    Question Where to start?

    I'm coming from a Droid 1 that had Chevy no1 mod on it and it was an amazingly fast phone. I then went to the Droid Charge thinking there would be the same amount of customization there was for the Droid 1. Boy was I wrong. Basically I want my phone to be debloated of all the garbage Verizon has put on it, I want it overclocked so its actually fast, no more lag, no more home screen redraws and app-drawer redraws. What else...basically I want my phone as fast as my droid 1 which was more lower end than the Charge.

    Ive cruised around the forums here but don't know where to start. Should I just wait till Verizon rolls out the gingerbread update for the charge or root it now and put cfw on it. I thought I knew about droids till I got a new phone haha!

    So you expected a phone that's been out for a couple months to be just as customize-able as a phone that's been out for years??

    Anyway, I too came from a D1 (ran Bugless, Chevy, CM7, etc) and I love my Charge. You need to root it, install a custom ROM and kernel (enable the voodoo lagfix) and you'll be good to go. There are some overclocking kernels out there if you'd like. The only difference I noticed when overclocking is higher quadrant scores and AnTuTu Benchmark scores. Whoopty doo. This phone is plenty fast at the stock 1000mhz. (with voodoo enabled of course.)

    OK im following a pretty decent guide on XDA Developers but what the **** is a kernel. I thought GummyChargedGBE blah blah blah 1.91 is the kernel. Whatever Im at part 5 which says its optional of this guide. [HOW-TO] Get a rooted version of EE4 - xda-developers I feel like such a noob

    its best to get the ones that say "full Odin" everything you need is all in one flash. you dont just want root, its a waste of time.

    Exactly. Flash an entire ODIN package and you'll be all set.

    Here's a good write-up on how to use ODIN: [How to] Return to Stock, FULL with modem ED2 Odin package(Last resort fix) - Android Forums

    Now mind you, there are some other things in that write-up, but using ODIN is the same for whatever file you decide to flash.

    And here is the ODIN package that I am currently running:
    [ROM][EE4][ODIN]+[CWM] GummyCharge FE 1.9.1 07/21/11

    GummyCharged 1.9.1 is the ROM. Peanut Butter Jelly Time is the kernel.


    Think of it like this, a ROM is the operating system like Windows XP. A kernel is the drivers that make the hardware and software work together.
