    Using villainrom 10.3, very stable, runs fast, can be overclocked which makes it much snappier. Can choose between sense ui or stock android home screens, friends stream included and has its own updater.

    Custom ROMs aren't always perfect. Sometimes there will be bugs, but lets just say the devs are a lot quicker than HTC when it comes to releasing updates ;)

    You can always reinstall the official firmware via the PC. Or, restore the backup you make during the rooting process.

    Standard Taiwan HTC 2.1 repack. I can't be bothered suffering the endless bugs that Villiain and the other hackers continually introduce due to lack of source/knowledge/testing.

    Of the custom ROMS (rather than unmolested repacks), Sense was the best IMHO too. It has less bugs than Villiain and did not need patching every couple of days. I haven't tried the latest custom ROMS based of the proper GSM Hero 2.1 code from the Taiwan release, as frankly, there is no point, when I can run the real deal.

    I've been using the MoDaCo rom based on the Taiwanese GSM 2.1 rom, and have found it to be fantastic.

    It's all down to personal opinion, but from my perspective I am very happy with VillainROM 10.3.3, coupled with myLegend theme 1.3.3 &
