    Hey all,

    couple of quick questions i really hope you can help me answer!

    I rooted my HTC desire, using unrEVOked following SUroot's guide - all seemed to work fine (a simple and great guide i might add)

    I'm now looking to flash a ROM onto my device, but wish to back up the information there so i can do a wipe. So, i downloaded Titanium back up (pro version) and it says it doesnt have root access, i read somewhere that i might need busybox to get Titanium back up working? (but isn't this something that comes within a ROM?! - thus, i need something in a rom, to make a backup before flashing a rom?!?!)

    A little confused right now, im sure i have got muddled up somewhere along the line and any helpful guidance would be much appreciated.

    Cheers

    Callum
