    I literally just got hold of my Desire - and i wouldn't mind rooting it, i have all the kit to do so.

    My build version is 1.1561.10.10 CL1551070 - so my question here is where can I find the latest Generic HTC ROM to root my Desire to?

    I'm currently on the Orange UK branded, though i'm aware there's no backup ROM for orange as of yet i still want to go through with the generic root. I got the guide and what not.

    Just need the latest Generic ROM!

    Any help would be much appreciated :)

    Latest is 1.21.405.2 BUT it SIM locks the phone on Orange debranded phones so you'll need to buy an unlock code if you wanna use other SIM cards in it.

    It's in the ROM Dev forum over on XDA-Devs - it does update your HBOOT as well as the radio so bare this in mind before flashing it as it can't be reversed for warranty issues (although some people have all but got a solution to get around this)
