    Sorry, I know this has been asked before but I have read quite a lot and feel my head is spinning with all the options - and I was hoping to get the most up-to-date advice!

    I am ready to try a new ROM and would appreciate some suggestions, please. The requirements I have, in order of preference are:
    • Suitable for HTC Desire
    • A2SD+ built-in
    • Stable
    • Good battery life
    • Reasonably fast
    I have seen mention of MIUI ROMs, which look interesting but, looking on their site I could not see a version for a plain old Desire - does anyone know if it is available or is this a non-starter?

    Thanks - I have actually installed another of VJ's ROM - a MIUI one - and it is very good. I was amazed how painless the installation was!

    A couple of things that do not seem right are:
    • Camera a bit dodgy, with lots of horizontal 'interference' lines
    • Wi-Fi tethering doesn't seem to work
    Looking at the thread for his CM10 ROM, this also mentions Wi-Fi Tethering as not working. Is this a common issue with most ROMs or have I just been unlucky looking at 2 with this problem?

    I don't use WiFi tethering very much, but it's always worked when I have.

    However, I've stuck with Gingerbread ROMs, so it might be a more common problem on JB - I can't say.
