hi.
i'm getting stuck at step 5.
After booting computer and plugging in the phone i think it doesn't load properly as i get repeated messages saying - sense key : hardware error - (and some other stuff) and then after a bit the screen goes blank but the computer is still on. i'd previously flashed a gingerbread .zip rom onto the phone if that is a problem?

This is for Gparted? Does it work without plugging the phone in?

Nice and easy to follow instructions.

Just have one question. I made partition as showed, but i still have very little room for apps. Do i need to somehow move them to ext partition or move something else to ext partiotion?

Thanks for the instructions !!

I want to unroot my phone, in order to unlock it, then I'll root again.
I have couple of questions:

1) If I take Nandroid backup now that I'm rooted and have custom Rom, can I restore my phone using this backup after I've unroot and root my phone again using same method ?

2) I tried to flash my Desire with shipped RUUs, tried different ones, but none of them worked and they gave me error that the RUU doesn't match my phone or sth .. So someone told me that they have a solution to this. He said I just have to get the rom.zip file from the RUU and rename it to PB99IMG.ZIP and put it in the root of my SD card and using bootloader, I can unroot and go back to stock froyo. The problem is when the bootloader looks into my SD card to find the zip file, it doesn't find it !! I tried different SD cards and changed the name to PB99IMG with and without ".ZIP" and none of them worked !! What am I doing wrong here ?

3) I got an unlock code from interenet, my friends used that website and they unlocked their unrooted HTCs successfully, but I can't because it said I the phone ahs to be unrooted, is that right ?

Many many thanks in advance

You shouldnt have to be unrooted, no. Also, you dont need unlock codes for the desire anymore. See here

The 1GB is supposed to be used for apps. What rom are you using It should be an a2sd+ rom.

To understand this a bit better, pelase read the FAQ in my signature.
