    Hi All

    Pretty new to all this rooting stuff.... planning my root and upgrade to 2.2...

    getting very confused with all these different roms and then 'radio' ( what is that?? cant be the fm radio i think!...)

    I think I can handle the root, but just looking for a 2.2 rom which i dont need to keep updating and allows/help me install apps on sd.... im always running out and want to try nfs shift!

    pls offer links to such rom and advice on this radio thing!

    much app

    The radio is the software used to get a signal on your phone. Some roms include it. Others often have links to install a specific radio. If you download it separate, you often have to put it on your SD card, call it update.zip and use the option apply update.zip from recovery.

    As for which is best, that's subjective and I haven't tried then all.

    Personally I like modaco roms which also include radio.

    I'm sure other people will gave their say shortly. If going for modaco, definitely wait for the full release of r8 but if you cant wait, I'm sure other options will be posted soon. R8 is stable but not the fastest out there. Faster than stock 2.2 though by quite a bit. Modaco are as close to stock as you can get I'd say, but tweaked and improved
