    I successfully rooted, and loaded a Miui rom for my 2.2 desire for the first time, and there was a sort of adrenaline rush that I feel could be addictive.

    Anyway, could someone please tell me if I can load this rom: Miui XJ 1.9.16 GB 2.3.5 onto my froyo 2.2 desire, or is it only for phones that have updated to Gingerbread?

    Are Gingerbread roms only for Gingerbread? It's slightly confusing if you see where I'm coming from. :thinking:

    Thanks in advance!

    You can load any ROM onto your desire as long as it is meant for the desire in the first place be that Froyo,AOSP,Gingerbread or any of the sense ROMS.

    Some,however need some special requirements like Certain HBOOT which i couldnt tell you anything about as i just don't know.
    As long as a ROM says "requires Standard/default HBOOT" You should be ok. Some also require an EX2/3/4 partition on the SD card too. I think thats because the ROM is large and some of it goes on the SD.

    I hope someone else can verify what i said but im around 95% sure im right :)
    This is just stuff i have picked up on my time here.

    ohhh almost forgot to say this. ALWAYS DO A NANDROID BACKUP BEFORE A NEW FLASH.

    That's great news thanks! Now if someone could confirm this I might just try the Miui XJ Gingerbread rom.

    But just one more question for clarity, please...

    If I load this rom will it change my froyo 2.2 to gingerbread 2.3, or will my phone remain 2.2?

    If my question makes any sense!

    Your phone will be what ever the rom is,so if you flash MiuiXj 2.3 you will be on gingerbread because it is a gingerbread rom.
    Just like there's some froyo roms too.
    Just do a Nandroid backup before you flash anything.
