    Hi guys, I just can't wait for the Gingerbread update that roll out slowly. So I decided to root my phone and install HTC Sensation Rom on it. It's very cool very smooth. Go check it out guys:

    I'm assuming this is flashed just like a regular rom? Backup current date, wipe, install then reboot?

    Is there a link to very clear installation instructions for the virtuous unity (v-2.39.0.zip) rom on to the My Touch 4G?

    My MT4G seems to be acting crazy and HTC suggested loading a new rom.

    T Mobile store guy ( a nice guy at that!) could not reboot using a special T Mobile sd card made to reboot this phone, so I must do it myself.

    Since the phone is no longer supported by HTC any more it was suggested by the HTC CSR on the phone I find a suitable rom and install it my self.

    When I attempt to completely reboot the phone (down volume> press power button> scrool to reboot, hit reboot) stuff happens, all apps still appear, even those I have manually uninstalled.

    If I do reboot from inside the phone : Settings: Phone and SD card: Reboot, ... same thing, all apps appear and messages come up that indicate I am best to wipe the phone and start from scratch with a clean and new functioning ROM. I discovered Virtuous Unity ROM in my research.


    So a new ROM may in fact be in order. Without pre-installed or any apps. I am ready to start afresh.


    I am new at this ROM procedure, never before rooted a phone or loaded a new rom.

    So I also need to know how to make my phone (MT4G) ready to be rooted with the Virtuous_unity-2.39.0.zip.

    A step by step walk through will be greatly appreciated.

    Please assume I know nothing.

    Am starting with a phone with Android Version: 2.3.4

    HTC Sense 2.1

    Software 2.32.532.1

    Please let me know.


    I downloaded the virtuous _unity.zip, 450MB, file onto my PC and am awaiting direction.

    I have a blank sd card ready to go. A USB cable ready to use.

    Am unsure what to do next.

    Thanks in advance,
    Robert
