    How does it compare to wifi? I guess it would only be useful when wifi isn't available, like at work or something.

    Well we have a 20mb (truly) unlimited buisness line to our house, so it is fantastic. very fast for grabbing stuff off the market or youtube/browsing. To be honest if I am sat at my desk, I usually use the reverse tether rather than wifi if I need to grab something on my phone.

    Here's a pic of my homescreen :D

    Have used prime's deprimed kernel, overclocked via script. CPU master, setcpu, virtuous overclock & rom based utilities. So far the most stable was setcpu.

    I´d like to upgrade to Android 4 but my HTC Desire Z does state that there are no updates to its software available.
    I think the only way to go is to root it. Which rom out there is the best?
    Also I need some instructions on rooting - have 0 experience with it.

    No your service will remain the same. you may have to dial a reactivation code but thats no big deal.

    Ok, do you know where to download a custom rom, because I can't find one. My phone sucks because too many Virgin Mobile stuff.

    A LG Optimus V. Yes, it is rooted. I don't know what is "S-OFF." Do I need any app to install the custom rom?

    Here is a list of roms for your phone

    Also please go to the market and download Rom Manager and flash the clockworkmod recovery to your phone.

    Video tutorials to help you

    I have a problem with my rooting procedure and my HTC Desire Z
    (http://murobbs.plaza.fi/taskumuro-puhelimet-taulutietokoneet-ja-muut-mobiililaitteet/780709-htc-desire-z-roottaus-ja-custom-rommit.html)

    After i put in the bold underlined command I get a message:
    Failed to set prot mask (Inappropriate ioctl for devices)

    adb push psneuter /data/local/tmp
    adb push misc_version /data/local/tmp
    adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/tmp/psneuter
    adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/tmp/misc_version
    adb shell /data/local/tmp/psneuter
    adb shell

    I tried the Visionary+ method too but that doesnt work either - gets stuck on rooting device please wait screen.

    SuperOneClick method didnt work too.

    My phone has Android 2.3.3 installed by default so I tried GingerBreak but it was useless.

    Have you tried having a browse of the G2 section on XDA I linked? Try some of the methods in the guide I linked too, If not, try registering on XDA and post in the Q and A section for your phone, someone will help you out for sure.

    I'd suggest downgrading to 2.2 first using the directions in xda. Then rooting should work just fine.

    Now I have problems with flashing a ROM to my phone.
    I installed ROM Manager and flashed ClockworkMod Recovery with it but get a red exclamation mark in a triangle when I want to go to recovery in bootloader.
    It does not go away other than take the phones battery out.
    Are there some alternative methods?
