    Hi Guys....

    I rooted my phone.......I did a complete backup and installed SPrecovery 0.99.3.img

    I have 2.0.1 now....do I have to do anything more? Or is my droid now ready fo me to install a 2.1 rom??

    Can I just go now and get the latest rom and put it in my nandroid folder and install it on my droid?

    Does the new rom "overwrite" the 2.0.1 rom??

    If I can just load a rom....I will and I will also overclock...

    Sorry if I posted in the wrong section

    thanks for your help!
