    id say get an app called droid 2 recovery bootstrap and bootstrap, go into the recovery, and make a backup. then look for custom roms and themes and most have directions on how to do it

    Certainly backing up is key. After that you can go to the different ROM threads and try those out.

    not sure, i think ti only backs up apps and you want to back up everything in case something goes wrong... the whole bootstrap recovery thing should only take like 10 min and id say its the safest way to go, plus youll need a recovery to download different roms anyways

    on fission? i think you have to download the rom by clicking it then boot into recovery using the droid 2 bootstrap. MAKE SURE YOU WIPE DALVIK CACHE AND FACTORY RESET BEFORE YOU INSTALL THE ROM. after that click install from sd card (or something similar to that) and go into the fission folder and the rom should be in there. then install. reboot. theme.

    yeah i actually like underclocking my phone to save battery but thats up to you. for themes im not sure what the choices are on frm, but i love elegant steel: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=914196. also if you want to make changes to the icons on the notification bar without changing the theme go here:MetaMorph – Categories – droidpirate.com
    To use droid pirate:
    1.download metamorph and open it, if you dont already have busybox, install it (busybox installer from market)
    2.download what you want from droidpirate and save them where they are easy to find
    3.mount your phone to the computer and put the files you want into the AndroidThemes folder (if there isnt one make a new folder and name it that)
    4.unmount then open metamorph
    5.pick what one you want and install, it should reboot when done
