    Oh yeah, I remember now! (sorry...been a busy morning...:)).

    Sit back and enjoy Froyo for a little while... Then, if you decide to "try on" another ROM:

    - research and download another ROM to your /sdcard
    - make sure you phone is fully-charged and you've got space on your /sdcard
    - boot into recovery
    - make a Nandroid backup of your current setup
    - do your wipes (at least data/factory reset and it doesn't hurt to wipe dalvik-cache too)
    - flash your new ROM
    - reboot and re-enjoy
    - rinse and repeat the above as needed

    Cheers!

    Not at all... By the way, I've only ever briefly played with active / live wallpapers...they look cool, but I would assume that they would suck the life out of my battery quicker than I would like.

    I don't really know if live wallpapers are "smart" enough to not consume system resources when they are off, not being displayed (i.e., hidden behind an active app's window, etc.). They might not be too bad if so...

    Let us know how things behave for you.

    Cheers!

    Create a 2GB file on your SD card and format it ext3, then download a gentoo stage 1 install, and unpack it. Then chroot your image and start compiling. Your phone will probably get pretty hot during the compile but it is something you could only do as root. :)
