    So, I've rooted and I've overclocked... what should I do next? I'm open to suggestions. It's becoming fun for a motor head/boost guru to do tech stuff... lol!

    I'm not looking to upgrade to 2.2 until it's actually available. Looking to do something like the HTC Incredible screen or a dock like the iPhone

    Honestly....go for 2.2. It's very stable, very fast and has some neat features.
    Bluetooth voice dialing
    ChromeToPhone (app and PC browser plugin)
    Flash
    USB tethering
    FAST

    Make a backup of your current system so you can always go back.

    I suppose this is a little off topic, but does the native browser on the phone support livestream/ustream/blip? If not, is there any support for sound via tethering to use your PC's browser to stream the video/audio to your phone? Curious if wifi streaming will be fast enough for watchable framerates + sound capabilities. AFAIK, sound isn't available yet..

    i'm looking at going to 2.2 now, but I can't find a OEM (if you will) Froyo 2.2

    all i can find is ROMs like Bugless Beast. i'm not looking for a personalized version of it, just the plain Froyo 2.2

    Easy, download Rom Manager if you don't have it already. Flash ClockworkMod Recovery.

    The select Download Rom, Stock Images, Verizon Froyo 2.2 Leak and you are good to go.

    Has the wi-fi fix, 600 or 800mhz kernal so everything is ready.

    (edit) make sure to WIPE and do a Backup since you will be changing from a 2.1 Rom to a 2.2 Rom. You need to wipe to clear out the old OS and a backup in case you want to recover back to what you are running now.

    awesome! it didn't realize that it was going to be that easy. i already have sprecovery installed, will installing clockworkmod recovery cause any issues or will doing a "wipe clean" take care of that?

    Flashing ClockworkMod Recovery with Rom Manager will replace SPRecovery so no problems there...and the ClockworkMod does all the work for the images (roms) you download with Rom Manager.

    The Wipe will erase everything off the phone so when it boots up you will have to log in to your gmail account again and it'll start pulling down your contacts and such...

    Takes a good 30-45 minutes after boot for the phone to feel normal again when going from 2.1 to 2.2

    Just log in and set it down...come back later.

    Rom Manager makes things crazy easy....you can swap roms, kernals, etc... while sitting at McDonalds eating lunch if you want. It has a respository of those using it for delivery, so many Roms to choose from (paid version) and you can flash Roms, Kernals, updates, etc...without renaming them to update.zip like SPRecovery requires.
    It'll download the Rom, wipe (if you want) and backup (if you want) your system and then install it. You never have to boot into recovery manually, etc...

    well... i went to install the p3 kernel using clockworkrecovery and now it's stuck on the boot screen. any suggestions? i've tried taking out the battery and rebooting it in recovery mode using the power button and
    "X", but nothing. it just keeps going back to the boot screen and it stays there forever.... what do i do?

    (edit) i am to get it to the bootloader screen, but that's it... any suggestion still?
