    Do yourself a favor, root and install Desire Sense UI rom. You will not regret it. The ROM is silky smooth and the interface is to die for. My battery has significantly improved by 30%-40%. The only problem I've heard so far is that the bluetooth is unstable at the moment...but I don't even use bluetooth. I'm not even sure why it's being called an Alpha ROM?? It feels like a finished product to me. My nexus one feels like a totally different phone. Desire Sense UI ROM includes Wifi and wired USB tethering, new and improved camera options, customizable trackball notification colors.. you'll also get Torched since you'll be rooted :) This is hands down, the sexiest ROM for android. What are you waiting for???

    I dont get why anyone would want to ruin the nexus with a sense rom? Vanilla eclair works just fine. Froyo is even better. Sense ui just doesnt make any...sense that is.

    If you want your Nexus to work "just fine" then keep it as it is. If you want your Nexus to work better than "just fine", then modify it to your needs. To each his own.

    Some people want Froyo for the Flash support.

    There are a few things about Sense that are better, to me, than Vanilla Android.

    1) People widget -- I like being able to have a scrollable widget with my favorites on the homescreen. I have seen some on the market that try to copy this but not as well as htc.

    2) Messaging widget -- I used to look everywhere when I had my myTouch 3g for just a simple widget that showed the sms on the homescreen and that used the picture of the sender. This one does it right. Others ( pure, etc. ) does it okay.

    Sometimes, after switching over to Cyan ROM for bluetooth and MMS, I find myself missing the contacts app on Desire. Just something so cool about being able to slide the slider and check on facebook updates, read messages, etc.

    Hopefully we will eventually get a 2.2 Desire (or Incredible, Evo, ....) ROM and have the best of both worlds.

    They sense UI would not work on my nexus. It would say it would have a signal, but never connect to the internet. Waaawaa :(

    @ cigar3tte: The Desire ROM has flash 10 support. Videos load up in web pages, which is quite nice.

    @ hotdogwater: install the Desire ROM again and I'll show you the steps to get data again. The reason you weren't able to connect to the internet before is because the Desire ROM wipes your APN settings. I was experiencing the same thing, but I messed around with the settings and got it to work perfectly. PM me if you need help with the correct settings.

    @ jbman: hopefully we'll get the HD2 Sense ROM!!! :D:D:D

    I do think sense is overrated.. specially compared to Eclair, I had a Hero and switched to the N1 for the faster updating, played around with the desire was pretty disappointed with the gallery app, the stock android is much better at that.

    If the gallery app is your main focal point, then I don't know what to say to you. And since we're talking about the visual aspects, why don't you talk about how plain and lackluster the music application is on Vanilla Android.

    I'm waiting for Desire Sense ROM with Froyo!!! :D
    But I might check out stock ROM with Froyo just to see what the hype is all about. What are the improvements that you have notice so far with Froyo?

    The only thing I would add to froyo to make it perfect for me is nandroid backup or any full image backup. At least that way you can back up all data/apps/settings including OS before rooting and experimenting. My BB had this thru Desktop Manager, would think Android would too. I read somewhere about installing it on froyo, but I think I misunderstood the title of the instructions. It didn't lead toward that end.

    I would like to root with cyan quickrooter, but afraid of losing all when I do the root. Does it always wipe everything or is there just a potential for it? I have read over 30 hours of info on this and found nothing step by step for an idiot. I like the idea of a custom ROM that has Flash 10.1 and not flashlite, although maybe flashlite is good enough for viewing news clips etc. Desire ROM with Flash would interest me.

    No it doesn't, it has Flash Lite.

    Yeah, destroying an N1 with WinMo sounds like an awesome idea :rolleyes:

    Nah.. I prefer stock vanilla Android!

    Been waiting for the official release of Froyo lol! Been running Froyo FRF50 build for what... a month now?

    Glad Google is taking the time to release Froyo! A polished OS is better than a quickly released Buggy one!

    Desire ROM does not have full flash support, only Flash lite.

    Yes, actually, not having to put up with Sense UI was one of the attractions of an N1. :)

    There are functions with SenseUI that I wish were in Stock, however, there is nothing in SenseUI that makes me want to root my N1 and use it.

    With all of the issues with the SenseUI ROM's on the N1, there isn't really any reason to put it on the N1.

    IF, they ever fix those, it might be fun, but not for day to day use.

    The ONLY thing I like about SenseUI is the black notification bar, and the menu bar at the bottom. But regarding the menu bar, LauncherPro wins. A black notification bar isn't enough to make me root it. I prefer it hidden (LauncherPro does this) anyway.

    Sense UI is over-rated and in some ways now more redundant since Stock Android has significantly improved with Froyo......yes, the stock version really is getting that good these days.

    Like some others here, I am running Froyo with LauncherPro and the whole thing hangs together nicely and is quick.
