    ^^ Yep you are right .... seems like we are about to get there ....... I was reading the same thread and decided to share it here when I saw you already have ......good to see people with the same interest .... :)

    [ROOT] unrEVOked 3.2: one-click root for GSM & CDMA Desire - xda-developers

    PS :: Also the card I have 8GB SDHC, class is not written on it ...... so I will assume its Class 2, or maybe there is some other way of finding that out ..... I will anyhow buy an 8GB Kingston Class 6 card soon ...... 720p videos seems to run much smoother off a class 6 card than a class 2 ....

    I tried that pull method to extract the application from phone mem, but it seems we need super user access to PULL the application.

    EDIT :: The good new is the latest rooting by revoke will not only root bootloader 0.93 but also provide us with superuser access ......

    Okay, so I bought the screen protector from Ebay and I spent nearly one hour trying to put it on and must have tried atleast 100 times. It is IMPOSSIBLE to apply without a thousand air bubbles in between. In the end I got so frustrated that I threw away the screen protector. I ended up wasting 200 Rs. [​IMG]

    Guys ..... tell me something ..... I dont know if its a problem is with me or its a generic ......

    The problem is I can not keep different wallpapers along different "Home replacement" application, I have tried like 4,5 home replacement apps like aHome, Launcher Pro, GDE, Open Home, AWD etc. Everything works great, except I CANNOT keep different wallpapers across two home replacement apps. If I change a wallpaper in one HR app it changes in all, which is frustrating ........I mean HR apps are suppose to give you an entirely new desktop to work with, and with the wall paper same it does not give you that feel ........has anybody else tried home replacement and faced similar deal .....

    @Sujoyp ...... you should have gone to some local phone shop, they know how to fit the screen protector ......

    Guys ...... if anyone has noticed, taking screenshot of your phone, without rooting is impossible, well atleast untill I stunbled upon this article ...... as you must be knowing I am not rooted yet, as I am still waiting for 2.2 OTA to be rooted so my screenshot application stopped working and I was looking to find a way to capture screen shots for my phone, when I got this article .....

    Taking screenshots on an Android-based phone

    it uses same technique of using the Android SDK which I shared with you, couple of pages back (for getting apps installed on SD). You just have to plug in the phone with USB debugging mode enabled (assuming you already have installed the drives if you had tried the previous tut) go to tools folder, double click DDMS file, which would open a window (you might need to do this twice it you receive some error in the first go), select the phone from the left widow (starts with H) . Press CTRL-S, that would bring the Device Screen Capture inter-phase showing you the screen that is currently displaying on your device ......thats it you just need to click in save and save the file ..........NEAT!!

    Waiting game would never end, in this ever changing world of technology and gaming. There would be something "better" and "new" always around the corner .....

    As for the new HTC Sense, officially its not announced for current Desire but XDA developers have wasted no time porting Desire HD ROM on other hardware ......... The ROM got dumped few days ago courtesy XDA member dealer75 ... though its for development currently but we can soon expect the public release....... :D .......waiting might not be a good option ...:D

    ^^ You wont get a working piece of Desire on demo for sure, heck even GS has only its working replica on stand ..... the only way is if any of your friend has it, or rip youtube, by watching almost every video for Desire (atleast thats what I did)

    Okay so any views on which are the best custom ROMs for Desire and what additional/ better features they provide over the current HTC Sense? I think I am ready to Root and Customize :)

    Would appreciate inputs from sam9s who has used the custom ROMs earlier on 2,1

    Friends ..... The new HCT Sense for Desire HD has been successfully ported to EVO .... and it looks cool, with number of new awsome features, It should not take much before its successfully ported on other HTC devices as well including Desire ......

    Check out the a comprehensive review of the new Sense UI with a Youtube video of how the ROM looks on EVO ...

    New HTC Desire HD ROM looks Incredible on EVO [ROM Reviews] | andrew | Androinica)

    There is no Best ROM as such. atleast thats what I have experienced. Different ROMs have different advantages, some offer better speed and battery with less features while other offer loads of extra features. Some might not be truly stable with your phone. So its advisable to try out couple of ROMs (after backing up your current one ofcourse) and see which one suits your needs and requirements ....... Head on to Android Forums for more details or XDA Developers.com for reviews on different ROMs .......
