    Hello everyone,

    I'm new to modding my droid and I have a few questions. I rooted my droid and am ruuning on 2.0.1. I was wonfering if its possible to be rooted and run on the 2.1 software. Also, could I have some tips on overclocking the droid?

    I can help you with things. But why are you still on 2.0.1 to begin with?

    You have some reading to do. Everything you are looking for can be found on this forum. You will need to browse, search, and read. It cannot all be recreated in a single reply to this post (and need not be).

    Welcome!

    I'm guessing he rooted the 2.0.1 and didn't "upgrade" in fear of losing root.

    There are an awful lot of people around here with rooted and OC'd droids.

    Look in the Droid Hacks forum for how to install a custom recovery and/or installing ROM manager, that is probably your first step.

    Once you get that far, let us know and we can guide you in the fine arts of Custom ROM installation and Overclocked kernel installation (most custom ROMs come with a OC'd kernel anyways).

    I would agree with mcapozzi. Rom Manager is definitely your next step. Search for it in the market if you haven't already found it. Both the paid and free versions can install custom recoveries as well as several different ROMs.

    Actually you need both the free and paid versions of ROM Manager in order to flash different ROMs or install kernels. You will not be able to flash anything with just one or the other. Just an FYI...

    The free one will at least get Clockwork Recovery installed, from there you can just install the ROM and kernel manually. It's easy and well documented. If you plan on doing this often, perhaps buying ROM manager would be a good idea.

    pete has a 2.1 sprecovery that you can install through sprecovery. And from there you can install any rom. I recommend people coming from 2.1 to install it first and make anandroid backup so that you are on 2.1 and have a backup to go back to that is 2.1 basded.

    hereis the link from dl: Video: Installing Stock 2.1 With Root Access | Droid Life: A Motorola Droid Blog

    You can install bugless through sprecovery with out rom manager it is up to you. I recommend you do some research and make sure you have a nandroid backup.
