    A few answers will be helpful

    Are you running a custom ROM

    Are you using an Over Clocking Kernel

    How did you Root

    First of all you are on a very old O/S Android 2.2 is the newest version, and build number (Droid Mom) I have never heard of that

    How do you know your Device is Rooted, do you have the SuperUser Ninja or Pirate Icon in your app drawer

    I am also curious what "Recovery" you have, you can tell this by powering down the device and powering up by Holding down the Power and X key until a "Recovery" screen comes up

    Droid mod is one of the originators of great roms of the 2.0.1 era they still have a custom rom section, all you have to do is fine your self a rom to your liking and enjoy

    Yea just choose a rom from the custom rom section on your comp, then backup whatever you need, move the zip file to your memory card and rename to update, wipe data and cache,install zip and ur done

    SPRecovery is what you need to have and the SU Ninja is a good sign too

    You may just pick a ROM made to work with SPR boot into recovery, wipe data and cache and install your 2.2 based ROM

    Do you have a step by step recommendation on how to do this and what is best? As the friend did this, I don't even know where to start. I have no files of what he did.

    You will be running the newest 2.2 that is out, and I highly recommend Ultimate Droid 8.0

    Anything else just let me know ;)

    TParker76: Feel a little uncomfortable trying to do something I have never done before. Can you walk me through this? Before I install this, do I need to do a backup and if so, how do I do that?

    D/L the Rom you like, put it on the root of your sdcard, rename it to update.zip (make sure it's update.zip not update.zip.zip XP-Vista hides file extensions by default) Boot into recovery (power on while holding x), Make a nandroid backup with the menus in SPR, then install, allow install, install (depreciated), reboot, enjoy
