"clockworkmod" is the creator. You don't need to do anything else. No, it is not the factory update. No, it will not wipe your phone. It just adds/replaces the files in the .zip file.
Ok, cool. Just one more question. How do you back up your phone before you do this?
Uhhhh... no clue. But I did it twice without issue.
Thanks for the info, here goes nothing....lol
E:signiture verification failed Is what I get.
Probably should do factory reset and do it all from scratch.
I haven't seen any empirical differences. GPS is unreliable as hell, meaning sometimes it works sometimes it takes forever to lock, sometimes it just spins its wheels and goes nowhere.
I have two triumphs in the house so I often use both to compare, one is rooted, several system changes - other is about as stock as it gets.

Just wanted to mention a brief GPS experience;
Sitting in a building and could only find ONE satellite. I walked outside and let the phone do it's thing with GPS test. Found 11 satellites in under a minute. I walked back inside the building and it stayed locked. dropped to 7 satellites.
Without any hacks or alterations to the phone.
