  • Want to ‘root’ my phone

    Been considering it a while, and figure it’s about time. My HTC desire’s great, but has so much pre-installed crap that I neither use nor want, all wasting space & battery life for no purpose.
    Seems that putting a non-standard version of Android on there (ie not Vodaphone/O2/etc) allows lots of customising and you can add only the programs you want to use. All this can make the phone quicker, battery last longer, and entire thing feel less crowded. Would also let me get some of the cool bits from the current Gingerbread OS, which is nice.

    A couple of guys at work have recently done their HTC’s, so will have a gas & see if it’s worth the time n effort.

    Actually, think I’ll take a walk and do that now 🙂
