    Having successfully S-Off and rooted my HTC desire I then made the mistake of using ROM Manager to install Oxygen Custom Rom. I am now stuck on the Oxygen splash screen and don't seem to be able to get away from it. I didn't back up my old ROM before installing Oxygen. Is there anything I can do? Any help would be hugely appreciated. Thanks.

    All sorted - wiping cache and data and rebooting got me there in the end.

    Well, don't use ROM Manager again. It has been known to cause many issues with this phone.

    Go to XDA, here, a link because i'm nice like that.

    Pick the ROM you want.

    Put the ROM on your SD, in the root directory ( not in a folder ) You don't need to have it like this, it's just easier.

    Phone off.
    turn it on Holding Volume Down.
    Select Recovery.
    Factory Reset/Wipe Data
    Wipe Cache.
    Install from SD.
    Select ROM.
    Select Yes.

    usually we suggest to Nandroid but you have nothing to back up it seems.

    I don't know it ROM Manager Wipes your phone or anything.

    Note: This will cause you to lose everything on the phone. Not the SD though.
