    Hey guys,

    I have had my Desire for around 8 months now and I have now got it exactly how I like it... I am using GingerVillain custom ROM with Apps2SD+, I have S-OFF, Using a custom kernel and much more!

    I also now know that I want to keep my Desire and upgrade it in 2012 when my contract is up.

    But I couldn't have done it without the help from all you awesome people on Android Forums! So in this post I just want to say thank you to people like SUroot, Rastaman-FB, Hadron, Usta, EddyOS, Kibbster, kewlbuddy and all the others who I haven't mentioned that have helped me with get my Desire how I like it!

    Thanks again, Aaron :)

    I might be leaving for the good ship Sensation once he unbranded handsets are about. I love my Desire but I've had it over a year now and need something new to play with

    I would love a Sensation but the thought of being stuck with Sense... shudder...

    Sensation opens new possibilities, but not before it is rooted and surrounded with couple of good custom ROMs...

    I really want a Sensation too but im keeping my Desire because I have only had it 8 months, I get an upgrade Jan 2012, and I don't really have the money for a new phone now + I love rooting and that stuff you get with the Desire :)

    Also williamj1 - you are one that i forgot to mention ;D

    I use Sense - it's the one thing I always come back to. AOSP ROMs just don't interest me

    Read a lot of bad things so far about the phone, no idea if it's ROM related or hardware though. Doesn't fill me with confidence

    I could of/should of put an identical post to this. Like you have my desire just how i want it and am one happy bunny. 1 that was missed out who i must give thanks to aswell is Infernal Byte.....The Root Forum guinea pig, without some of his escapades/solutions (rils mainly lol ) we'd probably all be that little less wiser. So thanks again to you all and Infernal byte. :D

    I think if the Sensation gets rooted, and lots of custom ROMS etc, then it could be great.
    Until then, I'm staying well clear.

    You should keep your Desire a bit longer EddyOS :p

    Being honest, reading the issues people are having on the Vodafone forum is making me think twice - depends on whether the unbranded handsets are better. There's already 3 RUU about for the unbranded Sensations so it looks like HTC are gearing up to update any initial bugs found in the Vodafone version

    Had a hold of an SGS2 the other day - it is nice but I can't bring myself to use TouchWank

    Lol yeah it's pretty horrible isn't it. Although the Sensation is nice why not do what I am doing, Keep your Desire a bit longer and save the money for something even better than Sensation. The Desire is still a great phone! But afterall it's your choice :)

    It is indeed my choice but I'm bored of the Desire. I need somehting new to play with. Ultimately, though, there'll always be something better. I'm at the point where I just want something to work and not have to bother about faffing about with rooting and the like and the Sensation (would appear) to do the job

    I for one wont be buying any phones this year! I am well happy with Desire atm. But I would be tempted into jumping the ship if my next phone has a massive rooting community like Desire.

    ajh94 Well-Known Member

    Yes the Desire has issues and you have to root to fix them... But isn't that half the fun?
  21. EddyOS

    EddyOS Well-Known Member

    Used to be, not any more. Only reason I root is to remove the apps I don't want and to use A2SD+ - that's it

    OK, the Sensation will have apps/widgets I'll never use but at least I'd have 1GB of space out the box. Last thing I'll do with my Desire is make my own official 2.3 ROM once the RUU has leaked and then I'll look for a new handset

    Ah right, I can perfectly understand that - If I had the money I would probably get a new phone but i'm gonna wait so I save money. Is the Desire definitely gonna get the Gingerbread update ota?

    EddyOS Well-Known Member

    Apparently so, there is a transcript between HTC and someone saying it is and it has Sense 2.1

    As always I'll believe when I see it but I'm already using a leaked version for the Desire in my ROM and it seems OK. No new Sense as yet but I'm sure it'll arrive

    Just wanted to say thanks to all as well. Had my Desire since last May. I have been tempted to root since Christmas. Finally took the plunge on Sunday after reading all the threads on here. Was bricking it. No need to though. Went a dream. Its like having a new phone all over again. So thank you to all who have posted info on rooting and installing rom's.

    I don't see the big problem with the newest version of touchwiz. I mean it's not perfect sure, but it has a lot of cracking features for a start. And a lot of it is stock.
    Plus, I would probably stick ADX launcher or something on it anyway. Not really a biggie for me, especially as it can be rooted.

    I'm eager to see reviews of the sensation. If the camera and things live up to that of the SGS2, then I'd probably choose the HTC. I've moaned a lot about them not being rootable lately. But I think I'm going to contradict myself a bit...

    I never disliked sense. I actually really liked it. I only rooted to get better storage. And once I rooted, I thought I might as well try new roms etc. From that, I moved to other ROMS.

    But don't get me wrong, I loved sense. As I say, if things like the camera, battery and so on turn out well, I'm sure I could cope. And if it gets rooted, even better. That's what keeps drawing me towards the samsung, the fact that its rootable. Shame it has no real dev community. Problem is, where will the Desire lot go? Cause I want to follow them :p

    I really doubt "new sense" will ever arrive for the Desire. It's already had Froyo, now Gingerbread. There is no real reason to support it beyond now, as soon the 18 month contract people will be upgrading. If it doesn't come in Gingerbread, I don't think it will ever come, as I don't think we will get any upgrades beyond gingerbread.

    Plus, with custom roms, who needs official stock OTA updates anyway :p
