    Ok here is my problem. I installed unrEVOked3. It says it was successful. I downloaded ROM manager,busybox, and Titanium Backup. Busybox says my phone is rooted. I have a USCC american HTC Desire. I tried to Install Defrost 5.7 when I try to install in it looks like all is well, then it goes to a white screen with green HTC logo. I then have to do a battery pull and restore to get back to my phone being usable. I am getting a list of saved backups because I have been trying repeatedly. Can anyone help with this. Thanks:thinking::thinking::thinking::thinking:

    You need a CDMA-compatible ROM

    Going by the thread on XDA I'd say no it's not. I can suggest any either as I'm on a GSM Desire

    First time boots on new ROMs are long, be patient, some takes up to 15 minutes. Also ensure you got the right CDMA or GSM ROM.

    Actually, it would be the boot animation that it hangs on for a while after the HTC screen. defrost is not CDMA compatible. Not many roms are. There is not currently any 100% working roms. There is a list of roms in this thread. They all state what is and is not working.
