after you have rooted, you need rom manager, you flash recovery with it, and make a backup.
Cm7 links can be found in op of nightlies thread by crondable. Cm7 comes with a kernel baked into it so you won't need to flash one.
You will also want to look into titanium backup.
And make sure you read alot before you do anything.

ROMs, kernels, CM7, all take a back seat to making your nandroid backup."I drank what?" -Socrates

#1 No. The current version of Unrevoked does S-Off by default.
#2 Either or both. You can use ROM Manager to download ROMs, but I would flash them manually. Also you can go direct to the website on the phone to download, or you can download on PC and copy over. It all depends on how reliable your downloads are on 3G. If thay are good your OK, If not use Wi-Fi on the phone or the PC.
Hope this helps.

umm ok, so i downloaded and installed cyanogenmod from their site. the file i downloaded is "update-cm-7.0.3-Inc-signed.zip". I backed up everything, and switched to cm7 and now i am stuck at what appears to be a black loading screen with an arrow circling droid on skateboard. i tried rebooting and battery pull but it jus keeps looping. i let it run its course but it stays like this for a while... uhhh can anyone assist me please!!!!!

Let it sit on the Skateboarder for 10 min or more. First boot on a new ROM can take what seems like FOREVER!.Some say that his dormant chips were left that way for YOUR SAFETY... Others say that once "turned on," he can not be turned off... All we know is... He's called The Stig.
