    Ok, i have rooted my phone but since doing so havent had any use for it....i was just excited to mess around with my phone on receiving it.


    Question im wondering now though, is it worth installing the latest froyo with sense release, or should i wait for the official?

    If the answer is yes its worth it, what rom should i use? Im confused with what's the most current and stable release?

    Depends how you define "worth it". What are you looking to achieve? How concerned are you by bugs?

    IMO yes it is worth installing a sense 2.2 rom, after all, what is the point of rooting it, as you say yourself, you have had no use for it.... There are a number of froyo with sense roms knocking about on XDA most notably this one.

    [ROM-FroYo] Official Froyo HTC Sense ROM (16/07 v1.0c | OpenDesire Team) - xda-developers

    or some are saying that this one is a good rom

    [Froyo Sense] LeeDrOiD Mod V1.4b (21/07 l FR91_2.06 l Fast l Stable l WWE) - xda-developers

    its totally up to you which rom you choose, look on the rom specs to see what is included, and then decide which one would be right for you. I am using the former, and have to say that i am very very happy with what i have.

    Good luck

    I agree it is very worth while going for a custom rom, both of those are very good choices.
    Here is another one that i have installed.

    Im using the official one on XDA by AdamG, its fantastic. Been using it for the past week. So glad I rooted, my phones loads faster, nice adding things like themes and percentage circle battery mod etc.

    Sounds like you want a ROM without Sense, there are several on XDA.

    I don't think facebook and twitter can be removed from the sense ROMs because they're well integrated with the system. Such as for contacts syncing, etc.

    The good news; Yes
    The bad news (potentially) is that you'll have to pay

    I got mine from the kitchen, you and I must be very similar because I didn't want any of the stuff you don't want either :p

    The rom is extremely stable and I'm very pleased with it.

    Modaco is well known in the rooting community, very stable builds.

    Im trying the Froyo sense ROM from opendesire and have noticed a problem with bluetooth handsfree calling. when the phone transfers numbers to my car it make all the number 0XX-XXX-XXXX. Then i cant call anyone this way because the dash's mess the number up? Any idea's?
