    well if you have rommanager there are roms on there u just download and install...or u can dowload the rom of your choice put it on the root of your sdcard (no folders) go into recovery select install rom from sdcard and enjoy...make sure to wipe data and cache to ensure a clean install...also bfore anything!!! MAKE A BACK UP of your current set up to have a stable restore point

    Why are you installing a third party ROM? All third party ROMs have stability issues and bugs. They are created by people who are not Devs for a living. There is nothing useful you can do with a third party ROM that you cant do with the stock ROM. If you're going to do anything just root and remove bloatware from the stock ROM. Dont even think about any of these unstable bug ridden ROMs.

    I disagree, one of the best perks of being rooted is trying roms, and a lot of them rock! Yes some have bugs, but they are usually not buggy enough not to use...

    I dont know about you but i rooted my phone to customize it...and for the ability to run vanilla android the way it was meant to be...and these roms give u different flavors to try out they each have their own spin on "stock ROM"...and without these devs that do cook up the roms we probably wouldnt get some of the upgraded OS depending on the phone you have, they give us the ability to experiance the goodies for yourself...wether you want to use them or not is totally up to you...

    Again, there is nothing useful you can do with a third party ROM that you cant do with the stock rom. This is a fact. All that you will be getting with third party ROM is instability and bugs. Take note...

    you'll find all sorts of opinions, but personally i am addicted to flashing roms. we have some phenomenal developers on here who have given us some amazing roms, with some great features. you will see it repeated on here time and time again - every rom runs differently on each individual phone. if you're rooted, why not try them out, and find if one isn't right for you?! if you don't find one that you like, you can always just stick with stock. choices - that's the beauty of being rooted!!

    to flash a rom, here is the method i follow, and it has worked countless times. as an aside, i always recommend dl'ing a rom thru your pc, and then putting it on your sdcard, as opposed to using Rom Mgr. in my experience (and many others on here), RM can be a little glitchy. it has some great uses, but installing a completely new OS is something that needs to go glitch-free:

    1. backup your apps with TiBu (or thru Astro)
    2. create a backup/nandroid of your current rom (so you have something to fall back on if you experience any serious problems flashing a new rom)
    3. boot into recovery
    4. wipe data/factory reset
    5. wipe cache
    6. go into partitions menu, and format boot and format system

    7. install rom zip from sdcard
    8. reboot
    IMPORTANT - after you sign into Google, and it syncs your phone, don't touch your phone until the market completely downloads all your apps!
    9. boot into recovery
    10. flash theme (if you desire something other than stock)
    11. reboot
    12. boot into recovery
    13. flash kernel
    14. reboot
    15. enjoy!

    Complete step-by-step tutorial with pics can be found in my signature, though huskerkate summed it up very well!
