    Hi
    So I have my Desire for about 8 months and it gets bit booring and I would like to root and put on new nice ROM with cool icons, not like Android original ones which are difrent from each other.
    How long time does it take to root and install new ROM?
    What ROM would you recommend?
    How safe is it?
    Can you link me to any rooting instructions?

    Sorry for my bad english guys ;)

    Haven't rooted yet, but soon I'll do it when I have more free time.
    I think I'll go with RCMix S v1.7.2 Evolutionary Sense or Robo's RCMixS ROM.
    When I root, what if I want to go back on defult HTC Desire ROM, can I do that? And what about updates?

    You press power to select recovery from the HBOOT screen (white). Once you are in recovery (black, green text) you use the trackpad to select, same as when Android is running.

    Pressing power when in recovery just turns the screen off.

    Don't worry, you aren't the first, and won't be the last ;)

    Which is why the rooting faq states to use the trackball. I put a lot of effort into writing that. Does anyone actually read it?!
