    Hello to me, welcome myself. Thank you.
    Ok here's the deal. I got the D1 when they first came out, so I can use the phone. I just found out about modifying things, so I want to learn.
    I used MotoCache's Rooting instructions - DONE! great love it, but I want more...
    So here's the details and question part -
    I am running Verizon D1 with 2.2.2, rooted. Got set CPU and overclocked to 800 (awesome), got Titanium backup too.
    What is "kernal" and why would I change it?
    I am going to flash a new ROM, but am learning and deciding - too much info to go through.
    Anything else???

    It's not too much info to go through if you are about to flash your first ROM.



    Think of the Kernel as the most critical part of your phone's OS. Don't get giddy over the root access. :)

    Stop, breathe & keep researching, don't pull the trigger until you are absolutely sure what you're doing ROM-wise. It sounds like you are already well on your way there, plus you have an OG droid1, but fixing a brick is always a PITA--proceed with caution !!!
