    HI,

    I want to install android 2.3 in my htc desire, so need to root it. But wondering, if we root our phone, and flash custom image.

    If htc released official android 2.3, could we recover and install back the official instead after the device been rooted with custom image?

    Thanks

    You can RUU, but an official Android image as you call it will unroot your phone.

    Sorry, may you explain what is RUU?

    You mean we can make it as original again similar as before rooting?

    Rom Update Utility - a program which loads a complete set of software onto the phone. Load it onto a Windows PC, plug the phone in, run the program. Will load stock firmware, unroot and wipe the phone.

    It's in the FAQ (find one of SUroot's posts - the link is in his sig)
