    He is letting those who use the LeeDroid rom know that a new release is coming.

    I Have a HTC desire which is on Froyo 2.2.

    I have recently rooted the device which works great. Installed Titanium backup which works great also.

    I now want to install the Leedroid rom. Will I be able to do this with no issues as I have the latest version of Froyo installed.

    I have heard somewhere that I need to downgrade before I install this rom, is this correct?

    Thanks

    I upgraded from LeeDroid 2.2b to LeeDroid 2.2f last night
    works great!
    i am testing the battery at the moment.
    seems like the older radio file was better for the battery life.

    I am looking at installing a custom rom which is 2.2, I recently rooted my HTC Desire as I am sick of waiting for Virgin to release 2.2 via OTA, what is the best rom to use and whats is the best way to update my phone to a custom 2.2 rom.

    there is no "best" rom as its down to your own preferences

    use recovery to flash the zip

    I used unrevoked to root, it was very simple but reading on here will help you understand what to do, I flashed with Leedroid 2.2d and it worked fine although I have now updated to 2.2f.

    Once you are up and running make sure you do a nandroid backup and also get Titanium Backup and once you have everything set up how you like it run that.

    The only issues I have had is with overclocking the cpu and making the fone unstable but all I did was run nandroid and it fixed everything.

    One last thing there are really 2 types of rom, sense and non sense its up to you what you go for I chose Leedroid because I think sense is great.

    Good luck

    Unless you keep an eye on his mini site or on the xda forums then no I dont think you would know if a new release was coming out.

    Just thought it may be useful, which is more than I can say for your contribution in this instance......:thinking:

    Depends if you want sense still or would like a vanilla android ROM?

    I was using sense ROMS until about a week ago but slowly I started incorporating the android dialler and other bits into my sense ROMs as I preferred them. Realised last week I might as well just flash a vanilla ROM and have not looked back since. Also now I don't have any sense stuff installed I have about 40mb of extra space :D

    Personally I would try with something like Teppic's rooted sense rom or LeeDroid, play around with it modding things and if you start to not use the sense stuff then try Vanilla.

    Thats how I got started on AOSP. I started removing rosie from Modaco and was already using Launcher pro. At that stage there is no point having a Sense rom. I resized my system partition to 120MB. Would need close to 250MB for a sense rom.
