    Just rooted my stock 2.1. Installed Rom Manager, and Titanium Backup. I have made backups w both titanium and with clockwork via rom manager. I have d/l'd a 2.1 BB kernel (800) I wanted to try before going any further.

    Questions:

    1) I don't see any rom's in the download rom section of RM
    2) Do you need to run setCPU w/ oc'd kernels? (assume yes w/ 2.1, thought I saw something about 2.2 it being optional, can't find that post now)
    3) well hell, I don't remember the 3rd question.

    Thanks in advance

    1) You need ROM manager premium for most of the downloads.
    2) It depends on the ROM, with Bugless Beast you don't need SetCPU but people still prefer to use SetCPU because of the profiles you can setup (ie when your battery is low you can tell it to not go over a certain speed).

    I have rom manager premium but I'm still not seeing anything.

    I just loaded the BB 800 kernel on my stock rom with root. SetCPU is showing scaling, but it is telling me it does not have root access. Should I reapply the root patch?

    Edit:
    I had to reapply the Root patch to the BB kernel.

    It sounds as though you are having a root access problem. Do you have superuser permissions app in your app drawer? Also if you're running stock 2.1 I don't think a different kernel is going to give you overclock without the ROM being deodexed, I'm not positive though.

    Rom manager is acting ok now as well.

    The BB kernel on the stock rom is working beautifully. Now on to a complete custom rom. WOOHOO.
