right im almost ready to take the plunge and root my desire, BUT! just want to ask a couple more questions, 1) when i have rooted and picked a good 2.3 rom with sense (suggestions please!) will i then be able to get the push facebook notifications??? 2)is a 2.3 rom a good idea as some apps are still not compatable (juice defender being one) 3)am i right in thinking that the app2sd just tells the software that a portion of the sd card is internal memory? also can i please get some input from people like me who are a little worried about doing this, who have now done it and are happy and if you can tell me the main advantages of rooting, what benifits it has done for you. Thanks everyone!!!
