    I have never lost anything on my SD card. Plus contacts are backed up with Google. You can back up pics and files with dropbox. Its free to create an account

    Well just keep an eye out for ota updates and you can unroot, get the update, and root again. That's what I plan on doin for the 2.3 (gingerbread) update

    Congrats on the successful root and to see about the rom's and all i would check out the Dinc sub-forum and see which roms are out and which one appeals to your needs. I think i have posted a couple links referring to the sub-forum. Just look at them and read the posts about each rom and see what other users have said about the reliability, if its stable or not (stable means like no force closes and such), and what they say about the features. There is a lot to read in the subforums but it will def help you make the decision.

    Hello, o got rid of bloatware when i switched to liberty rom just simply bc the creators of liberty didnt put the bloatware programs in the rom. Thats how i got rid of mine but on my stock backup all the bloatware and stock programs are still up there.

    You can also get an app called Titanium Backup its in the market and the paid version allows you to freeze the app so it cant be opened until you unfreeze it. I believe also you can have an app like root explorer or for a File manager and just delete the programs.

    I think the link above will give you some good info

    Tell me why I should root this phone :) The last phone I did, it was only to remove bloat. My only issue with this phone is I seem to only have a small amount of available ram. I don't believe I have anything installed that would use so much, but that's why I'm really asking about root :)
