I have been reading a lot of posts on how to upgrade to a custom ROM and i was trying to avoid having to flash it if possible (would like to stay with android)and let rom manager do it. can that be done? also which one should i try ? i know that this has been answered many times but i don't want to brick it and was looking for some guidance.
Thanks a lot and happy new year to all.
I don't know anything about green CWM red is available on the link provided though if it becomes an issue. You'll need a CWM flashable ROM and it sounds like you want a cleaned up stock version, others seems to have themes and other options you may not want, I didn't, performance is fine but I really didn't want to change the look. In that case you'll want this one:
You'll find a working link in the last few pages of the thread.
Download it to your download directory on the SD which is built in the phone.
Also download this kernel:

In CWM wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache, wipe dalvik cache, format system, format data, format cache, install zip from SD card select ROM and flash then install zip from SD card select kernel and flash then reboot you'll have to uninstall the ATT stuff yourself or not, be careful that you don't remove apps needed by the system to function or by other system apps, most of the stuff with ATT in the name is safe and you need to remove tethering manager to be able to ever tether. Titanium backup root (TB) can uninstall them, be sure to first backup your new stock ROM in CWM before you start making changes because if you rip out the wrong apps you'll need to restore to boot. Use TB to backup an app if your not sure so you might not have to do a full restore. Be patient during boots.
