I also used this guide to root my sensation. And also to gain super cid. Quite easy to follow with links to all the bits n bats you'll need to do the job..

Tried quite a few Roms. But I've been with the leedroid ROM since v 2.0 now on v 2.2 its a very fast smooth and stable ROM that I really recommend trying.

Basically, it's a process that allows you to change the software that comes with your phone and to overclock/under clock, change voltages etc

This was written for a different phone but should still be able to answer a lot of your questions about rooting:

I've changed over to this one.

[ROM] Android Revolution HD™ 3.6.2 XE | 4.1.3 Sense 3.5 | High Quality & Performance - xda-developers

But using the one which uses Sense 3,5 (3rd of 4th post on that page)


Using these two mods for the camera!
[MOD][08/10/2011] BluRay CameraMOD v2 Sense 3.5 | 40mbps | HQ | +Performance - xda-developers
[MOD]10 OCT[v2]HTC Amaze camera for Sense 3.5 2.3.5 Everything working!!! - xda-developers

The camera quality is awesome now!!

No you don't need to flash the radio. It will work perfectly fine with the stock one - should you choose to follow Mike's recommendations and flash the radio - it would be better to check you have super-cid and flash the firmware instead which fixes a lot of issues and has the radio.img in the package. You will need to flash the RIL for the radio separately.

There are posts you can link to here on this forum that shortcut to the XDA forums OP on how to root/super-cid and flash RILs. I can't link as I'm on my phone.

**Make sure you follow all instructions to the letter as flashing firmware can brick your phone**

How do I find my hboot? I have tried following the guide linked in the OP, but I do not find it to be very understandable at all. It says I need revolutionary to find my hboot to enter, but I need to know which hboot to enter to download revolutionary...
