    Whew... I just rooted and installed the "Official Froyo HTC Sense ROM" from AdamG.

    It seems to look and feel exactly like 2.1, which wasn't what I was expecting. I was expecting the lockscreen to be different (the horizontal one). Is that a feature of Sense? Do I HAVE to get rid of Sense to install that?

    Also: Now I am unable to add custom fields to even my Google contacts (earlier I couldn't do it for phone contacts, but it was possible for Google contacts). Is that a problem with this ROM? What ROM should I install to have this feature??


    Thanks a lot!

    As far as I am aware, the vertical lock is what sense adds to the lockscreen. The horizontal one is group vanilla.

    Is there any way to flash a new lockscreen?

    there's an app caled lockbot on market that, I think, allows you to set the lock method... worth a look

    Thanks a lot, I've tried that but am not satisfied with it.. :(
    I need to get the full version for the froyo lock.
    Also it doesn't integrate very well with the OS, and sometimes causes delays.
