    Hello everyone this is my first post on this forum! :D
    Ive been thinking of rooting for a while now as my phone are being slow at many points. So i could use some good information about ROM and Rooting.

    What ROM are best for HTC Sensation 1 gen running 4.0.3?

    And anyone who got any clue on how to find the official rom for my mobile in case i need to get it repaired? (Im from sweden)

    Thanks in advance! :)

    There is no 'best' really, it's personal preference.

    You need to unlock your bootloader via hTCDev, use fastboot to install a custom recovery, then you can root (or install a custom ROM with root).

    I'm about to ask a really stupid question so please go easy.

    I THINK I've currenly got cyanogenmod version 7 on my htc sensation, my question is - how do I know what is the latest stable version that is released for my phone? Have I already got the latest version? Or is CM9 now available to download?

    Many thanks for the reply. I've even more questions now!

    In regards to the link you've provided to download CM9:

    1 - Does pyramid correspond to the HTC Sensation?
    2 - There are different versions, all that have been last modified on a different day, how do I know which one is the version for my particular handset?

    What is the main difference supposed to be between nightly builds and stable mods? (according to this - HTC Sensation | CyanogenMod)

    I'm happy to wait for the stable mod to be released, the thing is though, when you click any link on the cyanogenmod website, they don't provide any roms?

    Pyramid = HTC's internal name for the Sensation, you'll see it in fasboot.

    As for the date, newer = better, generally.

    There is no 'stable' for anything for CM9 right now, so don't worry about that.

    Once you've done the Dev unlock bit you can go straight to JPBear

    You always install via CWM, buy you need to use HTC Dev to get CWM.
