    I have no idea about where & when and who with this will be released for. However, it'll piss out 720p easily. My Galaxy S is able to playback 720p without any issues.

    :D

    I just read a bit on Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) which states that theoretically every device capable of running 2.3 will be capable of running 4.0... So most likely a crippled update or none at all for my Desire. Can't wait for the first ROMs :)

    Even my netbook couldn't sometimes so I was skeptical :p

    Any other 720p phones rumored for the near future?

    Anyone here tried the CM7 stable on Desire? I'm looking for a bit of a comparison between it and OxygenRom

    @Don
    RAZR is/was not definitive of a flip style but moreless the thickness. I think it's going to be chincy and easy to break. I do agree though, lookin' sexy!

    @n-ster
    LOL. VZW gives me the 2 year discount if I sign up for another agreement.

    @IC
    Nexus. I want one.

    @Thrackan
    Oxygen; from taking a quick look it has some optimizations done over the builds of cm7 that were older than it. Meaning if you get the latest build it "should" just run smoother.

    I'll be checking the changelog on Oxygen then, see if it is worth updating my current version.

    Just bought the HTC Desire Just rooting it At the moment seems to be slightly more of a Pain in the A$$ to Root compared to my Zte blade....

    Very nice Phone though, Also going through the list of roms.....


    Just checked my Hboot version and i have 0.93 so im using unrEVOked 3 to Root it.

    PITA? Not at all imho. Using unrEVOked is a piece of cake, and if you need S-OFF, so is Alpharev.

    Alright, got around to trying this and ran into a bit of trouble. Downloaded and ran unrevoked with the appropriate HTC drivers but it said it couldn't root due to the software version.

    I'm on 2.3.3, should I use a different program?

    I recommend trying the ICS launcher from the market. Skins your phone to resemble ice cream sandwich and is pretty light to run.

    just bought a used nook color

    It is very similar to a galaxy tab under the hood. I rooted it myself but their was always some bug to fix but then I found these N2a cards which do all the work for you and are hassel free. Plus who ever designed this version of Gingerbread did a super job so I thought I would pass my recommendation on. Here is its web site and it is a really well developed product and the company provides excellent support http://n2acards.com/home I am a do it yourself kind of guy but getting the market to work on these is a pain and this card in my case was really worth it.
