    Hi,

    Sorry for the noob question but I looked and can't find the answers I need.

    I plan to root my Desire this weekend. From what I gather after that I can install 'ROM manager' and then run different ROMs from there.

    Is this all correct so far? Have I missed anything?

    Then...

    Once I'm at this stage where do I get the ROMs from?

    Is there a good resource somewhere detailing what ROMs have what and where to download them?

    I want to go to vanilla FroYo, can anybody recommend a ROM?

    Thanks you very much for any help given.

    This should be really be in the Root section, however, you are correct so far. Once rooted install ROM manger and you will be able to backup and flash roms directly from it. You will also be able to download certain roms through it, although some of the best roms are not hosted on it. Head over to the XDA Developers forum, and you will find all the roms you need.

    Thanks for that.

    I did mean to put this in the root section, hence the double post.

    Mods, feel free to delete this!

    DO NOT USE ROM MANAGER!!!! We have a sticky telling you why in the root forum. Everything can be done from recovery once rooted, just as easily. head over to xda for roms and their requirements.

    Rom manager is a serious no no, you brick your phone using it then only you're to blame, read the sticky if you want to know more.

    Also, about rooting, I'm sorry to sound rude but please read the sticky, we get asked the same question so many times a week, hence the sticky.

    Once you have read it and if you don't understand something then fair enough, pop back and ask or send someone a pm if it's just a quick question.

    Mark, if your phone is the 4G EVO (as opposed to the LTE, Shift 4G, or V 4G) then the best place to ask would be EVO 4G - All Things Root - Android Forums. Rooting instructions are generally phone specific, so you need to ask in your own device's forum.
