Ok... so I finally took the plunge and rooted my Droid without too much hassle. Then, after reading and reading posts after posts I figured I had it pretty much figured out how to update from 2.1 to Froyo 2.2.
I followed the instructions the best of my ability, installed it, rebooted, went into the About Phone area and it said I had 2.2. Wonderful. But... there were only 2 things that I noticed that changed. The fact that it said 2.2 and that setCPU was able to go up to 600 instead of 550. Nothing else changed, not even the theme.
So then I decided to try and install one of P3D's kernel things. I did the Kernels for (Froyo) Android 2.2 Only *Low Voltage* 1100. Followed the instructions on his site, rebooted and it seemed to go fine. Till it restarted and I got stuck in the booting sequence.
So, basically what I'm saying... is I have no idea what the hell I'm doing. Haha. Also, I've read on two different forums that had instructions that kind of contradict each other. I know this isn't for the "every day user" stuff... but I know that once I do it (correctly) one time... I'll be able to get it the rest of the times.
So, any help from you guys? Step by step instructions would be great... for 2.2 and a new kernel. Haha.
Sorry for the long post...
