    That depends on what version of the OS you have on your phone. If you have the latest 2.1 you need to return to version 2.0.1. Once your get 2.0.1 installed you can root ands move to 2.1.

    Here are two links

    that you should read. They will help you decide if you want to root.

    If you decide to root and have problems someone will be here to help should you have problems.

    Yes you can. Watch the video. It will show you how to install SPRecovery which will then allow you to install a Rom.
