    So can I install any rom (Specifically the newest Bugless Beast froyo rom) right now?

    Or do I need to be on 2.2 froyo first, and if so how do I get there?

    Thanks

    Download the free and then buy the paid version ... money well spent in my mind :)
    lot of extra stuff in the paid version.

    Is there a reason why set cpu only goes up to 800mhz? I wanted to go up to 1ghz, but it stops at 800mhz...

    thats cuz the stock kernel is 800mhz
    I like jdlfg's LV1200 kernel and can run it at 1.2ghz all day (but your results may vary) I have also had good luck with chevys also. Just make sure you have a working back up before flashing kernels just in case you have problems. :cool:

    My Droid loves P3's 250-1GHz kernel. Once you flash the kernel, THEN you can set CPU higher than 800 MHz.

    Ooh, I get it now, just because I download a 1.2ghz kernel doesnt mean i always have to run at 1.2 ghz does it?

    And where do I find these kernels?

    Nope. Once you auto-detect in SetCPU it will scale back as needed, and give you speed on demand. You can also set up profiles for different speeds at different situations. I don't because I have no need

    jdlfg v1.3 LV1.2 is what I have but my friends phone wouldnt run it ... you just have to play around and make sure what ever one you choose is a "Froyo" kernel

    dont forget to have a working back up !!!

    Yeah, it appears stuck, can I just power it off and go into recovery mode manually?

    I will probably need to try another kernel too...

    Yup, just go into nandroid and restore your backup. I had to play around with different kernels till i found one my phone liked.
