Alright well I rooted my phone now following the steps thanks to eugers22 for the help! It is a lot faster, however what should I do to make sure it continues to stay fast (don't use widgets, etc)? I am using Launcher Pro Plus and like it a lot, but it does have a lot of widgets you can utilize, should I limit these, or does it not slow it down too much?? I have no done a kernel yet, but I need to. For the kernel do i just connect to usb copy file and go to clockwork menu etc?
