The only thing I've done to my phone is root it, using one of the first roots available... (sorry, I forget the user... same guy who has the overclock root)
Now, I'd like to upgrade to this new ROM, and wonder if I can just upgrade it over the rooted kernal I have now....
I have tried looking around for the answer, and cannot find the exact answer.. So, I figure I'd ask, instead of just guessing...
You would need to do a factory data/reset before you installed this ROM. I wouldn't install it over your stock ROM. In fact, I never install over older ROMs even if they're the same version. It's usually safer that way.
To access your ClockworkMod, you need your phone to be ON. Then hold the vol up AND down and the power button. Once the screen goes off, let go of the power button but continue to hold the vol up/down. Eventually, your phone will kick into ClockworkMod. From here, you can access the .zip file of the newly installed ROM. Make sure you run a backup in ClockworkMod first, then run a factory data reset. Then install file from sd card, find your file, run it, reboot, and wala.
