    I was wondering what the best stock 2.1 rom w/ root is out there? I know Pete put something out. Is there anything else? I really don't want to root, but I want to overclock, so if I must root, id like to keep it stock as possible.

    you have to root to overclock, so what you should do is root your phone and apply your kernel of choice. I like Chevyn01 for my stock OC kernels. So basically you can use your own rom, stock.

    i know that you need root access to OC. I'm wondering if there is any 2.1 stock roms that are rooted, like Petes. I got a replacement phone which has 2.1 already on it. So I have to root it again. I just didn't know if there was a better version than Petes.

    In my opinion, rooting 2.1 yourself is the safest bet. I like to know exactly what is done to a rom before I load it up. If you would like to dabble with some cool features down the road, almost all of the available roms have stock theme options. I am using Koush's Cyanogenmod 5.0.7test1 and it is the best rom I've every used. You can tweak it to look and move like stock would too! I like Pete's BBV1 as well, but I did have a lot of FC's and lagging on it.

    I'm not sure if you're still looking, but here are some stock roms. The first link is completely stock, just rooted with busybox. The second link is rooted with busybox and is deodexed, which means you can customize it more. To overclock either of these roms you're just going to need to get an OC kernel from one of the devs. I like Chevyn01 myself. Just make sure the dev says if its compatible with stock ESE81 before you load one.

    Stock ESE81 Root & busybox...

    Stock ESE81 Root, busybox & deodexed
    MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

    and the instructions are here..
    1. Unzip the file and place it in the nandroid folder at the root of your sdcard
    2. backup/restore
    3. advanced nandroid restore
    4. choose backup
    5. uncheck "data" (only BOOT and System should be slected)
    6. Perform restore

    let me know if this works for you.
