    Thinking of wiping, installing a ROM and overclocking my phone

    Hello,
    Lately my stock 2.1 has been a bit sluggish and the home screen icons frequently disappear. I've been thinking about wiping my phone and installing a third party ROM on here.

    What are some of the most stable, overclockable roms out there?
    Can stock 2.1 be overclocked?
    Are there are roms that allow USB host mode (download pics off a digicam)?

    Thanks
    Chris

    Cyanogen mod, bugless beast, and a few others are ese81 2.1 roms and allow overclocking. Stock 2.1 can not be overclocked, but there is a stock 2.1 rom out there that can be over clocked.

    In my opinion cyanogenmod is the most stable I've seen and used. As far as usb host mode I have no clue about. Also to go from 2.1 stock to rooted I believe you'll have to flash the 2.01 sbf and then root it. There's a guide for that in my sig.

    I hope I was able to help you

    That is why I rooted. I had horrible performance after the 2.1 OTA update. Now my phone is fun again and soooooooo responsive. No lags, nothing. I love it.

    I was advised and use Cyanogen. I have not had any troubles with it at all.

    You will not regret rooting!! Go for it and enjoy.

    All of them.

    No. Overclocking requires a kernel change. You can change JUST the kernel and overclock, however. It'll be sort of just like stock.

    Are there are roms that allow USB host mode (download pics off a digicam)?
    No, nothing does that (yet). Somebody did a proof-of-concept where they attached a dongle to the USB port and rebooted, and it switched the USB port into host mode. It only stayed in host mode for ONE device, and there were no device drivers for it, yet. As a concept, it's good, but it hasn't been realized completely, yet.

    I would suggest that instead you use a uSD card and SD adapter in your camera. If you need to get to the photos from your Droid (say, to post them online or something), you can power down, swap the uSD card in, and boot back up. So long as you don't rely on anything on your SD card, it should work fine. Copying photos from the camera card to the droid card will be tricky, though, since there is not very much local storage space at all.
    Cool CM Tricks
    custom_backup_list.txt - make a list of files in /system that will survive a nightly install (ringtones, notifications, system apps, wallpapers, whatever)
    in Terminal Emulator, set this as your shell command: "/system/xbin/su -c /system/xbin/bash". You get all the features of bash, root access, and you can still use the initial command field for whatever you want (default is adding /data/local/bin to your path)

    Thanks for the useful information everyone. I will check out Cyanogen.

    In the past I had used DroidMod updater to root and install a custom rom on my phone. It was almost too easy. Does Cyanogen have any sort of auto installer?

    I've been using CM and I love it. Haven't had a single issue and I'm even running a version of it on my girlfriend's HTC MT3G. Give it a try and I'm sure you'll love it!

    i'll toss in a vote for not using any rom. just stay stock rom(much more stable/reliable for me) and just flash an overclocking kernel. you will still need root first. it will be the same as what you have now, just overclocked.

    Ok, I rooted my phone and I downloaded and installed the CM Updater, but I'm not sure how to install the ROM.

    Any ideas?
