So i have been playing with my inspire and so far it's been inspiring . Glad to have this community here, all the posts here have been very helpful. ANy help/thoughts on the following will be greatly appreciated. 0 - what's the different between rooting and flashing with a new rom 0.1 - is this a good time to flash or should I wait until the phone is a bit older and there are better roms/techniques? 1 - I am wondering what tutorial/document/video I should follow to learn how to root and flash a more efficient rom without the att bloatware 2 - Is there a recommended rom that has htc sense and is still fast (not that sense is slow, in fact I like it and would like to keep it even if I flash the rom)? I mostly use email, calendar, texting, maps, browser, navigation, pandora and some other random apps. 3 - I notice that all the apps keep running in the background (pandora, facebook, tweeter), even though I haven't started them. I don't even use facebook and tweeter (yes )..is there a way to just uninstall these apps? I am sure I will have more questions ..I am glad I switched to android.
