No worries, Since you're worried regarding your root access. All Roms that you see here are custom ROMs and comes with Prerooted so don't afraid of flashing it.

Just to be safe side, Install latest recovery either CWM or 4ext and backup your Stock or any custom ROM you're on.

Flash Any ROM made for Desire HD. But be aware that if you're S-ON then flash Boot.IMG before or after complete flashing your ROM via HBoot in order to get proper connectivity and your ROM to work properly. If you're S-Off already then no need to flash boot.img since system will take care of it.

Even then you're worried regarding how to flash then type in YouTube for How to flash custom Ron for Desire HD. So that you'll get exact idea about it.

Very important: Make sure your radio and hboot is latest. Or you should running last official update from HTC which is gingerbread 2.3.5 Otherwise you need to upgrade that first prior to flash any custom ROM from any source.

Get on 4.4.3 its latest yet stable.

thank you dr.patron99 am following your instructions and reporting a brief of what ive done so i can get your guidance on how to continue

step 1: made full backup of my phone
step 2: Ive updated my rom manager to v5.5.3.7 and flashed latest recovery available which is clockworkmod 5.0.2.0
step 3: ive run full rom backup once more just to be on safe side (through rom manager) and checked if backup has been created then i transferred backup to my pc and to a thumb drive.

step 4: ive checked to see my S-condition and am on S-OFF so i guess i wont need to flash Boot.IMG right?

step 5: am not sure how to check which one is it or even upgrade radio and hboot to its latest, does country/network operator plays a role here? if yes i live in CY (cyprus) which is a European country and am under 2 network operators CYTA and MTN.
