    I have a desire from U.S. Cellular. Currently I don't know of any way to restore my phone to us cellular branding if i debrand it? Must I have a phone unlock code? It seems intimidating but I would love to have froyo and get updates directly from HTC. Any input would be much appreciated.

    Don't think you need any codes. Just need to reflash the OEM RUU to make it vanilla again.

    If I'm not wrong once you debrand your phone you will still receive OTA updates from the carrier. The only points based on my own experiences r:

    a) once OTA update is there if debranded only with the gold card inserted you will be guaranteeing a smooth update without breaking hardware functions i.e.: wireless, data connectivity and all.
    b) therefore it would be recommended to downgrade the ROM and then apply the OTA carrier update and then you are done back to the stock ROM.

    Not sure if everybody agree.

    Also I was going to backup apps/settings with mybackup but I've seen some bad reviews of it and I have yet to find another app to backup my settings.... Not just apps?

    Would it just be easier to root?

    It wouldn't be easier to root but it opens more doors. See the rooting sub forum
