I have just bought this phone 2 days back.
I think i should give it some time before i can go on experimenting with other roms.
The biggest fear to me is what if i end up bricking my phone?
Can i have your gmail/yahoo messenger id? I have experience of changing roms and rooting galaxy y.But i dnt know how to get started here for dell venue.
Some of the terminilogy is beyond my understandings.
Your good support will be appreciated.
My gtalk id is email@example.com

There is always a risk that what worked for everyone else won't work for you, but it is a very small risk. Most of the time problems have been tracked down to "failure to follow instructions". Even today when I do something to one of my devices, I read the instructions 3 or 4 times, just to make sure I am not skipping over something important.
To get started, load CWM - The instructions are here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1423002
, they do work, with one addition. Under the "install instructions", you need to rename the CWM file downloaded to just recovery.img and put it in the same folder as your fastboot files, then when performing step 5 you can type "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img" and it works just fine.
Once CWM is loaded (make sure to follow all instructions, to include pressing both volume buttons and power to get into it) then you can flash the Olleh GB update (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1416537
), CM7, or MIUI (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1565517
My rule of thumb - read the directions several times before trying something. If it fails, read the directions again, something was probably overlooked or skipped.
I also prefer to keep all correspondence on the XDA site, that way others can gain from the discussion.
