    I recently finally rooted my Droid, last week. I did it by using the DroidRootKit.
    Love t so far, have installed Bugless Beast and UD.

    Question, I am reading about changing kernels for faster speeds. How is this accomplished? I have installed the new ROM's via the clockwork update.zip utility, but cant find solid docs on how to do the kernel?

    Any help would be awesome!

    Place the zip file anywhere on your sdcard and boot into recovery. Click on install zip for sdcard. The easiest way though is to download ROM manager from the market and use that app.

    I personally used the ROM manager and looked for kernals in that. Then I chose to download and RM askes if you want to backup your phone, and then it automatically applies it for you. I have the premium version of RM, can't remember if you can still do it with the free version.

    Most of the download content is with the premium version. The free download section is limited.

    But you don't NEED ROM Manager. Download the kernel, put it on the root of your SD Card, rename it "update.zip" and apply it in recovery. No need to wipe anything. DONE!

    Agreed and in my first post I stated that he could just load it on his sdcard and boot into recovery. Also there is no need to rename it since he is using clockworck recovery.
