Just sold my blade and like a few others have bought a defy. It must be something in the water
Anyway i love the phone itself. It has a larger screen than the blade yet sits in smaller housing. Have to say motorola have done an outstanding job and i have no complaints about the build quality. I even like some of the apps like mobile wifi hotspot dlna and the data counter which is a great idea (although i am on an unlimted data plan so it is almost irrelevant i think it is still a nice touch).
However i have some questions regarding root recovery and custom roms. Now i aint an android newbie i rooted my hero with a gold card and i think i had to do the same again with the desire and when i first bought the blade last year it was not as easy as it is now to gain root access and install recovery. So what i am saying is i dont think i am a total frump when it comes to android and customising my phone. Yet the defy and the guides regarding root are numerous some are old and picking through them all to find the most up to date and easiest method is quite tough.
So what i need is someone to please just point me in the right direction and give me a link to the standard guide to follow when wanting to gain root install recovery and then run a custom rom. I have decided i will probably install pays (having used his from the old hero/ desire days) or CM7 unless anyone can provide another better alternative.
As i have said i have done quite a lot of reading but still arent 100 per cent up on this and help and pointers would be mucho appreciated.
