    If I do get a SGS then I'll definitely be putting a custom Froyo ROM on my phone ASAP. I really like don't the look of the TouchWiz interface and I won't really want to use another App to change it. I like my tech to be clean and quick - no bloat.

    :D

    Keep us posted on how you get on with 'hacking' your SGS.

    I think some providers limited how Tethering works where as a rooted & custom Froyo ROM'd phone has everything that there should be on offer.

    Is it a long process to root these? ive tried a few tutorial and havent been very succesful yet does the usb cable need to be plugged in or not?

    after the getting into HBOOT mode it check the pb00.img and then fails...says main version is older, im running 2.1 OTA im not sure what to do

    I'm afraid I can't tell you that as I don't have an Android phone yet. As always research is key, I'd definitely read and maybe post on the XDA Developers forum, they have a plethora of information on your phone - probably a decent FAQ on how to flash and make custom ROMs.

    So...Rooted the phone using another method i found,then got amons recovery image on it..and now PlainJainV2, downloaded an app called setcpu and we are overclocked from the stock 528mhz to 729mhz, could go a bit further some have had the eris upto 810mhz but it destroys battery life. Setcpu also allows you to setup your own speedstep.

    When I finally decide on a handset I'll most likely downclock my CPU to conserve battery life.

    i got mine rooted and the lag fix installed on my SGS , this lifted the quadrant scores from circa 900 to over 2100 . last night i applied the OC to 1200mhz , and more importantly i set the lower idle speed if you want to 200mhz , this seems to helped battery life a good bit , so you can have the best of both worlds . btw this lifted quadrant to over 2500

    Oh I will, I'm getting really excited about Android just currently other financial obligations are stopping me from purchasing a decent enough contract. As usual, the pros and cons of waiting are kicking me about a-bit.

    If I can, I'll most likely grab myself a Galaxy S next month, if not I may even have to wait until next year.

    :(

    well the 1.5ghz and 2ghz wont be around for a while, read somewhere that by the end of this year there will be dual-core chips in mobile products. Was talk about being in the galaxy s but they decided to wait. should see them in phones by early next year.

    Anyways I have a HTC dream (t-Mobile G1) with the 2200mAh battery with cyanogen rom 5.0.8 Eclair, can't wait till froyo is stable on G1 tried the RC and is definitely faster just buggy like hell and no SWAP yet.
