    I am by no means an expert at this - but, if you have found a rom that you like I would start by going to that thread in the forums. So, for JRummys - http://www.droidforums.net/forum/jr...mix-v0-7-cyanmod-5-0-6-2-5-theme-choices.html

    There are instructions on the first page. Before I dove in I just did some searching and came across some well done videos. As far as overclocking - you will back up your current state prior to making your changes. If something is fubar, just reboot into recovery and restore your last.

    go into rom manager and just select cyanogen it comes with a stock 600 mhz kernel try that its pretty fast after you learn to get around with your fone a little i would try running a kernel for now id just read up for a week or so

    yep - not that it can't (won't) happen, but I haven't seen anyone have much issue with anything slower than 900Mhz. Just getting to know setcpu will be a bit of a confidence builder.
