    Thanks so much for your help guys. I've been reading around the forum and on lifehacker.com and now all of a sudden my interest is peaked. I am enticed by promises of better keyboards, lock screen music players, and smoother map performance.

    So, now I have a few questions to ask about how to proceed. I have installed ROM Manager and have flashed to the newest version of Clockwork. I have no idea what ROM I am currently using but it's probably an unofficial Froyo 2.2. This makes me wonder why the developer didn't disable these updates already. Anyhow, I'm not very impressed with it and am willing to try out something different. Here are my newby questions:

    1. Can I save all my apps to my SD card before I install a new ROM so I don't have to download them all from the Market again? What about apps with data like AK Notepad, and Mileage. How can I keep my notes and data while switching between ROMs?

    2. What ROM should I Install? Cyanogen gets a lot of talk but most of the articles I've been reading are three years old.

    3. Is it really going to be as simple as I'm about to say it is (I'm sure the answer is no): I'll install a new ROM, Install Overclocking Kernels (I know noting about this), and then set my phone back up and enjoy learing the new System.

    Here's a link to one of the articles that got me thinking about doing this : Lifehacker, tips and downloads for getting things done

    Once you get into rooting you won't turn back, lol! When you flash a new rom google automatically installs all the apps you had for you, just not the data. You can use titanium backup and backup apps plus data and then restore it to the new rom. However, if you flash a gingerbread rom I wouldn't use titanium! If you want to save the data check in the app itself under settings and see if there is an option to backup the information.

    I started with rom manager as well and it makes things easy, just make sure you do a backup before flashing anything that way you can simply go back to that. Once you learn more you will probably get away from rom manager.

    As far as the rom goes, until you learn more about rooting, I would stick with froyo roms before you go to gingerbread. I always loved the simply stunning roms, and Chevyno1's kernels!

    Nice, I'm running Cyanogenmod 6 now.
    Lots of extra settings, it'll take me a while to digest.

    Overclock kernel?
    Any suggestions on something modest? 800MHz?
