    Whats the difference between...

    What is the difference between:

    ClockworkMod: A recovery program that is often used to apply updates, ROMs, or create a back up or restore a backup file

    and the Bootstrap program?

    What is the difference between:

    Kernel: The govenor of the CPU useage and Battery output, one can upload certain Kernals to achieve greater performance speed of their device at the cost of some battery life

    and

    Overclocking: Speeding up the CPU past the factory presets to achieve a faster and more responsive device

    Which are the more stable and capable programs??

    The bootstrapper is just a way to access clockworkmod recovery on phones that can't fully flash an alternately recovery. I'm not a kernal doctor as I've never had a phone where you could change kernals but some kernals allow you to overclock the device. However if you have a newer moto device, you overclock without changing kernals.

    Just to add to what Spaz said, kernels can only be changed on devices with UNlocked bootloaders, and they allow you to achieve higher overclock speeds than the stock kernel is capable of. For instance the stock D1 kernel only overclocks to 800 megahertz, but I am running a slayher kernel that allows me to overclock to 1.1 gigahertz. What kind of kernel works best varies from user to user.

    Recovery: RZR 2.0.1
    Rom: Simply Stunning 5.6
    Theme: Stock
    Kernel:Stock

    OKAY, I think I understand what you guys are saying...How about this one

    When backing up my system, prior to making any changes on it, what would be the difference in using Bootstrap or titanium?

    Titanium doesn't back up your system, just your apps. Bootstrap will allow you to make a full system backup.
