    Several ways to do it. I use ROM Manager and create backups with it as well as download/load new ROM's.

    For overclocking you'd need a new kernel. Again, several ways to do it. I use ROM Manager as well.

    Your call to make.

    Don't forget that there are subforums specifically for mods, ROM's, hacking etc. Threads tend to drown in General Discussion unless they're very active.

    I use rom Manager and Clockwork recovery, so i cant really help you out with installing new stuff.

    a kernal installs just like a ROM does.

    i have tried pretty much everything out there ROM wise. CM6, BB v.04, sapphire, and some others, i am currently on Ultimate droid 8...and i have to say, it is awesome. running with the black and bold theme and it is everything i could want with a ROM. i will most likely be sticking with UD from now on.
