    What is the actual difference between the normal Desire vs the Black Desire ?

    I have the normal one, stock rom 2.2 froyo but over the past few weeks it got scratched by my cousin and it just didnt look all that anymore and I complained to orange about the shit memory and shit battery so they are sending me a Black one

    Are the differences just cosmetic as in just the colour or is it also with the software etc ?

    The Bravo board is the same in both phones, difference is cosmetic only with some exceptions! When the Desire was new the black was exclusive to Orange customers, I think that's changed now but the guts are the same, only the one you'll get back from Orange will probably be a reconditioned model, will be locked to the Orange network and will be full of Orange bloatware.

    Sorry.

    Well the title asked for a comparison of black orange v brown orange so your answer was spot on.

    Black may look nicer outside but they both have the same shite rom build on the inside

    And they will laugh at you and send it anyway. Suprised they are sending you a phone because of you hassle with memory and battery life.... Should we all send our phones in? lol :D

    Weird thing is Im not even insured and yet the give me phones :/

    I signed a 2 year contract with a hero a week before the desire came out, and after a few months of claiming "signal issues" they offered me a blackberry, desire or iphone as a free upgrade 4 months into my new one. Im like one of those nagging customers who is never satisfied.

    And btw, whats the best back up app for non rooted phones ?

    This post has some instructions. They were aimed at a slightly different problem, so point 4 isn't quite what you want, but otherwise should be what you are asking for.

    Note that as I permanently rooted before this came out, I've never tried it myself.

    OT but,

    The removal of system apps works for some and not for others. Its the whole s-off thing.

    1 guy said it rebooted after deleting every app, so I guess that was doing it outside of the android environment and was successful.

    Back on Topic, yes you can backup with the temp root fine, no problems.
