    I'm looking at doing this process but i don't quite understand it yet properly.

    I'd like my Galaxy S to:

    1. Tasker App be able to change GPS settings.
    2. Use my camera below 15% battery.
    3. Record phone calls, with both audios and not just using the speaker phone.

    and maybe:

    4. Play MP4 files.

    Is it correct i need to install a custom ROM to do these things?
    Also do most of the ROMs, Darky, cyanogen etc support the things i want to do?

    Ok, so i have 2.3.3 XXJVO installed from KIES to start with.

    From what i have read it's a good idea to install ClockworkMod recovery first, before trying any custom ROMs. However i need to get rooted first?

    Then i have no idea which ROM i actually want to install, all i can find info on is how to install specific ROMs? Not which ROM wouldbe best for my needs.

    So the process as i understand it at the moment:

    1. Get rooted
    2. Put on Clockwork recovery
    3. Flash my custom ROM

    I must of been reading for the last 10 hours and my brain is fried.

    I have tried to get root by using gingerbreak, however that did not work.

    Any pointers, tutorials or help would be gratefully received.

    Thanks
    Sean
