So I have never rooted before and I am about to give it a whirl. I am not worried about the consequences really, I feel pretty confident I can follow directions. My only issue is, after browsing these forums I am completely lost on what rom to use! I see some people saying beast and various other custom roms, then I see some saying "vanilla" Froyo is the way to go. So now my questions: 1) What rom SHOULD a first timer use? 2) Where do you find it? 3) What is the most newb friendly rom loader? 4) Can I use any of these custom themes I see with any custom rom or do I need the "vanilla"? 5) Does WiFi work in all of the Froyo roms now? 6) Are there a list of known issues with specific custom roms available or even "vanilla" froyo? 7) Will my purchased apps that are updated to work in 2.2 work? I searched most of those questions on the forums (All but number 7 to be exact!). I never found a straight forward answer...so it just confused me a bit! So I appreciate any help you are able to give. Thanks in advance!
