    Your kernel problems are probably because you're running the old radio that accompanied 2.1. We can update you to 2.2 but I'm going to have to ask you to hold off for a bit until one of the rescue squad members can log on to provide you the correct files.

    Hang on a minute- might be able to grab Doug right now even though technically he's not supposed to be lurking here today.

    Newbie, how comfortable are you with flashing files? If you've played around with kernels I'd assume you're okay with it but there's another option if you prefer to go that route.

    It's a version of the RUU- the file Verizon would use to upgrade you manually if you were to go into the store. Since you're rooted, going into a store with your phone isn't an option so you just apply it yourself.
