    Its been a while since I rooted my Desire and installed leeDroid v2.3d with app2sd+.

    I was wondering if there is any update to this sense ROM and whether I should install a new ROM - even gingerbread?

    I had a look on the leeDroid website but couldnt make much sense of it - there seems to be a version 3 out.

    Should I download and try: LeeDrOiD_V3.0.8.2_GB_A2SD.zip

    What can I expect to be different?

    I think this is the xda thread?
    [ROM]LeeDrOiD V3.0.8.2 GB 28th Jun | Android 2.3.3 | OTA | A2SD or Data++ | TV Anim - xda-developers

    I have just made a nandroid backup :)

    Yeah I know but I see there is also A froyo 2.5 leeDroid update. Should I just go straight for the Gingerbread one?

    I would.

    2.5 is the final LeeDroid Froyo release, so there'll be no further development of it and it probably won't be very different from what you have.

    2.5 is just a fairly small update from where you are now. I'm still using it though, waiting for the 'proper' release of LeeDroid 3 - based on a WWE rom which I hope will come with a newer version of Sense.

    There's a lot more missing from the v3 rom (compared to 2.5) than you will gain from it being GB based although it is catching up.

    Updated to leedroid ok and phone looks as normal with some minor changes..

    I read reading about some new features of gingerbread on this site:
    28 Best Android 2.3 Gingerbread Tips & Tricks

    For example about the gallery feature and spreading a stack, but my gallery is just the same as before? Any ideas about this?

    Because LeeDroid 3 is GingerBread plus Sense 1.0. Hence you are still using the same Sense launcher, and so it looks the same. Go into menu->about phone and check what ROM and android version you are using.

    The article you link has images of the Nexus S - if that look is what you were after, you want a non-Sense Gingerbread ROM.
