So I spent about 30 minutes reading/researching and have some questions. I'm thinking there's probably a couple FAQ's I should have read that I didn't see, but here goes anyway. 1) Do I have to root to run custom ROMs? It looked like that was the case but I wasn't sure. 2) Is loading a ROM similar to applying an update via the update.zip at boot? I understand there are different tools for ROM's and I've watched a couple youtubes on it, but that part wasn't clear to me. 3) I thought I read that froyo hasn't been rooted yet. So would I have to go back to 2.1 to mess with custom ROM's? 4) Can I still use SPRecovery on froyo? I'd had it originally when I was on 2.1 but ended up taking my phone back to stock so I could force the OTA update. Sorry for the n00b questions. I honestly did spend time reading the FAQs but didn't see these answered in the ones I read.
