    I updated last week with the Froyo that was released (unrooted at the time) and I am bored so I did the Easy Root.

    What do you guys recommend I do? What's the most popular Rom? And easiest way to install it?

    Did you also get ROM Manager, if so just select back up current ROM. It's just something to fall back on in the event something goes wrong when flashing a new ROM or installing a new theme/kernel.

    Awesome, have fun! One piece of advice though - always start with the "stock" ROM first; in other words, I try not to install a ROM, theme and kernel all at once. I'll first flash the dev's stock version of the ROM and run it a few days. Then add a theme and wait a few days, etc. This way if things start acting weird you'll have a good idea if it was a theme or kernel.

    Again, have fun ... the addiction begins now :laugh:

    Another n00b question, I think I'm missing something. Every custom rom thread I go in just shows the download for the current version (and everything that is new to that version) but I think I need the actual rom on my phone before I can update it to the current version. Is that right? And if so where can I get these (BB or Chevy for example)?

    No, you don't need to start at the first version of the ROM. In other words, if you want Simply Stunning 4.6 you don't need to go to 4.5 first. All the current version of the ROMs include what was in the previous versions plus more tweaks and bug fixes. So, actually it's better to start with the latest version because the known kinks have been worked out.

    Nope just download the current version(they are full ROMs) and follow the instructions listed and you'll be good to go.

    $.02, spend it as you please.
