    A few noob questions about ROMs

    First I would like to say Hello I am new here and will be getting my Droid within a week. I am from just north of Detroit.

    I know Google and the Search function are my friends. I consider myself tech savy and can follow directions. I have been Googling and searching for over an hour. The problem is there is so many posts and threads I am having a hard time filtering it all. I understand Rooting and Root and what a ROM is.

    My question is this - I am panning on rooting my phone on day one. I would also like to OC it to 800. Can any of the ROMs such as Sholes, Burgess including 2.1 be OCed using the evilboot files ect ? Am I confusing ROM with the Kernel ? Also if I can use any ROM can someone give me a brief side by side of the major ROMs , Sholes ect ? Are they all basically the same with diffrent wrappers ? What makes them unique to the others ? . I know alot of people say to try them all . The problem is I have a 12 week old and a 22 month old so my personal time to customize my phone is at a premium . Answers or a link or two will be greatly apperciated. Thanks in advance. Charlie

    I don't have a droid yet, but have been researching to see what to use when I root, and I hear good things about the smoked glass rom also

    I appreciate the reply but it still dosent answer my questions. I would like to learn as much as I can so I can help my friends and others. I am a firm believer of helping my friends and family with computer problems but I make them participate in hopes something will rub off and they can fix the same problem later. I want to learn this phone inside and out but need a little help getting started. Thanks Charlie
