    ... Do I lose all of my apps? If so, how would I go about getting all my apps back?

    You get this little guy (see attached pic) added to your app drawer.

    If you install a ROM your home screens might get cleared off but you will have all of your apps and data still on the phone. This is not a bad thing because if you run a ROM like Bug-less beast and get the 2 additional screens you will want to take time to re-org everything.

    I rooted installed petes bugless beast and overclocked last week. I used this thread as a guide...

    I read the all the instructions several times...I downloaded all the files to my laptop..and I read thru the thread to see where others were having issues...and then I made sure that I understood everything. then i did it...and it went with out a hitch and I am very pleased with myself!
