    I rooted and installed Aloysius and I like it a lot! But I want to try the new Sense-Able or Evil Eris (or any stable rom that supports overclocking) - is this difficult to do? Everybody is posting about trying out all sorts of different roms on their phones but I'm having trouble figuring out that part of the process...

    Thanks!

    Just drop the .zip file into your SD card and flash it from recovery mode. Make sure you do a NANDROID backup and clear data/dvalik first.

    There are directions in the ROMS/ADDONS Sticky. It may vary slightly for different ROMS. So read carefully. This is one of the first things I learned when I rooted a couple weeks ago.

    in most cases unless it states no wipe update on that particular rom it will be
    Code (Text):
    1. [INDENT][LEFT]
    2. 1. place rom on card
    3. 2. backup any apps+data you want to use in the new rom with titanium
    4.    or equivalent app
    5. 3. boot into recovery with (hold)volume up + power
    6. 4. backup
    7.    -nandroid backup
    8. 5. wipe
    9.    - factory reset
    10.    - davlik data
    11. 6. load rom
    12. 7. reboot
    13. 8. after doing the setup install your backup app such as
    14.     titanium and reload your apps+data.[/LEFT]
    15. [/INDENT]
    on those roms that state no wipe update you do everything mentioned above except for steps 5 and 8.
