    Welcome to the forum and dark side (rooted).

    Check out the hacking section for available roms. Pick two or three and install. Make notes on what you like and do not. Notice what rom performs best on your particular phone and stick with it.

    Make a backup between the installs and you should be fine.

    Welcome to the site! Glad to have you. There is a whole lot of great info on the site and the ppl on here are fantastic to get tips from.
    My phone D2 isnt rooted but I will suggest a few things to you from what I have learned on this site. DONT use any "TASK KILLERS"! Even the very name of the app is sending chills up everyones spines at this point. Also...live wallpaper is "cool" but it is a battery killer and most will make your phone laggy. WIFI will be a battery killer also IF leave it on with no WIFI in the area. Best to get a profiler that will pick up your location and allow it to turn on/off your WIFI depending where you set WIFI hot spots to be. GPS is ok to LEAVE ON all the time due to it is only used "on demand" by any app that needs it. Keeps you from having to toggle it every time an app needs it.
    Lastly....IMO...get "Beautiful Widgets" app. As name implies....is beautiful. OH...and get "ANGRY BIRDS" game (free). Others might want to add some tips as well and some might disagree with some of the things Ive suggested, but, thats all they are is suggestions.
