next step is kernels and overclocking. yesterday I had some down time a full battery(and a handy charger), and wifi so I downloaded rom manager and gave the demo version a try. I must say after I read a couple of post about flashing the clockwork mod and 1 about wiping before installing. one boot loop reload. it loaded and is running the "CyanogenMod 6.0 stable with adwlauncher and google apps. so far so good. I get a day off this week and think i might go for ultimatedroid with a low volt 1ghz kernel. as so far the look of it is the most appetizing.
if any one has a suggestions ill take them.
