock, if you don't know what you are doing you can make your phone slow and eat up the battery. Just search and you will find what you are looking for.

    kaos is OCd by default, you're good. it makes a HUGE HUGE difference because the eris is so underpowered to begin with.

    setCPU is a wonderful program and makes it pretty foolproof and easy to change your profile settings and the governor.

    My only issue with Nonsensikal is that the memory settings are set to close apps in the background pretty aggressively, and I ended up having my launcher having to be restarted after pressing home all of the time. Otherwise, it's a solid ROM. I personally like it more than Kaos. I like CELB most of all, though. If you try CELB read the instructions carefully - you need to flash both CELB and a separate Google apps .zip file before you start the phone.

    You just need to read about the issues with kaos, there are new threads started here and the on going one over at xda. I have never had good results with kaos, your results may vary. If with in 2 hours I have problems that cause me freezing and many reboots then it is gone. Thats why I never stayed with kaos. I had a few bugs with nonsensikal but they cleared up in a few reboots. My problem was random reboots, I found the problem it was jit needed to be turned off. After that it was all good.
