    Well read the link that pilotcharles gave you then you can go into the Hacks section and all the developers there have threads about their own ROMs. Read through them and see which one you might like and follow that developer's instructions on installation.

    Someone walks into a store, gets to the middle of it and looks at their empty cart. "Help, my cart is empty", they yell out. ;)

    What would you like to put into your cart? There is some reason you are looking to root your phone. Let us know where you want to go, and we'll help you get there.

    At the top of the forum is a link that says Forum. Click that and you can see the various sections of the forum. You'll see the hacking and roms section, and you're already posting here in the hacking help section so you are on the right track. Review the roms. They all have screenshots, instructions, and list what is contained within them.

    You've checked to see if you are rooted and think you are. Do you have a link to the instructions you used to root? You must have installed a rom if you obtained root. Which one did you install? Your cart might already be fully loaded:)

    You said your phone is empty? No calendar, weather, contacts, email, etc?
