    I am looking at buying a HTC Desire, but would like to try rooting it and loading custom firmware.

    I am sure I read somewhere that it is not possible to Root a phone that has already been updated with the standard 2.2 OTA update.

    Does anyone know if that is true, and if so if there is a workaround?

    It is possible, I have done it using the unrEVOked method, you need to downgrade to 2.1 and HBOOT 0.80 first tho.... I am now running a rooted stock 2.2 rom on my unbranded desire, works great!
