    I can smell the flames now, but I'd rather someone not like me than do something wrong i can't reverse.

    To root/OC:
    1. flash back to 2.0.1
    2. use the rooted version of 2.1
    3. ..use overclocking program?

    Also, I'm sure this has been asked enough to make you rip your hair out, but we were all newbies not even a year ago to this amirite?

    If you've rooted, would you do it again if you had to? I see overclocking and tethering, but with tethering available non-rooted, what's YOUR reason for rooting and going through the process of downgrading and rooting?

    For those that offer help, I thank you in advance.

    There is no need to go back to 2.0.1 to root your phone. Here is a link that will help you out.

    Once you have root access you will need to decide if you want to download a rom or just have the ability to overclock and maybe wifi tether. All you would need is a custom kernel and the app set cpu to accomplish that if you don't want a new rom.
    Yes I would definitely root again and I really can't see myself ever going back to a stock phone
