    You'll need an overclockable kernel also.

    Flashing a kernel is nothing.

    After you are successfully rooted, download ROM Manager. Flash Clockwork Mod Recovery 3 times. Then search online for kernels. Some good developers are P3Droid, Peter Alfonso, ChevyNo1, slayher, jdlfg, and more. Each kernel comes in different voltages.

    You'll want to do some research because there is a HUGE difference between an 800 MHz ULV kernel and an 800 MHz SV kernel. Different phones can handle different voltages. So you'll want to download 3/4 different kernels to avoid issues if you get boot loops.

    Anyway, to flash a kernel, hook up your D1 to your pc and mount it. Then google (or whatever you want to use) some kernel developers and download a few of their kernels. Move the files to the root of your SD card.

    Then turn off your phone. Reboot your phone while holding X + power. Release the X when the Motorola Logo pops up. You should then be booted into Clockwork Mod Recovery.

    Next you'll want to select "install zip from sd card". Find whatever kernel you want to flash and select it. Then say yes you want to install. It will take less than a minute. Reboot your phone and download SetCPU to get your overclocking on.

    I hope I don't brick my phone! But I really. Wanna do this! How'd the battery life at 1 ghz? I know it will eat it more but is it horrible?

    Every phone handles kernels different. But its a trade off between performance and battery life. The lower the frequency, the better the battery life. Definitely make a backup before flashing anything to your phone. Its a good idea to load a few different kernels to the sd. That way if you bootloop, and it does happen, just go to recovery and flash another kernel. This just saves time by not flashing your backup. You'll have to experiment with different kernels to see which ones your phone like. As a rule of thumb, if you bootloop, go down in frequency or up in voltage.

    examlpe: if a 1ghz ulv kernel bootloops, try a 900mhz ulv or 1ghz lv or mv.
