    Rooted yesterday, wondering if milestone and setcpu could work against each other? I ran a benchmark of 1426 yesterday and today its at 945 or something?

    They should work fine together. You will occasionally get an odd low score but it should be fine the next time.

    I removed setcpu, and overclock widget and posted 1550.

    I'm reading into custom roms right now, just a bit freaked out.

    Be sure you make a backup, using the Droid X Bootstrap app, before you install any roms. that way you have a backup that you can restore if you happen to run into problems.

    Yeah, I'm just wondering if it would even benefit me that much to install a rom.

    It is fun to install a ROM, when someone sees you using your phone that has a Droid they always ask what is that! Read a bunch and ask a bunch of questions!

    Benchmark of 945! Most people can think and calculate faster than that. LOL. You need to root, flash a ROM and overclock. See what happens when your Benchmark is 1700+. No Lag, no stutter. Once rooted always rooted. I decided about two weeks ago to go stock, root and not flash a ROM just to see what it was like. Lasted about 30 minutes. The phone was pathetic compared to what I had become accustomed too.
