    I know that the roll out is next week, but I also know that it will not come with wireless hotspot, which is something I wanted for a while.

    Also, I would like to have flash, I don't know if having a rom would screw that up for some reason.

    I'm trying to find the best rom for 2.2 also so if any could help me out that would be awesome

    Thanks

    Yes. Just my opinion of course.

    Let me tell you what I think just based on my experience here in the Forum.

    Anybody that asks "should I root" is really saying "I'm getting ready to root.";)

    As far as Custom Roms, everybody has a favorite and they are going to say that theirs is the best. That's something you just have to figure out on your own.

    And by the way. Unless you simply don't read anything but your own threads, the update has been on going for a few days now. Not next week. It should be completed in the next 4 days (hopefully).
