    Hello there. I bought my desire recently and found a rooting guide using unrevoked. i managed to root it and install a custom rom. now that I have tried to install another one it wouldnt work it would just boot into the same rom again. whats the right method to root? i am bit confused about app2sd asd+. what are the steps i need to do. I also would like to format my sd card and partition it properly.

    How did you install the second one? Through clockworkmod recovery? It must have given an error?

    You will have had to wipe before installing the second one.

    What is your ultimate goal here?

    i went into recovery mode using power button and volume down. i did back, factory reset wipe and then install new zip from sd card. chose the zip it said installed then i did reboot but it just went to the previous rom.

    i then tried using rom manager i got the same problem

    How can you be sure its the same rom? Are you sure you're not flashing the same rom? Maybe try another one.

    Because I took out the old Rom and left the new one. I can tell the old one had a proper name.zip and the new one just number.zip. thing is when I click install it seems to take few seconds.only shouldn't it take.longer?

    Yes, it should take about a minute. There will be a message on screen telling you what has happened.

    It may be the rom zip you downloaded is corrupt. Maybe redownload or just try a new rom.

    no, you have to partition the card before installing the rom if you are using the rom I linked to.

    no i havent installed your rom yet. i just formatted the sd card using settings then went into recovery mode to install a2sd+. because u said i need to partition the card first before i install the rom. i thought a2sd+ will help me partition
