Root do i need a rom?


so i like the stock ROM from htc. now that froyo is live there are a few things i would like to change and im not sure if it need a ROM for it or can i just root my phone with simple root or unrevoked and add / change the files i need to achieve what im lookin for. here is the list.

status bar color
Lock screen
Custom boot screen.
Unlock the FPS

Do i need to install any roms for this or are there ways to get these things without getting a rom. I kno u can DL lockbot and yada yada for the lock screen

Thanks in advance

You can't get custom roms until you root. You can't root until someone figures out how to break into a 2.2 system.

status bar color - maybe with a custom home app like aHome
Lock screen - see above
Custom boot screen - Need root
Unlock the FPS - Need root
