Hi!

I have DHD from Telus.

I'm about to root my DHD without knowing anything about rooting. So ...

1- After rooting with Ace hack kit. (rooted one time but went back to original had no sound at all) I wanted to know if I flash for exemple Cyanogen or any other ROM, I will be able to get ICS on OTA ?

2- After flashing another ROM will I have to configure anything to get it to work with my oparator (Telus) ?

3- I'm looking forward to put Android Revolution HD or Cyanogen ROM, and wanna get the one with less bugs to start with because I'm really scared doing this manipulation.

Thank you for your help. And sorry if it has been answered.

1. No, you won't, but when it gets released, you can check the forums here and get the rooted version, or install a RUU.
2. It SHOULD be properly set up.
3. If you're asking which one to install, I prefer CM.

First thing to do is make a backup. Thay way if you mess something up or you don't like what you install, you can always revert back.

For now the only thing I can back up is my SD card because I'm not rooted yet. If there is a way to do it without rooting i'll be glad to ear.

Thank you for your support.

Another question...

Will I be able to remove apps like TWITTER or all other apps locked by the phone after root, because this is the main reason for me to get my DHD root ?

Thanks again.

After rooting, get a file manager such as es explorer and enable root explorer and write permissions. Then go to the system >> apps folder and delete. Make a nand backup first just in case.

The best way to back up your entire Rom except the SD card is to flash a custom recovery and do a nandbackup.

You can download a root uninstaller from market like titanium backup.

Also as i understood if i do root to my phone it will change my ROM and even possibly Radio, but i want to be able to go back to what i currently have in case if i will need.
Is there a way to just root without changing anything else perhaps just to get CWM and root?
