    I have the phone rooted and it worked like a charm. I have read these forums for hours and days and I cannot find a "good" solution for overclocking the stock 2.1. Can I install just a custom kernel or do I have to be on a custom ROM (which I really want to avoid)?

    I did look into the chevy and p3 kernels but were not sure what did what and which one would work best mainly because I can't find a simple yes or no whether they actually work on a rooted stock 2.1. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I like Chevy and P3 equally. I think P3 has the option to do wired tethering and Chevy's only does wireless tethering. If Chevy's did wired I'd use it, but since it doesn't I'm using P3's on a stock 2.1 rom. All you need to do is rename the kernel.zip to update.zip and apply via recovery.

    Thanks so much! Do I still need SetCPU to make sure it runs smoothly and can I go 1GHZ?

    Yeah, I would definitely get setcpu. It's just a buck from the market. It's one of like 5 apps that I bought, along with root explorer. That is a must have, especially if you want to add some of your own apps to the system. If you want make your own rom, you can do it pretty easily using a deodexed rom and root explorer. Woodyman and I both posted nandroids of ours. I highly recommend it, after trying all the other roms and finding too many problems with each one.

    -WOW, 3-minute response time! Thanks.

    So in my case just rename 1000_LV_Wi_USB_Tether.zip to update.zip, put it on the SD card and install with nandroid, right?

    yes on naming it update.zip and putting it on your sd card, but no, not nandroid... in sprecovery, just do "install", then "allow install of update.zip" then "install update.zip" (wording might be a little different, but it will be obvious)
