    Brand New Droid to 2.2 Froyo Help

    Ok guys, Im getting my (first) Droid June 21, and heres the game plan:

    3:30 PM - Arrive at verizon store and ditch my LG Dare for a Motorola Droid
    4:15 PM - Arrive at GF's house
    11:30 PM - Arrive at home
    12:30 AM - Have successfully finished rooting my phone with Froyo
    1:00 AM - Overclock my phone, hopefully to 1.2ghz
    1:30 AM - Begin installing custom ROMs, Themes, and Apps

    So.... who wants to help me setup my game plan for that? This guide looks good, but I want to make sure that it is exactly what I need:

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...tallation.html


    Some things I need help with:
    1. This guide is fine right? Is there a better one?
    2. If I follow this guide, will my droid be rooted? (I want the root)
    3. What is the main difference between roms and themes? If I do the Froyo install, can I use any rom, or only 2.2 roms?
    4. What is the best rom, in your opinion, and why?

    Im gonna film the whole process, because I figure that may be helpful for people. Let me know if you have any info!

    Use this guide. I think it's easier to follow.

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...de-thread.html

    Or, you can install RSD Lite, download SPRecovery, then simply install Froyo.

    I do not have a guide to do this but it's the easiest way. Here's how you do it. It has a video too, can't be much easier.

    The first guide will have you flash back to 2.0.1. Then you it takes you through rooting your phone and installing Froyo. The second way allows SPRecovery to be installed on your Droid. When you install Froyo, latest version, your phone will then be rooted.

    I think it's easier then going back to 2.0.1. But it's up to you.
