    Just picked up a used OG Droid (to hold me over til my upgrade date), I have rooted my previous android phone...hoping I can muddle my way thru rooting this Droid when it gets here ...... question

    I see alot of talk about of custom kernals. ..... do I need to flash an OC kernal ? or are they built into the roms ??? Not sure if you are just flashing kernals to OC an otherwise stock phone.... or .........

    Use to have an Eris , it finally met its end......

    to root your D1, start here: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-labs/74028-root-droid-1-regardless-os-version.html

    as for kernels, one will come with the rom. some roms have an 800 kernel, others may have a 1000 or 1100. it just depends what you want to get out of your phone. also, kernels and roms work differently on each phone. your phone may not like the rom kernel, so you may need to flash another one to get better performance out of your phone. it's just a trial and error process....
