This is the guide I used to gain root access... Originally I just wanted root to overclock... but chevy's roms were too enticing...

I'm sure there are other ways to do this... this was just the best explanation and step by step walk through.

After you gain root... then you can do the update.zip process

Couldn't say... I think once 2.2 comes out Chevy will have some clear benefits over stock... but who knows...

For me I like the look of it over stock because all the white and green are king of hard on your eyes lol...

my suggestion is once you get rooted to try it out and save yourself a back up of the rooted 2.1 you can revert back to if you want to.

it's a walkthrough to gain root acess to 2.1 which you need to put any sort of rom including chevy's 4.1 rom.

I think advanced and just make sure everything has a * next to it. I use ROM Manager though which flashes your recovery to ClockWork mod instead of SPD. It also does everything for you so you just pick the ROM you want and it will download and install it for you. There's a bunch of YouTube videos on that too.

Some people prefer the SPD method though. Really just a matter of preference.
