Ok, I never rooted my android before and I have the OTA 2.2 Froyo update on an unbranded Desire. After I complete these steps, what do I need to do to install a custom rom?

Thanks!

Root your phone with unrevoked, using on of these guides for example:

Ok for the dumb and ignorant among us (a.k.a me) what state does this leave your phone in.

I get I downgrade HBOOT to 0.80 and my phone will be wiped, but what ROM will be on the phone after the downgrade will it still be the OTA rom or will it be another one?

Or do I then need to install a ROM of my choice after the downgrade, sorry if this is a really stupid question, I haven't put any custom ROM on my Desire yet and then I got the OTA update as I was thinking about checking out some custom stuff. Not had the phone long.

Thanks.

{EDIT} someone beat me to it as I was typing this post thanks for the above!

After you've done the steps above you will have the following:

Blank and wiped device
Firmware: 2.1-update1 UNROOTED!
HBOOT: 0.80
Basband(Radio): 32.36.00.28U_4.06.00.02_2
Kernel: 2.6.29-0cb9f166htc-kernel@18-2#1
Build: 1.21.405.2 CL174215 release-keys

With that you can root and flash anything you want

Has anyone tried this on a branded, but rooted phone?

I've got an O2 branded desire with hb00t 0.83, I can root with unrevoked, but can't boot into recovery =( Hoping this will fix it.
