I am a slightly more than noobish "rooter", but with the recent announcement that the Droid is "incapable" of Wifi tethering - I have decided to go ahead and use a rooted 2.2 ROM. I plan on following the instructions over at Droid-Life.com, found here : How to: Root Android 2.1 and Install Android 2.2 on Motorola DROID | Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog However, I want to get your expert opinions on which ROM is the best of them all. Since the 2.2 ROMS have been released, I have seen many different ones, and a few of them have had some problems - so which is best? Also, can someone explain to me what the difference is between a Kernel and a ROM? Is the kernel not included in the ROM? I would reference my small understanding (or lack thereof, pending my explanation) of Linux, in that - when you install a different version of Linux or Unix, you are installing a "ROM" of sorts, but the kernel comes with the distribution you are installing. Same concept? Am I wetodded?
