Basic questions after root
I am a noob, which seems to be a bit of an unwelcomed thing in many threads,and I have some basic questions. I've read through the forums but many of them get off topic after a few posts.
After much reading, I rooted my phone and everything went great. I did it the long way and it was a pretty easy process. Now I am reading up on roms before I go messing with that. I've seen many posts on people's opinions of roms to use, but many are from a while ago and since things change so fast I am looking for suggestions. The most important thing to me is speed and battery life, but it would also be nice to find something attractive.
Also on roms, I see some that are sense, and some that are not. What is the difference? I haven't seen anything on this. Can you run multiple roms that you switch between when hitting the home button?
When I install a new rom, can I delete all the htc sense stuff?
After rooting, is it safe to remove the programs I used to root. I assume superuser and terminal emulator need to stay, but what about visionary, Astro, File expert? Will I need any of these again?
I have downloaded Gemini app manager to disable apps from starting up, but visionary is one I wasn't sure about. If I do still need it in the future, can I freeze it so it isn't constantly running?
I've seen a lot of list about bloatware you can remove, but what about all the htc stuff. Is there any need to get rid of any of that? Is it safe?
Sorry for the long list, but I just want to learn as much as I can before proceeding. I don't need any new paperweights.
