    Most people on here are using either Oxygen (my choice) or Cyanogenmod. Pop into the Desire thread for more info.

    I've jumped ship over to GingerVillian, it's been superb so far and much more stable than Oxygen.

    Just out of interest, for those who seem to install new ROMs alot, how do you manage your apps?

    I mean do you download and install them from the market all over again each time or do you have the apk files stored somewhere?

    Back them up using and app like Mybackup Pro, if your rooted it makes life really easy backs up everthing with a few clicks and resorts everything with a click or two aswell, real life saver.

    I'm using GingerVillian, find that more reliable than Oxygen. Was having to hard reset the phone most nights as it crashed using Oxygen during the night, would wake up and find the phone in a reboot loop. Never had an issue with GV.

    I use Titanium Backup - free from marketplace. Create a backup of all apps and data, wipe, install rom, install titanium backup then resotre all apps and date. Fairly pain free process.

    +1 for Cyanogenmod 7 RC1. Been using it a couple of days and it's much more responsive than CM 6.1!

    RC1 works very well on my crappy old GT540, so it must run very quickly on the Desire's faster cpu.
