    Yesterday, I finally decided to root my phone and flash an android 2.2 'with Sense' ROM. I followed this guide: How To: Install Froyo On An HTC Desire | I Can Has Pi?

    I used the 2.2 Sense ROM recommended by the guide. Everything was going really well, but once the proses was over I saw some things that instantly made me wish I had never bothered rooting:
    -I have a VERY low internal memory; no room for half my backed-up apps, no room for SMS, no room to take a low resolution photo(let alone 720p video!), and not even room to browse my photos or music(I know-weird...)!
    -Some apps (like the HTC MOD keyboard with voice input) simply don't work.
    -Slow boot and load HTC Sense.
    -Programs force-close very often, as dose HTC Sense.

    There are some good things in this ROM (like a slight increase in performance) but really, the bad outweighs the good- especially with the low storage, considering that the main reason I rooted was to get more space for apps!

    I don't know what to do now.
    Is there a solution within the ROM I'm using at the moment?
    Or did I just use a crappy ROM. Which can you recommend (Froyo w/Sense)?
    Unrooting seems quite easy, or is that dumb now that I've gone through the trouble of rooting?

    I can't be without receiving SMS for much longer! :D
    Thank you for your help.

    Ok, I thought I better clear this up because I dont want to put anyone off rooting their phone because now that I've sorted it out I really am glad I did it. Basically, I think it was just a bit of a crappy ROM. I simply installed a mocado ROM and now everything is great! Problem solved! :D

    Best way to do it if you get a problem & you have followed everything through, try a different rom they can get corrupted occasionally in downloading.
