    As far as I'm aware you can't unroot at all. You can flash back to an official rom though. Not sure how that would effect warranty.

    No networks on the UK (especially Virgin Mobile) know anything about this. I doubt Virgin even wants to either.

    Yea but if i rooted, and it had to go in for repair and i flashed back to original firmware , would HTC notice it had been rooted. Or does it not void warranty if rooted. If it only vids warranty with the flash rom then that's brilliant.

    Yes, it is (though it was there in 2.1 as well). I've been using it successfully in stock 2.1 and the two 2.2 ROMs I've tried.
    Yes, you can. There's a guide at theunlockr.com

    If anyone has tried out more than one of the 2.2 roms, could you start a new thread with any observations you have made to help people choose a good one? XDA developers now has a pile of new ones to try but the threads are all hundreds and hundreds of posts long. Are the differences just a couple of apps and wallpapers or are there significant differences that improve speed/battery life? Anyone know?

    Where did you get that from and was yours already rooted to allow you to do this ? Im a big fraidy cat when it comes to this, in case I brick my phone, but would love to do it

    A great idea and seconded, if anyone is up for it, each person would only put one post in the thread with the rom they used and the list of the benefits from it and no one would be allowed to discuss in the thread, if that persons particular suggestion etc works for you, then you thank the person only, that would keep the size of the thread down and allow people to easily read and find what they want to choose.

    Would the mods be able to prune this for those that comment in the thread ??????????

    Nah I rooted it man unbranded so simple to do no gold card needed, didnt use the one click method as I heard it makes changing roms not as simple as it is for me... once rooted I had some 2.1 rom then moved to what i have now, updated via rom manager (from the market)

    When is it going to be released and if so would we get the update alert on the phone to dowload from there or will we have to do like the iphone and download it through the the computer.

    Nobody knows the exact date (between now and christmas :) ) & you will get an update alert on the phone.

    Arghh wish mine wasnt the Orange branded one, it just seems behind the un-branded hanset.

    I could un-brand it but it just seems a long process and i wouldnt want anything to go wrong.

    I have an unbranded phone. Does this make it easier to apply a custom rom? i.e. it doesn't need to be rooted?

    You still have to root but it means there is no hassle at all with doing so, use the one-click method in the Root forum.

    Sorry, I know this thread started out talking about FroYo and not rooting/custom ROMS but I guess as we're talking about 2.2 ROMS it's still on-topic...

    I rooted my HTC Desire using unrevoked the other day (amazing how simple it is compared to some of the rooting methods I've read up on) and have installed ROM Manager. I've flashed the clockworkmod recovery and done a full backup of the current ROM in ROM Manager and backed up my apps & settings using Titanium.

    So... can I now just go to 'Download ROM' in ROM Manager (I have the paid version), select a ROM and install it? Or is there more to it than that? And if that's all there is to it, I guess I can flash back to my current ROM using the backup from within ROM Manager too right?

    Also, are there extra steps I need to do to get Apps2SD (the main reason I rooted the phone in the first place!) or will that all happen automatically when I install a new ROM in ROM Manager?

    Because mine is un-branded does that mean i wont be able to install the new software like you mention?

    guys, people say you need a gold card and then some say you dont :S, which is correct. as this site which im about to follow on rooting my desire says you do: How To Root Your HTC Desire & Add Apps2SD Nimbu . should i follow this guide if so where from and if not does anyone have a better link as i want this rom on my desire: [ROM-FroYo] Official Froyo HTC Sense ROM (16/07 v1.0c | OpenDesire Team) - xda-developers .

    thankyou, i want to do this perfectly and would love support as this is the first time im doing this. (i have a gsm unbranded and unrooted desire at the moment)

    p.s. i have bootloader 0.80 . on the guide it says its only for 0.75 or below..

    No download the rom of your choice then drop it to root of SD then goto install rom from sd card within rom manager...

    No it means you will be the first to get it as it needs no network branding..

    unbranded no gold card i had bootloader 0.80 took me 10 mins to root it

    So you used that root guide? And from which bit of that guide did you follow from since you didn't use a gold card.

    Guys, I'm rooting tomorrow and getting 2.2 with sense. Now I know all this was already discussed in detail, but I would like a compilation of answers, as I am a bit insecure about all this.

    1. If I root and put the custom rom, when the official update arrives, will I be able to put that official version instead of the current custom rom version?

    2. What is considered to be the best froyo+sense rom out there?

    3. Does anyone know if Shazam which now has unlimited tagging because I had a previous version installed will "remember" my licence (via my google account) after a reflash and a reinstall?

    I would really appreciate some answers. Thanks!
