    I have FRG01B and wondering if it's needed to update? I've had two updates pushed to my phone from verizon but I'm not sure if these are really necessary.

    I do want to try out Cyanogen6. Would I need to update in order to use that rom? Lastly, is there a kernel that works best for CM6?

    I'm running a Droid 2.2 with build mentioned above.

    Sorry if these questions seem very basic, but there is so much information I'm going through it's a little overwhelming.

    Thanks in advance.

    You should be good to go then. Make sure you read the instructions on how to install the rom though. I have never had a problem installing any rom but, I have read that some roms are installed better with SPrecovery and some install better with Clockwork mod recovery. I have always used clockwork mod and never had any problems. Make sure you back up your current rom before you flash a new one and wipe data and wipe cache before you flash a new rom also.

    So I don't need to worry about upgrading from FRG01B?

    If you have root access you should be able to flash the ROM with no issues as is

    You should probaby jump over to the Cyanogenmod section in hacks to see what the dev calls for.
