    I only rooted a few days ago. I'm currently on NeoPhyte 1.7. I originally flashed his other rom. Both seem good.

    i have used next sense & neophyte, using neophyte 1.7.1 at present it seems to be the fastest sense rom available scoring 1518 for me.

    Defrost was canning my battery until I installed setcpu now seems better then it was with stock HTC froyo.

    Finding it hard to find themes and mods for recent defrost builds :-(

    I've only used defrost 2.6 and MoDaco R5 and 2x R8.

    I didn't like defrost at all, mainly because I was coming from a 2.1 MoDaCo Rom which I really liked.

    I like R8. Not as fast as R5 (according to quadrant), but much more stable. I love that I can have it with Perflock disabled on boot now. Shouldn't be long until R8 becomes an official MoDaCo release.

    Using OpenDesire with Sense at the minute, may switch to a stock ROM soon, I can't disable Perflock on this ROM(no underclocking :()

    With DeFroST, the latest versions come with 'DeFroST setup' which allows you to easily select the files you need. They are then flashed using 'Clockwork mod'. DeFroST is my current favourite. I much prefer the ROM's without sense.

    when installing the new rom, i use the following process:

    1: backup using titanium
    2: nandroid backup using rom manager
    3: flash new rom

    NB #2 and #3 can be done in one action

    I don't wipe, thus i don't lose any data. The backups are there in case i need ro redo, or wipe.

    Thanks Lekky so flashing without wiping the bits and bobs in recovery will simply update the rom.

    whats difference between titanium backup and nandroid backup?

    Titanium is appsand data. If you wipe, this willrestoreall your settings.

    Nandroid is a snapshot. Rom, apps data everything. If you restore a nandroid, it will restore it exactly as itwas. Titanium will take apps and data to new roms. Nandroid will not.

    been looking at the custom roms so may gave them a try instead of using the stock sense on my desire. am i right in thinking if i dont like customs roms i can just put the stock version back on just as easy as install the custom roms?

    Hi guys
    I have a desire with .75 bootloader, and 4.05.00.11 radio. It is locked to Telstra.
    I have not rooted it yet, as there are a few things I want to clear up before I do. (It is running eclair)

    First, I want to make sure I can backup the standard, locked to telstra ROM, for obvious reasons. I believe this is what nandroid does, and that the 1-click method located here in the forums includes a nandroid backup? is this true?

    Now back on subject. once I have rooted, what or whose rom should i use?
    If possible, I would like a rom that is easy to update, must have sense, preferably Froyo, must be stable, good to decent battery life, and apart from that, the faster the better. I know that i am being really picky, and that is probably why I need you pro's to help me out.

    Thanks for any help!

    * 2 other things- I have heard stories ofthings going wrong with radios when rooting, so I would just like to make sure that any rom i use will have an inbuilt radio (and that nandroid can put my old one back on), or that it wont be touched.
    Thanks again!
