Video: Upgrading a ROM and Using SetCPU

Just the other day, we showed you how easy it is to go from one custom ROM to another using ROM manager.  And since then, ROM manager has added almost every major custom ROM out there to its list giving you the opportunity to jump back and forth between them with even more ease.  You can also use it to upgrade to the newest version of your particular ROM of choice which is what our video today is based upon.  Oh, and we’ve tossed in a little SetCPU session for those still a little confused by its power…

*Warning* – As always, you are performing these tasks at your own risk.  We are not recommending that you do ANY of these, but simply providing information to you.  There is a chance you could brick your phone, do other permanent damage and this will more than likely void your warranty. Please do as much research as you can beforehand.  We are not liable for any of your actions.

*Note 1* – Just a reminder that this process can only be done if your phone is rooted.

*Note 2* – In this video, after clicking “Download ROM,” my phone goes immediately into the installation process because I have already downloaded the ROM.  For you, it may take up to 20 minutes for everything to download before you get to the installation process.

*Update 1* – I finally purchased premium ROM Manager and all other ROMs are available with upgrade options.  Well worth the $3.99 price.

With another delay announced yesterday by Motorola and the updates to custom ROMs coming in daily, are we sure that this 2.1 update will ever be worth it?
