I'm no stranger to smart phones, flashing roms, overclocking CPU's, GPU's and memory. I've flashed the rom on my old HTC Touch when they released WM 6.5 etc etc. However, I love my Droid and if it wasn't for the fact that I recently got my wife the Droid2 I probably would have just left it alone...but...I can't. I now want to overclock this sucker and load a different rom..but...I have my reservations. I've seen many threads and articles on how to root the phone and I even helped a co-worker root and flash his Eris but...I have my reservations. My Reservations are: Paid apps I could possibly lose Losing the ability to get OTA updates (even though I think my Droid is finished getting the latest updates now) Possibly bricking my phone and.... Installing new Roms every other day...and then bricking my phone I would love to OC my phone to around 800-900 when I'm using it and down to 200-300 when I'm not and put UD 1.0 (if my phone will let me) so it stops laa..a..gg..g.ginnngg on me at times. My goal is to get familiar with rooting my phone and then tackling the wifes D2 and OC'ing hers to about 1.4 to help reduce some of the Moto app lag she gets. So convince me.... Whisper into my ear how easy it is to Root the phone, how effortless it is to install a new Rom and how awesome it is to OC the phone and have superuser access. Be a salesmen, use your experiences to sway me to tackle these projects. Tell me how you would root the phone and what programs you would use to load roms..oc..etc etc Best of all, the worse retaliation that could happen is the phone locks up and a post with a shows up asking for help on the forum. Then if it Bricks you guys can help me decide what phone I should get next THANKS!!!
