Fantastic website you have here - I'm a newbie and have been lurking for a little while but to be honest, I'm quite confused and could do with some advice.
I'm running stock 2.1 JG2 as purchased from Vodafone UK (8Gb internal + 8Gb SD) but am interested in froyo and some of the improvements that are out there. To be honest, I'm relatively happy with my stock phone, but there is some lag and also the battery life could be better (currently running advanced task killer app but no lag fix).
I've seen some of the custom ROM's and I'm not against upgrading to froyo or flashing my device etc, but I'm not the sort to want to be doing this every month - I'd just like the improvements of froyo (plus other improvements by the good from people here) but for the phone to behave in terms of flexibility like it does today (if better, then great!). i.e I'm just after a fast, stable phone where everything works well and doesn't need tampering with.
What's the best way to upgrade my software to meet my quite simple needs?
Also, is there a step by step guide (for idiots) which can walk someone like me through the process please? (ideally retaining or being able to recover contacts and existing apps if possible).
Thanks in advance.
