    Ok so i finally jumpped in and rooted. I am also running UD Extreme 6.0.0.
    Now question is. I hear this is already overclocking my droid. How can i see what its running at? Also how can i check tempuratures?

    If i want to clock higher, how can i do this and still keep the UD extreme stuff? I like the theme and the overall stuff it adds.

    Sorry if these questions are really stupid.. not sure too much what im doing. Im still a bit confused as to the difference between a ROM and the Kernel and when i flash, what is being flashed? The ROM or the Kernel or both? Or is one the same as the other?

    You can get it for free from the developers over at xda-developers in the G1 apps section. The one on the market is his way of getting donations.

    You can flash a kernel separate from a rom to replace the ones the roms come with. So while you're running UD 6.0 right now @800mhz, you can install a diff kernel (aka chevy's kernels) over UD 6.0 and nothing about the rom is changed. Just a warning though...kernels don't seem to run the same on every droid. You'll just have to find one that works for you.
